Shi Shi Chosen as Featured Coordinator in The Bride & Bloom!

We are SUPER excited to share our "Featured Coordinator" spot from The Bride & Bloom Spring 2010 issue with you! The Bride & Bloom gave us Pantone's Color of the Year, Turquoise, as a jumping off point for our color palette, and Degas provided the rest of the inspiration with his "Dancers in Pink and Green". See what came to life by clicking the photo below!

We shot on a snowy January day at a private residence, available for limited engagements through Shi Shi Events. It was such fun shooting with Chris & Julie from Z Media - they are so incredible to work with on a photo shoot or wedding day; they always turn out fabulous shots! Thank you guys for all of your hard work that day! We'd also like to thank the rest of our fantastic vendors who made this shoot possible:

Vase to Vase who created the amazing table arrangement, bouquet, and boutonniere.
Wendy Kromer Confections whose cakes are incredible: beyond, beyond, beyond.
Paper Trails who designed and created the invitations and menu card featured from their own in house stock and printing departments. (Wonderful for you DIY brides, or if you have a tight stationery budget.)
Event Source for the lovely event rentals.
La Tavola for the gorgeous linens and chair covers.
L'Nique for the spectacular overlay cloth.

And of course, HUGE thanks to The Bride & Bloom for asking us to be a part of their Spring issue! The Bride & Bloom is one of our favorite magazines because of their commitment to design, and their fabulous layouts. You can pick up the Spring 2010 issue on newsstands now!


Seeking That Perfect Wedding Day Glow?

Here's a new favorite from the staffers at Shi Shi Events - Bliss' Triple Oxygen + C Energizing Cream!

We've test driven this super lightweight, yet ultra moisturizing gel-cream, and it's a new favorite in our personal product arsenals. What makes this cream so darn nifty? It combines the long used skin brightener/complexion booster, Vitamin C, with a Bliss favorite - pure O2 - that instantly gives that "I've had so much beauty sleep, I glow from within!" look. How do we love thee Bliss Triple Oxygen + C Energizing cream? Let us count the ways:

1) You raise our skin to flawless, decidedly dewy new heights.
2) You protect our faces from stress - the stress of finalizing that guest list and the stress of putting said faces out into the polluted world everyday.
3) You cost a mere $54, which is money very well spent.

For the perfect wedding day glow, with just a hint of dew, we think there's nothing better as base than this Bliss wonder!


We ♥ Pinwheels!

We LOVE pinwheels! They're the perfect bit of Spring, all breezy, and whimsical. ♥ We love them with wedding parties, as escort cards, place cards, and in cupcakes! We love them made out of paper, and felt, and plastic! They just make us smile!

Want to make your own pinwheels? Here's a super DIY project from the fabulous folks over at Once Wed http://bit.ly/8mbtIo

Not only do they show you how to make pinwheels, but ribbon wands too! Ribbon wands are great options for guests to wave at a grand exit from ceremony or reception and are super cute to boot!

New Z Media Wedding Film!

We are so thrilled to share this positively stunning clip from Shi Shi clients Heather & Kyle's wedding film!
