Amy and Chris's Portland Reception sneak peek

I had the extreme pleasure to design a quaint little reception for my brother in law Chris and his new bride Amy. Chris planned the most fabulous dinner at Portland City Grill, where he is also the sous chef. I traveled from Georgia to Oregon so I couldn't bring much with me. I brought the card holders and the bud vases of course. The florist in the building , Geranium Lake, had a wonderful selection of flowers and I was also able to rent the adorable tarnished silver vases!!! The flowers on the west coast are amazing and I had the best time with the centerpieces. These are just a few snapshots before the festivities. The professional pictures will be posted in about 3 weeks. The bud vases and heart place card holders are available in out Etsy store.

Here are a few more pictures of the studio.

Peek Inside The Funky Shack Art Studio

I often get asked "What exactly to you do?" and when I say "We specialize in handcrafted wedding decor and wedding design" I get a lot of "hmm"'s. It is hard to visualize exactly what we do without seeing our pieces or our inventory. So, here is a little bit of the studio. I am the marketing department, the office manager, and the packing department. Jennifer is the artist and creates everything wire that goes out the door which is an unbelievable task. We work together on wedding design, rentals and new product ideas. We have a carpenter, aka Dad, who makes all of our chalkboards and custom frames and Jennifer's husband makes wood centerpieces and farm tables. There is never a boring moment especially right now as the wedding season is in high gear!!! Thanks for visiting!

Intimate Reception on the Lake

We had a wonderful time hosting and designing an intimate wedding reception for out sister Tami. She and Ron got married in a private ceremony in December and then waited for the beautiful spring weather to celebrate their marriage. It was a gorgeous intimate gathering of friends and family. Small bud vases hanging with crystals, wooden elegant centerpieces, rustic chalkboards and lots of flowers added the perfect touch of romance. We were lucky to have Hillary with Fearless Photography come all the way out to the middle on nowhere Alabama to capture the memories for us!!
