I sat down to write this post a few weeks ago, this post was the outcome which had absolutely nothing to do about the Heirloom family gathering. Somehow I forgot that I was supposed to write about Heirloom…and just remembered a few days ago that I never shared this event properly. So here we go! Hannah and her husband reached out to me to help them plan and design this event, I had a lot on my plate the month of July, but this was something I couldn’t pass up. I love Heirloom mag– I love their message, I love their style so it was something I was going to find the time for. It was possibly my favorite thing to plan ever too…I basically just asked all of my favorite Houston wedding vendors to make this thing happen. I even weaseled my way out of doing the flowers because I have been wanting to work with Blush and Vine forever and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I got Rent the Foundry on board to do the furniture- I wanted like 3 vignettes so this was no small task, but they were game. So the deal with Rent the Foundry is that they are a brand new business here in Houston and they are KILLING it. They are basically starting the business that I have needed in my life for the past four years. Paige with Awake Photography has a love for all things vintage and after hearing me complain that there are no good mid century rental places in Houston at a number of shoots, she decided to jump on it. So I know they are still working on photographing all of their inventory and getting it up on their website, but seriously if you are in need of some beautiful and unique things for your wedding they either have it or will source it for you.
I asked The Weekend Type to create a welcome sign for us and Korie of course made it more special than I would have imagined.
We held this shin dig at The Studio above Tout Suite. I love everything about this place- the look, the feel, the food is fantastic, and PRETTY to boot! BUT be forewarned that they are hard to get a hold of and deal with. That was just my personal experience, but I have heard this to be true from others as well. I think it was literally the day before the event and I was still waiting to hear back from the right manager to confirm all the details. Yeah…I was a little sweaty that day.
I am completely terrible at attending events like this, so the fact that I planned it was a great avenue in actually getting me to attend. It made me want to go to things like this much much more. It’s always strange being in my little work at home bubble…it’s really fantastic to be around other people that are in that same bubble. They get that working from home is fantastic, difficult, overwhelming, lonely, and wonderful all at the same time. It’s also not every day that I get to chat with a room full of gals who work in the wedding industry, so that was also a complete treat. GET OUT MORE JENNIFER.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in putting this event together and making it SO so lovely. So much love to all of you!
