Featured on Style Me Pretty!

I’m so thrilled to share that Erin and Pete’s wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Texas yesterday! Jennifer Laura Design out of Houston did an amazing job coordinating with the couple to ensure that their vision came to fruition, and it’s a dream :)

I usually don’t blog a ton of details, so if you’d like to see the full she-bang, hop on over to Style Me Pretty to see all the pretties! Click on the image to view more!

DIY Lavender Hair: Redux

A year ago, I shared my DIY purple ombré hair. This has been the most popular post of all time on my blog — much to my surprise! After going back to black for a little while, I felt the itch to change it up again and did my own silver/lavender hair!

I’ll be happy to write up a tutorial in the near future, but I’m still working out how to make the hair perfect. I’ve realized that silver is pretty finicky, and it’s not 100% where I want it to be.

But I’m always a little happier when my hair is a weird color, so I’m sharing a few shots! My friend and Indianapolis wedding photographer Anne was in town over the weekend and took a few photos for me.

For those who are interested: lipstick is MAC Candy Yum Yum. Hair color is a combination of Pravana Silver, Special Effects Deep Purple, and Blonde Brilliance lilac toning conditioner

Jessica & Jasen | Elopement at the Prairie

Elope in Texas

“This is,” Jessica told me, “an honest-to-goodness elopement. Nobody knows.”

Four people.

Jessica, Jasen, Jasen’s brother Harrell (the officiant), and myself. Those are the people who were in attendance at Jessica and Jasen’s tiny elopement in Round Top. To say I was honored would be an understatement. These two beautiful people had been planning a big wedding, but life got in the way, and their plans were scrapped. And then… they just decided to go for it. They told their folks they were going to a nice little B&B out in Round Top for a weekend getaway, and orchestrated a gorgeous little wedding on the steps of a renovated barn. A fresh strawberry-rhubarb wedding pie from Royer’s completed the day.

I could gush on and on about how much I loved this teensy wedding and being a part of this lovely couple’s amazing day, but I’ll just let some of my favorite photos do the talking. And since their parents and friends know now, I can share freely! Congratulations, you two :)
