I've been saying this for years but veils are still my favorite.

Exploring Paris is always such a dream; even more so with this grand @maecollectionparis gown. We got to meet and chat with the designer back in October and were beyond impressed with her showroom and creativity. Experiences like this are one of my most treasured aspects of travel!

One of my favorite winter velvets is this stunning and sleek @galialahav gown. Who else is just enamored with textures this winter? After a nice hearty holiday (and elbow break/surgery) work hiatus, we'll be getting back in gear next week and thinking ahead for this exciting year!

Eleven days into the new year, and what a wild ride it's been. While I could never have anticipated breaking my elbow and needing surgery in the first week of 2019 (never wearing high heels and flowy dress pants to any formal events while walking down stairs again!) I am so thankful for each and every person who has taken the time to reach out and send me your well wishes. At first, I was hesitant to even share this news on social media but I knew I needed some encouragement to get through last week.
That said, we have a vibrant and resilient community here. No one is absolutely "Instagram perfect," but everyone is talented, creative, real, and unique. I'm inspired by all of you, and your kindness. So, thank you for supporting me, checking in, and sending sweet messages. It may have had a rocky start, but I think this will be a very happy 2019!

I've been obsessed with the bold red lip this holiday season, can you tell? Headed into NYC today and remembering back to this fun shoot with a New Year's Eve-worthy @marchesafashion fringe dress. How will you be spending your New Year's Eve this year?

One of the most challenging aspects of planning and design (especially for clients) is designing out of season. Today's 60 degree weather has me longing for spring but it can be tough to visualize a spring or summer wedding from within the depths of winter! This is when photos and inspiration come in handy, like this gorgeous late spring bouquet by @trillefloral for a bridal session at Versailles. Don't get me wrong as we are still in full holiday vacation mode over here, but thinking about spring is just so fun.

So, I had kind of vowed to myself to take a few days away from Instagram after Christmas and not post, but it's so hard to refrain when you're so used to posting! Were you following along on my twelve days of flatlays? Because if you enjoyed those, come join @shotgunningforlove and me at the @curatedbehavior flatlay and styling workshop on January 26th in Baltimore (link in bio)! We only have a few seats left and would love to have you. This workshop is great for photographers, stylists, planners, and anyone interested in upping their flatlay game. (I promise, we won't be styling on the floor. I actually really don't enjoy styling on the floor and prefer to do it on a table!)
Also, 2019 is shaping up to be an amazing year already! @juliepaisley_ (with me in Paris in this photo) invited me to style a shoot with @sophiekayephotography AND co-lead a breakout session with @shotgunningforlove about styling, at @thehybridco in May! So, photographers, I hope to see you in Nashville!
Now, I am really going to continue on this holiday break so I can rest up before the exciting happenings of 2019 😉

Our twelve days of flatlays is coming to an end, and here is the eleventh! Full of my favorite antique Christmas finds, this flatlay is inspired by an old world, classic Christmas feeling. This is truly my favorite time of year. Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!

It's the tenth day of flatlays, only two days til Christmas, and we're feeling cheery! What is everyone doing to prep for Christmas Day? I have all of our presents wrapped and ready so we can relax over the next few days. Kind of want to venture out shopping tomorrow for fun but would that be totally crazy!? Call me strange, but I actually love shopping around the holidays. And I'm all about those after-Christmas deals!
Sharing these emerald green velvet @jimmychoo heels from our gorgeous bride Meredith's wedding last January. It was one of the coldest days of that winter and she rocked these gorgeous shoes all day! Her wedding was just after Christmas but anything velvet makes the perfect winter wedding detail.
