Garden party vibes.

I’m noticing a trend with my clients and weddings. Al fresco dining, luxe florals, and intimate celebrations with friends.

What’s not to love.

30 days. That’s how long we had to plan out Kate + Jason’s intimate wedding at Goodstone Inn & Restaurant

Boy boy, oh boy it was planned to perfection. Thanks to a killer team, a whirlwind month transformed into a total dream.

Some magic is made from necessity.

I love seeing my fave venues transform under today’s pressures. I hope some of the changes stick well after covid is a thing of the past.

What are your wins this week?

// So many updates, so little time. I’ve had three elopement inquires come in the last week for August! And because elopements have always been my jam, I’m over here happy dancing.

I just had my first call with @courtneynullcreative about something big that’s in the works!

I’m teaming up with @springvalefloral, @theballengerfarm + @kimbranaganphoto for a super dreamy giveaway.

AND you can now find some of my pottery for sale at @wld_wst. //

Weddings don’t have to be big.⠀
They don’t have to be fussy.⠀
They just have to be right for you.⠀

One good thing to come from Covid-19, is that we are able to bring weddings back to where they should be- intimate celebrations of the couple with their loved ones.⠀

Now doesn’t that sound perfect.⠀

Nine years. Nine.

Marriage is hard, folks, but this guy makes it easy. I’m pretty lucky because I married my best friend and partner in life, parenthood and every other adventure under the sun.

Here’s to our journey together, Billy Skipper Hughes.

Just posted about this cutie over on my other account @color.clay.co!

Because most of my weddings have been rescheduled, I’ve been spending most of my time working on things that make me joyful and fill my cup.

I can’t wait to get back to weddings, but for now you can follow along me on the flip side for more regular updates, hilarious mishaps and super cuties like this one. Come see meee!

Heya friends, it’s been a long time. Let me explain.

I’m having more and more trouble finding the motivation to post on here, simply because I’m just so sad about the wedding industry right now.

I’m sad that almost all of my clients have rescheduled to next year, sad they their day has a cloud of fear hovering above it.

I see so many posts of pretty wedding images, and while hopeful that we can get back to that sooner rather than later, but for now, I’ll be filling my cup with things that bring me joy.

I can’t wait to celebrate all of my awesome couples soon.

Things that bring me joy. ⠀

It’s hard to find joy in things right now. I feel like we are all so focused on finding normalcy and worrying about what our future might look like, that we aren’t loving on all of the good things.⠀

These two monsters bring me so much happiness and companionship.⠀

Tell me one thing that has brought you joy this week.

This really is a time of reflection, isn’t it? Weeks upon weeks of staying home wasn’t exactly what I had planned. My emotions have been a mix of panic, disappointment, sadness, happiness and peace; such a wide variety. ⠀

Normally I’d be gearing up for all of my spring weddings, but now, they have been pushed to the fall or even further out. Instead, I’ve been given time to reflect on my life and my business. While this pandemic is anything but a gift, being able to reflect and take things in stride certainly is. ⠀

Have you used this time to reflect on things? Maybe map out some goals, or write down things you are thankful for. Let’s use this time wisely, friends.⠀

Two years ago this cutie almost didn’t make it. ⠀

He suffered a large pediatric stroke at birth, and we had no idea what this meant for us or for him. It took the NICU specialists 10 days to figure out what had happened, and the next year to get a real understanding of what our lives would be.⠀

But today he is THRIVING and even though we celebrate him being with us every single day, today is extra special. ⠀

Happy birthday, to our little Finn!

Yesterday, I was in the backyard chasing after my wild toddler and I realized that we still have so much to be grateful for.⠀

Even in all the chaos and uncertainty of the future. ⠀

The air was warm and breezy, there were so many birds out singing and spring was in the air. I could hear neighboring kids laughing as they were exploring the woods behind our houses and could see my peonies peaking up out of the dirt. We even turned the outdoor water supply back on finally and Finn played with the hose and ran his hands under the water and giggled.⠀

Just a glimmer of hope and reminder to enjoy the little things whenever we get the chance, friends.⠀

I’m so torn you guys. ⠀

Working from home is something I do regularly, and I feel like I *should* be super productive. I have so many incredibly fun weddings in the pipeline, but sh*t is WILD right now. ⠀

I’m sick to my stomach about all of the couples that are having to reschedule, or having find new venues or vendors. Planning a wedding is stressful enough. ⠀

I have decided to offer completely FREE initial consultations to non-clients to field their concerns and be a shoulder to lean on during this time of chaos. This must be so scary and overwhelming for them, I just can’t imagine going through it alone.

