on the farm

on-the-farm3We made it over to England this morning and our first stop was to visit Rupert’s family’s farm and to see his granny, grandpa, aunt, and uncle.  The farm grows a variety of herbs and plants that are then distilled to make essential oils and the grounds are beeeaaaaautiful. Taking a walk in the rain was just what we needed to stay awake to ward off some bad jet lag… here is hoping at least.

from the weekend: wedding fun

8.25-weekendThis weekend one of my all time favorite couples walked down the aisle and said their “I do’s”. I was also the designer behind the wedding so it was a busy busy weekend making all the final touches etc. Everything came together beautifully and the bride was BEYOND stunning. I can’t wait to share the photos of the evening but for now you can see a few sneak peeks of the night here, through my instagram feed.

from the weekend: cabin arrival


Yee haw, we made to the cabin this weekend. My stress level immediately drops as soon as I hit this driveway in. We also made a bit of progress on the renovation… here’s a little sneak peak at the subway tile backsplash going in.
