A handful of beautiful blooms, handwritten notes and pretty parties… These are just a few of the lovely details that keep me going every day. As a blogger, graphic designer and lover of entertaining and stylish soirees, I'm so blessed to be doing what I love day in and day out at SMP.

I live on the coast just North of Boston with my handsome fiancé and our two sweet pets. When I'm not coordinating pretty features for SMP, you can find me designing or writing for my personal blog, Yours Truly, shooting a glittery pink cocktail or obsessing over gorgeous calligraphy.

Aside from working by day and blogging by night (and planning my own wedding!), you might catch me enjoying a margarita at my favorite Mexican restaurant, fishing on our boat during the summer months or walking our pup on the local beach.

I can't say enough how thankful I am to be doing what I love. Working with some of the most talented vendors and bloggers I've ever met is an honor and I can't wait to keep curating the pretty for you!

Snowy Winter Central Park Vow Renewal

Call me crazy, but I am itching to see those first few snowflakes drop from the sky. The cold, weightless flutter of fluffy little ice crystals makes time feel as if it's standing still and all is at peace. It's kind of the perfect setting for a vow renewal if you think about it. That's exactly what this lovely little family (how cute are they?!) did, all bundled up in Central Park on a wintry day. Archetype Studio tagged along and...

San Francisco Engagement Session With A View

I love when couples include their furry friends for an e-sesh. It's something that I wish we could have done for ours, but alas, our beach didn't allow pups. So I will live vicariously through these two cuties and their happy black lab today. All three pranced around the hills of San Francisco with Mirelle Carmichael and the resulting gallery is...

Glamorous Pink Khorassan Ballroom Wedding

Some of the best moments are the unexpected, don't you think? The un-planned, un-fussed-over, perfectly imperfect moments. Case in point? This sweet Groom had to change his proposal plan direction because his lovely Bride had plans to surprise him with an anniversary weekend away. Basically, they love each other to bits and are the cutest duo ever. And their wedding from Shelli Alred and ...
