We're back! This summer season was fabulous! So fabulous that it really didn't allow too much time for blogging. But I want you to know we are still here and there is so much to share!

In addition to a wonderful spring and summer season, I am excited to share that I am going to be a "Mother of the Groom".... well, one day. I am expecting our first, a boy, in November. So one day, 20-something plus years later (or even later than that) I will be an "MOG"! Between feedings and naps I plan to share all this year's goodness and then some. 

In the meantime, here is a look at one of our June weddings that was featured in the Toledo City Paper's, City Weddings guide. More from this gorgeous wedding will be blogged. It will probably take a few posts just to get all the details shared. But we cannot say enough wonderful things about this couple. And it was so kind of them to share their great experience with us. Check it out! (and you can read the guide online here.)

If you don't know what Washi Tape is yet then check out these easy Washi Tape wedding ideas. Washi Tape is like a very-pretty-crafty-fun-decorating paper tape. Its the pretty cousin to ugly masking tape. 

Washi Tape is made of natural fibers like bamboo or hemp, but most commonly from the bark of native Japanese trees — the mulberry, the mitsumata shrub or the gampi tree. Washi Tapes can be as strong as duct tape! But its best known to be functional as well as pretty and an easy way to add to spruce up any wedding item.
