My Cousin Got Married! Come See Her Gorgeous Wedding & Our Adventurous Trip!

kelly-and-adam-16

(All of the professional photos were taken by King Street Studios)

Awwwe Weddings…who doesn’t Love a wedding? Everyone’s looking fancy, smiling, and excited for the happy couple. There’s a palpable romance in the air and there’s just something absolutely magical about sharing and celebrating LOVE!

It was a real treat to be celebrating my cousin Kelly’s wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. She’s my Mom’s brother’s youngest of two daughters and she was marrying Adam Weiss. They’re a super fun couple who love each other dearly and I’m excited to share their AMAZING wedding with you!

savannah-georgia

Hold your horses for just one minute….before I get to the wedding, we made a little extended trip out of it by first, by visiting Savannah! The Gorgeous, one-of-a-kind Savannah!

It can be tough to get the family together these days, so we wanted to take every chance we can get, and this was a great one!

fam

My sister Lily, my parents and I, all had a ball exploring Savannah Georgia.

You can’t see it too well, so here’s a better picture; I’m wearing one of my favorite tassel necklaces that I made with (non other than) what else, Swarovski Crystals (of course)!

swarovski-crystal-tassel-necklace-for-sale

I handmade this Swarovski Crystal Tassel Necklace using Swarovski Tahitian Pearls and Aquamarine Satin Crystals. The two colors compliment each other so well and I wear it all the time because it goes with practically everything! The navy blue undertones mixed with a sophisticated sparkle, looks especially  nice with jeans. I sprinkled in some Silver Crystal Rhinestone Rondelles (Swarovski is only making the Rhodium now, which is still very nice, just a slightly darker plating) and I added some extra drama above the tassel with the  Swarovski 80101 BeCharmed Pave Beads. The large hole allows for the thread to easily fit through and attach it to the clasp with a jump ring. I just love the clustered pave crystal look!

lily-and-harm-on-the-river

Lily & I capturing the moment along the river. Those twinsies smiles just say it all  🙂

Lily handmade her pearl earrings as well. Making jewelry runs in the family! Luckily our parents taught us at a young age & put our little nimble fingers to work! We all helped out making crystal beaded strands and necklaces for the family business. Then we would all have a ball together selling at art’s and craft fairs. Those are the days I cherish the most! Swarovski…bringing our family together, one crystal at a time  🙂

We loved walking all around Savanna and soaking up the rich culture. Seeing the historic Bonaventure Cemetery was a real treat and we even made it to Tybee Island. We happen to catch a terrific jazz festival, which was a fun way to dance off all the fabulous food we were enjoying!

A fantastic time was had by all…now off to meet our brother Jaia, his wifey Breanna and Lily’s hubby James in Charleston for the wedding!

lily-jaia-and-i

Here’s the Schmidt crew (Harmony, Jaia and Lily). I’m the oldest, but somehow the shortest…how did that happen?

We had a fun, albeit HOT & HUMID Fall day exploring Charleston.

lily-and-harm

We’re all smiles as we head off to the rehearsal dinner!

You can’t really see our jewelry well, but Lily is wearing a necklace and bracelet I made with dainty fresh water pearls in a light cream color mixed with Swarovski Crystals in Rose Satin and  Light Rose Satin. Her dress is actually a baby pink and complimented the dress beautifully.

swarovski_6533-blush_rose_gold-raindrop_pendants

I’m wearing the new Swarovski Crystal 6533-33mm Raindrop Pendants as earrings in Blush Rose with Gold plating. I absolutely ADORE them! I can’t say enough about this gorgeous style. I have worn this shape in different colors of earrings and layered necklaces almost every week since receiving them. I can’t get enough of them!

Every time I wear them, I receive more compliments then the last – honestly it’s my favorite style Swarovski has made – I know I  know – they make so many beautiful styles and I shouldn’t pick favorites – but I can’t help it! It’s won my heart! They are just so elegant and easy to make jewelry with! OK, I think my rant is over, thanks for bearing with me 😉

rehersal-dinner

It’s Rehearsal Dinner Time! Yay!

We had so much fun catching up with the fam! I’m sitting next to my cousin Holly, (Kelly’s sister) who I just LOVE so much! She’s next to her hubby Tim, who is super fun, great guy all around and so glad he’s apart of our family! What a fun night with everyone!

Next up….the BIG day!

family-fun-at-kellie-wedding

Here’s the whole family (minus my hubby Mike). He was a real trooper holding down Rainbows of Light while I go off and play! Well, somebody’s gotta ship those sparkles to you, and although Kashi’s a smart pup, somehow a girl just doesn’t appreciate a bag full of bones in the mail when she’s expecting a bag full of Swarovski Crystals  😉

My Mom is wearing the Swarovski Crystal and Pearl Tassel necklace that I made her for her Birthday! It made me feel so good that she wore it and loves it so much! I made it with Black Swarovski Pearls, Crystal Silver Night, Black Diamond and Crystal Silver Shade beads, along with accents of Gold Black Diamond Rhinestone Rondelles and finished with a Gold clasp. I also added an 80101 BeCharmed Pave Bead in Black Diamond.

My sister-in-law makes jewelry as well and she’s wearing beautiful Swarovski Crystal and Pearl dangle earrings. She makes custom jewelry for all kinds of occasions. Check out all her sparkling goodies at: Crystal-Princess.com

I bet you’ll never guess what earrings I wore to the wedding  😉

swarovski_6533-crystal_silver_night_rhodium-raindrop_pendants

Oh how did you know? Haha…Yep, of course, my fave 6533-33mm Swarovski Crystal Raindrop Pendants in Crystal Silver Night with the Rhodium finish. I told you, I just can’t get enough of them!

kelly-and-adam-17

Here’s the lovely bride and she’s looking more beautiful then EVER!

