Searching for Handmade Flair for Festivities?

Aloha!  My name is Stephanie Fontaine & I’m the person behind Clark & Diversey, a small local business.  My company features one-of-a-kind handmade flair for festivities, including head pieces, flower fascinators, dress adornments & accessories influenced by adventures abroad (my goal is to travel to as many countries as my age) and my swanky hometown of Chicago.  Many goodies are created from eco-friendly fabric, luxurious scrap material from bridal gowns & cruelty-free feathers.  Clark & Diversey creates handmade flair fit for any festivity.

Since tying the knot at our July 2010 destination wedding in the Dominican Republic, I’m partial to collaborating with brides-to-be on an original, custom creation for the big day.  We’re overjoyed to once again be a part of IndieWed – the most fabulously creative bridal event, period.  For the first 50 couples in line tomorrow, you’ll snag an amazing reusable, silkscreened swag bag filled to the brim with some spectacular goodies from many of the talented IndieWed vendors!  Here’s a sneak peek of Clark & Diversey’s swag treats:


Check out Clark & Diversey’s blog next week for the full reveal.  Looking forward to meeting y’all this weekend!

A destination wedding?! Hmm, OK!

Hi! I’m Tasha Mueller founder of Sweet Escapes Destination Wedding Planning.  I’m dedicated to help couples out there tap into their personal style and make their wedding about them & the celebration of their love.  Sweet Escapes is all about making your day (or week!) personal, intimate & memorable.  Yes, we focus on flowers, food & table linens, but our overall focus is about the “feel.”  Have you ever walked into a room and felt the ‘energy’ of the place & people?  That’s our point, I want your guests to walk away from your wedding full of love, laughter, and memories.

Just imagine taking your favorite people to an amazing location, experiencing some of the sights and adventures together, then sharing in your most special of days.  All of your family & friends will leave as one big ‘family’, always having your wedding to thank for the new friendships made.  Everyone becomes Facebook friends, invites each other out for dinner, and if we do our part, will want a reunion each year in the amazing place you got married.

I’m not saying Destination Weddings are better than a traditional one day hurrah, but think about it… what are you and your fiancee really wanting from your wedding?  If its quality time with each of your favorite people, a relaxed environment in a beautiful location, and a wedding week full of laughter and fond memories, you can’t beat a Destination Wedding.  Only a Destination Wedding can provide a true union of two families and two people in love.

 Hugs,  Tasha
