I had the pleasure of styling this small and lovely wedding at the gorgeous home of the brides Aunt and Uncle, Bob and Ann. What lovely hospitality they gave from their hearts and this was so fresh and unencumbered with the stresses of a large affair. The flowers were created by the ever so amazing Evergreen Florist, the best in the whole northwest. The cake was designed by Sweet Frosting, one layer salted caramel, and the other chocolate. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The food it was decided upon, would be light hors d’oeuvres since the ceremony would take place at 6:30pm. The food was all planned and prepared by scratch by the brides grandmother Janet. Janet you are such a loving spirit and God has truly gifted you in your heart to serve in this manner. My heart is full of joy having had been involved in this wedding and it was so sweet to give them the best that I had to give. Jeremy is stationed in the service at Fairchild Air Force Base and Linzy is working in Spokane. Here is their love day!
I am over the moon excited to share with you my new website for Romancing the Stone Styling Event Design services. As many of you know, I have been styling for a while now and I am long overdue in getting this site up and running. There are many exciting things to share with all of you on the agenda for this year. Meg from Easy Dreamer Photography and I are working feverishly on a big project in which we are so excited to share with everyone. On April 10th, I am styling a fashion shoot at the Davenport for an amazing young talent, would be Fashionista, and her name is Kirsten Longley. Her designs blew me away and I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to help her promote her work and be discovered. She will be showing her new collection on May 5th and it is a must be there event. More on where she will be showing her runway designs in a later post. Please visit my site and let me know what you all think. I really value your opinion each and every one of you. Chow for now!
When conceptualizing this romantic photo shoot, we wanted a gilded ballroom and two hearts that had been bitten by cupids arrow. I adore beautiful foods and fluffy clouded cakes that appear to be floating in the sky. What is more Valentine’s Day than red hearts, sugar, romantic ballrooms, gilded corbals, the color pink, ballet toe shoes, and a lacy ballroom wedding gown in full swing motion? Tulle abounds and rolls through this entire post. Valentine’s day weddings never tasted so good! Take note of the gorgeous flowers, so creatively done by Jenna at Fleurtations Floral, the beautiful finger foods and confections by A Couple of Chefs Catering, and the vintage elements infused by Romancing the Stone Styling. Meg with Easy Dreamer Photography once again captures this with dream like quality. For more eye candy and goodness, check out our video documentation produced by Jessica Roy at www.royjoy.com. Happy Love Day!

Valentines day is just around the corner! I cannot believe that I have not posted since November. So much has happened since then, Thanksgiving, a birthday, Christmas, and New Years! Oh yes, I just became a grandma for the 6th time last week on Wednesday. Little Aiden, he weighed 6 pounds and 13 ounces and was 21 inches long. What a handsome little man! So excited to be a part of his life and all my other amazing grandchildren for that matter. Winter is especially sweet for us as we get to catch up on our families lives and really enjoy them to the fullest. I also want to let you know that another one of my styled shoots will be featured the week of February 6th on http://www.greenweddingshoes.com. Meg, from http://www.easydreamerphotography.com and I teamed up this summer to do an amazing bridal shoot that is to die for. I am also thrilled to feature a Valentines day shoot we just completed at the Davenport this past week. We are hoping to have it featured on a national blog around Valentines day. It is the most beautiful project to date that I think I have had the pleasure of styling! Romancing the Stone Styling is growing everyday and I could not be happier. You can view my styling work on my facebook page, Romancing the Stone Styling. Enjoy all the prettiness! Love to you, Pam

We survived our 2011 wedding season and I must say it was the best year ever! It is such a pleasure to be doing what you love, it makes our work less work. We just returned from a mini vacation, road trip, to Zion National Park, Bryce National Park and the Grand Canyon. We also stopped in Vegas for a bronzing tan before we headed home! I must say that the 87 degree weather has got me wanting to go back. In reality and truth, I am glad to be home and let me just say I am loving this time of year. Fall is peaceful, quiet, and still. Despite the chill in the air, the colors are warming and inviting. Love that the sun is lower in the sky and shadowy. Grab a cup of cider and enjoy the warmth out your window. Until later..
We put 12 miles on those tennis shoes that day in Zion. Awesome!
The grand-daddy of them all, The Grand Canyon.
Wow, every once in a while I hit the jackpot and todays post is just that! I adore working with great photographers but even more I truly swoon over working with mega-gifted photographers. Meg from www.easydreamerphotography.com is just that. My Bounty of Summer she photographed, and this french market inspired shoot we collaborated together as well. Meg and I have had a lot of fun together this summer on a few projects that we have done. Her soft, romantic style is just the fit for Belle Victorian Gardens. I have longed to find this kind of art to represent our wedding venue. Meg, you are a true talent and we are so fortunate to have you in our area to capture special events in all of our lives. This engagement session was born out of our love of color and again the richness of fall and its glorious bounty. Thanks to Stasha and Justin, you both are the sweetest young couple and I adore you! *The first 6 photos were taken by Easy Dreamer and the rest were taken by myself.
