One of my favorite things in the world is designing something that truly celebrates people. I love working with colors, various textures and elements to create a unique and cohesive mood... To be honest, I relish having a hand in everything. I create the invitation suite with coordinating details and event branding. It is important to me that everything flow together to create an aesthetic story that allows guests to celebrate with the couple, enjoying all of their fun quirks! I also do oodles of styling and love collaborating with local venders to bring about an absolutely smashing wedding, event or styled shoot. And then there are my two favorite things... cake and floral... I actually had a baking business on the side for a while and continue to do cakes for weddings, showers and parties here and there. I often find myself doing my own floral for weddings and events. And I just love to work with local bakeries and florists. There is nothing better than sitting down to a cake tasting, or walking into a flower shop and being stunned by the magnificent scent of peonies, dahlias and orchids. Maybe my very favorite is the social element... I even love being a part of family interactions, doing my best to serve as a peace-maker and stress-reducer. I pray for the families I work with, and have found that I have serious withdrawals after an event is over, deeply missing all of the quality time shared.
These things are the reasons I do what I do.... I cherish that this small little business enables me to be endlessly creative, and I love the relationships I build even more. While I have loads of photos that I have yet to post, here is a selective portfolio of some of my creative endeavors.
