I’ve always loved milk glass.  It’s timeless and can be used at modern or vintage weddings.  It’s sleek white lines make a clean addition to any table.  Here is a collection of some of my favorite centerpieces with milk glass vases.

It was a GREAT start to 2015 with lots of fun projects!  Above, some of our vintage props made an appearance in the digital mywedding magazine and I creatively directed + styled the photo shoot!  I worked with so many favorite vendors so be sure to check out the online magazine + the print version on newsstands February 17!

I helped design photographer Kamila Harris’ booth for the Lovesick Expo.  All of the imagery used in her story board (directly above) was her own to ensure she’d attract clients that were truly her style.  Isn’t she the cutest!?  Check out her amazing work here.

And finally, I had too much teaching styling to the mini fashionistas at The Fashion Class!  Below is some of the of the amazing “styling” work from the students who are only ages 6-12.  It’s such a great experience for kids interested in fashion + me too!
