I met the beautiful bride, Sarah, at the Lovesick Expo early in the year. Our styles jived immediately and I was excited when she contacted me a few months later. Many emails full of details later, I met Sarah at her house while her sweet sister and adorable mum were visiting so that we could all meet in person and most importantly so that I could see all of said details; dresses, handmade centerpieces, handmade signs, collected drinkware and napkins, (and. and. and.). I have to admit that at first, when the only knowledge I really had of Sarah and her family was what I could gather through emails and pictures of different elements to be used at the reception, I was a little confused about them all. There's so much? Would they match? As soon as I stepped foot into her darling house, all those questions were immediately tossed into the wind. Handpainted murals adorned the walls and the face of the stairs. You could tell by the differences of style in each that they all had a history and story to tell.
Each place setting had a unique napkin and wine glass, collected by Sarah and her family. Handpainted burlap baggies filled with handmade soap (her daughters are artists too!) awaited each guest. Centerpieces of moss covered books with little figurines, birds nests and eggs, and jars filled with a succulent and flower or two (que me). An old window pane with table assignments, a shadow box holding wood discs for the guest book.
Oh, and I forgot to mention that Sarah has delved into her own wedding business now. And she's going to be a rockstar.
