Winding down.

With my 2015 wedding season winding down, (6 more to go!) I'm starting to do a little reflecting on the past year, and making plans for next. Frequently, I find myself in disbelief that I have been able to work with such incredible clients, and have had the opportunity to work with so many of my favorite friends/fellow wedding vendors frequently.  I am a really lucky woman Theresa and Seth were married on October 10th in Richmond, Virginia.

Seasonal Bouquet Inspiration

I've been quite inspired by The Seasonal Bouquet Project for the past year, which encouraged and showcased using only seasonal findings in bouquets and arrangements. I just adore the idea of letting the colors and vibes of a certain season (or month!) inspire to create. My goal is to create a bouquet (or arrangement!) every month for a year. This will be a very loose project- my only requirements for this will be that 1) all bouquets will be inspired by the colors and feelings that I feel from each month 2) each bouquet will feature in-season and/or foraged local components.

I started with October, and my dear friend Nikki Santerre Photography captured this bouquet for me on film. Once we receive the photos back, you'll be the first (well, third ;)) to know!  I used these beauties as a part of the project. I'm in love.

 

Something Scary

This week, I will be at the incredible Inn at Serenbe for the Joy Thigpen Creative Direction + Styling workshop. I am so excited to take this time to learn from other badass women creative business owners. It's thrilling to be able to invest myself and this time into my business. Now that I've figured out where the heart of my business is, it's time to work on refining and honing in on that. I want to learn what my business means to me, and how to turn that into my career. While I'm incredible excited, I'm also terrified. That's normal, right? I'm not terrified of meeting new people, of traveling, or of new places. I'm pretty nervous about all of the internal stuff- the hard questions, the deep thinking, verbalizing my dreams. They don't call them growing pains for nothing, though, do they?

I'll be back on Friday, with very little to no internet access while I'm there. I've got lots of fun stuff going on behind the scenes right now, and I can't wait to share them with you! The bouquet below is something I made this weekend for one very special bride.  See you Friday!
