For me, it’s the details that make memories so vivid. My memory of the toast given at our wedding would not be the same if I were seated in a folding chair.
We were all gathered around rustic wine barrels, now when I see wine barrels, I think of that moment. Whether your style is vintage, rustic, shabby chic, Tuscan vineyard or bohemian beach – it will be the details that bring you back to those memories in an instant.
And let’s not forget how much more amazing the photos are! Adding vintage settees or rustic farm tables or church pews are the details that will make a world of difference.

The name Toast was the result of an eight-hour car ride between Shaun and I on our drive home from a San Francisco treasure-hunting mission.
“He said, how about “Toast”? You love it when people give toasts, you love to eat toast, you like those almonds…I laughed, but the name stuck.
And, now it has a special memory associated with it – which is just the way I like it.
