Brides Tag

Kimberly and Kevin are so precious and have one of the sweetest proposal stories! I loved sitting in Brewed with my assistant talking about how they met and dreaming of their gorgeous day. We are so excited to have the future Forister’s as a part of the Borrowed & Blue Couples.

I have been waiting months to have the opportunity to post about this wedding!

I met Kelsi & Jonathan back when I was still in school at Dallas Baptist University and they have been dating for as long as I can remember.

I was overjoyed when I got the email from Kelsi letting me know that they had set a date and wanted me to be a part of their big day! The day of, everything went so smoothly and it was so comforting seeing them at such peace. The second they locked eyes, as she was walking down the aisle, everyone could tell that they were exactly where they wanted to be.

So, I would like to introduce to you, Mr & Mrs Davis:

Congrats you guys!

I am beyond excited about today’s post. This woman has created such an amazing array of products and shares the same values every woman, mother, bride and friend should strive after. I have been following her blog ever since I launched B&B back in March & for someone who never strays from her calendar, this woman is phenomenal!

Ladies, I introduce you to Emily Ley:

I emailed her a few week back just hoping for the chance to feature her and she was so quick to respond; I definitely felt that Southern Hospitality! I asked her a few questions about her blog and products and this is what she had to say!:

  • What inspired you to start this business?

I’ve always loved design and the way it can tell a story. After creating paper products for my own wedding, I started dabbling in projects for friends. Emily Ley Paper was born shortly thereafter and quickly grew into a large brand of wedding and social stationery. Since my son was born, we’ve taken a turn towards a more authentic collection of organization products, day planners and gifts for moms. I just love what I get the joy of doing – helping women build joy and simplicity into their days so they can truly focus on what matters most.

  • How have these products affected your life as a mother?
I love my Simplified Planner and use it on a daily basis to help wrangle all the things that need my attention – my family, my home, my work, mySELF and our calendar.
  • What is your favorite product?
Definitely our Simplified Planner. We sold out in three short months last year and it touched my heart to its core that so many women struggled with the same organization challenges that come with trying to do it all and be it all to the people who mean the most to us. Its been one of my greatest joys watching our Simplified Planner transform lives and help families focus on what matters most.
  •  What products would you recommend for future brides and bridesmaids?
I just love our new Simplified Wedding Planner. It’s a gorgeous white leatherette cover with lush gold foil. Inside are 8 super cute, die cut dividers with gold foil labels. A sweet polka dot pattern adorns the inside of the 11 x 11 binder. And one of my favorite parts… is our HOORAY box each one comes inside. It’s a special place to save and hold momentos from your days before you become a Mrs as you plan one of the biggest days of your life.
After spending hours dreaming of being able to just buy everything from her shop, I narrowed it down to my Top Picks!
How Cute is this notepad! Personally, I am a list maker and I
couldn’t think of a better way to show off your style than with
one of these personalized notepads!
  Each and every MOH (Maid of Honor) needs a little inspiration when it comes to shower invitations.
These invitations are a perfect way of bringing all your ladies together and celebrating the bride whom you all truly love!
These notecards are perfect for a ‘thank you’ card to use after showers or just
a way to say that you are thinking of someone!
And last, but certainly, not least! My favorite product; the Simplified Planner! The picture above speaks for itself!
I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these June 20th!
SO! If you haven’t already, go check out Emily’s website and while you’re at it swing by her blog!
