Labor Of Love

As you know, I spent my summer in sunny Lubbock, Texas. And made some of the best friends ever. One of those, Becca of Becca Lea Photography, asked me if I would create a bouquet for one of her bridal clients’ shoots. I was three weeks from my due date and told her that “Sure, I don’t plan on being in labor that day!” Well, Tuesday rolled around and I rounded up all the flowers for the shoot the next day, and what do you know, I started having contraction pains at 1:00am. I wasn’t sure if they were real labor pains or not but they were coming every 10 minutes so I thought, “Dang, I better get this bouquet done just in case!” Turns out, doing a bouquet while in labor makes the time pass quite fast, and I was done with it by about 4:30am. I then took a shower, got ready, and drove to the hospital! By this time the contractions were coming every 3-5 minutes and the nurse said that I was indeed having a baby that day. I called up my dear friend Andressa and had her coordinate the pick up of the bouquet from my place…. and here you have it! My labor of love bouquet! Thank you to Becca for the STUNNING pics.

This last summer while pregnant with Kai, my husband’s company decided to send him out on a project…… to Lubbock, Texas. Yes, it was hot. Yes, my ankles became kankles. And yes, I had the time of my life. I LOVED it down there. I also magically became friends with some very talented wedding ladies, namely Allie and Andie (amazing wedding designer and planner wrapped into one), Becca Lea (amazing film photographer) and Savannah King (hair and makeup extraordinaire). So…. being wedding people we did what we love to do and put a shoot together! It was featured on Grey Likes Weddings here. Love my Texas Gals.

Baby

  He came! His name is Kai Lyle Rovig and we love him to pieces.

Lemon Love

This photoshoot with Shannon of FotoNovella makes my heart swoon…. it is full of light, a sunny disposition, and a sweet freshness. Since I moved to Oregon I wanted to team up with some of the best local photographers and met Shannon, a kindred spirit. She is funny, incredibly resourceful, and amazingly talented! And the couple, SWEETEST couple ever! They have been dating since high school and were so in love…. it was so fun to watch them. The stunning dress is by Maggie Sottero from Amy’s Bridal in Kennewick, Washington (she has the best couture selection!) The amazing hair and makeup was done by Marisela Rubio in Hermiston, Oregon. The bouquet contained tree peonies, fuschia, lemons, and garden roses and was then wrapped in ripped silk ribbons and  the centerpiece contained tree peonies, fuschia, lemons, and peaches. So sweet- Enjoy!!!

Corsages

Last year for Kelly Packer’s wedding I decided that I hated the way traditional corsages looked, and I proceeded to put a garden rose on a gold cuff bracelet for her mother and mother in law.  The effect it had was huge! It look completely updated and fresh. This year I am doing something even newer(or should I say older). I have decided to go back to floral roots and tie them on with a silk ribbon, a la’ 18th century! Excited to use these for my gorgeous June bride in Tri-Cities, Washington.
