Spring is…

basically here!  Although Seattle has bi-polar weather this time of year, the budding blooms outside don’t lie and local farmers are posting about their first harvests of flowers.  I’m ready to put the dark winter days behind me and head into the busy and blessed year I have ahead.  Here is a bright and cheery arrangement to kick off the weekend.  Photos by the lovely Kate Price Photography.

Summer bounty

Summer is great.  Flowers are plentiful enough that I can just run to the market without an order and pick up pretty accents to compliment the blooms and greens growing right outside my door.  Living in the city doesn’t allow for us to have a large garden, but we are slowly learning how to stock our yard with beautiful things.  I created this bouquet for fun with dahlias and garden roses from our garden.  I should probably say from “my husband’s garden” because, if I’m being honest, he does most of the maintenance work and all of the watering–unless you count throwing the empty bucket water outside after an event…then I can take some credit:)

Wedding Sparrow

I’ve recently come across the beautiful website Wedding Sparrow and have loved seeing all the gorgeous posts and inspiration they feature.  So I sure was excited when I saw our Autumn inspiration shoot pop-up today!  Check out the feature here!

Still planning on blogging more from this shoot soon–but in the meantime look through the photos and see the vendors on Wedding Sparrow’s site or check out the feature that was on Style Me Pretty as well!  Photo by O’Malley Photographers.

Stephanie and Jeff

I have been fortunate to work with some of the sweetest clients.  Every time I talked with Stephanie, I just felt happier about life.  She has a positive energy that is contagious.  She is the perfect combination of classy and bold–which is exactly what her wedding was like.  The WAC’s ballroom gave the wedding a timeless, elegant feel while the colorful flowers added some pop. The wedding was also full of sentimental pieces–her grandmother’s necklace wrapped on her bouquet, and she choose to get married at the same church her parents did.  I loved getting to play a role in such a thoughtful and fun event.  All images by the lovely and talented Kate Price Photography

snowy anniversary shoot

Last year my good friend and insanely talented photographer, Bryce Covey, asked if I could do a little styling for an anniversary shoot in the snow for the following day.  Although I didn’t have a lot of time to brainstorm/prepare, I never say no to Bryce because his images are always so incredible.  We trekked out over Snoqualmie pass and found a remote area where we could set up a little snowy picnic to surprise the couple.  It was simple–just some hot cocoa that they could quickly sip up for a little photoshoot intermission.  The shoot got featured on Style Me Pretty (see feature here) but the photos never made it to my blog.  This beautiful cold winter day reminded me of it so I thought I would share a few!
