Rebecca and Josh: The Welcome Party

Saturday, June 21, 2014

The Welcome Party for last weekends wedding took place at the Landings at Trillium in charming Cashiers, NC. The restaurant sits on Lake Glenville and the mountain views are simply breathtaking. The storms rolled in early {completely normal for this area!} but only lingered briefly. Southern barbeque, rustic porches, thick honeysuckle in the air, and great friends and family -- the perfect combination for the beginning of a fun weekend celebration. 

The brides family!

Tomorrow I'll show you all the pics from the big day!!

Did you guys know that June 18th has now been officially titled 'National Day of Making'???? I know!!!! Exciting, right?? I can't believe this one slid by me, but just you wait for next year -- we will celebrate!! As you know, I am a proud 'Maker' and love to promote other makers here on my little blog. Especially young makers! It just does my heart so good to know that the internet offers this wonderful spot for artists to use their God-given gifts to make money... sigh... oh, to have had the great www when I was a youngster.   


I discovered the talents of Raleigh's Sidney Lee, on a friends Facebook. This talented watercolor artist just graduated with a Communications degree from NC State {!!} Sidney has been doodling since middle school, covering notebooks, napkins and planners with her lovely lettering. With the encouragement of friends who fell in love with her art, and a friend who asked for a new logo... the idea of Leelyn and Company was born. She launched her website and online store in February and has dreams to expand her calligraphy skills and perhaps venture into the wedding industry.

'Ultimately, I pray each week for the Lord to do with Leelyn whatever he sees fit, and ultimately, for my small business to glorify Him and expand His kingdom. I am willing to take it wherever He leads!


Check out all of the beautiful items in Sidney's shop here. Or you can contact her for a custom print or logo for your business. You can also follow along on her blog, here.

Happy Monday!! I hope you had as wonderful a weekend as the friends and family who celebrated the beautiful wedding of Rebecca and Josh Layton!! I was honored to work with the couple on the planning of their special day. We had some crazy, fast, heavy storms all last week so we were crossing fingers and toes that Saturday was going to provide us with sunshine. And, it did!!! I want to wait until I get the professional shots to share all of it with you, so stay tuned for all of the photos from beautiful Lonesome Valley in Cashiers NC. 

I do

I know, I know...I have been such a bad blogger. apologies. But, I am eating, sleeping and thinking all things rustic, springtime, mountain wedding!! It's only a few days away and I am busy checking in flowers, finishing flower girl baskets, checking in with vendors and praying the rain away.
