First up: Hollyween! Starting this Saturday at 2pm with Children's Parade [line-up at Holly Foods and ending at Magic Moments with treats from Deihl's Orchard at 3pm] Then head Downtown for Trick-or-Treating from business to business from 4-5pm! 

We had so much fun at this event last year! The kids are so cute in their costumes and say the darndest things!
Check out Kel Leigh's blog post from last year!

I just might have to be a Bridal Fairy this year! Be sure to stop by for fun treats and get your children's photos taken with Kel Leigh [she will later post them for purchasing....so many people wanted her shots last year - she knows how to capture the moment!]

Next up: Ladies Night Out in Downtown Holly! Shoppes are open late with sales & specials abound! Most stores have their own trunk shows and goodies - infact, Kel Leigh & I are hosting a Bridal Show! We will feature vendors of bridal nature at [Hitched in Holly] A Uniquely Intimate Bridal Show between Something Blue Bridal Boutique & Kel Leigh Coale Photography & Design! So far you will get to enjoy: Rock the Booth [photostrip bridal favors....this will be fun for all ladies attending Ladies Night Out & the Bridal Show - a great take home from a great night out!] Bon Appetit [catering samples for your wedding reception] Posh Hair & Makeup Studio [they will be doing the hair and make-up on our live mannequins and will be doing live demos on anyone who would like their eyes re-vamped before stepping into the photo booth!] With Love [reception candy bar] ....and more as we finish rounding out the list! 

Of course Kel Leigh will be showcasing all her photography in her fabulous new space and celebrating 3 years of great photos and talented design work throughout our community! We, at Something Blue Bridal Boutique, will be celebrating our first anniversary and the launch of our new line of bridal gowns by Alfred Angelo! It's so nice to have complimenting businesses next door to each other!

So much fun to be had! Hope to see you there! 

About our Bridal Show poster: 
Kel Leigh and I had the idea after coming across a picture from a 'Friends' episode... appropriately named 'The One With All The Wedding Dresses' ....we thought 'how fun would it be to recreate that picture for our posters!?' And perfect enough that there's myself, Kel Leigh, and her sister, Hol Leigh - who is her second photographer - to make our photo a perfect re-carnation!

So our shot might not have the beer & champagne photographed .....{that's off to the side!} ....but this just might have to become a tradition!

[weekend of love] something blue bridal boutique, holly michigan

I love all things that involve anything to do with marriage!

So [of course] I was excited when my step-brother got down on one knee at his deployment party this weekend to ask Miss J to be his wife!

[BELOW]  Mr. Bill and Miss J just shortly after the proposal! We were all gathered in a circle, holding hands and in prayer for Billy's safe travels off to war....not knowing what he was about to do! {Well, I had a hutch - thanks to good 'ol Facebook...but, it allowed me to have the camera ready!}

There was even fireworks....how appropriate!

I was also thrilled when my brother-in-law text me that his good friends fiance would be coming in to see me soon and another friend told me that her cousin was out ring shopping this weekend!

[Love is in the air!]

[sassy bride] something blue bridal boutique, holly michigan

It just gets me how there is "the one" for every girl!

An unexpected appointment led to finding just that.

Not quite engaged yet, but knowing its coming....Miss C came armed with her mother and mother-in-law-to-be to just start the process!

We were off to a good start with Maggie Sottero's 'Athena'....love the glam that this gown offers!

But it was the second dress that sent her over the moon...La Sposa's gown 'Maderia'

She attempted to try on gowns after that...but sometimes nothing quite compares!

Check out Miss C in her lovely gown! Can't wait until this gown truely becomes her in alterations!

[she had emailed me her email address so I could send her these pictures and in the tag line it said...
{miss c aka sassy bride} ....we kept telling her how sassy she looked and it hooked!]
