Best of 2008

Today is Tax Day and that usually doesn’t make for the happiest day for most, but hopefully this post will brighten it up a little for you.

Presenting the Best of 2008 brought to you by…

Best Proposal

This might have been the only proposal that GH Kim shot last year, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that this proposal was truly dynamite, just like TNT.

Best Engagement Look

Michelle and Quoc looked spot-on in dressy casual chic.

Best Ring

In a sea of round and princess cuts, Lauren’s pear-shaped ring stood out to be unique and gorgeous.

Best Shoes

Red is a color of strength, passion, and love. When a woman wears a pair of red high heels, it doesn’t go unnoticed, and that definitely was the case with Kathy’s pair.

Best Bouquet

This was a no brainer as ranunculus are my absolute favorite blooms (I even had them in my own bouquet). Michelle’s bouquet is so soft and delicately pretty.

Best Hair

Monique’s hair was exquisitely crafted into a low, side chignon with a wrap around braid by Angalina Sandoval. And the birdcage veil added a lovely touch.

Best Bridesmaid Dresses

Now Jamie did well in ensuring that her bridesmaids would really really be able to wear these short navy blue dresses with pockets again. Complimented with chartreuse green shoes and shawls, this color combination is sophisticated and fresh.

Best Decor

This aisle runner says it all. Our DIY bride Vivien, incorporated her favorite color, peacock blue, into everything.

Best Cake

All throughout their reception, guests of Joanne and Jaime constantly swarmed around the cake table, oohing and aahing at the adorableness of the cake topper and the perfection of the cake.

Best Performance

Stephen and his groomsman pulled out all the stops and gave a memorable performance for Michelle and all their guests.

Best Venue

It was extremely hard choosing all of these, but especially in this next category. So I ended up choosing two that were completely different from each other. One of them, a breathtaking locale in Tulum, Mexico where Sarah and Clay hosted their celebration. And the other, Carrie and Jeffrey’s historic and nostalgic setting at Seattle’s Union Station.

Best Groom Attire

Scott is someone who moves to the beat of his own drum and that shows even in the way he dresses. I was hoping that one of our grooms would show up in a grey suit and it happened, pin-striped at that!

Best Dress

The moment I saw this dress hanging in Julie’s hotel room, I just knew it was going to be my favorite dress of the year! What’s not to love about this ethereal empire gown with floral embroidery and ruched tulle? And it’s pure coincidence that I picked another Amsale gown two years in a row.

Best Overall Wedding

Each and every wedding is so special because of the energy and personal touch that each couple puts into it, but there was one particular wedding that went above and beyond in taking care of EVERY. LAST. DETAIL. The romantic Parisian theme fused with a black, white and fuschia palette was interspersed throughout, making the celebration aesthetically seamless. And I’m sure it didn’t hurt to have the fabulous Maegan of Bridezilla Events coordinating their special day.

Best Groomsman

Last but certainly not least, my hubby who was workin’ the camera like no other.

You both truly do that!
