Wedding Vendors

A Springtime Styled Shoot - Outdoor Tablescape

This is a fun time of year before weddings kick off in full swing, where vendors and creatives come together to showcase their work in a collaborative way.

I had the privilege of connecting with these lovely ladies (and gentlemen - Neil of Barnes Farmhouse Tables! and Mark, events manager!) at Overhills Mansion in Catonsville, Maryland to highlight ways holiday hosts could set their Easter table or springtime setting for a gathering… particularly dessert.

Jenna and Elizabeth of Little Bit Heart created this whimsically sweet invitation for us! They’re so talented and have such a fresh fun style. I gave them my vision and they executed it perfectly!

Meet Alyssa of Rogue Petal Co! She just started her faux floral company after designing the flowers for her own wedding, and is off to such an amazing start! She’s driven, full of ideas, and juuust a touch of edge to make your vision unique and not completely like all of the others… I swear I had no clue the flowers on her Instagram feed were faux at first… She’s definitely taking the whole faux flower thing to a new level! She’s awesome, definitely check her out!

Marcie Lenick, of Celebrating Love by Marcie, is, what I like to call, the fairy godmother of styling. Whatever you need, she’s got it, and knows just how to make it look beautiful. Marcie styled Tyler’s and my vow renewal and we were completely blown away by what she put together for us. Plus, she’s just so kind and giving, focuses on each of her couples and projects as if they were the only thing she was working on.

And this is Allie of Bramble Baking Co. If you ordered your cake from a magical woodland pixie, her cake is what you’d get. I’m totally in love with her style and the way she not only decorates her cakes and pies, but the botanical and nature-inspired combination of ingredients and perfectly balanced flavors… She’s down to earth and just so talented!

Missy and Neil, owners of Barnes Farm Tables are simply wonderful people! Neil brought his handmade farm table and chairs for us to use for the shoot. If you remember when I hosted my sister-in-law’s bridal shower back in the late summer last year, I used their tables and chairs and just fell in love with the quality, their responsiveness, and customer service! They delivered and set up everything for us, and made sure we were completely satisfied. They have a wide variety of tables and chairs to choose from also!

Once the table was set and all of the girls had finished their touches, it was time for me to pop in and shoot! After I’d captured each detail, it was time for Allie to cut the cake for us… It was amazing!

And a huge thanks to Julia and her staff at Overhills Mansion for so generously allowing us to come crash their front lawn for the afternoon. :)

Cocktails & Creatives | Potluck Brunch - Maryland and Pennsylvania Wedding Vendors

Working for myself has so many amazing benefits and I wouldn't trade it for anything. But one thing I really do miss is the "office comradery" and banter. It feels lonely sometimes when I'm alone at my computer working, and sometimes I just need a little reminder that there are others out there feeling the same way I do. That's why I wanted to host a little brunch get-together for some local "friendors" in the industry this morning. They drove from near and far, bringing delicious dishes along with their beautiful smiling faces.

Kelly of Petals by the Shore brought gorgeous floral arrangements for us, perfectly pale pink with roses, tulips, and ranunculus... Everyone brought such amazing dishes too. Marcie made homemade orange scones, Mary brought a homemade egg casserole, Becky came with a delicious arugula salad, just to name a few... 

I felt so blessed to look around and see everyone mingling together, enjoying themselves, and just spending much needed GIRL TIME together. So grateful for all of these women and am so excited to get together again in the future! I think it's safe to say that this should be an annual thing, if not more often! I feel so refreshed having spent my morning with these women. Lots of love to each of you!
