Busy little Business!!!

I have been quite busy creating new designs for a photo shoot, filling 2010 wedding orders and building my little Business.  SightForStyle Designs is officially OPEN for business, and I could not be more excited!!

My favourite part of this job, is meeting with Brides and hearing about all of the details of their wedding!  I LOVE weddings and all of the craziness that goes with them.  SO looking forward to attending the Bridal show on January 16th with Megan Paur (owner) of www.paisleyparty&

Here is a sneak peek of an upcoming winter Wedding!  Jenessa's Ring is a sapphire and she wanted to keep those tones througout the details of the wedding.  Enter: PEACOCK FEATHERS!!! Small touches of peacock throught the bridal party and centre pieces tie together this lovely intimate affair at Elk Ridge Resort.

Congrats Jennessa & Leigh...the countdown is on!!!

All about the Accessories

Styling all of the "Looks" of our wedding was a lot of work, but SO much fun.  We decided that we wanted a different dress/outfit for each of our 10 attendants.  Having worked in fashion for a long time, I knew what I wanted and went on the hunt for the right jewellery, dresses, ties etc.  This meant coordinating colors to our theme, but individualizing each look to each personality. 

Here are some detail shots

I was a little unsure of having feather bouquets at our wedding, but after the photos and the fact that I am able to look at my beautiful bouquet everyday--best decision ever! 

Some of my designs are available at Paisley Party & Gift Boutique

Spread the love...

For as long as I can remember I have loved jewellery, hair pieces and all things deemed an ACCESSORY! I love finding unique pieces and love anything with a vintage flair.  It wasn’t until our own wedding that I fell in love with feathers and I quickly found out I was not the only one!  Now, I am happily creating customized pieces for weddings with the finest quality materials.  Here are some of my latest designs!!  If you know someone interested in feather bouquets, hairpieces, veils or belts for their wedding, I can be contacted via email or call 306-291-9598 for more information.

To be, or not to be: no longer a question!

I watched Jule&Julia last night and realized that I deserved a big fail for my blogging attempts.  I was amazed at Julie's commitment to cooking and blogging, so I will attempt blogging first, since cooking is my Sister's forte.

I will choose to link the lack of blogging to being busy, and I have been extremely busy (which is a great thing).  This past spring an extremely talented photographer friend of mine, Karyn Kimberley asked me to come along to style a model (Mandyy March) photo shoot!  I had an awesome day with the Sessions Photography and Image group and it turned into a gig styling the Midtown Plaza Fall Advertising campaign!  Yesterday, I styled the Midtown Christmas campaign and I am excited to see the ads around Saskatoon in November.

In my 29 years, I have been told (from numerous friends) that I should be doing something 'creative'.  Our Wedding was not only the greatest day of my life, but it also allowed me to be a crafter, stylist and designer all in one.  I put my heart, soul and creative mind into the entire day-- from styling the beautiful bridal party to designing a unique wedding alter that I had dreamt about. It was a stressful year, but a great year and I finally listened to my friends and my own heart and ventured out of my corporate comfort zone! 

I searched for the perfect Jewellery for each attendant.  Kim's neckalce came from They Bay.
Feather Boutonnieres for the guys
I like to wrap with beautiful ribbon
and added the first initials of each Bridesmaid

I printed our logo on bags for the candy buffet and made these cones with scrap book paper.  

My jewels consisted of:
Banana Republic earrings, cuff from Frakas, a vintage brooch from my mom & hair pins from The Bay
The picture doesn't do it justice, but I made a wedding wish tree from
Manzanita branches, recycled damask paper & jewels from Michaels.

So now that the wedding is over, I am looking for more Styling opportunties and focused on my next creative endeavour...stay tuned!

Something New

It has been exactly 1 month since I walked blissfully down the aisle and married the man of my dreams.  It has also been a month FREE of all the time-consuming things that come along with planning a wedding (to-do lists, various appointments, crafting sessions, online shopping, vendor meetings and let's not forget the mental breakdowns).  Therefore, I have found myself with an ample amount of free time for this new little blogging adventure!  How exciting!
