Christen + Nathan: An Elegant Affair

A few weeks back I had the privilege of seeing the images from my good friend Christen's wedding this past September.  They. Are. Stunning.  I always get a sense of fulfillment and joy going back through photos of weddings I was fortunate enough to be a part of. And this past weekend we found out that they are going to be featured on a national wedding blog! How exciting! 

Christen is a marketing genius, an avid seamstress, and just an overall cool person. She has been a tremendous support and asset for me in terms of marketing and growing my business and has insight and knowledge that is nothing short of priceless! She designed most of the wedding herself and the majority of the fabric was hand sewn (table linens, photo booth backdrop, getting ready shirts, etc). She chose a classical elegant theme and executed that theme effortlessly and seamlessly throughout each and every design element. This was a true DIY wedding!

Every time I see the photos I think she is one of the prettiest brides I've ever seen. I am not sure if I can remember a time seeing anyone with as much of a glow as she had on her wedding day! I enjoyed being a part of it!

How neat is it to have hand sewn memorabilia from your wedding day?!


What a stunning bride!
