Melissa and AJ...adorable

I have just fallen in love with one of my sweet brides, Melissa. She is getting married next may at Montaluce, a winery here in north Georgia... it literally makes you feel like you are in Tuscany. (Yes I know it’s in Georgia, but it really is gorgeous). I have just been so thrilled with her sweet words of encouragement and excitement over the flowers and d├ęcor for her wedding day.
The photographers for her wedding are one of my favorites here in Atlanta, W. Scott Chester, they recently did Melissa and AJ’s engagement session so here it is. I absolutely cannot wait to for her wedding day, I mean just look at the style oozing outta this couple. Ya think their wedding is gonna pretty much rock???
…Yeah me too.

You guys are too cute! That hat girl, is just darling and the car… well let’s just say my husband has pretty much fallen for it.

Featured in Jezebel Magazine

Jezebel magazine called a few weeks ago and asked me to do the beauty feature. I was honored that they thought of me. I thought it might be a small little feature. Little did I know that it was two whole pages! It was a sweet write up. Thanks to Emily Foley who wrote the article, as well as the Free Wedding article in Weddings Unveiled last month.

Erin + Chuck

A few months ago I got the sweetest email from a blogger that I just adore. She told me she was getting married and that she just loved my designs and really wanted me to do the flowers for her wedding, but there was just one problem….she was in California.
I told her that I really thought we could work something out. I really wanted to be a part of this girls wedding, as you can see from her inspiration boards that it was going to pretty much ROCK…

So we agreed that I would send those little lovelies out there on Thursday and she would take care of them until the wedding on Saturday. It was a little like sending children off to college. I really wanted these to be special for Erin, she really put a lot of trust in me. I mean sending these precious delicate flowers all the way across country all by their lonesome little selves is scary. So I packed them up all sweet and carefully. And waited for the fed-ex email to confirm that they had arrived… Yay!!! They did and Erin was thrilled. Here are her sweet words after she saw them for the first time...

Amy, I can't even begin to tell you how thankful I am. Those flowers were beyond gorgeous!!! They were absolute perfection. Even the little ribbon pieces mixed with twine and the beads...oh I loved it all!!!! We kept all of the bouquets and had them sitting around our hotel room on our little minimoon and I was soooo sad to have to throw them away. It broke my heart a little. I took a million pictures of them though. My husband thought I was crazy but I couldn't get over the gorgeous colors. Those dark purple peonies were breathtaking!!! Thank you so much. You made an already perfect day even more perfect. You are insanely talented. I will send you pictures as soon as I get them from Corbin! I'm married! yay! Have a wonderful weekend Amy. Speak with you soon! Best, Erin

Here are the incredible photos from Corbin Gurkin of Erin and Chuck’s gorgeous wedding day. So thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed. I was honored to be a part of their special day. Congratulations guys!!!!

Not only were the bouquet’s featured in the fall issue of Weddings Unveiled...the Free Wedding was published as well.

Weddings Unveiled Bouquets

I was beyond thrilled when Brooke asked me to do the flower layout for the fall issue of Weddings Unveiled. Little did I know that it would be 6 pages! The inspiration was outdoor rustic with lots of fun fall colors. It was so much fun.

Thanks so much to Brooke who took the amazing photos. Can’t wait to work with you again in the future!

Gaia Wedding

Natalie called me at the end of last year and asked if I would be willing to travel to Nashville to do the flowers for her wedding at the Frist Museum. Since Robb used to live there and I would love to, we jumped at the chance. Robb always says he feels Nashville is his soul’s home…
I met Nicole and Chip through one of my brides a couple of years ago. And as it turned out I knew Chip from childhood. It really is a small world after all.
Here is their gorgeous wedding photographed by Brooke Kelly.
This is her bouquet…
And this is her reaction when I gave it to her…
She was such a fun bride. Thanks Nicole and Chip -best wishes.

Featured on Design*Sponge...Twice!

I'm so honored to be featured on Design*Sponge twice this week! They called about a month ago and asked if I would open up my home and studio for their Sneak Peek series. I of course said "yes!" and called on my good friend Heidi to take some photos for me. She did such an amazing job... thanks girl! Click here to see all the photos.
The next feature was a photo shoot for Emily of Once Wed with the talented Joy Thipgen. We had a gorgeous eyelet cake from Chocolate Pink that was topped off with the cutest handmade cake topper from Dolci Odille. The photography was done by the phenomenal girls of Simply Bloom. Check out all the photos here.

A Beautiful Event

My sweet and lovely friend Ashley from Dolci Odille did this precious logo for us for a recent photo shoot...
So, there are a few of us vendors that have taken a liking to one another. We have all sort of joined together, and have found this sweet niche that we all gravitate toward. And really I am privileged to know and work with these folks. They are some of my favorite people/artists. Here is a recent shoot we did together.

Thanks to all of you guys…Joy Thigpen Environments, Our Labor of Love Photography, Sun in My Belly, Dolci Odille, Dragonfly Salon, and the model Katie Hillstead.
