Hello Friends! I am thrilled to be sharing some of this beautiful botanical styled wedding that was put on by some amazing creatives here in Atlanta. The space was beautifully curated with organic designs and lots of beautiful white space. Cue an Amanda happy dance! Natural white spaces are my jam!
This space was full of simple details. The simple beautiful details, the imperfect ones, are my favorite. The imperfections carry a weight of history and time, I love that. The exposed hardwood floor and white walls were the perfect space to celebrate this beautiful day.
These two brides are beaming in every image, yet they invoke such a feeling of calm and grace. I love that about them. Their beauty radiated throughout this whole space. #BrideGoals I don’t think there is really anything I can say to explain how much I loved the design and feel of this day.
As creatives I think it’s important to spend a little time in a design process and trying new things. It’s in those times that we explore where the most beautiful things are created. I think this stylized wedding IS one of those times.
P.S. – You can’t get any better than a board full of beautiful neutrals.
These gold silverware sets are my new favorite thing!
This tablescape is one of my favorite to date! I love all the white and natural elements here. It feels so peaceful.
But these two beauties really stole the show. Their grace and natural beauty really shines through in these images.
I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity to work with such wonderful creatives who helped make this DREAM day possible!

Writing a post talking about my contentment issues was hard. It’s never easy to admit when your heart is not in the right place. But after going through so many seasons of frustration with myself I’m glad to be sharing this journey with you all. I think there is great value in being open with where you are.
I think some of you may struggle more with contentment of ‘things’. If so I think many of Nancy Ray‘s guidelines below will be helpful for you! If you’re like me and have discontentment with what I like to call your ‘Work = Worth’ problem, I have things added in for you too!
I do think there is value in getting rid of physical clutter and addictions to material things when trying to clear your mind and be in a more content state, so I’m sticking with Nancy’s guidelines as well. However, I’ve added in a few more guidelines to personalize this for the things I struggle with most.
Here are the Guidelines:
Each month will have a theme with different thought prompts and an activity you will be challenged to participate in. I’ll be sure to post these on the 1st of October, November, and December. Posts of my struggles and encouragement will be sprinkled in along the way!
Share your journey using the hashtag #contentmentchallenge ! Feel free to share both your victories and struggles along the way.
I hope you’ll join me! More soon on preparing before the #contentmentchallenge !
Meeting and collaborating with my fellow Athens creatives is one of my favorite things to do. There is such an incredible amount of talent and creativity in this town. I feel lucky to know and witness these artists in action. Not only is this one talented town, but the creatives here are supportive and uplifting to each other. I’m grateful to have started my business here in Athens. Anyone who lives or has been to Athens, GA knows what I mean!
So when the fashion and lifestyle blogger Molly (a.k.a. Miss Molly Moon) was looking to have a few photos taken of her and her hubby for her blog, I was all about it! Plus, these two are beyond cute…how could I say no!
Check out Molly’s blog to see her amazing fashion sense and some of my photos. 😉
