loveandsplendor In love with these luxe #xoxo notecards from @bluemagpieinvitations, with gold foil letterpress and fabric backings. The coordinating fabric tape is the perfect finishing touch. Can't wait to write some love notes! Thanks Jeannine!! #stationery #valentinesday 3d

loveandsplendor Leo the horse, Kolby the mini Australian shepherd and Olive the animal lover. // Had a great morning touring the stunning @ggrandv in SLO with #loveandsplendorworkshops alumna @kel_sey_e! She's the second workshop alum I've seen in a week! I love keeping in touch with these gals and hope to remain a resource and cheerleader for them in the years to come. Cannot wait to design a wedding here, too!! The site is incredible and so well planned. #greengateranch 4d

loveandsplendor I guess you could say I've eased back into my knitting. It's baby hat central over here! On the blog today: a bit about these hats and a super simple pattern for them. xox #knitting #ontheneedles 5d

loveandsplendor I love this unposed photo of my Olive. She's holding her current favorite toy (a ballerina mouse, of course) and a cyclamen bloom she pulled off of our lawn. She begs me everyday to wear a "twisty dress" and I love this teal lace one from a @cottoncandydress; tights from @target and shoes by @oldnavy // #sundaybest 1w

loveandsplendor Has anyone seen Olive?? It still irks me that these curtains shrunk in the wash, but I can deal with the length when I see these cute toes peeking out. Happy Friday, everyone! #hideandseek 1w

loveandsplendor Today's afternoon break consists of a fresh cup of coffee, @compartes stunning and scrumptious truffles (thank you @amyandstuart! My favs so far are smoked salt, fleur de sel caramel and almond crunch. ) and more knitting! I also had my day made with an overdue catchup chat with my sweet friend @maraferreira Love you, M! // Happy Thursday, everyone! #coffeebreak #compartes #knitting 1w

loveandsplendor We are ecstatic to finally share the stunning images by @braedonflynn from last summer's #multeevowrenewal. Hop over to @greenweddingshoes to see every exquisite detail, then check out my blog for more of the backstory. I had the pleasure of working with @missmultee and @brianhchen on their weddings in Taipei and Los Angeles, so their vow renewal was an especially magical labor of love for me. Grateful to have collaborated with so many of my favorites on this one, including @braedonflynn @sittinginatree @sirenfloralco @foundrentals @casadeperrin @heirloomla @sweetnsaucyshop @ilovelucies @elysiumweddings @ptybar @hostesshaven @1011makeup @e2beauty @scootabaker and many more!! #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor I haven't picked up my knitting in over a year, but I finished this quick baby hat today and can't wait to start another. For my friends currently expecting, a tiny hat is probably in your future! Knitting friends -- this #swansisland yarn is amazing: organic merino wool hand-dyed with only natural dyes. #ontheneedles #knitting 2w

loveandsplendor Family and work collide! // Loving this sweet photo of Olive with her new buddy Dean at @foundrentals last week. I am so grateful for her cheerful demeanor and how she makes friends everywhere she goes. Olive loves the Found family!! @jewelatfound @laurenatfound And Jeni -- your text that accompanied this photo made me cry. I have the best friends and colleagues in the world. #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor I have had these gorgeous gifts sitting out on the dining table for a week; I can't stop staring!! Do you spy the tiny #delftware vase, too?? @imryanray @caryray you two are the most thoughtful givers. You have blessed our family tremendously over the years -- your friendship is the most precious gift. Miss and love you so much! 2w

loveandsplendor In LOVE with the settings we pulled from @casadeperrin for M&T's wedding. Botanical collection china + white lace chargers + pressed glass and cut crystal goblets + teak flatware + crystal salt cellars. The look is cheerful, charming and unabashedly feminine. Counting down until this magical day! #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor A multisensory feast. My friends at @heirloomla never cease to amaze me. They artfully present an elevated dining experience without an ounce of pretense. It's all about the best possible ingredients, thoughtfully sourced and beautifully prepared. This beet + radish + little gem lettuce salad was just one perfect dish (of dozens) we devoured today at m&t's wedding tasting. There's a reason why I have a perfect batting record in the #hlasalon: my friends (Chef @matthewpoley @nicolette4heirloom and @simon4heirloomla!) kill it every.single.time. Grateful to work alongside such inspiring and talented people. // photo from @sarah4heirloomla #loveandsplendorweddings 2w

loveandsplendor My incredible friend @imryanray made my week with these stunning images from #loveandsplendorworkshops Wait until you see the rest!!! // I don't think I'll ever get over this Delft-inspired table I styled with the talents of @jl_designs @casadeperrin @foundrentals @latavolalinen @sweetnsaucyshop. It reflects a lot of my own aesthetic: natural and feminine with a touch of whimsy. It's no surprise I kept all the vases I sourced; dinner party, anyone?? #delft #delftware 3w

loveandsplendor Happy Tuesday, loves! I was honored when my sweet friend Eden asked me to share some of my personal & professional organization tips in a guest post on @sugarandcharm. I'm no supermom but I try my best to set boundaries and pursue the priorities in my life. Staying on top of your daily tasks will ultimately free you up to be more spontaneous! Hope you check it out; Eden's blog is one of my favs for entertaining and recipes! // photo in the post by @imryanray 3w
  •   hellobeedotcom Beautiful family photo! 3w
  •   loveandsplendor @stephcdunn thanks dear!! I try to see friends once a week (outside of things like church) when possible. Most of my friends have kiddos so we do play dates, lunches, walks, etc. with babes in tow. I'm in LA about 2x a month for work and always squeeze in lunch or coffee dates with friends when I can. I also call/text friends throughout the week. We see family less now that we moved, but we stay with them while in town so it's a built in guarantee of spending time together. Social time is definitely different since having Olive, but I think I've actually deepened relationships and fostered many new ones in these last 3 years! Hope you're well!! 3w
  •   stephcdunn Very helpful. Thank you for taking the time to respond. And keep living a life worth emulating. We appreciate your light! 3w
  •   happilyeverlyafter That is such a beautiful photo of you guys! 3w

loveandsplendor Happy Sunday! // Working on a little something for a friend, due with a baby girl in two weeks (pretty name, right??). It's my first time using my #silhouettecameo -- a gift from my sister in law @eludemedspa. Safe to say I'm addicted; I want to cut all the things. @silhouetteamerica 3w

loveandsplendor What a year! // 2014 was an incredible journey of tears and laughter, of great growth and powerful lessons. I worked with some amazing couples planning their #loveandsplendorweddings. I held the very first #loveandsplendorworkshops in Los Angeles. @martha_weddings named me among their #martha_top_planners (and I'm still pinching myself). I made some wonderful new friends and was able to spend sweet time with many other favorites. I was stretched in so many ways and I know that I am stronger because of it. I look forward to 2015 with great hope and excitement, knowing both heights and valleys will be there. Whether I encounter blessings or heartache, I can lean on the same steadfast God who is always with me. I pray for another year of learning with humility and loving with reckless abandon. Thank you for following along on my journey here; I'm grateful for each of you! xox #happynewyear 4w
