I got married

September 30, 2017 I married my handsome husband Pete. We had a 3 month engagement, so planning was fast and furious, but I loved planning an event that represented us both and gave our family and friends a good time.

I have been visualizing a look and feel for my hypothetical wedding for a long time. I am not the type of girl who dreamed about fairy tale weddings, but I am the type of girl who dreams of color palettes and design elements.

Pete is outdoorsy and loves classic things. I love flowers and natural elements. Neither of us like things that are too glam or elegant. We wanted a wedding that had plenty of natural materials, and a more casual fun bright look.

I knew the types of flowers I wanted in my wedding bouquet right away. I have always loved King proteas, I used them as a focal point and built elements around them. Blue thistle was used to tie in our color palette, hypericum berries and and greens to add more dimension. Photos I took of these flowers were used for our invitations and website design. This set the floral theme for our wedding.

For the bridal party we choose to have our sisters stand up with us. They were all to pick a different floral patterned dress, for a more natural eclectic look. I love the way the dresses looked together. We loved getting to spend the day with our beautiful sisters, themed perfectly.

Frances Jaye in the spring

Andrea and I were so excited to help Jenny with another window for Frances Jaye this spring. She was really inspired by florals and spring colors and wanted us to create a garden for her windows. We created floral chains hung them through the windows to create an airy spring look for the store.

We mixed in large florals that we hand painted and attached them to the heads of the mannequins. 

We loved the way this turned out, and I personally love the flower heads! Make sure to check out Frances Jaye here, or next time your downtown Holland.

Groovy Blog

Writing scares me wee bit, but here I am starting to blog! Even though this is intimidating I am excited to get this ball rolling. I love the idea of having a place to practice my writing, to share what projects I am working on, workshops I have taken, or things I find that are worth sharing. 

This summer has been crazy busy with weddings a spending as much time in water as I can, But I am starting up some new fun projects. Fresh Cut Type is something I am just getting started with. I love working with flowers, so that is going to be a blast to continue posting about.
