Your Guide to Wedding Season

J Crew


We’ve made it past Memorial Day weekend and finally, finally the weather has warmed up and is starting to cooperate. We may have missed out on an official spring, but at least it’s not cold and rainy anymore. Fingers crossed this means that summer is coming and you know what summer means, don’t you? Summer means weddings.

Home Portraits and Art From Heather Shreve


Heather Shreve Art

catch of the day fish (2)They say a picture is worth 1000 words. And while that may be an old cliche, sometimes you can look at a well-made picture and know why that saying has been around this long. It’s artists like Heather Shreve who are able to truly capture the essence of a home or a special moment and put it on canvas. That makes her work an ideal way to commemorate a wedding, to warm a new home, or to celebrate the love that makes that house a home. Shreve has been painting for so long that she estimates she’s spent over 30,000 hours behind a paintbrush. So she’s clearly a master of her craft. Her HOMESCAPES are essentially that– thoughtful portraits of your home, painted from photographs (taken by Shreve herself, if you’re within 40 miles). Children and pets go in the portrait too, of course, since they’re so much of what fills a home with joy. For those looking for the perfect (and truly unique) wedding gift, a piece of wedding art made by Shreve may be just what you’re looking for.

Bow Tie co

catch of the day fish (2)Pee-wee Herman. Karl Marx. Winston Churchill. Groucho Marx. Stan Laurel. Fred Astaire. Karl Lagerfeld. Saul Bellow. And of course, Snagglepuss (you know, the very dapper talking, anthropomorhpic Hanna-Barbera mountain lion). What do all they all have in common? Well, they all always looked great, of course. And why? What can we attribute it to? Mm…. the bow tie. What’s more classic? More sophisticated-yet-fun? And unlike regular old neckties, bow ties can go great with women’s outfits, and even dress up a hair-do. And we’ve got a fantastic local bow-tie company right here in Baltimore, so why not push for a city-wide fashion statement?
