Forest Hall, Love is Love, Styled Shoot

This summer, vendors across Raleigh NC teamed up to put on a host of inclusive styled shoots initiated and organized by Kevin Holland. This was such an amazing chance to team up with some of my favorite vendors and stretch our creativity. I got to make the loom in our shoot by hand through our second company, Pop The Champagne, and it was such fun! Months of figuring out how to bring our vision to life came together in the most perfect way with the most supportive group ever. See the beautiful shoot below!

Trilby’s Wedding Day!

Trilby and her mother came to us just 45 days before their wedding to help finalize last minute details and help with the big day and we are so happy they did! Trilby, Grant, and their families have such big hearts and included as many of their friends and family as possible in their big day. They started the morning with a big church wedding where they were able to share their ceremony and cake cutting with as many people as they wanted. After celebrating there they left for their reception which was set on their picturesque family property. The reception was the perfect mix of intimate family and laid back friends that embodied the kind of relationship dynamics that were so clear in the couples devotion to each other. Between tearful toasts from the father of the bride, and fun dances on a packed dance floor, the evening was perfect and we hope you enjoy the sweet photos as much as we did!

Hayden’s Bat Mitzvah!

This past May we were so excited to work with our first Bat Mitzvah family as both planners and decorators! Planning Hayden’s special day was so much fun as we sought to fill the evening with as much love, pride, and individuality as possible. This was a big step for Hayden towards becoming an adult which she took with a grace far beyond her years. It was so touching to see all of the family and friends that came to support her in this transition and the way in which each were recognized and honored for their part in her journey to where she is now. We hope you enjoy the photos below as much as we did and look forward to many more of these kinds of events to come!
