In the Press: Swiss Family Robinson Styled Shoot

In the Press:  Swiss Family Robinson Styled Shoot



Hello, inspiration!  This styled shoot was featured recently on Every Last Detail and I am so excited to share the images of these beauties with you here as well .... the creativity by all involved is absolutely awe-inspiring, and there were so many beautiful details weaved into every piece.  I tried hard to choose a favorite, but between the protea flowers or the stunning gown, the carefully hand-deckled edging included on the invitation or the delicate details incorporated into the cake design, I love every single detail.

Wedding Tips: A Timeline for Custom Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations

Wedding Tips:  A Timeline for Custom Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations


I love designing bespoke wedding collections, and want to be as helpful as possible when it comes to planning the paper side of the details for your wedding day. A lot of times, brides contact me when it is only a few weeks prior to their wedding day, and we don’t have enough time to design the collection they had in mind.  I am hoping this post today is helpful in helping you to realize that sooner rather than later is a good thing when it comes to paper!

Bespoke Invitation Design:  Victoria and Nathan's Navy and Burgundy Suite



Goodness, do I have a beauty of a bespoke wedding invitation design to share with you today.  Beautifully rich colors and a custom monogram incorporating the same florals as were in the bride's wedding bouquet, this one was one of my favorite custom wedding invitation designs from the winter of 2016.

What a beautiful color palette to start off the year with for Bespoke Wedding Design!  There is something so elegant and beautiful about blush and navy together, and then when you add in the slate and champagne, goodness it's pretty.

Bespoke Wedding Invitations:  Rachel and Kent's Persimmon + Slate Letterpress Suite

This weekend, Rachel and Kent celebrated their wedding to begin their married life together!  I was so excited for their day, even though we have never actually met in person.  Rachel is an amazing bride who lives in Texas, and I worked with both her and her mom "long distance" for the last six months to create a beautiful bespoke letterpress wedding collection.  I love how it all turned out and am stoked to share all of the lovely details with you today.

Word of the Year for 2017: Nurture

Word of the Year for 2017:  Nurture

I think it is always so interesting to see and read about how people choose a word that represents what they hope the year will encompass.  We are a few weeks into 2017 and I thought today would be the perfect day for sharing my reasoning behind choosing this one for the year.  I've already noticed a difference in my general day to day and what I pay more attention to, so I am excited to have an entire year devoted to this, both personally and in my business.

Last year was a really big transitional year - from moving away from wedding planning (see more on that post here) to creating loved custom wedding invitation collections for so many amazing couples and also building my shop into what it is now (let alone raising two kids at home with me while all of this was happening too), it was filled with a lot of hectic, a lot of busy, and a lot of exhaustion, honestly.  Even though my business turns seven this year (which is my lucky number, so it's got to be a good year!) in a lot of ways because of making the change from primarily wedding planning to wedding invitations + day-of items, there were a lot of new things I had to learn last year.  Every day I worked on new ideas, new systems within the business and different details that I hadn't before. 

Real Wedding: Sami and Drew's Pensacola Bohemian Beach Wedding

Real Wedding:  Sami and Drew's Pensacola Bohemian Beach Wedding

Hi loves!  Today I am thrilled to share details from this beautiful bohemian beach inspired wedding with you.   You may recognize Sami and Drew from the previous post on their alternative guestbook Love Notes Wall that they incorporated into their wedding, but today I am sharing a bit more about their wedding, including their color palette as it is still such a beautiful combination together for so many beach weddings, especially here in Pensacola at Margaritaville and Landshark Landing!  For Sami and Drew, I was both their wedding planner and designed all of the paper details, and we worked amazing as a team together.  Our meetings were always filled with laughter and I think that so much of it has to do with the love that they have for each other, that they knew that at the end of the day, the most important part was that they got to marry each other and vow to spend the rest of their lives together.  Because truly, that is all that matters.

In the Press: Romantic Woodlands Styled Shoot

In the Press:  Romantic Woodlands Styled Shoot

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I had such an amazing weekend participating at the Bridal Show at the Pensacola Bay Center.  The day before, I stopped by Target to pick up a copy of Weddingstar Magazine because a styled shoot that I was a part of last spring was published in it!!  To say that I was excited was an understatement.  There is something about seeing your work in print form that is absolutely exhilarating.  They are sold at Target, Walgreens, and Barnes and Noble if you would like to pick up a copy of the newest edition!

One thing that I plan to do more of this year is share color palettes from real weddings and current designs I am working on for bespoke collections, so that it can help you to plan your wedding as well! The majority of palettes that I work with are not traditional - they have unique color combinations or elements that aren't expected, so I am really excited about this addition to the blog.
