Vintage Grace

Keera and I met at a wedding that we worked together earlier this year. Her video work blew me away and she is the sweetest person on the planet.  So imagine my delight when she contacted me to work with her on her wedding. Keera and Jacob were married in a small ceremony on her parents property. The intimate gathering of close family and friends on the back patio and field were the perfect touch for this couple’s love of simplicity. Keera’s favorite flower is the iris and getting to add these into her decor was something uniquely different and we were so excited with the results. A rich palette of gold, blue and neutrals decorated the day and as the evening set in and the air grew crisp her black leather jacket added a touch of flair. These adorable memories were captured by Christian Gideon Photography  A perfect ending to a perfect day. k32keerak15k2k6k34k20k21k7keerak24-1k25-1k40k13k8k18k28k33k3k10k27k14k35k22k26k38k39

Luxury Lodge

Dipped in fields of gold where the buffalo roam is the serene lodge of Buffalo Lodge Warm and embracing it was the perfect backdrop for Hannah and Tyler’s memorial wedding day. “The emotions flying around were hands down the strongest.. I’ve seen.
These two have a fairy tale romance, from knowing each other since they were little kids and Hannah always having a crush on her big brother’s best friend (writing MRS. Hahn} as little girls do. Who could have imagined her dreams coming true 15 years later.
The way Tyler looks at her is indescribable.
… I know that a love is more powerful than anything on this earth.”-Monphotography   Oh, how we love and adore this couple who both lost their fathers. A tweed jacket from each dad draped over a chair on each side of the aisle captured the missing but not forgotten loved ones. An Amazing and powerful day. Congrats to you both!

Misty Mansion

A little misty dew didn’t dampen this day. The Lovely Alena and Austin had the wedding of their dreams. Wanting a small getaway wedding was out of reach with a large extended family. So a compromise of a small intimate ceremony and reception with only imitate friends and family followed by a large ball with everyone invited.  Dancing way into the evening was the perfect blend mixed with down times of yard games, Antipasto bar and dessert bar of her’s and his. The personal ceremony made special with a ceremonial blanket made by the grooms mother and sprinkled with petals and herbs by mothers added a unique touch to this perfect day. Congrats to this beautiful couple.

Ruffles in Spring

This past year we had the privilege of working with wedding planner Madison Sanders Events and bringing to life this heart warming styled shoot at Longview Mansion. Not only was it so much fun to work with a great group of vendors but this dress was breathtakingly stunning and a work of art. We were so over joyed to find this spread in the current issue of EA Bride Magazine.

DIY Christmas Garland

This is the week of Christmas. We are prepping and preparing for a warm home full of family and friends. One way to bring in the scent of christmas is a fresh garland for your mantel. We demo one for you this week that is easy and quick to spruce up your home.

Gather these items to start:

  • Mix of Greens ( great to get at local stores or christmas tree farms)
  • Rope or twine
  • spool wire (gage 22″)
  • Wire cutters
  • Shears

Lets Begin

IMG_0534

1.  Start by cutting green pieces about 5 inches in length IMG_0535

2. Make piles of all your greens for easy access as you create

IMG_0538

3. Measure your mantel with rope or twine and make sure to account for draping on each side if you like.

IMG_0544

4. Cluster 3-4 stems together and tie off with wire.

IMG_0542

5. Add your twine in to keep your length and for extra security in your structure.

IMG_0543

6. Keep bundling 4-5 stems at a time and add to the exposed stems on the twine.

IMG_0665

7. When you have reached the end of your twine tie the last bundle in the opposite direction to cover the exposed stems and for a finished look

Drape across your mantle and enjoy..

Leftover greens make a great addition in a mercury glass vase of water.

 

Merry Christmas from our Family to yours.

People often ask me “what is the worst part of your job? “Most expect me to say “bridezillas, too many demanding/opinionated people or dealing with stressful mixed family dynamics. But in reality the worst part of my job is at the end of the event when we have to say goodbye to the family’s we have become apart of. The friendships and new relationships that have been made over the many months/years of planning. We love our clients and work hard to get to know them deep down. So if you ask me, Saying goodbye is the worst part of this job. Love you all!😘 . .

Over the years I have learned that no matter what you do there are some people that you can’t ever make happy no matter what mountains you move. So I had to learn to not let those few unhappy souls pull me down to their depth of misery. There are so many other grateful people who appreciate you. Let them fill you with inspiration and encouragement! . .
