My dear friend & the talented photographer, Jaclyn Simpson, sent me these photos earlier in the week.  They are of a bouquet we made for her Mother, who was just wed her sweetheart in a conservatory.  It’s always an honor to create something for a family friend!

Congratulations to Marlene & Steve!!!

Last June I married the most incredible man at Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. It’s kind of mind boggling to think that it was almost a year ago, because I can remember every single moment so very clearly.  I can’t thank our friends and family enough for all their love and hard work.  After planning our wedding I have an entirely new love for my clients, I want them all to share the same joy that we did on June 1st.  Here are a few images from the wedding, our photographers Jaclyn Simpson and Jennifer Kathryn were absolutely amazing.

Alexa & Jordan

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Brunch weddings are so great.  Really just great.  Partly being a morning person, but also because who doesn’t love brunch?!  Mini pancakes, french toast kabobs and champagne with orange juice (Let’s be real, I always skip the OJ).  This brunch wedding just about two weeks ago could not be more perfect!  Inspired by Rifle Paper Co (One of our favorite lines that we carry in the boutique) Alexa & Jordan styled their gorgeous and romantic morning wedding with the sweetest details.  Teamed with the stylish Estera Events, photographed by the sweet and talented Cristina G Photography, and hosted at the Four Season Hotel, well now, that’s just perfection!

Congratulations to Alexa & Jordan!!!

Race for the finish line! A Derby Baby Shower!

Friday, April 4, 2014

Last weekend I co-hosted a little baby shower for some good friends at my house.  With the due date being May 3rd, one of the greatest days on earth (The Kentucky Derby), we had the perfect excuse to start planning for some bets – will it be a boy or a girl?!  I am so excited to meet this little one! (Ps, I bet a girl).  And thank you so much to Refind Joy for all the wonderful silver serving trays!!!

April ain’t no fool!

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

April is here, which means that wedding season is in full gear!  We’ve had a sprinkle of weddings and events throughout the past few months, but now it starts.  And we can’t be more excited, the flowers are going to be incredible.  To top it off, we’re already receiving shipments from some of our local growers – today is the 1st one with anemones and ranunculus!!  This is going to be a very exciting season.

Wreath making at West Elm in with Kinfolk

Friday, March 21, 2014

Although mentioned many times before, I adore my job.  It’s never the same, each week brings so many new challenges and experiences that are rewarding and inspiring.  These experiences teach me new concepts about design and at the end the day are simply fun.  When Amanda Jane Jones asked if I would be interested in teaching another class in collaboration with Kinfolk & West Elm, I was thrilled!  Spending an evening meeting so many talented people who have now become friends, working with fragrant foliages on a cold winter day, and watching everyone create organic pieces of art for their homes was wonderful.  Thank you to all our inspiring attendees, I am honored to have spent such a wonderful time getting to know you!!  Please enjoy these photos from Jaclyn Simpson Photography!
