BLOG

I don’t usually write a lot about my life because I like my blog to be a glimpse into other people’s lives, but it’s a new year and a lot is changing- for the good.

Sometimes it takes a little chaos and a lot of love to realize that you are exactly where God wants you. And that, my friends, is the best place to be. So this year is going to be full of growth as a person and growth in Borrowed & Blue. I am so so so blessed to be able to share these sweet moments with my brides and sometimes, the not so sweet moments. But in the end that is what I’m here for and I am ready for my 2014 weddings!

As most of you saw, we were featured on Style Me Pretty last week as their New Year’s Eve feature!

I am so excited to be able to share this shoot with you guys! Elisabeth and I are always looking for new ways to get creative and work together. She was actually the one that came up with an idea for a New Year’s Shoot & I was pumped! With a combination of great models and amazing vendors, everything came together just the way we envisioned it!

So, I present to you our New Year’s Eve Styled Shoot:

And of course, Jordan is always there to capture those special moments with a behind the scenes look at our shoot!!

A huge thank you to all the amazing vendors that ALWAYS make the shoot just that much better!

& with that being said.

I leave you with this incredibly moving video.

Hallelujah Christmas

I may be one of the only ones but once November is over it is time for Winter!!

Winter weddings are some of my favorites! What better way to snuggle up with your love than with a mug of hot cider and your closest friends and family? Now, I am not your typical red and green winter fanatic; I love the magical feeling of draped lights and the warm look of candles. So, here are some of my favorite picks for your Winter Wedding.

Enjoy!

This gold glitter is to die for! I love the way this looks!

Who could say no to this dress!? Oh my goodness this is gorgeous!

This is a cute way to make your guests feel at home & you could always mix and match your mugs and send them home with your guests!

As Thanksgiving is fast approaching, I love just taking the time to breathe and reflect on what I am so very thankful for. I took the chance this past week to sit and write out what I am blessed to have in my life.

1) Of course, is for a Father that is constant in love and grace; one who will never leave me. I am always amazed at the compassion that is overflowing from Him and hope to never take it for granted.

2) A family that is my number one support system. Without them, I would never of had the courage to start Borrowed & Blue. Plus, we be crazy!

3) My ladies! From crying on the bathroom floor, to spending hours together going over lines and creating branding to start a business you’ve been dreaming of your whole life; these girls are my rock. I don’t know what I would do without them.

4) Josh- This man is not only a stud, but one of the sweetest people i’ve ever met. I learn something new from him every day and love looking forward to spending that sweet time that we have together.

5) Finally, is Borrowed & Blue. It was close to this time last year that my sweet friend, Elisabeth Carol, pushed me past anything i’ve ever imagined and I created my own business. Since then, I have been able to help couples create the best day of their lives and share this special time with them. I am so blessed to be able to do what I love and I cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for this upcoming year.

A special “thank you” to those who have been so encouraging and praying over this dream.

Kelsey (the bride) and I have been friends since the 4th grade & when she told me that her and her man had finally decided to get hitched I was thrilled!

These two were probably the most calm couple I had ever met. There was such a peace over them and I was so happy to share this day with them. A special ‘thank you’ to Zac & Kaitlin for capturing all the moments in the day.
