Bartholomay Wedding

Well I am trying to make this Blog thing legit....again for my 3rd attempt not sure if anyone will read it but that's okay, because I like to write and not for grammatical effects for the emotion that comes along with it. So if you have hard time with with run-on sentences, commas not in the correct spots, lots of rambling with a side of humor you are in the right place.


My debut back in to the blogging world starts off with the cutest of couples Seth & Carly which I had the absolute honor to be a part of their magical day this past Saturday. Not only did I have the honor of creating all the bridal florals but also the florals for the reception venue as well, as an added bonus I got to work hand and hand that day with my soul sister Sara (along with her amazing daughters Jayden & Faith) who owns and operates Rae Creates Rentals which provided all the amazing eclectic pieces for the reception venue. I say "pieces" in layman terms because to describe all that Sara brings to a full wedding styling well to be honest I can't. She truly is the queen of all things amazing & her vison and how it all flows together continually blows me away.


If I had to describe the overall vision for Carly & Seth it would be somewhere along the lines of Boho with a dash of Rustic and a side of Chic. If you have just started following the PFOP journey Boho is my absolute favorite style because its just fits my messy creative brain. I love the textures, the free spirit of it for designing & the stunning beauty of it all coming together in the end. The color palette of rusts, naturals, muted greens, and the bold, rich navy blue color which was the color the bridesmaids were adorned in.


Keep in mind my pictures are not great and I am sure there are a few 10 year old's I could get some tips from but hey lets just be happy photography isn't my profession. I however keep stalking Finny Photography for a glimpse of his incredible talent because if you guessed it he was the glorious wedding photographer! So I could ramble on, & on & on but if you are like me with the attention span of a fly I will try and make this short and sweet.


Carly & Seth thank you from the bottom of my floral nerd loving heart for allowing me to be a part of your special day. It was an absolute honor to get to hear your story, see your smiling faces in person, countless annoying Facebook messages from me, to see you all beautified & handsome on the day you became Mr. & Mrs. With that I wish you guys many moons of happiness, laughs, and a house filled with an over abundance of love.
