come see our new look

(the new colors of Stella Event Design)

Unless you visit this blog via a reader then you’ve probably noticed our new logo, look and color scheme! I used our new color palette as inspiration for our first bridal show booth, and we’re headed out shortly to set it up! I’ll be honest, it has been a whirlwind couple of weeks trying to get everything together for this first bridal show and I’m excited to see how it all turns out!

I’m excited to hear we will have some blog readers stopping by and I can’t wait to meet more of you! We’ll have tons of pictures from weddings to show (some not even shown on the website or blog yet!) and we’ve got several giveaways for you to enter! Wedding World is tomorrow, January 31st from 12:00-3:00 at the Lake Michigan College Mendel Center, with a fashion show to follow from 3:00-4:00.

On Tuesday we’ll be featuring a gorgeous (and fun) polka dot inspired wedding that is one of my new favorites and one you don’t want to miss!

etsy love birds

I love etsy, but I don’t visit nearly enough (or buy enough!). But, I was looking through this morning and saw these darling “love birds” made from rescued wood by Dolan Geiman in Chicago. Absolutely adorable! If you’re not hooked on etsy yet, now is the time to start the habit! I think this would make a really eclectic valentine’s gift (not that my husband would even know what Etsy is!). A girl can dream–but for now I’ll just continue window shopping!
