Doing It All!

It’s hard to believe my last semester of college is quickly coming to a close! As things are finishing up and senioritis has taken over, I have been busy preparing for my graduation party with the ultimate goal of getting it picked up by Hostess With the Mostess (Dream on Chels!). Well that is a goal of mine --to have one of my events in the future featured by one of those blogs! I had the opportunity to work with my other intern advisor, Blair Britt  at an amazing wedding , which was posted on Wedding Chicks!  It was such a beautiful wedding, and Blair’s attention to detail is uncanny. From the ribbon to the tiny blue-painted clothespins on the escort cards that she printed herself, she will cover it all.

I don’t think there is anything that Blair cannot make or spray paint. She has an eye for things like you wouldn’t believe, and her talent runs across the board--from jewelry  making to paper goods  to her new adventure…vinyls to designing and coordinating weddings and so much more. She is always looking for ways to do it bigger and better than before. Her events are far from simple and will come with a carload of 3 Ford Edges and many times with her amazing mom and dad in tow. We have a joke that “We Bring the Edge to Events” (Trademark Pending for that slogan =) )

While working with Blair, you will find us spray painting in my back yard, discount shopping for goodies to refurbish and rent, loading or unloading  her ever-growing inventory storage,  even picking up free furniture tossed in people’s yards, or producing a beautiful wedding, shower, or other events.

Dying tags with coffee...the brothers were sad this baking job wasn't edible! 

Admiring our "free" furniture! 

She is currently in the process of planning a wedding (with 2 months notice) running her jewelry and paper goods business, and putting together an inspiration photoshoot! I am so excited for what is to come over the next few months, and I can’t wait to reveal photos of a wedding we did in January captured by the amazing photographer Gabriel Ryan, showered with florals by Bits of Whimsy, and sweetened with desserts by Sweet and Saucy Shop.

It has been such a blessing working with both Blair and Constance and the things that they have taught me are going to go a long way! They have been so gracious to have me in tow as they do their big bad thing! 

Stay tuned for details about last weekend’s beautiful wedding at the La Valencia in La Jolla with Constance, Aaron Young, Sweet and Saucy and some other amazing vendors!!
