Bohemian Spring

We kicked off the 2018 wedding season with an intimate boho wedding at The Inn at the Round Barn Farm in Waitsfield, Vermont.  This bouquet was a breath of fresh air - color after an unusually long Vermont winter.  The floral palette featured blousy peonies, roses in bold hues, ruffly ranunculus - accented with larkspur, wax flower, solidago, hellebores, and lots of eucalyptus.

Fall Wedding in the Mountains

Image
I've been waiting anxiously to share Chris & Ali's wedding!  They tied the knot at The Ponds at Bolton Valley on a late October afternoon.  Nature presented them with a gift of an unseasonably warm day, perfect for their outdoor ceremony.  Ali's vision for a rustic elegant event featured a neutral palette accented with burgundy, copper, and russet tones.  Her gown was worn by her grandmother and her mother and was a priceless heirloom statement.  Simple decor details nodded to their spirit of adventure and love of the outdoors.  Overall their day felt both rustic and elegant...and mostly effortless!  Congratulations, Chris & Ali!

Casual Summer Elopement

Image
A wedding day full of special details doesn't have to be a big production.  A casual elopement at City Hall with best friends by your side could be perfect.  I wanted to capture a fun-loving, intimate, ingenue summer vibe with this look.  We started with a fresh palette of light blues and greens paired with crisp white and soft beige and brought it to life with the comfortable approachability of denim and just a little sparkle.  Feature flowers include Quicksand roses, Sea Holly, Nigella, Lisianthus, Dahlias, and ornamental grasses.  Handcrafted roses by metal artist Kyle Holt adorned the bride's hair and made a perfect boutonniere for the groom.  It's okay to throw tradition to the wind.  Your wedding should be a unique reflection of you!  What non-traditional element will you add to your day?

Winter Soiree

Image
Jaime contacted me about her intimate elopement-style celebration just a few weeks before her winter soiree.  As a long-time professional acquaintance and friend, I welcomed the opportunity to bring her vision to life.  Jaime and Greg celebrated with their closest friends and family at the historic Back Inn Time Bed & Breakfast.  The ambiance and decor in the coach barn provided the perfect environment for Jaime's vintage vibe.  We used a palette a white, ivory, and green and accent tables with lush runners of eucalyptus and ruscus.  Fragrant roses and freesia married with blousy ranunculus blossoms and gold gilded hypericum berries graced the bouquets and impromptu swag on the rustic shiplap wall.  The windchills dipped close to -40 degrees all day, so I designed a mini bouquet with a white pine cuff for outdoor pictures.  How about these moments captured by Eva Watson?  I don't know about you, but I think Jaime & Greg's twins really stole the show!

Creativity: at the heart of who I am.

Image
Creativity is essential to my identity as a human being.  "Creative" is the first word I use to describe myself, no matter what life role I'm standing in.  That's the thing, right?  Not one of us are defined by just one role.  We're complex "relationshipees" (that's a word my students and I came up when we couldn't find a word to best describe this human phenomenon).

I'm a mother, daughter, partner, sister, niece, granddaughter, aunt, friend, neighbor, mentor, leader, coach, facilitator, teacher, business owner, manager, designer, writer, artist, student, researcher, cook, gardener, farmer, singer, musician, historian, graphic artist...the list goes on.  These are roles I play on any given day.  Remember the wisdom of Shakespeare in As You Like It?

"All the world’s a stage,And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances;And one man in his time plays many parts..."

At the heart of the many roles we …
