Laura & Dan: May 12, 2012

by Ashley in Recent Events | Weddings on June 20, 2012

Alright, alright, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and well I think this will be worth the wait! Last month, we had the pleasure of working with some fantastic couples and Laura and Dan certainly stuck out as one of my favorites! Not only were they extremely sweet and easy going, but their families were amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever had a father of the bride hug me that many times! :) I can’t wait for the next Lange wedding! Lots of love to Laura and Dan! Read More

Meredith & Aaron: April 14, 2012

by Ashley in Recent Events | Weddings on April 26, 2012

It wouldn’t be a Spring wedding in St. Louis without rain and Meredith and Aaron had their fair share! Fortunately, we were lucky enough to have the rain stop right before their April 14th wedding ceremony and the sun came out just in time to take some amazing photos!

Meredith and Aaron live in New York City and hired Dishy to help plan and coordinate their wedding. And let me tell you, it was quite a fun wedding to be a part of! Meredith was able to incorporate her life working in music into the small details of their wedding and the coral and seafoam  colors popped out from every angle! And did I mention the flowers?! AH-MAZING!

My favorite part of the wedding had to be best man speech where he noted that Aaron was following in the Schump family tradition of marrying a woman out of his league – a true testament to a fun loving couple with a tremendous sense of humor! I love my my job! Read More

Jaci & Jon: March 24, 2012

by Ashley in Recent Events | Weddings on March 27, 2012

First off, I think everyone knows how much I adore weddings. But when I have the opportunity to work with good friends, who also happen to work in the wedding industry, my mind us utterly blown. Such was the case with Jon and Jaci Spindler. I can’t even begin to put into words how honored I was that they asked me to help out with their wedding day. Two amazing friends of mine found each other, fell in love, and I got to be there to not only witness it but help pull it all together in the end. WOW. How lucky could I be, right?!?! Read More

A 2012 Grammy Fashion Recap

by Ashley in General on February 16, 2012

Unless you were under a rock (or strategically planning your Valentine’s Day) on Sunday night, you probably caught a part of all of the 2012 Grammy Awards. As a whole, I thought the show was pretty darn good. Memorable performances by Adele, Jennifer Hudson and The Civil Wars far overshadowed the more odd ones, ehem Niki Minaj. And touching shout outs and prayers for Whitney Houston (RIP) kept me on the verge of tears. Yes I said that. I love Whitney!

And when it came to fashion for the evening,  the stars did not disappoint! Sparkles and plunging necklines ruled the red carpet! Here are just a few of my faves from the evening. Hope you enjoy! Read More