Kelly is a personal stylist, so this girl KNOWS fashion. She’s wildly successful and so much fun to be around. She’s also one of the most hilarious people I know and loves to have fun with life! Her soon to-be last name is Weiss, so she cleverly named her wedding website Twice The Weiss (too cute!)

kelly-and-adam

This shot is adorable! They’re both so excited to see each other for the first time on their wedding day!

kelly-and-adam-2

Even MORE Adorable!

kelly-and-sue

Here comes the Bride…

She’s escorted down the isle by my wonderful, loving Aunt Sue. We were all tearing up that her Dad, Tom couldn’t be there. Unfortunately he passed away many years ago after his battle with cancer. He was the most fun-loving person, we all loved him very much and I know that he was there in spirit. Kelly embroidered Toms initials on her sash and there were caring sentiments said before a moment of silence to honor him.

kelly-and-adam-5

Even at the alter, Kelly’s doing what she does best…cracking Adam up!

kelly-and-adam-4

Getting married and doing the happy dance!

What a gorgeous wedding party with the rich amethyst and plum tones mixed with natural green hues.

kelly-and-adam-9

The setting was stunning!

kelly-and-adam-8

They had a twist on the traditional sit down dinner, opting for smaller intimate tables inside and out on the balcony, where people could sit wherever they wanted. I loved it!

kelly-and-adam-10

Lets kick off this celebration with their first dance…awe!

kelly-and-adam-11

My cousin Holly gave the best matron of honor toast! It was funny, sweet and heart-warming. I just love this picture, all those smiles just makes me smile!

kelly-and-adam-12

How about some more dancing!

fun-times

And the celebration continues….with a fun sparkling sendoff!

kelly-and-adam-14

A little wardrobe and venue change to get this dance party started!

kelly-and-adam-15

Get your glow sticks on & dance like it’s 19-99!

Needless to say, we danced the rest of the night away.

WOW! What a fun wedding & memorable adventure!

Thanks for coming on this little trip with me & hope you had fun too!

DIY Face Gems ~ Applying Swarovski Crystals to Your Face Is Oh So Fun!

What to be, what to be for Halloween this year?? I didn’t plan my costume out in advance this year, so on the day of I found myself rummaging through our costume/party box full of fun wigs, funky sunglasses & all kinds of comical pieces, one of my favorites being a bright pink cowboy hat. I had just worn the pink cowboy hat, so alas I was uninspired.

Just then a light bulb went off in my mind!

lightbulb-vectoroptics-net

Ah ha! CRYSTALS! I looooove crystals & have them everywhere, so why don’t I embellish my face!

Harmony Halloween 2015

It was so fun, really easy and I always love getting creative!

If I had more time, I would have added a lot more. Who knows maybe next year I’ll be a crystal princess and go all out!

Harmony Halloween 2 2015

I couldn’t find body glue anywhere, so I used eyelash glue and it worked really well. Just a little dab will do ya. I put a tiny dab of glue on my face and used the Crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and apply them to the glue. I pressed down for a few seconds and then it was on to the next. It was that simple!

I was inspired by this gorgeous picture!

Swarovski Crystals on face

I applied different colors and sizes of the Swarovski Crystal 2088 Flatbacks to the areas that I wanted sparkle.

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Amethyst

I started with the 2088-20ss Amethyst and 16ss Amethyst Swarovski Rhinestones.

Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones Clear Crystal Wholesale from Rainbows of Light  Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Crystal AB

I used the 2088-16ss Crystal and 2088-12ss Crystal and Crystal AB for the detailed fill in work.

Swarovski Flatback Rhinestones 2520 Rectangle  Swarovski_5741-Blush_Rose_Heart-Beads

I also used a couple pieces of the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks 2520-10x8mm Cosmic Style as well as the 2808-6mm Heart Flatback Rhinestone (super cute heart, one of my faves!)

Swarovski Crystal Sew on Stones 3223 Nevette stones from Rainbows of Light

I found some of these cute Swarovski Crystal 3223-12mm Nevette Sew On Stones and threw a few of these on. They have a flat back which worked well and I just love this shape. I wanted to add different shapes and colors to make it as unique as possible.

2494 Swarovski Crystal Starlette Flatback Rhinestone from Rainbows of Light  2540 Curvey Swarovski Crystal Flatback

For some dramatic accents I applied the Swarovski Crystal 2494-10mm Starlet Flatbacks as well as the 2540-7mm Curvey Flatback in the beautiful coating of Crystal Paradise Shine.

2709 Swarovski Crystal Rhombus Flatback wholesale from Rainbows of Light

Last but certainly not least, I used the 2709-13mm Rhombus Swarovski Crystal Flatback for the center.

To upgrade your design even further, adding Swarovski Crystal Flat backs to your nails is extremely popular and you can see why, it’s chic and glamorous to enrich your nails with a touch of sparkle.

Swarovski flatbacks

 The smaller crystal sizes are ideal for nail art, such as the 2088-10ss and 2088-12ss. The clear Crystal is especially popular, as it looks very similar to a diamond and the Crystal AB is another favorite, due to the array of yellow, pink and blue rainbow style sparkles. There are also many unique styles to choose from to create a truly personalized design.
