It’s WEDDING WEEK!!!  I still can not believe that this week is finally here.  In 5 days I get to marry the love of my life, my partner in crime and my best friend!  What a lucky girl I am!  This week we plan to bring you a week filled with all things WEDDING!!   To kick things off let’s start with a little blog love.  My obsession for the past 7 months er….like 2 years have been wedding blogs.  Who doesn’t love a beautiful wedding?!  Gorgeous locations, beautiful couples, fabulous decor and oooh the floral arrangements.  I love browsing through all the photos making mental notes of what I love, what doesn’t seem to work and saving the best photos for inspiration.  I have also been saving floral arrangement photos for furniture market showrooms.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Style Me Pretty –  Oh, how I love thee.  Thank you for your multiple postings everyday filled with inspiration photos of beautiful weddings.  You are a brides dream come true!!

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”!
