Check out these bridesmaids in uber awesome coral houndstooth. I cannot, repeat, CANNOT stop swooning over this picture. The whimsically retro mix is so lovely! So much so in fact, I created a wedding program to capture the feel.

Design Inspiration: Fall-ing in Love

I love Fall. It's one of my most favorite times of year. Between my uninhibited penchant for collecting pine combs and nut gathering, Fall brings out my inner squirrel. So to celebrate the season I created Initially Yours.

This whimsically sweet wedding program features a simple wreath of fall leaves and berries surrounding a single initial. Initially yours is now available in my Etsy shop. Take a peek at what inspired the look!

Carved initialled pumpkins, creamy ivory, rich chocolate wedding bouquets and ACORNS! Mine are usually shellacked with gold or copper spray paint and displayed in a bowl but I loved the idea of acorn cookies! So cute. Enjoy!
