Rebecca and Josh got married!

Sunday, June 22, 2014

The nuptials took place early in the warm evening of the last weekend of Spring. Summer Chapel is nestled deep in the woods of Whiteside mountain in Cashiers, NC. This wedding day had been years in the making for Rebecca and Josh, and with a large wedding party and a ton of friends and family that traveled hundreds of miles, we set up overflow seating under a tent right outside the tall, open windows of the original 1917 school house. 

I came to know the bride through her aunt {one of my favorite clients and people!} and loved that she selected  beautiful Cashiers, NC, the village where her family vacationed, as her destination wedding spot. This gorgeous area needs little assistance in preparation for a celebration, but I loved creating lots of personal touches in the way of painted signage and menus, custom painted pillows, twig monograms and moss covered flower girl baskets. 
After the ceremony, a reception followed at Canyon Kitchen in Lonesome Valley. This picturesque southern Appalachian farmstead, with it's sweeping green meadows, thriving gardens and the sounds of cackling hens throughout the granite walled canyons, is simply the perfect rustic spot for a celebration party. It truly is one of my favorite venues for a wedding celebration.

Rebecca and Josh, it was such an honor to help you plan your special weekend. Your love is a true testament to perseverance, dedication, and devotion.

This should have been posted yesterday--blame it on Blue Monday or a confused pick.

I thought I would share a little round-up of what's been going on 'round these parts.

We have enjoyed cheering at some great basketball games.

We were excited to see this shot in the Sylva Herald.


 We finally found a free afternoon on Saturday and we were able to get Maris to Wink.

   A little wash, loads of layers and 6" lighter, resulted in this.


So much healthier.  


We got to run into Target. I spotted some really cute items, which may be old news to you guys, but, I can't even remember the last time I was in. 

Mirrored cubes.


Mirrored trays and tables.

Sweet little vintage inspired dishes

Silky chevron

Pretty covered books and crystal bottles.

Pretties for the wall


Love the shape and the color of this lamp.

Great X-bench

These lamps look just like vintage hob nail milk glass! I should have taken these home. {And notice the little chevron boxes that I stuck behind the lamps--I should be a stylist}   

Good stuff, Target.  


We also got to enjoy Maris' new Christmas present.

Maris loves to bake. Do you remember this great cake she made last year? Robert gave her this neat cake slicer for Christmas. It comes with a slicer, a lifter and an adjustable mold.     

Her impulse to bake usually hits after 9pm...much to my chagrin. We didn't have a cake mix in the pantry, but this didn't stop her, she made the cake and the chocolate icing from scratch {thanks pinterest for great recipes!}


She used vanilla pudding as her filling in between the layers. It was delicious.

Do you have or know about some great cake decorating tools that Maris would enjoy? Please share!


 Ok, friends, I feel that we are caught up!
