100 Layer Cake A-List Vendor List!

I was beyond thrilled when the gals over at 100 Layer Cake asked if i would like to be a part of the A-list. It's a hand-picked bunch of vendors that... well, they just like. I can tell ya it's kinda cool and sorta big... I am over the moon to be listed with some of these people. I mean, they have been mentors and inspirations to me and my business for years (even though they didn't know it). It's an honor to be grouped with such talent.

So thank you so much ladies for taking the time and the love to put together such a well thought out site. And for letting me be a part of something so special. I am so excited for you! Congratulations.

a pretty little wedding inspiration shoot...

Always so excited to be a part of such a fabulous line-up of vendors. This adorable little photo shoot put together by Christina Perry was no different. Totally adorable from head to toe.

And we were so excited to have this shoot featured on 100 Layer Cake! Click here to see the full post.

Noah Turns 7!

I couldn't resist this year. Every year when my oldest boy Noah's birthday comes around it just gets too crazy to do a Halloween party for him. But this year he wanted a costume party. So on a weekend I didn't have any events (...or so I thought as Erica and I were carrying a 100lb table through a wooded park...), we set up under a couple of sweet southern trees in a huge field.  It turned out pretty stinkin' cute. Check out the detail on the clues that the incredibly talented Erica made (who you will all officially meet on the new blogsite coming soon!). She is an amazing designer who I am lucky to have - extremely creative and she keeps me sane. She did all of these by hand. No printing here, just good ol' raw talent.

And I have to give a huge thank you to Camille Ridinger of camille deann photography who so graciously gave up an afternoon with her son to come and shoot mine. She is one cool lady and totally talented. Thanks Camille for capturing the sweetness of the kids.

Featured on Somewhere Splendid!

Maddy (of The Inspired Bride and Nonpareil) was so sweet to feature a couple of collaborations between me and one of my favorite gals Heidi over on her new blog Somewhere Splendid. I am so privileged to always have such great people to collaborate with. I am lucky enough to work with Heidi a lot both in the wedding world (the adorable Arnold + Goeun, the Free Wedding, our home featured on Design*Sponge, & for Once Wed, just to name a few) and personally (new photos of the kids coming soon!). Heidi is so generous to me and I am beyond thankful that I have her to so beautifully capture so much of my work and my family.

First is the shoot we did over at the all new event space of Lullwater Acres in Atlanta. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! (more from this shoot here!) And then the shoot at the yummy Sun in My Belly. (more from this shoot here!) Make sure you head over to check out Somewhere Splendid - it's super cute! She features all things entertaining and adorable. Thanks again Maddy!

Lullwater Acres

Max at Sun in My Belly was so sweet to ask me to help him with an event to promote a new venue in Atlanta called Lullwater Acres. This house was so gorgeous that we decided we had to do a little shoot in the dining room. The textures were just too yummy. Heidi not only took some amazing shots but did the absolutely gorgeous paper table runner of fig leaves. We had such a fun day... the day was crisp and nice and the food was fabulous [as always]. Even the Smilebooth was there!

Yay!!!! Go team. Love each and every one of y'all.
