andrea + randy – so happy to have been part of all of this…from your e-session to coffee chats to your wedding and now talks over cocktails about your new home. and a huge thank you to the Wedding Chicks for featuring this sweet session too, xo.
…and another *thank you* to Petal Floral Design for the charming floral dog collar + simple styling.
as I sit on this rainy winter’s day, my mind wanders to warmer seasons and I was reminded that I had yet to share this little snippet. you may already know that I have a huge business crush on chive events - I love their business model and whether a wedding or one of their suppers, I truly enjoy working with them. the day was perfection and I had my husband in tow…we juggled cocktails and cameras and enjoyed an amazing view, the late afternoon sun, and a nosh or two all while benefiting charity at Thomas Jefferson’s summer home in Manchester-by-the-Sea. each supper supports a non-profit and on this day, proceeds from the Supper On the Sea were donated to Change Is Simple, Inc., whose approach to educating about our environment is quite inspiring. chive’s “hooked” event was quite amazing too if you missed that post here…along with some “behind the scenes” in their kitchen…and a wedding of one of their own, here.
this was one ooey gooey chocolatey mess. and it was so delicious to just look at and then of course, sip after. a hot chocolate bar is a great idea for grown-ups, spiked with your favorite poison, or without for the kiddos. recipe by maggie over on Snippet & Ink!
this is one of my favorite shoots thus far with Style Me Pretty, though I think that I feel that way after each and every one. we shot this in my home, which was great to see the their team at work from beginning to end and the ladies of SMP were super patient with my small [but sweet!] space and 3 dogs + 1 husband underfoot. for all of the Valentine’s Day inspiration, hop over to the SMP blog, xo.
