Wedding Math

It’s that time of year again for us – investing lots of time and resources into booking brides for 2016 – 2017.  It’s always an exciting (and a little nerve-wrecking) time, because we always get to meet a lot of really lovely people while at the same time we are making the same case, over [...]

Bill & Steph {Aug 29 2015}

Bill and Stephanie were married on what was likely the foggiest day of August, but that certainly did not dampen their spirits, nor their vivacious wedding party, super fun guests, and made for some beautiful photography around Milwaukee.  They were a lovely, gracious, poised and wonderful couple who were so happy to be getting married [...]

Vintage Train Birthday

Well, for all of you who adore Pinterest, watch out!  I’m coming in full force with a very cool vintage train birthday party theme for the firstborn, who happens to have been born on 9/11.  We’ll be doing something casual – a little “hey classmates, show up at this park for two hours, run around [...]

Our new favorite videographer

Milwaukee doesn’t have a lot of wedding videographers.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe because it’s a time-intensive job that requires hours sitting with earphones on, watching, clipping, capturing, editing, coordinating, and referencing, and that’s all AFTER the hours spent actually filming the wedding day. Maybe because there truly is a bit of an intense passion, [...]

Finished Hello Kitty Birthday Invitations

Well, everything’s been printed up – I used a local printer for the 10 invitations and it cost me about $8 total.  Then, after cutting them out and getting hot pink envelopes (I used A7 size for the roughly 5×7 cards) from Amazon, I put on some gold stamping glue to decorate the little middle [...]

Hello Kitty Golden Birthday Party

Well, my daughter turns 3 in July (and there’s no time like the present to start planning) and she’s asked for a Hello Kitty theme.  Our efforts to keep her from buying into the merchandise just didn’t work, though I’m convinced if it was Hello Puppy she wouldn’t care (she loves kitties only).  Anyway, this [...]

Why It’s Been Few & Far Between

Sigh…you know us ladies…one of us is always having a baby!  Between all the Golden Chic girls, since starting Golden Chic in 2006, we’ve had 10 babies between us all.  Meet the latest addition, which is why I’ve been absentee over the past few months.  And Baby #11 (Cara’s!) should arrive in August sometime.  This [...]
