McGill Rose Garden

This styled wedding shoot was a dreamy shoot to be a part of!

Jessica with Lallier Event Design dreamed this gorgeousness up and allowed me to have freedom with the stationery (YAY!!).  The shoot took place at McGill Rose Garden and the garden itself was the main inspiration from where the whole Stationery look came from.  Jessica had a great vision as to what elements she wanted to incorporate and from there, this is what was dreamed up!

I am very happy to say that I work with some of the sweetest brides. Last year was no exception working with Sara and her hubby, Chris! Check out these photos from her wedding at BELFAIR PLANTATION in Bluffton, South Carolina.

ALSO … check out the last photo in the group here – I LOVE when my clients come back for a Christmas Card.  Makes my heart so happy!

Happy One Year Anniversary Sara and Chris!!

christmas in july

I will have to admit – this is one of the top 5 weddings I have had the pleasure of working on with a bride.  However this one is more special to me because it was the wedding of my sweet cousin, Kayla who’s more like a sister than a cousin to me. She made a simply stunning bride and her groom was pretty handsome that day as well.

We share a special bond in our family . . . and some of you know how close I am to my family – so this was a huge celebration for our family to all be together in the same place for a huge party!   Kayla pulled her winter dream wedding together with the help of John Gandy Events of Tallahassee, Florida.

This weekend wedding took place at a gorgeous north Florida plantation and my favorite part of the venue was everyone stayed, celebrated and partied late into the night all on the same property!

I AM GOING TO START OUT WITH MY FAVORITE PHOTO FROM THE WEDDING – Kayla’s Something Blue (and Something Old). My mom and I helped my Grandmother pick out an old blue tie that my Grandfather was notorious for wearing . . . and it still smells like him 13 years later. My sweet Aunt Jan (who’s a talented seamstress) cut out a heart shape from the tie and stitched it in Kayla’s wedding dress.  Our Grandfather was an amazing man and this was a PERFECT way to incorporate him into her big day . . . . insert the tears!

such a delight

Delight is a community of young ladies ages 14-20 who are passionate in an area of the creative arts! Whether it is photography, graphic design, music, culinary arts, theater, fashion or dance, the desire is to inspire young women in the creative arts to pursue their God-given talents while also helping them define what it means to be strive to be a Proverbs 31 woman. Delight about being real, raw and relevant: whatever you are facing, others have been there too. At Delight, you will find a community filled with stories of grace, redemption and mercy. Also, you’ll find inspiration to help you grow not only in your talent, but also in your faith!

I learned about Delight this past year at Pursuit Community (formerly Pursuit 31) in Rome, Georgia and of course, I just loved this idea! Founder Kristin Wall (also known to the Delight girls as “Momma Wall”) and has a huge heart for creative girls. I definitely wish there was something like this around when I was a teenager!

Photographer Jessica Lauren approached me about creating a stationery suite for these sweet girls to photograph at their retreat in Washington this past spring and I was so excited to be a tiny part of helping these creatives build a portfolio and have the opportunity to do something they might have never been a part of . . . A STYLED SHOOT!

So take a look at these beautiful images . . . and just be amazed at what these young girls can do!
