Something New is coming…

08.29.2012

It’s been a soul searching process, but I’m so excited to say that I’m rebranding! It’s been going on behind the scenes and it’s the reason my blogging has become a little more infrequent. I’m super excited for the big reveal coming up soon.

Until then, a few images that have inspired me and the direction of the new brand.

S’mores, anyone?

08.10.2012

So apparently, today is National S’mores Day. I was doing a little research on “reasons to celebrate” and there are days for just about everything. Even mustard!

And in honor of National S’more Day, here are a few delectable treats featuring s’mores. I know I’d be one happy camper (pun was a happy accident) if s’more were the favors at a wedding!

Featured on Love and Lavender!

07.06.2012

There’s something so satisfying about fulfilling a goal. Being able to cross an item off a list. Being able to make a giant check mark next to an idea that was merely a dream.

So I had this idea to do a 4th of July wedding shoot back in February. I almost didn’t follow through. And it’s always a good idea to tell someone your plan or idea to help keep you accountable. Well, we pulled it off! And yesterday, the shoot was featured on Love and Lavender! Be sure to go check it out and it will be featured here next week!

Go check it out on Love and Lavender!

Thanks to our fabulous creative team!

Pinterest-spiration

Oh how I love Pinterest. If I could give it a hug, I probably would. If I ever meet Ben, Pinterest’s co-founder, I would totally give him a hug. Without seeming too creepy, of course. I recently read that Pinterest’s office motto is “Move Fast and Break Things *except data *and hearts.” I love it. And if you’ve ever been on Pinterest at peak traffic times, it seems like it breaks the Internet.

I love gathering inspiration for future shoots and ideas for wedding ideas that I love. And thanks to Pinterest, it’s so easy since it’s a visual bookmarking platform. As someone who doesn’t thrive with organization unless the structure is already there, this is wonderful. My mind is always running around (kind of like a hamster in a wheel) with ideas, and it’s so useful to have a place to keep everything. So, thanks, Ben. I heard that he was an awesome speaker at ALT Summit last week, and just hearing about all the fun things that went on at the conference, it’s on my list to one day attend.

Seriously, I remember the day a friend sent me the invite, I was glued to my computer searching for everything from interior decoration to recipe ideas to inspiring imagery.

Here are just a few of my favorite wedding inspiration boards.

Although, I do have one request to pinners out there. Please pin from the original source or permalink. (Whoa, I just got all technical, but basically it means that you would pin from the individual post instead of the blog’s homepage. If you have questions, leave it in the comments.)

Are you a pinner, too? Leave your Pinterest name in the comments! I’d love to check out your boards. Need an invite? Let me know!

How do you use Pinterest?
