September Review

Happy October! I know I am not alone when I say how ready I am for cooler temps and cozy sweaters. It looks like we still have a few weeks until we are really there, though. September was oh fun and relaxing. It was bit of a slower month for me, and if you read my August Review, you may remember it was a BUSY one, packed with traveling and weddings.
I am thrilled that Fall has begun and I have had the chance to enjoy it, away from the computer screen!

Because of some confusion on one order, I have started using a better invoicing system. Pricing for custom paper is NO joke, and there are so many factors, products and TIME that go into the equation, it can get overwhelming for a client and difficult to explain to them.  My husband helps me with this, as I continue to learn that numbers are NOT MY THING!
I am still waiting to share so many projects with you all, some styled and some weddings. This isn't really a "con" at all, but the anticipation is killing me!

September was fully embraced and restful. It was definitely quality over quantity and was FULL of inquiries. My Spring is almost booked solid, and I feel so fortunate! Mostly local events for styling and florals, and one out of town! It looks like Winter will be nice and calm for me as well, no complaints about that! I head to Nashville next week for a site visit with a lovely April bride! I cannot wait! 
I was featured on Weddings Unveiled, alongside some of my favorite vendors.
I met the sweet, Kaylie Poplin, of Kaylie B. Poplin Photography, for lunch and she is as kind as she is talented! We have some fun projects up our sleeves that I have wanted to do for so long! She is such a breath of fresh air and I can't wait to work together!

That's it for my short and sweet September Review! Hope you all had a lovely September, and cheers to October!



Thanksgiving Engagement Session

The holidays have flown by and I finally have a chance to post a few beautiful photos from my work with Jennifer Pharr Photography. Jennifer is not only the sweetest and most fun photographer to work with, but she is unbelievably talented! She has brought fine art weddings to our small town on the eastern shore in Alabama and I am thrilled to be able to team up with her.

We put together this sweet engagement session as inspiration to celebrate such a special moment with your family and loved ones. The only thing better than being home for the holidays is being able to celebrate an engagement with those closest to you! Thank you Jennifer for the beautiful photos and styling assistance (and being my right-hand girl)!


Sorry for the long post- these photos were too pretty and elegant not to share! Be sure to check out Jennifer Pharr on Facebook, and Pinterest to stay inspired!
