Welcome!

Hey friends! Welcome to the brand spankin’ new Tasteful Tatters blog & website! Eek! We are so excited to share this little corner of the interwebs with you all. If you haven’t checked out the main site yet – you should definitely peruse around. We have updated our services (to offer more for our brides!), have bios for the entire team, and incredible reviews from our favorite people ever – our brides! I sort of feel like I have been re-decorating my living room since January and today is the first day I’m inviting friends over. Do you know the feeling? It has been such a labor of love and I am so proud, nervous, excited… all the feels.

First and foremost, I want to acknowledge the incredible team we hired to help us achieve the vision. Crystal of Heirloom Design House was contracted to sketch a custom floral arrangement for the logo (which I’m completely obsessed with, and kinda want it tattooed on me… like, for real), Shannon LaBare created our main logo – Shannon also created our first logo which we had about for 5 years! She just gets me and what’s in my head. A huge thanks to Kat at The Papermint Press for creating the most beautiful letterpress + silver foil biz cards in all the land! Seriously, they are my fav. And finally, the incredible Lindsay of Hello Monday designed and coded the entire site + blog. She makes everything so incredibly easy to understand and for sure would not have my sanity after all of this without her. These ladies slayed it and I’m giddy with how perfectly everything turned out. Thank you again!!

Like I said before, we’ve had the same brand+logo for quite some time. I loved it. 5 years ago I felt like it was so fun and perfect for my new business. Then, it was just so recognizable. I even had people tell me when they saw watercolor they thought of Tasteful Tatters. But as I’ve grown and my business has evolved and grown, I felt like we needed an update. Something that was a little more clean and sophisticated. Because that’s who we are. And I feel like we achieved just that. Easy to navigate. No hidden info. This is what we do & this is who we are. Just a little grown up =)

We’ll be posting a couple of times a week, so come back often for loads of wedding advice & inspiration.

Real Wedding: Jill & Joe

I’m so excited to share with you my first post of 2015! You may remember from last year – I posted that I not only wanted to share photos and details from my past brides, but I also wanted to simply share their love stories. I have an incredible opportunity to be surrounded by so much love in what I do and I wanted to share that positivity in my blog and social media outlets. So today is all about Jill & Joe and their adorable love story and their epic wedding last Fall.

Jill was maybe hands down one of my easiest brides last year. And Joe was hands down the coolest groom ever. I seriously was always laughing with these two! Jill was SO laid back about everything and Joe just wanted his good ol’ southern bbq and a family style atmosphere. Those were his only requests. I seriously LOVED working with them! And what I loved even more was their adorable love story. I feel like Jill and I were a bit alike. We were planners. We were organized. And we took charge of things. So when she was planning a special trip for the two of them, the whole thing being her idea and all – she never would have guessed that the whole trip was actually part of Joe’s proposal… I’ll let you hear it from the bride herself =)

Joe and I met 6 years ago at a mutual friends house party. One of my best friends Chris introduced us… and he was hoping to play matchmaker… I wasn’t really looking for a relationship. Fast forward a couple months… and a group of us all go out to dinner for Chris’s birthday… and Joe and I started talking and we just clicked. On our first official date he asked me if I wanted to go out for shots after work before I was leaving on a family vacation…
