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!

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!

Spring/Summer Swarovski Color, Jewelry Trends & Style Inspiration ~ Focusing on the Progressive Trend: WATER

Swarovski Blue Color inspirations

New Swarovski Crystal Spring and Summer 2017 Innovations:

The Balance of Nature Focusing on The Progressive Trend WATER

WATER is arguably the most fundamental and powerful of all life forces. Water is essential to life, we simply cannot survive without it. Water is dynamic. It can be both devastatingly violent, or tranquil and calming. Whether we celebrate its depth and stillness, or simply gaze it in contemplative awe – water with its symbolic sense of rebirth and renewal, is influencing our life in new ways and holding the design world in thrall.

Swarovski Color and Jewelry Trends Spring Summer 2017

So often we look to nature to inspire us in many aspects of our life and water is shaping our world in a variety of new ways. Wellness spas centered on water and hydrotherapy are on the rise, while aquariums and underwater hotels help to highlight the inherent beauty of the marine environment.

Swarovski Crystal Water color and jewelry trends Spring Summer Innovations

Fashion and Jewelry Trends

Jewelry designs, fashion motifs and home decor that echo the brilliant hues of coral reefs, draw our attention to the need to preserve these fragile marine environments. They help us to be more mindful in protecting  our natural habitat and help us to be aware that clean water and keeping our ecosystems pristine, is inherently vital to our continued wellbeing.

Our fascination of underwater life continues grow and trend, where mysterious creatures and new fantastic crystal shapes, such as the New Swarovski Crystal 2612 Jelly Fish Flatback and 1695 Sea Urchin Round Stone, lend endless inspiration to designers.

Céline Cousteau, the granddaughter of the ocean explorer Jacques Yves Cousteau, does not only follow in his footsteps as a celebrated filmmaker. She is also a humanitarian and environmentalist, committed to saving the treasures in the depths of the oceans for future generations.

She collaborated with Swarovski for these Spring/Summer Innovations, to bring the depths of aquatic elements on land and crystallize them for all to enjoy! By creating pieces to wear, these styles help us to honor our connection to the oceans and nature itself.

BODY-CON FASHION ATHLEISURE TREND INCORPORATING CRYSTALS

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear trend

(Athleisure Wear Trend Pictures Compliments of SWAROVSKI)

Athleisure wear continues to be very popular with the idea that athletic wear can also be stylish and upgraded with embellishments using Swarovski Crystal Sew-On Stones, Swarovski Crystal Buttons and Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones. Fashion focuses on form with easy-to-wear pieces in bright hues, boldly decorated with crystal for a new day-wear design aesthetic.

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear Rock this popular trend

To make your Athleisure tops more fashionable, apply Transfers or Crystal Tex to add a bit of glamour. Geometric shapes arranged with an organic feel are especially popular. (please Contact Me for ordering details)

Athletic wear will continue to be very popular. The trend is moving towards embellishing athletic wear with Crystals and creating designs that can be dressy enough to transition from workouts into day activities, even work (if permitted), and (sometimes) even day into evening. It’s all about being able to transition from the gym or your yoga/palates class into your daily life, seamlessly. To do this well, your athletic wear needs to be fashionable and accessorized with crystals. (Any chance to add more Crystals into my life, well, what’s not to LOVE?!!)

DIY Instructions on Applying Swarovski Crystals to Sports Pants

MOVEMENT

Jewelry designs and embellished fabrics will embrace shapes generated by the movement of water – undulating, wavy elements are heavily embellished with crystal.

The fluidity of modern lifestyles extends into fashion. Glittering crystal components reflect the beauty of light on water.

Swarovski New Innovations Spring Summer 2017

SLEEK

Swarovski Crystal Athleisure wear Rock this trend

Sports inspired elements such as bands and straps are combined with crystals to create new luxury details and accessories. Who doesn’t want to be fashionable while they get fit?

Swarovski Crystal Stretch Bracelets

Swarovski Crystal Stretch Bracelets are a fun, easy-to-wear splash of sparkle to add to your athleisure wardrobe. They’re lightweight, and best of all – they s-t-r-e-t-c-hmaking them simple as-can-be to take on and off! They make perfect gifts because they fit most wrist sizes and because they stretch, you can wear them up higher on your arm if you like it to stay in place (while you get your workout on, or just chasing around those energetic kiddos). You can also wear them loose around your wrist and stack them with a variety of beautiful colors. Sooooo many great options with these Swarovski Crystal Bracelets – no wonder they’re so popular!
