Southern Weddings V6 Feature | Song of the South

We had the honor and pleasure of being featured in Southern Weddings newest print issue, V6. We styled an editorial photo shoot that we called Song of the South based on the cultural music found right here in Music City – Nashville, Tennessee. It was such a joy digging into the roots of our city and finding elements that truly speak to the South, including family, hospitality, local products, friendship, faith, and of course- great music.

Get Inspired Mentoring Sessions Launch Today

September is proving to be a month like no other. Between launching new products in our Etsy shop later this month, to putting the final touches on our upcoming wedding invitation collection release (party is October 3!), and GROWING A BABY (which deserves CAPS, thankyouverymuch) I’m in awe of all the great things that we’re doing around here.

Quite simply, we’re just busy little bees around here and there is no time to question or look backward, only just to keep moving forward, and making awesome happen.

That’s my new mantra for Fall 2013. Make awesome happen.

There are less than 110 days left in 2013 and I’m ready to end this year like no other before. How about you?! With that, I’m launching GET INSPIRED mentoring sessions. I’m excited to work one-one-one mentoring 10 other creative entrepreneurs who want to make some awesome happen as well. You can find all the details and secure your spot here.

So, who’s with me in making 2013 the best it can be in the time we have left?
