When Brittany contacted me about a custom piece this past winter for her rustic, bird-themed February wedding, I was already excited simply because of her details.

From a color palette of rich greens, creams & touches of purple, to birds & typewriters, handmades, and a gorgeous reception at Villa del Sol d’Oro… I knew it was going to be a very perfect wedding.

Not only did I find it lovely, but Southern Weddings Mag did as well…stop by and check out their feature on my work + Brittany’s beautiful day on their blog today!

Thanks Brittany for sharing your day with me!

And if you’re a bride that I’ve created a lovely for, feel free to send me photos of your day- I would love to share them!


Just a few days ago the  Snippet & Ink blog featured the 50’s inspired headband I created for the Oranges, Love, & Ladders shoot!

Snippet & Ink is one of the many beautiful wedding blogs I read every day and am continuously inspired by. If you haven’t ever read their blog, you should definitely swing by and check it out!

You can see the lovely feature they did on my hair piece here and here. Enjoy!

If you have been loving the images from the Inspiration to Reality photo shoot for Style Me Pretty, then you will also love the fact that all of the hand mades for the shoot are now for sale in my shop today!

I absolutely love the hair piece below and had so much fun creating it. This piece has a flower made of soft yellow tufts of cotton & vintage tulle, a touch of peach and a doily as a base, and is sweetly finished off with a button painted robin’s egg blue.

If you love daydreaming, sugar, and sweet dresses- this lovely is perfect for you!

Buy it here before it’s gone!


I have been absolutely bursting at the seams to share what I’ve been up to these last few weeks, but have had to keep it under wraps for so, so long!

I am so excited to say that just a few weeks ago I had the chance to participate in Style Me Pretty’s “From Inspiration to Reality Challenge”, where teams of photographers, designers, and vendors all come together to bring a beautiful storyboard to life!

If you haven’t heard about these challenges, or seen the loveliness they create, you can go check them out here.

I got the amazing opportunity to design the headpieces and the ring-bearer pillow for this challenge, as well as the chance to work with my amazing boss, Millie Holloman, our favorite designer, Jennifer from Salt Harbor Designs, and so many other talented vendors!

Our challenge began with this playful and whimsical board…

We absolutely loved the pastel colors, the child-like playfulness, and the whole idea of sugary treats, sweet bunting banners, and florals florals florals.

Stay tuned for part one and two of all of our images from this magical photo shoot that I’ll be posting this weekend!

Today I got an email from one of my lovely brides, Cori, letting me know that my work + her gorgeous Arizona wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty!

A short while ago, Cori purchased the Miss Gwyneth piece, and had me create a custom boutonniere to match!

When speaking with her, everything about Cori’s day sounded like a fairytale- mason jars, wildflower fields, navy blue dresses, a cabin in the woods, and the list goes on.

I was so excited to get a glimpse of her special day and all of the unique handmade details that made this Arizona wedding the rustic, woodsy fairy tale that it was!

Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy.
