Stephanie Nikolopoulos interviewed me for an article she was writing for the style website, Emerging Thoughts. Check out her article here (my quote is toward the end). She also asked if I could come up with a board that reflected the style of Emerging Thoughts, “an online boutique filled with unique and one of a kind pieces” that seeks to “promote free thinking and creativity.” What do I think a board based on the style of Emerging Thoughts would look like? I think it would look like the couple are putting together a party that expresses who they are without worrying too much about fitting anyone else’s expectation of what a wedding should be. It would be unique because the couple is unique, not because they’re trying too hard to do something that’s never been done. And hopefully it would incorporate the creative talents of not only the couple, but also of important people in their life.

Mood: bright, unfussy, personal

    I’ve always had a heart for barns. My great-grandfather built his own.It still stands but just barely! The interior of this barn takes my breath away!

    I really love the feel of this board. This is exactly what I have tried to go for; something natural, unique, and not overdone. (Hopefully I will be able to accomplish it).
