Wedding of the Year!

My sweet, sweet friend (and Bayside Bride co-worker), Natalie tied the knot just last month to her boyfriend of 7 years! Her wedding was breathtaking. Everywhere you looked you saw love. I am thankful to not only be one of her friends, but was also a bridesmaid! She even let me head-up a couple of projects like table numbers, several chalkboards placed around the property proudly displaying the couple’s hashtag for Instagram and Twitter, and a few other projects. Here’s a glance at the table numbers and a chalkboard, created by Yours Truly. For more amazing shots of the wedding, check out the talented photographer Katelyn James or the bride’s very own blog post here. The photographs are courtesy of Katelyn James.

My Very Own Wedding

On May 28 2011, one of my 7th grade dreams came true and I married my now husband, Steve. Luckily, one of my good friends was there to photography the entire thing – Krista A. Jones. And thank goodness, too! My wedding was not only one of the best days of my life, but I was able to display some of my talents and creativity! I designed the invitations for my wedding, as well as the programs, seating tags, seat backs, menu, table numbers, guest book, wedding sign, boutonneires, and my present to my husband – cornhole in our school’s mascots and colors. Yes, I built them and painted them myself. Check it out!

Fall Wedding Shoot

Last Fall, we – Bayside Bride – put together a shoot at Richardson Farms located in northern Maryland. The shoot went fantastically. I created a couple of things for the shoot, like carved pumpkins, wood-burned a guest board for the couple, designed the invitations and menu, and lettered out the chalkboards. Special thanks to Krista A. Jones Photography and Natalie Franke Photography for taking all the pictures. Check out some of the shoot:
