Classic Bride Feature

Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to the Kansas City Junior League Holiday Mart Dec/Ops Committee set-up shift I go! For those of you in the KC area, Holiday Mart, the Junior League’s biggest event and a great holiday shopping experience, is happening THIS WEEKEND! Get yo’ tickets and get downtown to do some serious shopping! It’s always a blast and we have some great new retailers this year! Now, since I don’t write my posts ahead of time (wish I did, but I don’t) I am going to defer to someone else, Sarah Darcy at Classic Bride blog, who featured my  our wedding on her blog yesterday! Check it out! -¬ LizBanfield 7131.34.2012.21 low_res

Style Me Pretty Feature


Yippee! This wedding was so fun to work on– from designing the overall “brand” with the colors, design elements and monogram, to picking out the stir sticks and frames to give  the reception those extra special touches, everything just came together wonderfully! Plus I obviously had blast designing that paper suite, sketching out the florals for Botanica to bring to life, and did I mention the LUCITE menus that we had calligraphed and the custom table toppers with that fab coral lattice? I want to do it all again! Check out this fun, fresh, Florida wedding on Style Me Pretty! Have a great weekend! -Xs

Gasparilla Inn Wedding

And I’m back! Well, technically I was back last week, but I was fighting a cold and planning a rather *important* party that Marc and I hosted yesterday (details tomorrow on this here blog, y’all!), so I played hooky from blogging. I apologize! And I think these pictures, a sneak peek, if you will, of my wedding in Boca Grande will be a nice peace offering. Check out the beachy perfection– I did the design and planning, but this wonderful family and beautiful bride make these photos by the talented Nicki at Vitalic totally amazing! I’ll add some more details and show off the paper products in another post… can’t give this one all away at once! gasparilla-inn-wedding_01 gasparilla-inn-wedding_02 gasparilla-inn-wedding_03 gasparilla-inn-wedding_04 gasparilla-inn-wedding_05 gasparilla-inn-wedding_06 gasparilla-inn-wedding_07 gasparilla-inn-wedding_09 gasparilla-inn-wedding_10 gasparilla-inn-wedding_12 gasparilla-inn-wedding_14 gasparilla-inn-wedding_17 gasparilla-inn-wedding_20 gasparilla-inn-wedding_31 gasparilla-inn-wedding_32 gasparilla-inn-wedding_33 gasparilla-inn-wedding_34 gasparilla-inn-wedding_35 gasparilla-inn-wedding_38 gasparilla-inn-wedding_40
