They got married at The Transept across from Washington Park where the sun catches the light on the stained glass windows as the sun goes down. It was the perfect time for lighting candles + an intimate, cozy ceremony gathered by friends + family.

REAL WEDDING: Blake + Tyler, Crossroads Uptown, Cincinnati, Ohio

Blake and Tyler had the most beautiful, unique wedding filled with so many classic details, family and friends in Cincinnati this fall. Their day was captured by Hannah from Hearts + Color Co.  and their wedding party is probably one of the largest we have ever designed for-28 people! Their wedding palette was the perfect blend of moody and mauvey with deep navy. burnished gold and brass accents and bridesmaids each wearing a mix of jewel tones. Natural greenery accented the space and friends and family gathered under the stars after the ceremony in the church courtyard.

Lonely Bouquet Day

On one bright, sunshiney Sunday morning I teamed up with some lady bosses in our community to spread a little love. I think people sometimes forget that a simple gesture of kindness can go a long way and participating in the Lonely Bouquet movement was just what the doctor ordered. Genesis came along as I filled up a basket of bouquets and walked around our neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine and passed out bouquets. We gave some to police officers, left them on bus stops, even outside of Holtman's donuts (I obviously splurged on a bacon caramel cake donut-can you really resist something like that?) and we peeked around the corner to see the smiles on people's faces as they surprisingly picked them up to take them home. It was such a sweet gift to hand out those smiles and I hope we continue the tradition in our city for years to come. Check out photos from our day below! Enjoy!

These were placed right outside of Cincinnati's new streetcar stop. Genesis messaged me later on to tell me that she saw a girl pick it up and looked around as if someone left it there by mistake! I think gift-giving might be my love language!
