Josh 'n Emily

When I first met Emily, we were at a birthday party for a little friend of ours. Emily was quietly moving around the room, taking pictures with her camera, documenting the day for our friend and mother of the birthday girl. We were finally introduced and I learned that we had many of the same friends, but had just never crossed paths-happens a lot in Nashville! I also learned that she was getting married and was planning to do most everything herself. A true creative soul and DIY girl! I told her that if she needed any help with flowers, I'd be glad to help her order what she needed, or even do the tedious work of boutonniere's and corsages.

A few weeks passed, and Emily gave me a call! We met at a coffee shop (my favorite place to meet brides) and began the process of dreaming up what her flowers would look like. Her colors were navy blue, grey, yellow, and white. She had already sent out "save the date" invitations, which she designed herself, and hoped to keep with the same color scheme for the flowers. It was an easy meeting. Because her colors were chosen and she knew what flowers and style she liked (classic with an off-beat twist), we looked through some pictures, I took some notes, and we were off! A few emails back and forth and the decision was made-I would do the bridal party flowers (bouquets, boutonniere's, corsages) and she would DIY the rest.

Aren't the invitations fun?! I love everything about them-the scalloped edge, the scribbly heart, the cursive much fun.

Emily's bouquet~hydrangea, ivory roses, ranunculus, freesia, craspedia "balls" and dusty miller.

Best wishes and blessings, Emily and Josh!
