All The Lovely Details

September 26th, 2013

  I met Katherine in kindergarten, oh so many years ago.  It was an easy connection- we had the same first name (as you can see) and the rest is history!  We spent our kindergarten year carpooling and spending afternoons at her Grandma’s house, and we’ve stayed friends for the last however-many-years-its-been through school, college, […]

I met Katherine in kindergarten, oh so many years ago.  It was an easy connection- we had the same first name (as you can see) and the rest is history!  We spent our kindergarten year carpooling and spending afternoons at her Grandma’s house, and we’ve stayed friends for the last however-many-years-its-been through school, college, boyfriends, living in different countries and everything else life threw at us.  And now she’s MARRIED!!!

I had the joy of being a bridesmaid on her big day that she had dreamed and planned (oh my goodness can that girl plan!) and crafted for over the past year (the wedding was full of adorable DIY projects! check our her blog www.allthelovelydetails.wordpress.com).  Her wedding was gorgeous and perfect, and it was so adorable watching her smile get bigger and bigger all day long.

Her dress was a gorgeous tulle and lace dream with real buttons all the way up the back.  But, being that this was an outdoor reception in Virginia in the middle of July, she wanted something a little lighter to put on towards the end of the reception for some dancing and fun times.  So, one morning while walking down the street in NYC I got a text from my lovely friend asking for some help with a dress, and thus started a journey of planning and sketching and fabric shopping and SEWING!  I’m so excited I finally get to share some pictures of my latest project, along with memories of a dear friend!

P.S.  All of the photo credit goes to the lovely Katelyn James of www.katelynjames.com!

**Ooh I love exciting updates!! So the day after I wrote this post, Katherine announced she’s launching her own event planning business, which I think she will be perfect at!  It’s called Dear Sweetheart Events, and the website is a must-see!  Go take a peek for yourself at DearSweetheartEvents.com (and by the way, she’s not posting to allthelovelydetails anymore, if you want to view her work, it’s all at Dear Sweetheart Events!)
