Fall Wedding Inspiration

 

It was such a joy to help one of our nearest and dearest plan her wedding, which took place on a chilly day last November at Tuckahoe Plantation. Brittany has worked with me for more than five years as my lead production assistant, and as you might expect we’ve been planning her wedding for some time. (Maybe before she found the groom? shhh!) To see more of the details and get the full scoop, pop over to Martha Stewart Weddings!

A year ago today, we celebrated the wedding of our dear friends and clients. We’re celebrating again as their beautiful wedding is featured in the summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings! We were fortunate to work with a great group of talent, including Janie Medley and Katie Stoops, who both did so much to bring the bride’s vision to life and capture it beautifully. It’s always a treat to work with creative, fun-loving clients and talented wedding friends. xoxo

stitching memories — huger embroidery

Monday, January 26th, 2015

 

merriment events wedding There’s nothing I love more than meaningful gifts that tell stories and preserve memories. That’s why I love the work the work of Richmond’s own Huger Embroidery. Of course there’s the classic monogram, and Huger Embroidery does that very well, but their work capturing photographs, original artwork and drawings in thread and fabric is so incredibly fascinating and original! Above, our sweet clients’ engagement is captured on a pillow, while below, family pets, children’s drawings, invitations, photographs, and the like are stitched into heirlooms. I think I have Christmas gifts all figured out this year months ahead of schedule!

We’re just so over the moon about Martha Stewart Weddings’ announcement of the top wedding planners of 2014 (featured in the anniversary issue on newsstands this week); and we’re beyond thrilled to share the honor with friends Calder Clark, of Calder Clark Designs, and Maria & Kelly, of Ritzy Bee, as well as other luminaries in our industry whose work we’ve long admired. 2014 has been incredible. Merry Christmas, friends! xox
