As soon as my sister Lindsay began planning her wedding, I knew I had to link her up with our fabulous friend Renee who creates the most wonderful wedding invitations!  Together they came up with these amazing “honey bee” themed invitations that perfectly communicate to guests the simple elegant mood of the event. A whisper of glamour is in the details with a shimmering charcoal gray envelope and fine silver cording that ties the buzzing bee to the graceful yellow flower. Gorgeous!

Our most fabulous friend Renee was asked to write a guest blog spot at Craft for Health. We thought it was such a great read that it deserved to be posted anywhere and everywhere! Our favorite part was the paragraph…

“Each one of us has a unique creative point of view, a gift that should never be ignored.  If you haven’t found your voice quite yet, my advice is set out on your creative expedition and keep searching until you find something you love to do, make, mold, design, cook, plant, paint, sew, knit or build – you never know when something beautiful will unfold.”

We felt that this statement was close to our hearts because this was the mantra that prodded us to start Emplume! We were sure that we loved it and if you can turn something that gives you so much joy and satisfaction into your job as well, how lucky are you? We ask ourselves every day that same question!  That said – thanks to all of our brides, fans and friends who love and appreciate Emplume as much as we do!

Best! xo ~ Shannon

This is a fabulous story about a wedding featuring ‘green’ wedding shoes! I don’t mean green as in Eco-friendly (although we are planning a large story on that – stay tuned!) but the actual color green! And we thought they looked just fabulous!  What a gorgeous and funky idea! We especially like the feathered birdcage veil!

Special thanks to Musings by Renee Rodriguez for the beautiful blog post – and thanks to the bride and groom, Ashley and Justin – best wishes to you and hats off for the great color selection!  All photography by Forever Photography – gorgeous!

Green Wedding Shoes

green wedding shoes

On September 1st, my niece Ashley and the love of her life Justin were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Laguna Gloria in Austin, Texas.  The 1916 Mediterranean Villa was the backdrop to an enchanted garden where family, friends and the occasional peacock gathered to share in this very special occasion.

I loved the simple elegance of their color palette – black and white, with a splash of emerald green. The bride’s graceful satin gown and birdcage veil gave a nod to a time gone by, and every now and again you would catch a glimpse of her divine green wedding shoes peaking out from underneath her gown.  Each and every detail was delightful, from the cute cake topper,  to the wacky rickshaw that whisked the bride and groom away at the end of their glorious evening.
