i had seen a wedding at Harley Farms here and was just absolutely smitten with it! not to mention my friend Brent VanAuken photographed it. this venue is incredibly charming and totally unique. i mean, who knew you could get married on a goat farm? still waiting to hear back on pricing from them, but they do include catering- a farm-fresh feast. i'll update this later on when i hear back from them!
i know its silly that i don't have all the info but i just couldn't resist sharing this one with you all.

location: Pescadero, CA
price range: (coming soon)
capactity: smaller events (coming soon)

i came across this venue after a certain lady reached out to me and asked me to find her some barn venues in north carolina. let me just say, there are so many awesome barn venues in north carolina. i wish there were that many barns in southern california, maybe i would have changed my whole game plan.
 you can have your ceremony and reception in their amazing loft or elsewhere on their gorgeous property. price includes tables, chairs, staffing to help with the event, set-up/breakdown and clean up.

location: Bermuda Run, NC
price range: $1,000-$4,000 depending on which location you choose
**this price rents whichever location for the full day. 8am-midnight!
capacity: doesn't specify, but the loft is 7,000 square feet

happy thursday!

wedding photo wednesday.

here are a few last favorites of mine

all via (tecpetaja)

ps you can check out a bunch more of our wedding photos on tec's blogpost

so the thing is, i think i can only show you so many of our wedding photos every wednesday before we both get bored.
i'm sure i'll find someway to incorporate them elsewhere every once in a while.
but i had the idea to start sharing wedding photos of other couple's weddings from around the web every wednesday.
hope you are into it:)
i'd also LOVE any submissions or suggestions of weddings to share

my basement office was definitely one of the things i was most anticipating about our new house.
i mean, i know its a basement (ha) but i think i did an okay job of making it feel cozy.
its like a secret crafting lair.
i love it and have spent bunches of time in it since i finished it over the weekend.
here it is!:

thread, ribbon, buttons- the essentials

semi-tenting around desk area

to-do list board

ps on this upcoming thursday i owe you two venues since i missed last weeks.
are there any places you all would like me to be looking specifically????
i hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

happy wednesday!!!

wintery, yarny tablescape.

i can finally share with all of you the warm, wintery tablescape i did with deb over at BridalHood since it was featured on forgetmeknotweddings last week!

we were inspired by yarn and warm tones and accents.
we used a ton of candlelight and deb has an incredible fireplace in her hood river home
so we included that as well.
our original plan was to do the shoot outside but it was rainy that day so we improvised.
check it out:

one of our DIY projects, the yarn/nail table numbers

we also wrapped bunches of bottles in yarn, you can see how that project was done here

our fancy smores: ginger snaps, dark chocolate, salted caramel, bacon maple and praline marshmellows. you know we ate them all after the shoot!! too good.

this was probably one of my favorite elements. a simple yarn installation hung in front of deb's massive window overlooking her gorgeous backyard. we simply strung one tighter piece from end to end then draped the rest over it. simple, pretty, cozy.

i hope you all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed getting together and doing it! we will be working on another upcoming project together and will be sure to share it with you along the way.

one post/tribute to the day of love!

anything this woman does, just kills me.

adorable tights from UO

wedding, children's room, just for fun, this banner is the cutest

a little gift idea

emersonmade- too good

do any of you have any valentine's day plans??
besides spending time with my husband, i am mostly looking forward to the beginning of anthropologie & weddings!!

happy monday beauties.
this week we'll be moving into our new place so posting may be spotty
but i will finally be sharing our wintery/cranberry tablescape this week! DIY projects and details galore ;-)

thursday venues, on saturday.

first, i hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. i've got some fun things planned to share with you next week! but for now, i've got a venue coming your way.

following the feature on SMP i got an email from a lovely bride who needed help finding a unique venue in Chicago that could hold the capacity of her big italian family's guest list. she is an absolute doll and i wanted to help her out, so i started doing some research and found this place:

Warehouse (Loft)

the MCA in Chicago has several gorgeous spaces to have your wedding, but this one is definitely the largest and my favorite. it is a huge space with exposed brick walls and old windows, wood floors and rustic/shabby chic elements to it. you can make it your own, which is what's so unique about it. they also have a sculpture garden for an outdoor ceremony.
i'm definitely sending this one to my new Chicago friend!
it also received the knot's best of weddings award the last 2 years.

location: Chicago, IL
price range: $5-6,000
capacity: up to 800!!!!
contact: 312.280.2660

wedding photo thursday.

so i know you've probably had enough of our wedding this week.
what with seeing it here, here and here.
but i thought i'd do a wedding photo post to highlight the flowers at our wedding because honestly, they still blow me away. hannah did a bang-up job. i think you'll agree

all via (tec petaja)

tomorrow i'll have a venue to share with you all!
ps. thank you all for the emails and inquiries you've been sending! they are greatly appreciated
