Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. Can you believe we only have 15 more days until Christmas? Over the weekend I really got into the Christmas spirit and started wrapping presents with hallmark movies in the background. I have to say it has become a favorite little tradition I do. It warms my heart to find the perfect gift wrap, bows and tags. Even though I know how fast those presents get ripped open I get so much joy from wrapping it up and setting them up under the tree. I have a thing for the little details, it is something I really love about myself. I love these details on this leotard just as much!! What is something you admire about yourself? Let’s spread some self love and all share!!
So, I'm a super visual person and already the winter and spring months are filling up with amazing new projects. This morning I decided to paint/plan my goals and timeline for the next six months... and I totally rinsed my paintbrush in my coffee. 🎨☕️
Anyone else guilty of this mishap?
First up on my list of things to do in January is re-introduce my Juniper Branch Rings in gold and sterling silver. These beauties are cast in solid gold or silver from locally sourced juniper leaves that I've collected. They make an incredible alternative wedding ring in 10K, and always look lovely🌿
If you're interested in pre-ordering for an early January cast, please DM so I can have you added to this order. I am currently sold out of these in gold.
Inspiration from Google, (I kid you not), for the beginnings of a WIP coming soon. There’s just something so therapeutic about drawing architecture and sketching fine details that I love..✨ There’s lots of fun things happening this week, a GIVEAWAY! (Check out my last post), a new blog post, and BTS bits of a launch for my sweet friend, Jacelyn, of @thefloraclub 🙌🏽 Can’t wait to share them!
#sneakpeek at my favorite recent project—my little sister’s wedding suite! Who’s excited to see the full reveal? It’s less than 30 days away 🎉

Grateful is an understatement.
All because of you, your kind words, and trust in my planning expertise, I was nominated and won 2019 @theknot BEST OF WEDDINGS🍾 thank you so so much for this. 7 months of going full time in this planning biz and so grateful for how much I’ve learned, the vendors I’ve met, and my amazing clients (who I thankfully get to plan one of the best days of their lives) 🙏🏻
Excited for this + all of the plans I have in store for 2019 to better serve you.
Happy Monday, friends ✨
I finished my last wedding of the year this weekend, got back photos from Ryn and Bryan’s October wedding (image from their gallery), took a whirlwind trip to Pittsburgh and got to catch up with good friends and meet my goddaughter—all crazy beautiful. Tired and happy 😊. @jilldevriesphotography @chivintagewed
Counting down the last few days left for this year and I’m not even halfway through with my Christmas shopping list. Plus it doesn’t help either that 5 minutes in I’m getting myself something 💀 hands up if you can sooo relate! 😅 To redeem myself though with this embarrassing holiday fact, I usually prefer shopping at local craft artisans to support fellow smallbusinessboss 💙
Genius double exposure & one of my all time fave images as seen on @weddingsparrow many moons ago ✨

Only steps away from I do’s 😁 Proud father taking his beautiful daughter down the aisle. Lush greenery & rose petals everywhere, mixed with supportive and loving energy of the guests. Feels like a perfect moment ❤️
I haven’t moved from the couch in three days and I’ve binged watched three separate shows. I’m only slightly disgusted with myself, but honestly, I’m more so feeling pretty awesome about my recent life choices and I really needed that. You guys still love me, right? Social media feels like high school all over again sometimes. P.S. I’m obsessed with Sabrina and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Vastly different shows, both SO. GOOD.
If I’m honest, lately, life feels like stepping on dog shit when you you were just trying to enjoy the grass between your toes. So so messy. Everything from real challenges to persistent little annoyances wrapped up into one unexpected pile of yuck. It isn’t supposed to be this way. I’ve been asking myself what is it that is keeping us from the freedom my family longs for? What is keeping me weighed down? I’m sensing a theme in my heart for 2019 of “finding freedom”—that is my goal—so I’m asking myself, what does my family need to cut loose to find freedom? I don’t have answers yet, but sometimes hearing from others helps me hear my own. So help a girl out...What are your goals/themes for 2019? What keeps you from them?
When I started this rebrand process I knew early on I wanted The Flora Club to represent me as much as it could. A lot of careful thought went into deciding our logo/brand motif + I’m so grateful for Shelby of @slibbrechtstudio for her patience and talent when designing my very clear vision. As you know California is my home, my beautiful golden state. From the cool coastline to the quiet mountains, wild poppies can be found growing all along the way. As a kid I would count them one by one on our road trips up to Yosemite or Fort Bragg. It’s our state flower, that little wild bloom that brings a smile on your face when you spot it!
So yes, you’ve guessed it the California poppy will be the new Flora Club motif! Enjoy this little sneak peek from last weeks shoot + stay tuned for our reveal coming soon! // #poppy#california#flowers#thefloraclub

Styling tables is my absolute favourite and even for Sunday lunch I like to make an effort. Yesterday I got out my gold cutlery and used little off-cuts of Christmas tree on the place settings. I love it, I could spend all day every day making tables look pretty.
Your wedding tables are oh so important too. Perhaps you’ve already thought about what you’ll put on them, the chairs you will choose and the flowers that will be pride of place. Or perhaps you haven’t and you’re stumbling on this part.
My advice to you would be to make them work for the venue, ensure the tone of the whole wedding remains and think about the details those guests will notice. Here I wanted the neutral colours and soft details to be gentle enough to let the beautiful building @bradbournehouse speak for itself.
Have a great day.

Tag someone in the comments who made 2018 a special and memorable year for you!! Ending 2018 with only two more weddings to shoot. It feels surreal, especially with Christmas right around the corner. I’m also looking forward to my 2019 weddings and all the amazing couples, vendors and venues I’ll get to work with! Double tap if you’re excited for 2019! 💐