And I just got the dreaded email saying that my pottery classes have been suspended indefinitely until Covid-19 is somewhat contained.⠀

It’s hard, you guys.⠀

It’s hard to have school + daycare cancel, its hard to put your daily routines on hold, it’s hard to have stores look like ghost towns when you really need your regular groceries, and yet somehow still it’s harder to make the responsible decisions necessary to keep our communities safe. ⠀

I’d suggest we have have a snuggle party filled with booze and classic movies to adjust to the chaos, but that’s not possible, so I’ll be on your couch, netflixing in spirit. ⠀

Internet hugs, friends!

A little pre-ceremony beverage? ALWAYS.

But what makes a ceremony welcome station even better? A light snack keeps your guests happy and can easily elevate their experience. ⠀

A total win win.⠀

Okay I’m just going to say what everyone is thinking.⠀

Everyday should be International Women’s Day. Our importance and impact should be celebrated more than a few “holidays” a year. ⠀

Don’t get me wrong, yesterday’s wave of social media tagging and shoutouts were awesome, but we should be raising each other up every single day. ⠀

Don’t you agree? Let’s start acting like it! ⠀

Okay, let’s shake it up.⠀

I’m going to give you all two VERY randomly obscure facts about me. Ready? ⠀

ONE. ⠀
I really like gummy bears, but think jellybeans and Jello and are absolute garbage. I have no idea why. ⠀

TWO.⠀
My closet is a rainbow, organized by color. It brings me joy every time I’m in there, BUT I’m not in there enough, because I’m a habitual “laundry chair” user.⠀

What are two interesting facts about yourself that make you, “you”? ⠀

I’m so grateful for you guys, really. We are so lucky to be as connected as we are, and I think we all take it for granted. ⠀

I know we all bitch and moan about being dependent on social media, but I’d really miss you if the internet disappeared tomorrow.⠀

So let’s go get lunch, drinks or just party in person, okay? ⠀

Help me wish THE HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to my main squeeze of the last 14 years. What can I say? Time flies when you’re in love with your best friend. (Gross, I know- but you’ll just have to get over it.)⠀

Can you believe that he’s 35? We met when he was 21, got married when he was 26 and welcomed our son when he was 33. It’s been a really good 14 years. ⠀

Cheers to the next chapter, Billy Skipper Hughes. Love, love, love.⠀

It’s “No-Work Wednesday” for me, which means I’m off to my weekly pottery class where I make things that are nowhere close to this pretty 😂⠀

But I’m SO obsessed with Something Vintage’s new stoneware line, I wanted to share something pretty with you guys! ⠀

They even debuted a new color today- go check their beauties out! ⠀

There’s just something about a fireplace that I love so much, and I know I can’t be the only one.⠀

Maybe it’s the ability to dress it up or dress it down, or maybe I love them so much because they remind me of being cozy. ⠀

Whatever the reason, I’m here for it. ⠀

Unapologetically me.⠀

I had a transformative conversation with my husband last week. I told him that I was tired of being the “me” that I thought people wanted me to be, and that I was ready to go out and design whatever I wanted, just for the hell of it. ⠀

I have so many “weird” designs laid out in my mind, and from here on out I’m just going to run with them. I’m saying goodbye to the rules and trends of this industry, and saying hello to more out-of-the-box thinking. ⠀

Who wants to get wild with me?!⠀

Running out of the office MOOD. ⠀

My “No Work Wednesday’s” have helped me remember to slow myself down and make time for things outside of work. ⠀

Last week, I looked at my calendar and sighed in overwhelm. But knowing that I have one day that I can count on to be all about me, well that’s pretty awesome. ⠀

No emails, no calls. Just a weekly pottery class to get my hands dirty followed up by friends and family time. ⠀

Have you slowed down lately? Maybe it’s time. ⠀

This moment right here. ⠀

It’s when wedding guests are enjoying their cocktails and the final touches are being made. ⠀

It’s just a moment of total joy and admiration- looking at how everything has come together and is somehow way better than what was ever on paper. ⠀

These are the moments that remind me that I am right where I’m meant to be. We should celebrate them more.⠀
