Nothing holds the nostalgia of my younger years quite like the stories of Anne of Green Gables.  In so many ways my best friend Amy and I grew up with and through the tales of Lucy Maude Montgomery. {As Anne, the heroine, traversed her days and years of life from a wistful and bright red-headed orphan to elegant seasons of Gibson Girl style and love affairs galore, Anne was our muse for life, love and wisdom.} Amy and I have been fast friends since the sixth grade.  We, much like the fictional friends Anne and Diana are the epitome of kindred spirits.  We’ve been together through […]

I’ve decided to take a little break this week from my blogging hiatus and for one very good reason.  My Best Friend’s Wedding made the pages of one of my favorites, Bridal Guide Magazine.  I was honored enough that they featured her Parisian Wedding Shower last year but when they picked up her wedding as a follow up story, I could hardly believe my luck!  Amy’s wedding was a joyous time not only for the Bride and her Groom but also for two best friends who live far from eachother and have been dreaming of this wedding since mine came […]

Jillian McGrath Photography It is hard to believe our crazy, creative Momental Girl Jess is getting hitched in just 3 days!  The ring was on her finger in December and now only a few short months later, she and Brad have assembled the vision and verve to pull off an epic affair.  I don’t throw around the word epic much, I think it is far too overused.   However epic here is appropriate because these two have stuck to their vision, stayed true to themselves and crafted a smashing event on a dime.  They paid attention to whats most important and […]

Jess is a DIY girl at heart.  From lace bunting to quirky signage built by the groom, this wedding will be full of hand crafted moments.  FiftyFlowers.com offered to help out a bit with Jess’s blooms as have I!  I tried my hand at floral design back in 2010 to celebrate the hubby and my 10 year renewal.  Mom and I plucked and pruned over 500 stems and now consider ourselves accomplished novices of the art.  So two Thursday’s from now, I will be knee deep in flowers, prepping all the flora for this Momental Girl’s Wedding! I use the […]

Last week was peppered with the painting of two very floral bouquets.  Both of our couples adored a blushy-pink color palette and a mix of classic blooms like Ranunculus, Peach Amaryllis and Garden Roses.  First up was Kaitlin’s bouquet…with the lovely Pieris added to the mix. The original was quite vibrant so when it came time for Kaitlin’s invitation sample I toned down the palette a bit with a more muted over-painting in shades of peach, blush and sage greens…  My Trellis Pattern with Envelopments was added to give a subtle and sophisticated shimmer and texture to the layering.
