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[...]

Annnnd I'm in love. Actually I'm in love with this couple, but I'm loving how their invites are turning out as well! They're perfect for their mountain-infused, vintage milkglass, peach and mint kind of wedding day, right? I can't wait to share the finals for you when I have them done next[...]
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[...]
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[...]
Am I biased? Yes. But I'm gonna go ahead and say I have one pretty darn cute babe. Sunday marks 3 months of life with him, and I can't remember what life was like before him (okay, I can.. it was filled with free time, Netflix marathons and SLEEP). Some milestones we're dealing with: Smiles and almost laughs. Fist sucking like it's his job. Following us with his eyes when we walk around [...]
Isn't vintage camera gear fun? I've got a small collection of cameras from the 20s and 30s, and I love looking through antique photographs and tintypes. I just ran across a whole tote full of tintypes. Tintypes are made from a thin sheet of iron with a photographic emulsion, and they were popular in the late 1800s - which is why I think they are so fun. You can't think of too many things that a[...]

This time of year I get stir crazy - I wanna get in the car and go somewhere. Luckily, I'm heading down to Florida in a handful of days, it'll be interesting doing a 20 hour road trip with a 3 month old, but I honestly wouldn't have it any other way. As I was looking through some old files, I found photos from Alt Summit in June. I had a the pleasure of speaking on a panel at Alt again, and af[...]
Well, you still make sense to me Your mess is mine I'm currently loving Mess is Mine from Vance Joy - I'm not 100% sure if it's a love song but I love how it's a testament to the fact that once you get married, you're in it together. Whatever you carry, your spouse now carries as well. I think it's kind of uplifting it think of it that way - you've got a partner who will walk this journey[...]
