This rose is unreal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Forever crushing on Quicksand roses. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PC: @emilyharyphotography
One of the biggest color scheme surprises I had this year was all the purple. This color seemed like it had gone missing from many bride’s radar the past few years, but it’s back in full force this year. 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m not even mad, because ranunculus come in the most perfect deep jewel toned purple and I can’t resist. 💁🏼♀️ (As seen in @annalisajoyy and her maid’s bouquets) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, these dresses are killer. All of them. 👌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Captured by @arielle.peters Planning by @simplybesoevents
When @emilyharyphotography captures the colors of the sun setting through color-changing trees just as they looked IRL.😵 And simply because the weather has come down about 10 degrees today, I’m already counting down the days to fall. 🍁⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But before you call me a basic white girl, it’s actually not because of PSLs. I actually can’t stand Pumpkin Spice Lattes. 🥤 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I mostly just can’t wait be outside more and breathe in that crisp, cool air. (Note: cool + crisp) Heat makes me melt, and summer is the worst. I’ll take all the other seasons before summer. Because sun. Heat. Mosquitos. Heat. Sunburn. Heat. HUMIDITY. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Does anyone else share this opinion? Where are all my hot-and-humid-hating friends at?
Wedding season hit with a whirlwind, and it’s been the first week we’ve had without a wedding so far! Throwing this photo back to Annalisa + Chandler’s wedding in May. @arielle.peters has a whole recap over on her blog, and purple lovers, you gotta check it out! (Or wedding lovers in general 😉) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some days (or weeks), you just need to be around other people while working. People were created for community, and without it, we can get inside our own heads too much. (Guilty as charged 🤦🏼♀️) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve enjoyed working on website SEO with @emilyharyphotography this Monday; dreaming up project details with @simplybesoevents on Tuesday, and today I’m simply working along side my sister @swopedoffherfeet and a friend @ellendaynomore as they chase their own business goals. 💁🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re a small business owner, make time to get out and be around other people! Call up a vendor friend and work with them at a coffee shop. 🙌🏻 (You can call me, I usually don’t bite 😬)
Creativity doesn’t take a day off I guess. 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was too inspired by @jamiesmoore and her beautiful pie. So this is what ensued: After I decided to get started, I realized I don’t have any star cutters, so cue me cutting out baby stars with a steak knife. Next, I realized we didn’t have any loose blueberries, so cue me picking through a fruit salad mix to find enough to do the corner of the pie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lastly, I couldn’t just “take a photo”, and figured I may as well try my hand at a pie flat lay (Creds to all who do flat lays for realz), so cue me sprinkling flour and sugar around like I had a clue what I was doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then I figured I may as well pull out all the stops and retrieve my marble slab for the background; and before I knew what had happened, I was balancing said marble strip on a barstool near the sliding doors for that perfect natural light. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And then I realized my hair is still up in a towel and has dried the part straight down the middle, but oh well, at least I have a cute Instagram post to celebrate the 4th of July. 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #worthit #fourthofjuly
