Folks- I apologize for my severe lack of regular posts to the blog! I’m horrible, I know! I don’t know what has gotten into me other than being incredibly busy with fun projects and just not having enough hours in the day! Plus, not to mention…on a darker note- my dad- a heart surgeon himself- had a heart attack this Wednesday night…and I flew back to my hometown to be with him. All is well and he’ll be fine!!! Yay!!! But I suppose that’s not helping on the blogging front. Here’s an update!
On Wednesday I was able to participate in the setup and styling of a mock wedding for the amazing Share the Love and Walk Through a Wedding tour by Justin & Mary. I got a glimpse from behind the scenes, rather than just handing my paper designs off to someone else to setup. And what do you know?…I loved being a part of the excitement! Styling = fun. Who knew!? 🙂
The setup was fab, the flowers were gorgeous, and of course the venue (Sodo Park) is amazing! Sodo is a huge HUGE raw space with amazing windows, super incredibly high ceilings, and awesome rustic wood, beams, & paint. I considered this venue for my wedding a couple years back. LOVED it, but we ended up deciding we wanted a smaller space since we were inviting a small number of guests- no way we could have filled it!
On that point…the craziest part of setting up Walk Through a Wedding was realizing how big the space was compared to the sets we had staged. I couldn’t get over how tiny & unimpressive our sets looked, even though they were fabulous! What the heck? But really, it’s all in the photography & how all of the details are captured…which leads me to my next point…
We were featured on Justin & Mary’s blog where they posted a sneak peek of the shoot for all to see (scroll down a bit on their page)! Enjoy! All the paper goodies & bunting you see (Kisses 5 cents) were my designs in case you care. :) The whole thing turned out soo swoon worthy and gorgeous. Love!
