It is with great excitement that we are introducing our long-awaited collaboration with the masterful artists from Paloma’s Nest, Caroline and José Vásquez. Debuting this week at  Engage!14 -a luxury wedding industry symposium-with the sample tiny text bowls shown above, our collaboration will be titled Momental for Paloma’s Nest: Timeless Heirlooms…Painted! The collection will include three styles of the iconic Ring Bearer Bowl, each with a different phrase or text; each phrase will feature one of our meticulously hand painted designs- floral, wash, or pattern. Stay tuned to see them in both shops beginning on June 23!

I tried my mod side on for size recently…. so look on and let me know what you think.  Leila, my go to gal at Be Inspired PR challenged me with this low color, high drama project she produced for Matchbook Magazine.  Matchbook is a fabulous lifestyle publication we’ve been admiring for a long time.  Matchbook loves to fill their pages with the chicest of home decor inspiration around.  Leila pulled together a team for one edge of the nation to the other to bring this Winter Party Inspiration to life and boy did we! A sleek palette of silvers […]

So I must apologize.  I posted this gorgeous film from our Utah Engagement shoot about 2 weeks ago and promised more but then Bridal Market happened and I lost track of time!  Here is a refresher by Castlebridge Films: So many of you ask for fun DIY tips and it was time to deliver!  This Engagement Session Inspiration Shoot is all about being you, finding a place that makes you feel at home and being in the moment.  With the plethora of inspiration from blog to blog couples can get overwhelmed and feel they need to live up to all […]
