Happy Monday, friends! What a week! We're so happy to be back to our regular scheduled programming here on the Katie O Blog! First I want to give a shout out to everyone who came out for the 10th annual Dining Out for Life event at DP's! We had an amazing day and were so thankful for the generosity of the Purnomo family and everyone who supported the day!

So I have an AWESOME trends post for you today…we're talking ombre wedding trends today! I LOVE ombre! What is ombre? It's basically the gradual lightening of color–it's super popular with hair color, but can also be found in weddings! Let's check it out, shall we?
