Beth from the White Dress by the Shore did a phenomenal job styling these girls on trend, using the polka dot pattern as a chic accent. For great style advice and her recent feature on polka dots, visit The Blushing Blog. I, myself have been obsessed with the classic, quirky print and have been so happy to see it popping up in fashion and now…weddings.

These bridesmaids dresses by Ivy & Aster from The White Dress by the Shore were the perfect deep red to contrast their adorable polka dot clutches. I am so happy that I swapped out their bouquets for this one shot.

I do not know where Jackie from Lord Thompson Manor found these amazing Giant Balloons, but I need more in my life. These were adorned with amazing wide polka dot grosgrain ribbon, just fabulous.

You know that you are setting the standard for the night really high when your first dance leads into the fully rehearsed “Gangnam Style“.

Inspire Photo Seminars | At It Again.

This year, I can say for sure. Cannot be topped. Really? Where do we go from here. Insanely inspirational people all cooped up in one remote hotel in Sturbridge Village (with lots of indoor Gazebos), and this is what you get. Imagine if you took this crew to somewhere far away and inspirational on it’s own?! It would be an inspiration meltdown. This event, INSPIRE goes to show that if you take the right group of people, you can plop them anywhere and make magic. Eric and I are insanely grateful to have the opportunity to partake and share in this great, one of a kind group.

We have pictures in the works. But please watch the video, share, comment and register for 2014! It will be unstoppable.
