I know, I know I have not been doing very well on this blogging stuff but I promise you its been for good reason. October was anything but a slow month for lil ol’ me.
Because of that this is going to be a FULL post of beautiful things that I have been a part of.
First off I was able to work on a Vintage table design that I JUST LOVE! I have to say that it all started when a client wanted pictures with coral linen and aqua napkins. We did our minds ever take off..... I know Some may look at this and think tacky. But I would have to say I feel it was classic.
The first weekend of October was a full one; filled with both General Conference (I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and we have 2 general meetings a year where the leaders of our church speak to us), and a bridal shower for my dear friend who was getting married at the end of the month (I don’t have the shower pictures yet).
As the month went on I was so lucky to have been a part of, and witness the marriages of not 1 but 2 of my best friends to their perspective eternal companions.
The first was on Thanksgiving weekend and I was able to do their wedding decor and we did a beautiful ‘Anthropologie’ themed wedding.
The brides grandparents had many items in their home and there was a few months of garage sale-ing that happened so that we could have a variety of tea cups and well really anything and everything that seemed old but had not lost it’s beauty.
As a guest you would get the vintage feeling right from the start by typing your msg to the Bride and Groom on a TYPEWRITER!
I want to thank Mark Derry from Mark Derry Photography & Cindy Russell who both captured some STUNNING photo’s.
This is a glimpse into Carter & Maegan Bishop’s wedding - I love these 2 and it makes me so happy that my dear friend Carter found such an amazing woman in Maegan. I am so thankful that I was able to do what I love doing for 2 people I love. I had fun putting this together and I just hope they loved it every bit as much as I did.
Congratulations C & M Bishop I love you both!
The next few weeks seemed like a blur. Anyone who knows me well knows that I have a tendensy to injur myself. And I did just that!
At the end of the C&M wedding I slipped (while cleaning up) on some water and tore 3 ligaments in my ankle along with giving myself a concussion
(its not a party until someone gets hurt)
Well I guess that just helped to remind me that I should not try to attempt to be super woman - it'll never happen.
Anyways, I did have one more VERY important wedding to do... And that was the wedding of one of my Very BEST friends - Whitney!
What can I say about Whits? Well........
Whitney is a Beautiful woman and when I say beautiful I really mean it. She is STUNNING to look at, but more to it when you get to know her you see the beauty that is inside. I am so blessed to have her as one of my BEST. She married the best man for her... Luke is bar none one of the funniest and most outstanding men alive. He has a laugh that makes you want to laugh along with him and he is friends with EVERYONE!
He make my Whit giggle and he follows along in the giggle.
I feel so blessed to have been able to be a part of their day and I love them both anf wish them the very very best!
(I dont have pics yet but I do have a snapshot of the 2 of them on their wedding day)
And that right there was my October in a nut shell - I'm sure I could throw in some Halloween fun but maybe I'll save it so that you don't need to be reading a novel.
I really have to say that I am so blessed to be around such wonderful friends and for my sweet family who helped me make and set up eveything that I needed too.
I count myself as one very lucky girl!
