J+C Wedding Day Details

On Thursday Chelsea and I will celebrate two months being married, so I thought I would reflect on all of our wedding details this week! Today I’ll be sharing all the special details of our wedding day. Tomorrow I’ll share some photos of all the wedding day events, and then I’ll wrap up the week with a couple posts about our reception day.


Our ceremony and reception happened on different days. Our ceremony was a small, immediate family affair at Chelsea’s parents’ house and our reception was a brunch gathering of all of our favorite people at an event space in Seattle. Continue reading

Kamp Kappa Delta 2019

This weekend, I hosted another Kamp Kappa Delta with my sorority advisor sisters. We host this retreat as an opportunity to get to know the newly elected chapter officers and help prepare them for their term. I always look forward to this weekend because we are fully immersed in our sisterhood for 24 hours, and it is truly a time to bond and learn.

Ringing in 2019

With just a few days to prep for NYE, I enjoy checking out shops in person to see what they have in stock for the celebration. This year I love what I found at Crate and Barrel. Their NYE collection is a collaboration with Layer Cake and it is perfection! I love the color scheme – a mix of pink, mauve, gold, and grey. I also love that it’s not specific to New Year’s, so I can use it for other celebrations throughout the year.

Dressed in Holiday Style Party: Flower Arranging

Last weekend, I hosted the annual Christmas Party for my sorority sisters! I went with a line from the song “Silver Bells” for my theme, “Dressed in Holiday Style.” Yesterday, I shared all the decor details (see those here), and today I’m sharing all about our party activity – making flower arrangements!

Friday Favorites: Fa La La La La!

Happy Fa La La Friday! This week, I’ve been a busy little elf getting our house decorated for Christmas!! After our house was taken over by wedding decorations for the last several months, I was feeling sort of Grinch-y about re-cluttering our space, but Christmas only comes once per year, right?! I did downsize our decorations a bit this year and limited the decor to the front porch, our tree, mantle, kitchen table, and nativity.

Welcome to my holiday house tour, all of my favorite things this week! If you want to see a video tour – check out my Instagram story here!

I went classic this year with lots of plaid, red, and green, and I’m loving it!

Turn a wedding invitation into a creative gift!

It’s been two weeks since our wedding, and I’m still on a wedding high reflecting on all the details and feeling so much love from our friends and family. Read about some of our wedding details here. We received so many wonderful gifts in celebration of our big day, and one of my favorites was our wedding invitation turned into an ornament. It is such a treasured keepsake and something I know we’ll enjoy each holiday season.
