Kim Kardashian "Konnubial"

As reported, Kim Kardashian will finally wed on August 20, 2011.  Per statements and a short video (below) from her bridal shower, her family is extremely excited and looking forward to Kim's walk down the white aisle ... and so are we!



According to the double-K monogrammed wedding invitation, the black-tie event is set to take place in Montecito, California (near Oprah Winfrey's lavish estate).  As with many celebrity couples, specific location information was left off the invitation for security purposes.  But we can count on the paparazzi uncovering this little secret in no time.
It seems Kim has been eager to join her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, in the "larger milestones of life" (marriage and children).  Needless to say, her engagement to NBA player Kris Humphries was no shock.  Albeit, the enormous 20.5 carat engagement ring was quite a surprise.  Whoa!

So as the entertainment world awaits photos and details of what's sure to be an extravagant affair, much speculation has arisen concerning the bride's choice of gown.  It's fair to guess she has endless options, but quite unlikely we'll get a glimpse of the lucky design prior to the wedding day.  Still, it's so much fun to guess, isn't it?  We're thinking Kim may take a que from one of the following fabulous designs:
SIMONE CARVALLI

MARTINA LIANA

GATTINONI

ROSA CLARA

ELIZABETH FILLMORE

HEIDI ELNORA
We're predicting Kim will pull from the one-shoulder trend, infuse a little romance (perhaps with hints of lace) and definitely select a gown that's somewhat form-fitting.  What's your best guess for Kim?

Shirley & Jason: Saree-Style Soirée

We shared snapshots of our Saree-Style Soirée wedding last month and are now marveling at the professional photos that just came in, courtesy of Classic Video & Photography!  Of course, we couldn't wait to share.

It was an awesome day for a wedding ... warm and sunny, blue skies, bright and beautiful.  The bride and groom had a 700-person guest list along with several wedding-day surprises, therefore, our staff worked from noon until the wee hours of the next morning to help it all go off without a hitch.  Big hits included the loving post-ceremony dove release, the lavishly decorated mandap, Dohl players, the photo booth, the chocolate fountain station and our custom-designed purple/gold "Sweets Sideboard." 

This wedding was an extraordinary blend of Indian and American culture and we are so happy Classic Video & Photography was on-site to capture each and every beautiful moment.

Random Relay: June 2011

Happy Summer!
Here's our random relay of spontaneous pics from the month of June 2011 ... just random snapshots and inspirations from my BlackBerry that I thought would be fun to share with our readers.  A quick glimpse into my mind:

"Though my twin babies are only 8 months old, 
I'm pretty dedicated to building their little library"

"Sometimes all you really need to do is look UP"

"One bumper sticker that quickly caught my attention ... Save The Ta-Tas"

"Tickled about my FIRST momAgenda!"

"Pretty Flowers In The City ... I NY"

"Walking along this long road continues to teach me so much"

Quick Look: Golden Gala

The Bridal Party's Golden Gala couple were married on July 2nd at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Englewood and then celebrated at The Royal Manor in Garfield.  We'd worked with the bride for over a year on this event and were really excited to witness everything come full circle.  Almost 500 of the couple's family and friends partied into the night, enjoying a gorgeous mix of Nigerian and American culture, plus our elegantly designed "Sweets Sideboard" that followed their white, ivory and gold color scheme was a huge hit!

We look forward to sharing professional photographs, being that their engagement photo shoot was so successful, but take a quick look at a few amateur snapshots below:


Here's a closer look at the details and decadence of the "Sweets Sideboard" we designed especially for this occasion:
