what I love: organic jewelry!

Some of you may be asking yourselves, "what exactly is organic jewelry?" A relevant and solid question. Organic jewelry is that jewelry that has an overwhelming organic quality to it. It is by no means USDA certified. It simply feels as though it could have been borne straight out of Mother Earth herself. Let me give you a taste of some of my favorite "organic" jewellers!

Are those not gorgeous as all get out? A perfect pair of "hoops" in delicious silver! I want them for my own. I'm not gonna lie!

Just for good measure... let me give you a third piece of tasty organic jewelry goodness! I give you an Etsy find:

Amazing, no? You get the true-to-nature look of seaweed adorning your neck without the whole "eco-unfriendliness" associated with actually using real seaweed to make a necklace! Plus, it's gorgeous to boot!

So tell me now: I'm certain that what I love this week is organic jewelry. You love it too?

what I love: happy brides!

I have to admit; it's been a long while since my last "what I love" Wednesday, and I am truly sorry for that! But we've been so busy over here with new clients, weddings and fun - after all it is wedding season! We've been feeling the heat over here, that's for sure! It's all about those details, details, details! But at the end of the day, what's it boil down to a happy bride (and groom)! What I love this week, and every week for that matter, are happy brides. What rekindled this love you might ask?

A little character some know as Mrs Lamb (otherwise known as Melinda of the famed Invited clients, Melinda and Jason!) happened to write an incredibly endearing post about our wedding planning process. In it, she explained to her followers just how much she appreciated us by her side through the process.

In her oh-so kind words, she had this to say about just a few of the items involved in her big day:
"Who stayed at the Opera House on Wednesday to ensure we didn’t pay delivery fees on the holiday? Who set each table setting? Who gave all of the vendors the day of time line? Who coordinated the clean up at the church? Who relentlessly tracked down absentee vendors? Who finished and delivered all of the OOT bags? Who oohed and ahhed at my fitting? Who assured me that my reception dress was off the hook? Who had extra bobby pins for my fascinator? Who delivered all of the presents to the hotel? Who stayed up all night after the reception packing all of the DIY centerpieces and decorations? Who facilitated between us, parents and vendors?
Pavaune. And it was worth every single penny."

Needless to say, what I love this week (and will adore forever) are happy brides. Thank you Mrs Lamb, and thank you to all those brides who have allowed us the opportunity to make your day that much more special!
