Passport to France…

Passports to your destination in an old suitcase….one of my favorite idea for table seating….for a beautiful wedding I attended this last fall.

The passports were hand written and type from an old type-writer another nice idea.

They had taken the time to write about every single guest ! Quite impressive !

Final destination the Paris France table…..


beautiful papertries for a beautiful wedding….

Have a wonderful week

2011 in review…

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people.  This blog was viewed about 11,000 times in 2011.  If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

In 2011, there were 66 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 75 posts. There were 232 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 196mb. That’s about 4 pictures per week.

The busiest day of the year was December 5th with 330 views. The most popular post that day was Brian and Lilly...

A great place for a photo shoot …

San Francisco’s ‘ Palace of Fine Arts’ is a great place for a wedding, or an engagement photo shoot. I took these pictures this last week when we went on  our week vacation up the California coast . I came upon this beautiful and enchanting place pretty close to the Golden Gate Bridge. I soften these photos to give them a dreamy look… The time of day is very important to get the soft dreamy colors of these photos also.

So if you are planning a very Romantic photo shoot this is the place !

Yes, I will do destination photo shoots and Weddings…
