Finally got it to load!  Enjoy…….

To recap from earlier this week:  the office turned into a flower cooler and we loaded box after box into my truck to transport them over to WinMock

I left off explaining our friend Sami Price from  Just Priceless met us bright and early to load (more) flowers for the wedding party.  The next four or five hours were a complete blur.  We arrived at the “barn” just after 9:00 a.m. and jumped right in!  It was important that we stay true to Bri’s vision so her “binder” was our guide throughout the day.

When we arrived – we had a pretty blank canvas.  Ok.  Well, it felt actually empty.  How on earth would we ever get this looking like a dream wedding??

We unpacked box after box of mason jars – yes that’s right, mason jars – that had been painted in chalk gray.

and there were more….

Did I say lots of jars?

And I really did mean mason jars. 

Here we are – I think we might actually be counting….  “Hey Kelley!  Did someone sneak more of these things in the back door??

There were all kinds of other goodies in our boxes – what a bag of tricks!

The inspiration for many things came from the wedding invitation.   The letters B & R were used throughout:

Our mason jars turned into fun, simple floral vases with all white and green flowers.  Granny Smith apples were a nice pop of green on the table linens.  Family and Friends were assigned a table number for dinner.

In the end (many nail biting, curse murmuring) hours later ~ we were pretty pleased with the result.  Bri won’t let me share all the pretty photos – yet – you will have to check back to see the completed end result but suffice it to say it was pretty magical.

We left exhausted and exhilarated.   We ran back to the hotel room to shower, change and make a toast to Bri and Ryan and were back at WinMock just a short hour later!

Our talented friend and photographer did a fantastic job catching the entire night.  Stay tuned for those images!

We hope that you all have checked out and enjoyed our Outside of the Box category on our recently redesigned  website.  Every once and awhile a fun, creative, truly “out of the box” project comes our way.  From a sweet 16 party to hanging desk to creating a one of a kind display to creating a larger than life bee hive from scratch.  We are truly lucky to be able to work with such a diverse group of clients, events, places and spaces.  In the midst of all of our other exciting projects that we are currently working on there is one that is not only fun, exciting and outside of our usual interior box.  It’s a project that is very near and dear to all of us.  Especially ME!!  We are planning my summer wedding that will take place the end of July!

Like with all projects we have to start with location.  My fiance and I wanted a venue that was a little different, casual and  fun but still elegant and timeless for our wedding.  While searching and searching and searching (not kidding…almost had a break down during this time)  for the perfect place close to our home in Winston-Salem we stumbled upon the recently renovated WinMock.  When the website popped up it was truly a moment that felt like the heavens had opened and sent the most perfect venue for us!  (I’m cheesy.  I know.)  The WinMock is a 1920s dairy barn located 9 miles from Winston-Salem and 9 miles from Mocksville.  We chose the HUGE beautiful barn loft to exchange our vows and celebrate!

Now that we had the perfect location came our color scheme.  Being a designer it’s all about the colors and details, details, details.  I love/am obsessed with the clean crisp combo of white, charcoal gray and granny smith apple green.  It was the obvious choice for the color scheme for our big day!

After spending countless hours at night and on the weekends looking through wedding blog after wedding blog I have truly been inspired.  Some of my favorites are Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes and Modernly Wed. I have most recently found myself browsing through Pinterest.

Ryan and I describe our wedding as traditional with a twist.  All of the traditional elements of a wedding ceremony and reception, done our way.  Our ceremony and reception will be filled with little touches and details that are truly us.  From the decor to the food.  Every detail has been thought out.  I think…

Stay tuned to see how we are transforming basic glass Mason jars into beautiful charcoal gray vases, adding POPs of green throughout the space, DIYing almost everything and truly go “Outside of the Box”!
