Ray LaMontagne

His music are so intricate and infectious...

You Are The Best Thing

It's been a long day, baby
Things ain't been going my way
And now i need you here
To clear my mind all the time

And baby
The way you move me, it's crazy
It's like you see right through me
And make it easier
Believe me, you don't even have to try

Oh, because
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, baby)
You are the best thing
(you're the best thing, oooh)
Ever happened to me

We've come a long way
And baby
You know i hope and i pray
That you believe me
When i say this love will never fade away


Both of us had no love before
(to come on promising like a spring to walk on out the door)?
Our words are strong and our hearts are kind
Let me tell you just exactly what's on my mind

[chorus x2]

Hold You In My Arms

When you came to me with your bad dreams and your fears
It was easy to see that you'd been crying
Seems like everywhere you turn catastrophe it reigns
But who really profits from the dying
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you in my arms forever

When you kissed my lips with my mouth so full of questions
It's my worried mind that you quiet
Place your hands on my face
Close my eyes and say
Love is a poor man's food
Don't prophesize
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever
And I could hold you in my arms
I could hold you forever

So now we see how it is
This fist begets the spear
Weapons of war
Symptoms of madness
Don't let your eyes refuse to see
Don't let your ears refuse to hear
Or you ain't never going to shake this sense of sadness
I could hold you in my arms
I could hold on forever
And I could hold you in my arms
I could hold forever

Eco- Friendly Elegance...

It's the idea of having an floral themed wedding without the use of actual flowers!

Using sustainable eco-friendly fabric is a huge trend in the fashion world right now, and wedding fashion is no exception. Materials like organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, and soy blend fabric have a lower impact on the environment than traditional formal wear fabric, and they look and feel just as great – if not better!

We ♥ : Bridal Head Pieces

Gone is the day that a veil is the only accessory acceptable for a bride to wear on top of her head. Bridal hair pieces are a really hot trend right now that I'm simply loving! These little handmade pieces are absolutely stunning! A little vintage, a little glam & even a little whimsical, these hair pieces stand out to me as being unique & romantic. I just love this look & I absolutely think that this trend is going to stick around for a while. It's definitely a throw back to years gone by & incredibly classic looking. So if you are looking to add some uniqueness to your attire- consider one of these pretty little pieces.

Check out these lovelies!

I just love how whimsical these are!

Chandelier of Memories

Every time I think I'm tiring of Pottery Barn, they do something to reel me right back in. This time it was a paper chandelier. Seriously, how great is that?! As soon as I saw it, I starting thinking how sweet and sentimental it would be to cover it with memories - sepia-toned photos, movie stubs, love notes, pages from favorite books, photobooth strips - and, of course, display at a wedding. I think it would be fab to place a paper chandelier over every table and bonus points if you figured out a way to actually illuminate it ... it could spur great conversations among guests and you could include memories of your coupledom {is that a word?} as well as childhood memories from both your pasts. Love it?

Joanne Chew and Matthew Gan

The Bridal Portrait Locale
The city of London, United Kingdom

The Inspiration
Joanne and Matthew loved the Old English Gothic architecture – with stretches of shopping districts in a fast moving, cosmopolitan city, London- and knew it would be the perfect canvas for the glamorous and edgy bridal portraits they'd envisioned. The wedding photographer, Jon Low and I brought this vision to life by accenting it with simple yet edgy wedding gown and glamorous red evening dresses photographed at most the hotspots in London.

The Bride wore
Joanne started shopping for her wedding dress as soon as she became engaged to Matthew Gan. And when she fell in love with one of the sketches I had for my 2010 Collection, she was elated- then skeptical. Happily, an additional shopping trip only confirmed that the dress she singled out- a strapless sweetheart neckline, draped with French tulle trumpet gown and finished with teardrop Swarovski crystals and gold colored beads resembling the peacock feather lines at the top. As for the evening dress, she wants the red color to be the center of attention. Therefore, I got the dress done with no beads finishing but the dress was fully bloomed with handmade chiffon flowers at the shoulder right to her lower back of the dress. She had her hair and make up done all by herself!

The Groom wore
Matthew accented his white linen suit for the day and black tuxedo for night, both by D&G.

The Photographer
Joanne and Matthew were amazed by Jon Low's work and trusted him to have their wedding portraits done. Jon's god-given talent just fits perfectly in with this edgy and glamorous London Calling theme!
