Fifty Shades of Grey

“You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince” - Fifty Shades of Grey

After reading the captivating and erotic trilogy by E. L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey is definitely on my mind. If you haven't already read it, start now. I found myself turning the pages at lightening speed and becoming completely entranced into the world of Christian Grey. It will make you blush, squirm and giggle...and maybe even the slightest bit curious ;)

I am not suggesting handcuffs, whips or canes at your next affair but I am a big fan of the hue in the book's title. Grey is such an extraordinary shade for your bridesmaids' dresses; it's perfect for all seasons and pairs well with just about any accent color. Grey also photographs beautifully, is flattering on most skin tones and will allow your white gown to pop!

Check out these stunning grey-infused bridal party pics:

Puppy Love

“My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.”  - Author Unknown

For all you dog lovers out there, you can completely relate to me when I tell you that I am over the moon, crazy in love with my precious pup; Romey. My little cutie turned 4 this past weekend, and in honour of her birthday, I’ve decided to showcase wedding day celebrations, where proud dog owners have included their prized pooches in the 'big day'.

But first, check out the sweet face of my Roro;

From baby...
 To big girl...
Other adorable canines...
