Other than weddings...

Anyone that knows anything about me knows that I DO NOT like balloons for weddings or any adult-type shindig. So it came as a surprise to yours truly when I recently found through my good pal at http://www.aminameen.com out about these huge, ginormous 36inch balloons and guess what? I fell in love (happy sigh:)

There are a couple of websites that do carry the deflated ones and then you have to pay for it to be blown up at your local party store (even grocery florist). I got this one on http://www.balloonsfast.com You also have to make tassels to tag to the end of the balloon for a fun and joyous effect, yay!!

It was quite a challenge getting 5 them into my Camry (probably should have rented a minivan or something more reasonable), but here's I am with my proud creation. This was for a baby shower in Franklin Park, NJ. I have to put pix up from the shower soon...

Me and Balloony (as my kids named it)
Voila!

Kemi + Sola




Laitan + Akin



This was a lovely wedding I had the pleasure of working on. The ceremony and the reception were in the same venue at Ariana's Grand in Woodbridge NJ. It was a really fun working with the couple especially since they are good friends of mine. I also liked that they included elements of their fun loving personalities into the wedding, such as having a caricature artist during the cocktail hour




The beautiful backdrop for this setting is the Hyatt hotel lobby in New Brunswick, NJ. It's a perfect shot that blends her colors with the ambiance at the hotel. Just gorgeous:) Smiles Everyone!!!




The cute little boy in the frame is the couple's 5 year old son who also served as the official Best Man! How cute is that:)
