Freelancing: Wedding Flowers

Recently, I was asked by a beautiful bride-to-be to design her wedding flowers, and let me just say that I could not be more excited! Heather and Walter will have a lovely, traditional ceremony at their church, followed by what sounds like one HECK of a reception at one of the most scenic rooftops in the Houston Heights. Hurry up, March 2018!

After some back-and-forth and a consultation with the sweet couple, I put together a few design boards for this project. Here they are, along with some inspiration images, if you’d like to see:

Let’s Get to Work

Well, I’ve been neglecting this blog/ website/ project for too long. This last year has been full of life, work, and the usual chaos (excuses)… but I’ve decided to invest a little more time curating my portfolio, sharing my work, and putting my thoughts out there for whomever to look over. We’ll see if I can stick with it.

A Curated Life

I spend an indecent above-average amount of time browsing for inspiration on the internet through blogs, Instagram, online magazines, Pinterest, etc.

I am a twenty-something girl who works in a creative industry; this habit should surprise no one.

But this morning I tried to create a curated Pinterest board to define my style, and man… it was tough. I find inspiration everywhere and find joy in flipping through beautiful pictures and ideas, but I’ve never sat down to truly attempt to define myself in a single collage with a limited number of pieces. I had gotten this far when I realized it’s impossible. There will always be more images to add, more floral-arranging/home-decorating/scone-baking/margarita-shaking ideas to collect. The world is full of so many ideas and people doing spectacular things, and we are lucky to spend our Saturday mornings perusing it all.

Springtime

“sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love

(all the merry little birds are
flying in the floating in the
very spirits singing in
are winging in the blossoming)

lovers go and lovers come
awandering awondering
but any two are perfectly
alone there’s nobody else alive

(such a sky and such a sun
i never knew and neither did you
and everybody never breathed
quite so many kinds of yes)

not a tree can count his leaves
each herself by opening
but shining who by thousands mean
only one amazing thing

(secretly adoring shyly
tiny winging darting floating
merry in the blossoming
always joyful selves are singing)

sweet spring is your
time is my time is our
time for springtime is lovetime
and viva sweet love”

– E.E. Cummings
