a lovely workshop

05.13.13  |  Nuptials, Fashion, Travel, Personal

I am excited to share a few LOVELY photographs I took while attending Elizabeth Messina's A Lovely Workshop at the Sea Island Resort in Georgia last month. Her workshop was truly an inspiration and I was so honored to learn from Elizabeth and her amazing friends Leah MacDonald, an incredible encaustic master and book maker and Martha Stewart Weddings photo editor Shira Savada.

I will be sharing some of my favorite photographs over the next few months from the styled shoots Elizabeth and her talented team dreamed up and put together. Please enjoy all the beauty and make sure to check out the websites from the talented people that contributed...


It took MANY creative individuals to produce the gorgeous styled shoots and all the prettiness for us to capture. The fashionable Ginny Branch was the talent behind the design, Blue Eyed Yonder styled the out the sets, and florist Amy Osaba put the finishing touches of flowers on from Fifty Flowers and Cut Flower. The models were draped in beautiful gowns from Chelsea Rose Bridal, Ivy & Aster, Claire Pettibone and The Sentimentalist. Gorgeous headpieces from my personal favorite Twigs & Honey and jewelry from Construct Jewelry completed their looks while hair and makeup artists Claudia Mejerle and Erin Skipley dolled them up to perfection.


We were also showered by so much magic and beauty the entire time with a swag bag from Wedding Chicks filled with gitfs and goodies from Cacao-Caline, Cupcake Vineyards, Shop Ruche, Plum Pretty Sugar, You Smell, Monkeys Always Look, TIBI, Artifact Uprising, Velvet Raptor, Wiley Valentine, Ice Milk Aprons, Southern Sprout and MANY MANY more!


It was truly a magical and inspiring three days...
How LOVELY indeed!

an irish lullaby

04.27.13  |  Travel, Personal

Over in Killarney
Many years ago,
Me Mither sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low.
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good ould Irish way,
And l'd give the world if she could sing
That song to me this day.


"Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, hush now, don't you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral, that's an Irish lullaby."


Oft in dreams I wander
To that cot again,
I feel her arms a-huggin' me
As when she held me then.
And I hear her voice a -hummin'
To me as in days of yore,
When she used to rock me fast asleep
Outside the cabin door.


For my dearest and sweetest Grammy Lily, oh how I miss your sweet Irish Lullaby.
xoxo
