The WeddingLovely Blog (and WeddingLovely, for that matter), haven’t been around for even a year and yet things have been simply amazing. I’m so thankful that I’m working the job I love! To wrap up the year, here are some of my most favorite posts from the year (and this is really tough, because I love them all):

Aerialist Press Studio Tour

I may be a bit biased since Alexandra and Craig (of Aerialist Press) printed the WeddingLovely holiday cards, but their studio/live/workspace was one of the most inspiring studios I’ve ever been in. Huge windows, soft filtered light, letterpress, and amazing art. Love it.

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer: Ella Photography

Get to Know a Wedding Photographer: Ella Photography

A relatively new series, our photographer interviews have definitely shot to the top of my favorites list, especially this great interview of Isabella of Ella Photography. Beautiful images, great stories (lip-syncing grooms!), and great advice to other photographers.

Amanda from baci designer stationery + events is so sweet, and a fantastic designer to boot. I love her invitation design featured here, especially the rustic cord ties and and delicate seeded paper.

Portland Stationery + Design Meetup Photos

Up in Portland for a conference, I got to meet with the amazing stationery ladies of Portland over wine and appetizers and had such a wonderful time. These photos are filled with wonderful nostalgia for me, thanks again to everyone for coming out!

That’s not all (told you I had a hard time picking) — stay tuned for pt.2 of my favorite posts of the year soon!
