Katie & Adam

Katie and Adam’s November wedding was one of our favorites of the season.  Katie’s family was so kind and wonderful to work with, not to mention loving every last detail of her design.  We were so thankful to be a part of her celebration!

Abby & Chandler

Being a part of Abby and Chandler’s wedding was such a blessing to me.  I ended the season last year with their wedding, and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter way to finish up the year.  Their November day was so beautiful, and full of God’s grace as they embraced the gift of marriage.  From the smiles on their faces, to the love that exuded from their families, was a perfect celebration of their love for one another and their Father above.

Special thanks to the amazing Ginny Corbett for these gorgeous pictures that captured their wedding day so well!

Bianca & Mike

I was so completely thrilled to be a part of this sweet couple’s wedding last September.  Planning a wedding can be challenging, but especially when you live 10 hours away.  All that to say, I was honored to be trusted with the planning and design for their special day.  It was such a pleasure to work with Bianca and Mike and to help make their wedding day all that they dreamed it would be.

How the Ugliest Pictures Ever are Now My Favorite Thing Ever

IMG_1142

A couple of years ago, I came across the ugliest pictures ever.  I mean…I am sure they were quite the rage, at some point in time…maybe.  But, even though the fake paintings were blinding, all I could see were the gorgeous champagne gold and white distressed wooden frames around them.

IMG_1124

IMG_1129

I held onto them, and continued moving them from closet to closet…one warehouse to the next.  Until now.

I love the new { slash-old-and-always-because-it’s-gold…lets be honest } trend to adore all things gold.   And, I think chalkboards are the most fun.  We have a lot of rustic chalkboards and signs for weddings.  But, wait…WHAT BRAIN?  I don’t have ANY chic and fancy gold trimmed chalkboards…HOLD PLEASE.

Needless to say, I was super excited to transform these {now} beauties.

Step 1. Tape the frame (I used the multi-surface 3M painters tape, and it worked so well…no peeling!  In a minute, you’ll see what a good job taping I did.

Step 2 – Head to a well ventilated place to paint.

Step 3 – Using Chalkboard spray paint (because I’m lazy and don’t like having to really paint, so I use spray paint whenever I can!)  go evenly back and forth, until it’s covered in a light coat.

Step 4 – Repeat until picture is thoroughly covered. (I had a few splatters from the spray paint, but I think it gives a little character to the chalkboard. If splatters bother you, I’d suggest using a brush to paint the board.)

Step 5 – See my good tape job?  Haha.  I didn’t realize I hadn’t fully sealed the tape, so I had a little get on my frame.  Also, this sweet little leaf fell right before I snapped this pic, so I decided to let him stay for a bit.

Step 6 – I dabbed my Q-tip into a little nail polish remover, and lightly rubbed until the black came off. No big.

Step 7- Have an adorable little fancy pants gold painted chalkboard!  Can’t wait to show it off in this weekend’s wedding!
