kaitlyn + tim

This wedding brings such joy to my heart because, to me, there is nothing more fulfilling than a bride seeing what she envisioned come to life flawlessly for her big day. Kaitlyn wanted a garden inspired wedding that was wild and ethereal, she called it, "summer in October." Her bouquet was full of dahlias, snapdragons, garden roses, and ranunculus and tied off with Bellame chiffon ribbon. It was amazing getting to be a part of this day and seeing all of the people who so very much love kaitlyn and tim surround them and be a part of the beginning of their journey together!

katie + shane

On a sunny Friday morning up in Santa Barbara these two shared a sweet and intimate elopement that was every bit as stunning as it was magical. I'm pretty sure this couple could win an award for good style, so I was honored when Katie asked me to design her bouquet and flower crown for their special day.

flower crown bar

For Kaitlyn's bridal shower she wanted to have an event that was whimsy, magical, and intimate. Thrown by her matron of honor, Emma, she put together the shower in just that way. I came along with my buckets and vases of flowers to have a custom bloom bar for the girls as they arrived. Everyone got to pick their favorites and wear their flower crown for the rest of the evening. It was such a fun and sweet bridal shower, and I am very much looking forward to the wedding!

pacific northwest

my first time in washington was a total success. I seriously fell in love with it up there. my favorite part was kayaking in the san juan islands and I would 100% recommend that to any ocean lovers. even though I was only there for 3 days I really feel like I covered a lot of ground. pike place, top of the space needle, seattle center, great seafood, and some awesome exploring. here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip, enjoy! xx

ivy + rose

inspiration often finds me in the strangest ways. for this shoot I felt particularly drawn to the combination of blue and pink, even thought that's not in my usual color palette, but it's good to get outside of your comfort zone, right?

I draw a lot, and it's so incredibly thrilling to see something that was in your head come to life, and I am so blessed to have talented and creative friends to help make it happen.
