Sun-kissed California Wedding

Nothing signifies the closing of summer to us inlanders more than a sun-kissed California wedding.  The neutral palette against the greens is one of my favorites, all beautifully captured by Emily Susan Photography.

A Romantic Naturalist Wedding Inspiration

This has been the most unusual summer here.  While there  have been a string of hot, hot days, most of the mornings have been chilly.  As we head into the early moments of fall, the weather is amazing.  Perfect for me.  We’ve had more rain storms than normal (my thank you’s being shouted to the heavens) which have left me feeling more inspired than ever.  Today’s board is a toast to an inspiring week and a hope that we all savor the fleeting moments around us.

Forest Bridal Shoot // Sneak Peek

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of working with Evelyn Eslava Photography and Nicole of Soil and Stem on a styling project.  Maybe you remember this board that I designed for a post over on the lovely Coco and Mingo blog?  Evelyn loved the board and asked me if I’d style a shoot based on that board.  Of course, I couldn’t resist!  And, I can’t resist sharing a peek at the team’s fabulous work!  (More to come in September!)

New! Pink Coneflower Invitation Suite

POSTED IN: Stationery | One Comment

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been working on lots of new lines.  I’m branching out into stationery design and working on some art prints.  This is one of my new designs for my wedding invitation line.  I have 3 new lines coming out this fall, which is exciting for me, since most of my current clients are custom projects.  I’ve really been enjoying the process on these pieces.

Oddly enough, coneflowers have not been a flower that I found particularly beautiful; I really kind of disliked them.  We had an abundance of them in our yard in St. Louis.  When we moved, I missed them because they reminded me of home, but not because of any love of the bloom.  Two summers ago, I found a pile of seeds in a cup in my garage and decided to plant them.  I had no idea what they were…could have easily been beans…and thought the anticipation and surprise in the spring could be fun.

Wouldn’t you know that the first year brought stems and leaves, but no blooms.  I figured I’d give the plant one more year before I replaced it.  As luck would have it, the sparse stems turned into a full bush of coneflowers this year.  I found myself smiling whenever I walked past them and had to laugh a bit at the irony.  Those little flowers have now become my friends and I thought a wedding suite in honor of them was fitting.  After all, I know a number of people who, when they first met, had a bit of distaste for each other.  Over time, the distaste turned into a crazy fondness that turned into marriage, children and a cherished life together.

This suite will be up in the shop in September.  If you would like to orders yours before then, just email me! (email hidden; JavaScript is required)
