store crush: aloha from deer

Eek! Long time, no see! Posting will be back to the regular soon, I’ve been too busy watching this. But in the meantime wanted to share with you this rad store Tim found – Aloha from Deer. Fun & quirky printed gear. I’d love a sweatshirt to cozy into.

PS – new little makeover coming to favorable mention. i’m beyond pumped. as soon as i know when it will go live, i will spread the word, xx

a very bridal september

I’m alive! Sorry for being MIA, I’ve been preparing for a very busy (and exciting) September full of photo shoots & weddings! This past weekend was our Nearly Newlywed shoot in CT. Tim did an amazing job shooting, the models rocked it and the dresses have somehow become even more amazing. I loved wearing this one.

Here are a few sneak peeks from the shoot, posted this weekend on NN’s Facebook page. PS how gorgeous are those 2H Flower bouquets?! They went beautifully with every dress. Love!

thrifting finds

Since moving to Brooklyn, Tim and I have been doing a lot of exploring around the neighborhoods. One thing we realized from searching Craigslist for furniture is that Brooklynites tend to have some pretty cool things.

Here are some cool finds I’ve found at little thrift shops & the Brooklyn Flea (I just went for the first time this past Saturday!). And yes, I’m aware that all my finds are very random!

Happy Friday

Happy Friday! This weekend I hope to get a little sun but really just play catch up! I love summer but with all these weekend trips, I tend to get behind – especially on laundry. Have a good one!

PS – do you follow Nearly Newlywed on Facebook? If not, you should – I’ve been helping run the page and there’s ton of gorgeousness to be seen 🙂 xx

Back to the Basics

A few weeks ago, I letterpressed my friend Stephanie’s save the dates for her destination wedding.  I took a letterpress class in the fall, so this was my first real project. Here are some photos from the actual production part, Tim came with me to get a few shots (and to help me calm down during my troubleshooting with the press)!  I rented studio time at The Arm (ps they also run classes & workshops), I highly recommend it!

Stay tuned for the actual save the dates! Steph will be sending me the finished product soon (we collaborated), so I’ll be sharing that with you later 🙂 xx

Weekend Snapshots: Photo Shoot Madness

Here are a few shots from this weekend’s amazing  Nearly Newlywed photo shoot. Jackie outdid herself with curating the dresses, they really are gorgeous. When they are all released – I will be sure to let you know. I had a blast and met a ton of sweet & amazing people – I can’t wait till the next one!

Floral headpieces are by 2H Flowers – more on that later 🙂

Last photo is of me & Lilo – after spending much of the weekend with Tim, she seemed to be playing hard to get last night.
