True Story:  After 4 years of collaborating and dreaming, I am one blessed little lady to have opened up a floral and paperware studio with one of my very closest friends, Morgan.  Because we moved into the studio in March, immediately began renovations (with the help of our amazing parents and my amazing husband…more on that later), and then jumped right into our busy, busy wedding season, it’s only now that we have begun to set back and say, “Oh my gosh.  We really did it.”  This studio is a dream in so many ways…And since I love lists, I made a list why:

  • It has improved my quality of life.  I know that sounds dramatic, but I cannot convey how true it is.  Keep in mind this is coming from a girl that has been a nomad floral designer that has designed everywhere from a strangers garage, my parent’s garage, my aunts garage to the side of the road, my living room, my driveway under an easy-up, my garage-turned-working floral studio.  While the last on the list was a certain improvement in conditions, it doesn’t compare to our adorable little space that was designed specifically for designing beautiful flowers and paperware.
  • My home is my home and my work is my work.  And I like it that way!  While I totally believe that our lives should be fluid and we should be the same person at work as we are at home, the space between the two has been good.  When I’m home, I’m not working.  And when I am at work, I’m not cooking dinner and doing laundry.  It’s a good balance.  Of course, there is the occasional snowy day that I work from a computer at home, but that’s because my boss said it was okay (:
  • The studio is also a dream because it is a culmination of many, many talks and brainstorming sessions between myself and Morgan.  Morgan and I met in college and became instant friends.  After years of being friends, we starting imagining what it would be like to combine flowers + paperware under one roof.  And I’ll tell you what it’s like: it’s brilliant (if I may so myself!).  After all, flowers and paper are often two of the most important design elements in creating a beautiful wedding that reflects the personality of the bride and groom.  So we help our couples connect the dots with a cohesive vision between flowers and paperware.  Plus it’s just fun.

We’ve been asked over and over to see pics of the new studio and I promise that we will post some soon.  We’re still working on a few things that we want just right before we’re ready for the big reveal (:  And just for reference, if you are looking for Morgan’s Paper + Ink website, it is in process.  For now, check out her gallery on my website by clicking here and here.  

This wedding, from July (I know, I am way behind in blogging this summer!) was one of our very first weddings we booked together.  The bride, Susan, planned most of her wedding remotely and we appreciated the faith she had in our collaboration of designs.  What fun.  Enjoy this lovely wedding of vintage romance and casual elegance…brought to you by:

I love this design.  Tables were decked out with burlap runners with lace borders.  Centerpieces were a mix of old wooden planter boxes with lush, organic arrangements of juliet garden roses, succulents, roses, veronica, cafe au lait dahlias, scabiosa pods, astible, sweet pea, lavender, and seeded eucalyptus.  Morgan designed adorable custom screen printed wooden table numbers that stuck out of centerpieces and coordinated with everything from invitations to advice cards.  Oh cohesion: I love you.  


Boutonnieres were made of eucalyptus, scabiosa pods, wax flower, and lavender sprigs.  Tied in twine.  

Bridesmaid carried petite bouquets of juliet garden roses, succulents, astilbe, veronica, peonies, ranunculus, and lavender.  Hand-tied in burlap ribbon.
