Friends, I'm so excited to be sharing today's wedding with you! I worked with Meghan most of last year on pulling together the look for her September wedding, and once the big day came I helped her with day-of coordination. Meghan was such a joy to work with - she trusted me with all of the de[...]
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).[...]
Although this week kicks off the first unofficial week of summer, springtime weddings are still underway. And springtime weddings in a barn with big florals = perfection. I shared a fun wedding theme over on the My Wedding Favors blog recently. There are so many farm fresh props you could use to pull this theme off - galvanized buckets and watering cans are perfect for centerpieces and displays[...]
And I’m alright, I think we’re good Yeah, I drink more than the doctors say I should I’ve been a little hard to reach, but my girl is at the beach And I’ll see her on the weekend I've loved Andrew McMahon through all of his musical endeavors, so this new chapter of Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness is no different, and his album is full of amazing songs. This is another one of those[...]
During college, I bartended at a restaurant that featured tons of flavor infused drinks. They were works of art, really - think strawberry and basil, sage and blueberry and elderflower and champagne. The flavors of the ingredients mixed together really made me appreciate different liqueurs and wines paired with fresh produce. One of my favorites to make - sangria. Today I'm sharing another [...]
Friends, I'm so excited to be sharing today's wedding with you! I worked with Meghan most of last year on pulling together the look for her September wedding, and once the big day came I helped her with day-of coordination. Meghan was such a joy to work with - she trusted me with all of the details of the day and we pulled together lots of rustic prettiness to make her day extra special. [...]
She'll be mine within a moment of time If only... Colony House is quickly becoming one of my favorite new alternative bands - their songs have a great beat and their first album has some fun songs. This Oh, What Love Music Monday song from them is a food one for your wedding playlist and is perfect for dancing to. Take a listen to Second Guessing Games here: Happy [...]
I never truly understood how fleeting time was until I became a mom. Some days seem like they creep along slowly, while others fly by and I wonder what I accomplished. Then all of the sudden it's Friday and I can't remember where the days went. Although my to-do list is a mile long with no end in sight, I'm trying to take time out of my day to appreciate the little things, namely Ho[...]

This post is so long overdue that it's almost embarrassing! I've been meaning to share my business card redesign since last June when I went to Alt Summit, I had a lot of fun getting the design and details figured out on these. I knew I wanted to incorporate some small takeaway - either a feather or arrow of some sort or a dreamcatcher. After tons of searching, I found a shop on Etsy tha[...]
I will sing as your canary bird Take my soul and bury it in the earth You really can't go wrong with a song from The Head and the Heart.

Listen to it here: Fun, right? They're definit[...]
