A FARM-TO-TABLE INSPIRED WEDDING

farmers market wedding

Every once in a while I get to work with a client who, by the time the design project is wrapped up, feels like a friend. Jenni is one of those clients, and I loved working with her throughout the whole design process as we shared ideas and developed a beautiful set of paper goods that perfectly fit their farm-to-table wedding vision. 

Jenni and Jim's wedding was set in the adorable and charming Door County, Wisconsin, at the beautiful About Thyme Farm, so she wanted the paper goods to reflect a fun, laid-back, rustic-chic theme. Jenni chose my Farmer's Market Invitation design, which we customized into multiple pieces for her big day. I loved building out this invitation suite into a whole set of fun paper goods that were sprinkled throughout the wedding and reception. From the invitation suite to the individual place cards to the guest welcome packets to custom maps to ceremony programs, Jenni and Jim thought of every detail, which created an environment where every guest was welcomed, loved, and of course, sure to have the time of their lives.

BEHIND THE SCENES: JANE AUSTEN-INSPIRED WEDDING PHOTO SHOOT

florals

I recently participated in a Jane Austen-inspired styled wedding shoot, coordinated by my friend Jenny of Jenny B Photography, along with local stylist and planner, Janie Marsan of The Artful Wanderlust, and other talented vendors in the area.

The shoot was located at the American Horticultural Society at River Farm in Alexandria, VA, situated right along the Potomac River just down the road from George Washington's Mount Vernon home. It provided the most beautiful, historical backdrop for our shoot, and even the weather warmed up that day so we could shoot everything outdoors. We had an excellent team of vendors that contributed to the shoot, and we enjoyed a day of setting up, styling, sharing our various gifts, and capturing pretty photos.

I loved being able to contribute the paper goods and signage! I designed a British countryside/garden-styled wedding invitation suite and dinner menu, as well as a hand-lettered sign featuring a Pride and Prejudice quote (oh, Mr. Darcy...) in a beautiful vintage frame.

We are hoping to get the feature published in a credible online wedding blog, so until then, all I can share with you is some behind-the-scenes outtakes of the day so you can see a snippet of the process behind it all. All vendors and details are at the end of the post.

HE FIRST LOVED US: FREE PRINTABLE VALENTINES ART

Today all around us, people are focusing on love. And I can't talk about love without acknowledging who created it in the first place. I only know how to even remotely love others because of the love that has been shown to me, when I didn't earn or deserve it. Thank God that He "shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). May we love others like He has loved us - wholly, sacrificially, selflessly, and without condition. 

Enjoy this free printable as a simple reminder of these truths, my gift to you on this Valentine's Day. It comes in three colors, and you can download and print as many as you'd like. 


  • Print is sized to 8x10, so make sure to print on letter-sized white card stock (check Target, Walmart, & Amazon for good prices). 
  • Set your printer settings at highest quality and resolution for best results.
  • Ideas for displaying your print: Frame it in a pretty matted frame, hang it on your fridge with a magnet, or hang it on your bulletin board with a tack or pretty washi tape. Enjoy!

FREE PRINTABLE: MARTIN LUTHER KING QUOTE

MLK quote.jpg

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Wise words from one who lived this well. As we honor this great man today and remember his culture-altering legacy, may we be reminded of a greater One - Jesus - who calls us to live our lives with self-sacrificing love for our fellow man, eyes to see and care for those around us that are hurting, patience and endurance in suffering, boldness and faith to stand for truth and justice no matter the cost, willingness to repent and forgive, and hope in the day when Jesus will return and make all things right, once and for all. Soli Deo Gloria.

I hope you enjoy this free printable, my gift to you.
