Megan and Kevin

I was so excited to be a part of this GORGEOUS wedding. Megan was a dream bride for me- allowing me tons of creative freedom, and she was so easy and fun to work with. She had a rustic, vintage wedding theme, and I knew immediately that we must use vintage fabrics as our inspiration. The antique windows and doors we found were perfect for diplaying her escort cards. It was a fun and new experience incorporating the fabrics into some of these designs. I'm still waiting on more pictures, but here are some for now... taken by the great Meg Perotti.

Starry Night

I was recently invited to be a part of a theme inspired photoshoot! Our inspiration for this wedding was the Van Gogh painting Starry Night. I was asked to do the paper designs with this inspiration in mind. I was immediately inspired by the swirled designs in the painting, and decided it was time to try something I've been wanting to do for a long time... paper quilling! It was so much fun creating these 3 dimensional swirls on the paper! I loved how they turned out. I also used the names of Van Gogh's family and close friends (including the Dr. who worked on his ear) in the place cards. And I used a French inspired menu. It was so fun to see how it all came together! And to top it all off... Junebug Weddings chose to feature and publish our work in their wedding blog. Check it out! It was a pleasure to work with so many talented people!

Fogarty Winery Showcase

I had the privelege of participating in the Thomas Fogarty Winery preferred vendor showcase last week! Thanks to Janae Shield's Photography I have some beautiful pictures to share! The gorgeous florals are by Amy Burke Designs, and rentals by Hartmann Studios. Other great vendors included Janece Shelloe of Every Elegant Detail, and Beth Anne Goldberg of Studio Cake. I had so much fun working with the other vendors, and creating paper designs that showed several different styles and price ranges. One our our goals was to create 3 different table designs that would give ideas for every budget.

Table 3 was our standard table- from florals, to rentals, to paper designs... this table was priced affordably for almost any bride!


Table 2 was contemporary and modern with clean lines. The pricing was a bit higher with some really unique touches! This table was fun for all of us!

Table 1 was the crème de la crème of table designs! This table was the highest priced table, but with the gorgeous linens and stunning floral, it was a site to behold...
