Outdoor Archives I have a stunning wedding for you today from Stacy Paul Photography. It comes from sunny Florida, but today features somewhat of a wet wedding. This beautiful rustic wedding includes an outdoor ceremony and barn reception, and even though the rain poured down hours before the ceremony Bethany and Brad didn’t let this dampen their day. Today’s wedding sees us head across to Zakynthos in Greece for this beautiful sunshine filled Greek Wedding by Robbins Photographic. Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a good weekend? I just love todays wedding and one of the main reasons is that it takes place in Ibiza, where I was married. Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for the week ahead?

Budget wedding ideas, Spokane wedding venues | Apple Brides I received an e-mail a couple weeks ago from a very sweet bride asking me a very real and honest question. Can you plan a decent wedding in the Spokane area for $5,000-$6,000? We’re getting very real here at Apple Brides today! Firstly, I have to preface this with saying that I firmly believe weddings are worth spending money on, an opinion I’ve fought for ever since I joined the industry. But I also firmly believe that money, in itself, does not make a good wedding and that you can celebrate your marriage without breaking the bank. Image by Flat 4 Photography Here was the e-mail I received… “I would like to ask you a realistic question, do you think that it’s possible to throw a decent wedding on a budget of $5,000 possible $6,000? My reply… In short, yes, I do think you can have a wedding for $5-6,000, but I think you have to reevaluate your priorities and perceptions of a “wedding”. What are our top 3 priorities for our wedding? Here are some more ideas: Keep the guest list small. DIY.

The Bedside Bookmark Abode...Or, How to Make a Tiny, Adorable Wooden House Curbly-Original There are a few things that simply seem to belong on a bedside table: a lamp, alarm clock, perhaps a pair of glasses, and a few magazines or books. Then, once you add a few personal items (mine usually include a crossword puzzle or two and a glass of water), and there's not a lot of extra space for any accessories or "decor" items. So, I wanted to make something to add a little bit of fun and style, but that doesn't take up too much prime nightstand real estate or interfere with the other items.And so, you see the results above: an alternative take on the bookmark (which I never seem to use anyway), in the form of a clean, Scandinavian-style wooden home. If using it to support your books isn't your thing, no worries. 1) I began with a 4" x 6" x 14" block of reclaimed wood (basswood, I think) that I found in the scrap aisle of my local Habitat for Humanity Restore. ...and come up with a nice, square usuable block: 2. Then, I cut the out the roof shape: 3. 4. How fun!

Design Itch: Before & After: Office Chair Update This weekend I gave our comfortable yet eye-sore-of-an-office chair a make-over. Here's the chair's mug-shots: I started by taping off the wheels and fabric chair seat and then using two cans of Valspar's Rigid Plastic Spray Paint to paint the plastic black frame a vibrant red. I figure if I am going to breath new life into this chair I should go for it, so there is nothing subtle about this solution. I then used one yard of indoor/outdoor fabric I picked up at Jo Anne Fabrics for $9 to re-cover the chair's seat and back. To re-upholster the chair back I laid a 1/2 yard of fabric over the back, tucked it into the chair frame at the top and using Scotch Super 77 Multi-Purpose spray adhesive (it is amazing and dries quick!) Spray, smooth, tuck! I did use some painters tape around the frame of the chair so the adhesive wouldn't get on it, as that would have left a horrible sticky residue. For the seat I loosened the bottom portion of the seat to leave room to tuck fabric. -Griffin
