Events :: Brandi

Yesterday a group of friends and family threw a shower for our friend Brandi who is getting married in May. I was thrilled to design some stationery for it and help with flowers. The color palette was Navy & Yellow. “B is for…” was the theme my sister had picked. Here are a few photos of the invitation as well as some instagramed photos from yesterday! I’m so excited for y’all Brandi and cannot wait for the wedding day!! : )


Paper :: Sadie

Today I’m sharing the paper products from Sadie and Trayton’s weekend that took place on Saturday! It was a beautiful night! I am so thrilled for the two of them and of course jealous that they are currently in Hawaii! ; )

Sadie’s theme was based on The Notebook and hearts and she really wanted to incorporate one of her favorite quotes from the movie. We started with the Sadie Suite (yes, it was named after her!) and modified to fit the theme perfectly!


Color :: Pink, Silver & White

Happy Monday Everyone! Last Saturday, the lovely Sadie and Trayton were married! It was a beautiful and windy day! Today I wanted to share with you the inspiration board I created for them. Sadie had been very inspired by the movie The Notebook so we focused on this aspect incorporating lots of her favorite quotes from the movie, vintage elements like muslin, chalkboards, baby’s breath and of course birds! Check back Wednesday for their custom paper products! Enjoy!!

I designed this inspiration 6 months ago and unfortunately don’t have photo credits for these images. Please let me know if you know the source for any!

I am so excited for Sadie and Trayton’s wedding tomorrow! Sadie has been a sweetheart to work with and came to me to with really fun inspiration when we started planning. We built off the original idea and came up with some unique details that guests are going to LOVE! The one and only Jason Cohen : ) will be shooting the wedding and shot their adorable engagements in New Orleans! Love you Sadie!! Enjoy!!

Highlights :: February

Time seems to fly by these days. I thought I’d start chronicling little highlights from the past month and remind myself of things I’m grateful for. It’s so easy to blaze through life and forget! To be honest, when I first tried to think of what happened this month, it seemed pretty average. Taking a few minutes to think reminded me of the exciting moments! Sooo here goes! Enjoy!!

Launched my personal project Val & Words. Just added four more books today!

Showered one of my very best friends Jenny with a baby shower for Judah Lee.

Received Best of Weddings for Events and Invitations!!

Celebrated Valentine’s Day with my love.

Started running again.

Happy Feb. 29th lovelies!! Every four years, we get a whole extra day. What will you do with your extra day this year?? Me? I’ll start it off with a little inspiration!! Black and Cream is so timeless! For the most part, it’s pretty formal. For a Southern twist, I love this cream tux with black bow tie. Perfect for an early spring outdoor wedding!  Enjoy!
