My Wedding Veil

After months of debating between different style veils I returned to my original favorite style - the pouf veil for my wedding.  There are as many different style veils as there are personalities.  I wanted something different from the rest.  I wanted it to be sexy, yet sophisticated.  The long veils are a bit overdone and don't work on everyone.  I wanted it to be fun and flirty.  I'm so happy that I choose the pouf!  It gives a high fashion flare and it doesn't get in the way of dancing.  You can wear it all night long.  We added russian veiling with the tulle to add some texture.  The front blusher was russian veiling.

Romantic Cake Toppers

Looking for a romantic and sophisticated cake topper?  I had so much trouble trying to find the right cake topper.  For my wedding, I didn't want the generic bride and groom on top of the cake.  At Rice Rafferty we recently made this cake topper for my wedding cake.  The topper is made from fabric petals, leaves, and russian veiling.  We used russian veiling for my veil too, so we kept a consistent theme throughout.  It added such a romantic, Victorian feel.  The perfect compliment to the ivory butter cream piping.  Everyone loved it and it added a more personal touch.
