Bridesmaid Gifts

My lovely bridesmaid gifts! It took me a long time to figure out the perfect gift to give my bridesmaids. I was certain that it would be something I made, but it took me awhile to figure out what exactly that would be. I decided to create 3 things: personalized martha stewart pocket-size photo albums from kodak (very cute, you have to check them out), letterpressed note cards, and their own unique gold necklace.


Honeymoon Time!

Have no fear, I am NOT blogging on my honeymoon! I decided to schedule a few posts now that wedding day is over to post while I'm away, laying on the beach :) I could not have asked for a better family, set of friends, or more perfect weather...I hope you enjoy a few wedding posts while I'm away!


Fall? I love it.

We've hit that time of year again (at least in NC) where the mornings are crisp, afternoons are sunny and warm, and evenings call for a light jacket...fall. I love it :) however, I don't love how anthropologie tempts me with such stylish fall ensembles...


Packing up the details!

We are packing up the details and sending them over to the reception site for decorating...finally! It seems like I have been working on wedding projects for months, oh wait, I have. It will be see nice to see everything come together :) Above are my send-off flags in a white ceramic tree stump.

Of course, cake flavor labels!

Holga Wedding Photos

I brought out the Holga for my brother's wedding in Vermont...and finally got the film developed. Oh how I love that little toy camera, if only I had brought more film...especially color!


Irene Suchocki

I'm such a sucker for fine art photography especially TTV. Found these beautiful photos on etsy by Irene Suchocki and had to share...so pretty right?


Where in the world..

have I been?? In lazy blog-land :-) I've been spending my days hanging with my dog, following the crazy politics, and doing a little house cleaning. All excuses aside..I did have a little fun photographing a bundle of flowers I picked up from the fresh market earlier this week.


Eye of the Storm

I'm here in Wilmington, NC for a wedding...yes, exactly where tropical storm Hanna is headed. Cross you fingers for a quick pass through! :-)
