A beautiful, intimate wedding....

Photos by Jack Young Photography

nce in a great while, there are no words that can accurately describe the amazing weddings and events we are honored to be a part of. The gorgeous wedding that we were blessed to be a part of last weekend was one of those 'amazing' ones.

The bride was beyond gorgeous - a Southern Belle with class and grace that came so naturally it was breathtaking. The groom - a handsome, self-described 'type A' executive with a heart of gold and the same amazing taste as his lovely bride. Talk about a match made in heaven.

It was our joy to work with them and their family to make their long-dreamed of fairy-tale wedding come true. We are chalking them up to 'our favorites' and look forward to hearing more about their honeymoon and life beyond.

Lucky us. Congrats, Robin & Brian. Thanks for letting us be a part of this amazing day.

Love always,

Up and coming wedding planners!

Lots of DIY fun happened at our Edmonds studio this past Tuesday evening. Maude May and I ("the Good Taste Gals") are teaching a wedding planning class through The Wedding Planning Institute at the Everett Community College. Tuesday night Maude took the students on a fun and educational 'field trip' and had an invite and favor extravaganza at our Good Taste DIY studio. The students are now walking 'invite encyclopedias' - they learned everything from informal to formal wording and what should and should not (where the couple is registered for wedding gifts!!!!) go into a wedding invitation package.

The girls created lovely favors (full of chocolates, of course), in our DIYTM studio. Here they are with their pretty creations.

Happy Mothers Day!

I am truly Blessed.

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends - but only one mother in the whole world.

Give me Moore!!!! Amazing jewelry & accessories by Heather Moore

Last night I stopped in one of my favorite local boutiques in our local town of Edmonds called C'est la vie. They always have unique, high quality, and fun items in stock. Even if I'm not in a buying mood, their store is so bright and happy that you feel good just browsing!

When I was there, the lovely owners showed me one of their latest lines that they're carrying and I fell in love. Heather Moore is the artist and her jewelry is out of this world. Completely personalized with gold or silver tokens with quotes, dates, name and real gems make each piece a work of art.

Take a look at her work when you need the perfect gift for that very special someone. She also has 'add on' bracelets and necklaces so you can start with a basic charm and add to it over birthdays and anniversary dates.

How fun to provide a groom with cuff links with his wedding date, your Mom with names of all her children, or girlfriends with some inspirational quotes?
