Lavender Inspiration


Greetings sweet readers,

So I am back at it my friends! It’s been a while and I can not believe that I haven’t shared this editorial shoot that KT Merry Photography, Maria from Dreamy Whites and I put together. I love working with people that love collaborating with others. To me this is the essence of a real wedding. Teamwork between your new soon to be parents, you and your fiancé, and sometimes your budget. Everyone working together to create something memorable.

For me this day represented the best kind of collaboration. Laughter, ideas, new friendships and beautiful simplicity.

KT had this great idea to hire an artist to paint the scene from the ceremony for the couple to have in their home as a reminder of that day. Brilliant!

I will be sharing my favorite BIY (Buy It Yourself) lavender items and one super easy DIY lavender project. I believe that DIY should be easy, beautiful, inexpensive, and useful in real life. After all what bride wants to be stuck with 12 beaded monograms…. what do you do with them?!

That is exactly what I did, little hand beaded monograms that sat on the tables…Seriously, what should I do with them?

I hope you enjoy this lavender inspiration as much as I do. Tell me what you do with lavender and maybe I will make it a BIY feature!

    I LOVE this shoot so much, Sara. That venue is just stunning and all the details are so lovely but by far my favorite part is that GORGEOUS little girl. :) xoxo
