Happy Monday!  Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite ideas- Chic Sketch! Chic Sketch is a live fashion illustration service and a new & innovative way to turn your wedding photos and guests into custom fashion sketches.

– Wedding Chic Sketch Kiosk with real fashion illustrators. It’s like a photo booth but better, because we sketch you and your guests!

– Pre Wedding and Post Wedding Sketches- On this note, I think having sketches of each of your bridesmaids done to ask them to be a bridesmaid would be such a sweet and personal idea.  And, using your sketch on to make custom notecards with your new married name after the wedding would be so great!

-They are also starting to make great gift items like cell phone covers and picture frames, which would also be a fabulous engagement gift for any friends getting married, hostess gift around the holidays, or wedding party gifts.

This summer, I had the honor speaking at the Destination Wedding Planners Congress in Florence, Italy. During the little downtime I had, I walked and walked to explore the city. The thing I kept noticing the most was all of the amazing doors! Here is a roundup of some of my favorites for this Travel Tuesday.

The other thing that I found incredible was the attention to detail many of these doors had. From carved panels, to guilded pieces, and forged door knockers, there was so much to see even up close.

I was so inspired by all of the color and beauty I saw, I came home and painted my front door green!

So much of our love for weddings has to do with design and creating the perfect experience for our clients and their guests. That of course involves senses- sight, smell, hearing, etc. which one usually associates colors and the emotions they evoke with, but I have always loved the pure beauty of black and white photography.  You can still get so much emotion from the simplest and loveliest image even with no color. Here is a round up of some of our favorite images.

Most photographers, print or digital, traditional or modern, etc usually provide a mixture of black and white and color images, but it’s worth discussing when choosing the perfect photographer.
