{LOVE} is in the details.

It was Christmas of 2004 when my Mom gave me the Emily Post Wedding Ediquette book.  It was that same year that my Mom and I both saw in me something that would be nothing more than a dream until nearly six years later.

Today, Charli and Cleo, LLC was created. 

Charli and Cleo

Couture Event Design

Has a pretty, alright ring to it I think:)

I do not remember exactly where I was or when I began clipping everything wedding, flowers, photographs, pretty plates and tables out of magazines but I will forever remember how I felt today, seeing for the first time, the first tiny step to make such an incredibly huge dream begin to become reality.

It was nearly six years ago that I received the book and nearly six years ago to the day that I lost my Grandpa Cleo.  He was the world to me and the most supportive, inspirational person to ever grace my life.  I love that his name and my dreams will sustain forever in time with this venture.  He is in my heart and the best example of what I am.

Thank you to my Mom for supporting and instilling in me the necessary tools to get me here.  I am forever grateful and blessed to be joined in this life by such and amazing woman.  I love you!

Here is to new beginnings, pretty paper, peonias, pink and people in love…

Head over heels for Sugar Paper

The ladies of Sugar Paper Los Angeles define the word “pretty” when it comes to stationary.  They have the most elegant and timeless invites, calling cards, holiday cards and everything in between!  As I am starting to establish my own brand, I am beginning to relate to designers who produce products simliar to my own style, they are sure to shine at first impression business and calling cards.  I am having 2010 fever I think and this calendar has me smitten!  Check it out:

Wedding Buzz!

Since the feature of our wedding, I have had so many people asking about the details and hoping to see more photos.  I will add more photos here, there are so many that I couldn’t possibly add them all!  Jenna and Matt from Jenna Walker Photographers did not miss one moment, they did an amazing job and not only are they great photogs, they are great people and always a blast!

Without a doubt you have all read the post on the Little Black Book over at SMP and the most asked question… my hair.  Who did it?  I actually did my own hair that day and without a trial run.  It was super easy and turned out just how I had hope.  The secret is Kenra, Big Sexy Hair AND Bumble and Bumble hairspray.  Haha, I had people spraying that hair from all angles and all times:)  The method of the messy, glam look was easy.  Naturally I have super curly hair but straightened it for the day and curled and pinned into large pincurls, SPRAY, I let my hair sit for a few while a great friend did my make up and then took out those curls, I didn’t brush them out just softened them a bit with my hands and pinned up them again in no specific order and SPRAY.  I wasn’t going for a perfect curled look, I wanted a stylish, imperfect style that fit me.  It was great and held up very well… I still had the same do in Mexico… 2 days later:)

My husband was super excited about the SMP feature, he really is supportive, I have to share the picture that didnt’ make the cut over at SMP that was a highlight for him.   The fire helmet replica grooms cake… it turned out SO well. A detail that really helped to make our wedding our own!

We worked so hard on the details of our wedding, we were thrilled that we got such a positive reaction!  Here are some photos of our sweet day!
