Our unique wedding celebration was on November 10, 2018 — black tie in a boxing gym. My dad walked me down the aisle in a landing bay for parked vans, accompanied by a live pianist. Adam built our chuppah with trees felled from my family’s cottage. He also built the tables our wedding party sat at, beneath mossed chandeliers hung from the industrial ceiling. Our band’s “stage” was set up in a boxing ring. I designed all the paper goods and wore my grandmother’s silk gown. We skipped the cake but staged an extra bartender for boozy hot cider add-ins at our dessert bar. That’s just how we roll. Oh, and it was all planned during our a seven-month engagement. A huge thank you to all our vendors, but especially Parsonage Events for absolutely blowing me away with their installation, the Downtown Boxing Gym for your incredible hospitality, and Casey Brodley for the photos and video we’ll forever cherish. Though I’m a notoriously private person, here’s a glimpse into our wedding day. It was certainly an unforgettable one.
It’s hard to put into words what it means to watch your brother marry the love of his life. It’s even harder to do this when that love has been unofficially part of the family for many years already. Add to that: having the chance to serve as a small part of their vendor team for their Eastern Market wedding. I pride myself on being a decent writer, but for this experience, I’m at a total loss for words. Mostly, it’s just a joy. Seeing the incredible photos from Jill DeVries Photography helps to relive such a beautiful day. (more…)

I was introduced to Cecelia by a mutual friend (and one of her bridesmaids), sweet Staci. I’m so glad she put us in touch, and I was even more thrilled to have the chance to work with Cecelia and her mom on the custom invitation for her wedding celebration to Kegan. There were tons of purple and pink florals on both the invitation suite and at the event, where they celebrated at Oakland Hills Country Club. Everything tied together beautifully and cohesively from start to finish – that’s the goal!
It was a Sunday morning in August of 2017, around 10:45 am or so, and I got an inquiry on my website from this girl, Dani, who was a guest at one of my client’s weddings the night before. Her form basically was like “So… I was at Rachel and Justin’s wedding last night – loved your work. I want to meet with you for our wedding.” This other couple was still at their out of towners brunch and this girl was on itabout their stationery vendor for their Castle Farms wedding the following summer. I liked her already.
