Looking up the double staircase to see the salvaged antique stained glass windows get a new chance at life gives us life ✨
The sunlight reflecting through the windows and bouncing off of our skim coated plaster walls from @masterofplasterusa is hands down our favorite restoration investment. We are finally taking the time to finish meticulously repairing the plaster cornice with a tiny 1” trowel in the next few weeks. It takes about an hour per foot so you can only imagine why it’s taken as long as it has to complete this project. Little by little is the perfect proper speed to get things right on a 107 year old preservation project💪🏼

Blushing over this beautiful luncheon for @lifeatjtc with stunning floral arrangements by @southernposies & incredible food by @itsjennieweller 💕 Working with fabulous vendors for your special events really can make or break your experience & we couldn’t speak higher of these two women-owned companies. If you are looking for florals and/or food, you have to inquire with both. Also, if you are in need of one-of-a-kind linens, @bbjlinen is where it’s at!

We had the pleasure of having @blakeypunch photograph the house recently and we absolutely adore how he captured our sapphire suite 🦋! Notice the painting above the mantle? Thanks to the incredible Pelzer-Webber Family, we have on loan a painting of the original owner and builder, Arthur Pelzer, watching over us and sharing in the revival of his prized home. Arthur and Eva Pelzer began construction plans on the house in 1909 with building starting in 1913 and finishing in 1915. Prior to building 1616, they first built three other properties on South Perry street for their three daughters in preparation for moving into 1616 when it was completed. My husband, Spencer, and I live in the house directly next door (1640) that Mr. & Mrs. Pelzer lived in when they were building 1616. 107 years later we are doing the same and feel so grateful to the Pelzer/Webber family for sharing in their history with us and to the Simmons family (second family) for sharing in their history with the house and welcoming us fully as well. Forever grateful these properties chose us to be their caretakers and that we get to share them with the community generations later 💙

Hanging the squad up in the emerald suite & finalizing the art details upstairs this week feels so good. When designing the dressing suites upstairs, we really wanted each room to be a completely different and unique experience from each other as well as any room you’ve ever been in before. Little by little it’s coming together & we cannot wait for future guests to enjoy these rooms that have been brought back to life 107 years later 🤗! Shout out to @masterofplasterusa for their incredible Venetian Plaster in “Green Smoke” that we absolutely adore. Hands down best investment was their historic, lime-plaster products 💚

Who says Christmas trees are just for Christmas!? Absolutely fawning over @itsaaron.g design idea of filling the ballroom with Christmas trees sourced from the neighborhood streets to be twice loved for this creative winter inspired photoshoot. Having the ability to collaborate with other creative business owners to take an idea out of your head and turn it into reality is what we love most about what we do, and these are some of the people we love to do it with most⬇️.

The house lit up at night & the white ballroom changing colors into ANY color you want was the main reason we kept the whole room white. Did you know we have color changing up lighting in-house? Yep we do and can’t wait to see all the fun colors our clients go with. We’ve also been feeling those Halloween spooky vibes that are screaming at me to light the whole house red for the night! Want do you think? Should we do a haunted house virtual tour for y’all? 🧟‍♂️ stay tuned 👻💀☠️

The art of preservation. 🪄 AFTER&BEFORE
The transformation of the entry foyer is certainly one of our favorites and after meticulously hand painting all of the decorative plaster on scaffolding around this room for the last year, it’s safe to say we are very excited it’s close to the finish line now!
The light reflections off the @masterofplasterusa ceiling & walls from the chandelier & windows are like none we have seen before! Hands down the best decision we made was to skim-coat and restore our historic lime plaster!
The original chandelier in the foyer has been moved upstairs to the Burgundy Landing as the size fits that space so much better. Thankfully we sourced this antique, Edwardian Swarovski Crystal Chandelier on FBmarket that works perfectly.
The Webber/Pelzer family was gracious enough to share some original family photos with us and we have this photo of the foyer from about the 60s-70s era and you can see not much has changed. We look forward to hosting many more celebrations over the next decade!

We had the absolute best time at the Barrel of Blues on Wednesday night, a fundraising event benefitting Child Protect, Childrens Advocacy Center. Everything was so beautifully decorated, thoughtfully planned out, and loyal to the theme!! We had such a fun time creating this Bourbon inspired menu, with a Bourbon Bacon station and even bourbon related desserts! We are always so honored to be a part of the work and efforts of everyone at Child Protect. Also want to say a special shout out to the vendors who created such a beautiful atmosphere for the night. Thank you to The 1616 House for the venue and Aaron G for the gorgeous florals!

Now that the Striplin wedding has passed I can finally share some of my absolute favorites from Ashley's stellar bridal session at the magical The 1616 House!!
Although The 1616 House isn't technically open yet, it's already becoming a huge part of the community and finding ways to give back to local students in Montgomery. Needing a parking lot for when it's ready to host events and weddings, owner Cristina Cadden teamed up with Sidney Lanier High School. The Poets are in dire need of a renovated student parking lot. The 1616 House is fronting quite a bit of funds but is also reaching out to local business owners to help with donations! So far, it's been a great response. And The 1616 House won't be just a wedding venue; Cadden also plans to bring arts workshops to the area and into the schools. Check out her story now!
