Thanks so much to RVA News and my friend, Susan Howson, for the lovely interview this week! Hop on over to hear what I have to say and the wise words of other talented Richmond wedding friends.
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
Thrilled to see Megan and Will’s wedding in the current issue of Flower Magazine. We adore this couple and couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with us. To see more, pick up the current issue of Flower or click over to the online version of the story here.
In addition to styling Janie Medley’s lovely feature in the latest Southern Weddings Magazine, the SW girls were kind enough to ask me to contribute to a story called “35 tips for a wedding full of southern hospitality.” Naturally, I wrote about something that’s near and dear to my heart — timing. No matter how beautiful the details, how sumptuous the linens, how striking the flowers, a thoughtfully crafted event day agenda is the foundation of your event; anticipating how your guests will experience each moment of your wedding day and crafting an experience with them in mind is one of the most generous expressions of hospitality!
It was such a pleasure to work on this story last spring with Patricia Lyons and Janie Medley for Southern Weddings Magazine’s current issue. We were tasked with bringing the personality and charm of six southern states to life in bouquets. For instance, while Tennessee was a bit wild and folk-inspired, in homage to its country music roots, Florida centered on warm, citrus tropical inspired elements. Pick up the latest issue to see the full story!
