aimee's hawaiian wedding.

Posted on October 05, 2012 by mckay | 0 Comments

I so love the brides that I'm lucky enough to work with.  it's such a pleasure to create one of a kind bags for their wedding day and then when I get an email from them letting me know they had the BEST wedding and want to share photos I'm ecstatic.  I'm not going to lie- I love when they send me pictures of my bags in action but I love it even more when I get to see the rest of the day. you know - the photos of their first look, dancing with their dad, laughing with their friends, hugging family - I love seeing the love and joy on their faces that only a wedding can bring.  it brings me back to my own wedding, which was the best day of my life (besides the day beckett was born). 
aimee was sweet enough to send me a few images that she had taken with the bags I made her and her bridal party. don't they all look beautiful? 
she is one of those brides who shared a few extra photos from the wedding and I'm so glad she did. please take a look at her photographers website and check out the joy and happiness that radiate from her smile. gorgeous! I'm so happy for you aimee and I hope married life is treating you wonderfully.

ps- I am in love with your glitter manicure!! taking the photo next time I go to get my nails done. :)

clutches in action!

So fun opening my email today! One of the brides I worked with to design her bridesmaid clutches sent me a few photos of them in action from her wedding day this past weekend. I love it!!!
The peach and cobalt blue look so good together and seriously, how cute are her bridesmaids??? I digress...


This is actually a great segue for me to announce that I will be starting a 'real wedding' feature on the blog. Some of the girls that have bought clutches from my shop have been kind enough to send me some thoughts and photos from their big day to share with you all. Yay!

Seriously, I feel so blessed to be working with such amazing ladies. Starting this endeavor I had no idea just how fulfilling it would be for me. I truly enjoy every moment I spend (well, besides one super late night) working with each of the girls. I'm honored that they would choose me to work with and thrilled every time one of them has emailed me after receiving their bags to tell me they are better than expected. :)

Maybe this sounds cheesy but I have honestly (finally) found something I am passionate about. Took me over 31 years to do it, but man, it's a great feeling. Alright...enough of that. :)

Next week I'm excited to feature Sara's real wedding. She was the first recipient of an Oatmeal Lace Design bag. I would post it over the weekend for you lovely readers, but I'll be camping and enjoying live music at Blackwater. So excited!!!!!
