Steve of Sinclair Moore is having his annual workshop scholarship giveaway. To enter you have to share your dreams and heart. He asks if money wasn’t an obstacle what would you do and where would you go?
Here is my truth, if money wasn’t an obstacle I would stop working. If I could go anywhere I would stay at home with my girls. I know this sounds boring. I could have said, I would buy a yacht and travel from Hawaiian island to island. But my truth is I am tired and I have seen my daughters grow more this year than ever before along with my business. I don’t want to be a stay at home mom I have done that job and bow-down to all the brave and strong women who do that with grace. Many of my clients and industry friends know I have begun the reorganization of my business to allow me to spend more time at home while spending more time on exclusive projects. I understand now more than ever that less is more. When my husband lost his job at the beginning of this year I had to take on the financial obligations of my household while balancing my business finances. It has been the hardest I have ever worked in my life and I worked on both preproduction and on-site installations while pregnant until hours before my babies were born. Realizing what a burden he has had on his shoulders to maintain our lifestyle has been beyond humbling. If I could dream it would be to see far into the future. To see that my plans to limit my service offerings to just a limited number of events while offering a more personalized experience will work out. That taking this risk will be worth it.
I’m glad to have had the opportunity to enter this scholarship it gave me a chance to write it down and own it. #sinclairandmooreworkshop @sinclairandmoore @kristenhoneycuttphotoco

On a cloud this week. It’s shaping up to be an epic wedding weekend. We have three super fun and gorgeous weddings in the works. Follow along our stories as we make these wedding designs come to life!

I used to get the jitters the night before weddings. In some cases more so than the bride. I’m guessing here but it was intense. Years later I get butterflies. Which seems to be so appropriate as our original logo was a butterfly. I woke up today so excited. I can’t wait to see it all come together. I’ve been told that on wedding day I have a calm demeanor and don’t seem to let the little things trip me up. The truth is I have learned to go with the flow. Knowing that you are capable of handling anything that comes yours way is a powerful tool. So I say to you use your powers. No matter what your day may bring be it flowering at a wedding, working on a Saturday or being mom or dad. Put your best smile on and face the day knowing you are a bad ass.

Can you even? I mean I can’t even. Is this real life? #givingmelife @melissa_checa and her photography skills have come a long way! #yasgirl

Kiki do you love me? Has been the on going lyric of the day in my mind. Not sure why... We are in a sea of flowers this week and it’s glorious. I have had the pleasure of working on the event design and flowers for such a laid back bride. It’s all coming together and it’s falling into place so seamlessly. I can’t wait to share this wedding along with two other awesome couples weddings. Wait til you see my next post. It’s going to blow your 🧦s off!
By the way this ones for you @leslieschor //

This weekend we worked for two lovey couples. It was really fun working on a mix of tropical and elegant white florals for Melanie and Andrew. And switching over to textured sunset tones for Krista + Corey. I wish these guys all of the best as they walk hand in hand on this journey of marriage. To see more from these weddings visit our stories today or highlight “Real Wedding”

If Ever After was a bride this is what she would want for her wedding. It’s funny to think that what was once my only baby has grown up so much. This coming April we will be 12 years old. I think this was an appropriate for a brand refresh shoot. Thank you so all of the amazing vendors involved in making our brand shoot so reflective of our love for all that is pink and textured. //

Its me! and my not so favorite babies breath. I love this picture so much I only wish I wasn’t hold babies breath. In an ideal world I would be holding pizza. Only pizza gets that much admiration from me. Of course I’m kidding! I look at my husband like this... when he’s got pizza for me. I kid I kid. So this is me. I usually share a lot of everyone else that makes Ever After. The truth is I wouldn’t be here without everyone who has joined me in my journey. I am an awkward human and although I don’t mind the insta story videos I turn into a hunchback when pictures are taken. That or all the rolls are in full affect. I’ve learned to love the rolls, wait did someone say pizza rolls?! Sorry 🍕 on the 🧠. What can I tell you that you don’t already know about me? If it’s not obvious I love flowers. The art of making something that will transforms someone’s day is the kind of magic I love. I’m also have another super power, I can make tiny humans. My eldest(gosh time has flown) is 6 and she was born an adult. She is organized, caring and a better adult than me in many ways. My second is 19 months in normal people speak that’s like a year and half. She’s our unexpected blue eyed babe. There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not reminded of my grandfather by her. I lost my dear grandmother this year. I often wondered if having another human might yield me the same results and I’ll have my Mima back. But who am I kidding this florist here is not having any more humans. So when I’m not making humans and flowers I am thinking about vacation. I love the idea of travel, going somewhere else, doing other things like a different person for a few days or weeks. Well I guess I’ll end it here. I’m happy you are here and 🍪’s to those who read this novel. Btw @merariphotography rocked this shoot🐶

The first step in our rebranding/refresh is finally out. This one here is our most complex logo, it’s fresh and a bit trendy but perfect for social media. We have two more options. Our more professional full name logo and an icon. I’m really excited to finally share this one. It has been sitting in my computer since May! I’m not a procrastinator but I couldn’t bring my self to share it yet. Maybe it was too personal for me or maybe I was scared of what you all would think. Who knows! It feels almost overwhelming to share but there is a certain sense of peace. In the coming weeks I’ll be talking about the changes that will be happening with Ever After across the board. It’s going to be fresh yet elegant with a contemporary feel. I hope you all love this logo as much as I do. Thank you @kevin.rostran for nailing the vision on the first try!

This week has flown by! It’s our second wedding week of the season and we have been conquering every task. I’m very happy to be home but missing this little slice of heaven that is @loblollyfarm I am also missing Courtney and Benny. It’s funny how life brings people into your world for a bit and then takes them away. As if for a moments time you both need each other and once you are strong enough to be on your own they go on with their own lives. Courtney came to intern for us and was such a pillar of strength. She was as fearless as ever and never gave up on any task big or small. When she left us I was occupied with my own life as I had little Lotte and many sleepless nights. Seeing her achieve 40 weddings all in her own makes my heart so happy. As she finds her place in her new world I wish nothing but the best for her. I’m glad I got to join her once more this past weekend. Xo -Helen

Just a little someone we designed with a touch of fall inspiration for a #bizbabe picnic we are having next week with some of our faves @_pialisa @project_nm @unearthedrentals to name a few.

A pretty mess was made this weekend. I’ll be sharing on my stories my trip to work for @loblollyfarm Make sure to check it out. It’s a little travel, a little behind the scenes and whole lot of pretty!
