Last Spring, I was blessed to work with a dream team on this backyard elopement shoot, which I had the pleasure of designing and styling (while I was 8 months pregnant). We worked on location at Goodstone Inn & Restaurant in Middleburg, VA. (I also hosted the July Kinfolk Honey Harvest at Goodstone, and worked with Meredith Kope, their gardener, on a few shoots for West Elm). What a gorgeous venue for weddings, rehearsals, special dinners, weekend escapes. Their gardens are perfection, and the assortment of guest rooms and homes are simply perfect.
Kelly Sauer documented the day in photographs. Kelly has a wonderfully artistic eye, and captures beautiful moments. I will be sharing more of her photos from this shoot over the next few weeks. Tia Stockton made the mini pies, which clearly stole the show (and had the feature named after them). She also assisted with the styling AND jumped right into the role of model. Rebekah Pizana and Kyle Murray were our gorgeous bride and groom. The flowers we used were all freshly picked by yours truly at Fields of Flowers in Purcellville, VA. Fields of Flowers is my favorite place to find in-season flowers, and I'll be featuring more of their blooms later this year.
Tomorrow is the three year anniversary for this little blog! I might just bake a cake to celebrate. What a surprising adventure the past few years have been. I never imagined this little creative outlet, which started during my senior year in college, would turn into what it is today, and bring me - directly and indirectly - most of the work I do now. 2013 was an incredibly year for growth, and I'm just thrilled to be announcing - very soon - a few little projects for 2014 that I've been working on behind the scenes. Thank YOU for following along and making all this possible.
