If you saw me on any given day, there's a good chance I'm wearing a chambray shirt. I can't get enough. So creating a whole theme around the blue hues was a no brainer. A few weeks back I shared a Chambray wedding theme over on the My Wedding Favors blog, and I really love how it came together. Don't you love it? Lots of great details going on here. To see the rest of the po[...]
A Few Favorite Posts
Over the summer I had the pleasure of working on some fun invitations for a girl who lives in Denver but got engaged in Paris. She wanted invitations that honored the places that meant a lot to their relationship, so we worked together to come up with this vintage postcard inspired suite. Printed[...]
You guys - it's gonna be a busy few weeks around here. For months I've been helping a lovely bride Meghan with her Dubuque winery wedding, and wedding week is HERE! My dining room is full of rental props and my garage is full of hydrangeas and burlap wrapped mason jars. I'm so excited to see how[...]
I've been working with a lovely couple this year on their September wedding - everything from their stationery to their decor and day-of plan. Now that the date is slowly creeping closer, I thought I'd share some inspiration for their decor! I've been so wrapped up in it, I've even been having we[...]
Most brides I've worked with have opted out of having true seating arrangements at their weddings - whether they were cocktail parties or grab-a-seat-where-you-can type receptions, they didn't want to fuss with table numbers and putting people in specific places. While a seating chart can be hard[...]
I've been re-inspired by Pinterest lately, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite finds lately. Some are for my antique store, some are wedding related and some inspire me in every day living. That bedroom is to-die-for, right? Links: Ring Boxes | Typewriter & Vintage Stuff | Mini[...]

As a graphic designer, most of the wedding work I do is invitations and signage. And fonts are big part of making the whole invitation suite cohesive and well put together. Today I'm sharing with you the fonts that I cannot live without right now and the perfect way to use each one! My[...]
For my wedding, there were a few traditions I absolutely knew I wasn't going to follow - one of them being using a traditional ring bearer pillow. I wanted something that fit my theme a bit more, so I took a small vintage jewelry box, filled it with floral foam and moss and stuck my rings into it[...]
When it comes to your wedding day, it can be hard deciding what to splurge on (I wanted to splurge on everything!) and where you can save a few bucks. DIYing your boutonnieres can help you save! The fun thing about boutonnieres is that they don't have to all look the same - you [...]
One of the things I was looking forward to the most about Alt Summit was the Photo Styling class I had signed up for. I was a little bit bummed because I had packed my DSLR and brought it with me to the class, but forgot all my SD cards in the hotel room (which was a 20 minute cab ride away).[...]
In my recent soul searching and focusing on my new branding, I'm really trying to focus on who my absolutely ideal bride would be. I've been pinning images like crazy to my Ideal Bride Pinterest board and I'm noticing a trend - the perfect mix of indie, boho + rustic. Floral crowns included. I wa[...]
A few months back (who am I kidding, it's been close to a year now...) my lovely friend Ciera of Ciera Design reached out to me about contributing to an ebook she was putting together on how to successfully hold a series of local events. I was excited to contribute because I love planning and throwing parties, and I knew Ciera's vision for this thing was going to be great - she's an awesome[...]

You can't go wrong with green, and there are so many awesome ways to do up this theme. How fun are those invitations? And think of all the ways you could decorate. I know what I'm dreaming about tonight.. Botanical Wedding Ideas, Green Wedding Ideas, Greenery[...]
Friends, March was a blur. We were out of town the first half, and the second half I feel like I split my time between feeding my growing little guy and trying to catch up on work. So that's my excuse as to why I haven't shared last month's guest post on The Budget Savvy Bride! I chose 5 more really fun fonts if you're going the DIY route with your wedding invitations. And the best part is - th[...]

Happy Thursday Friends! Did you know I just added Vintage Rentals to my list of services? I have some fun collections that I'll now be renting out for weddings and events. For now I just have six categories - milk glass, burlap wrapped mason jars, brass cattle tags, globes, wooden boxes and brown bottles - but I have a lot more that I'm able to rent out depending on the time of year/what[...]
This is our fate, I'm yours. Friends, I'd really never been a fan of this song. It was way over played on the radio and then it was a co-worker's ring tone for a while back when I worked in the corporate world, so it was kind of ruined for me. Until I was listening to a playlist curated by Spotify and this was one of the songs. I was shoveling snow one night and instead of s[...]
