I'm BACK! That's right, I'm back on the blog and ready to make blogging a commitment! There is honestly so much growth and change in my business that I am blown away, but I don't want to lose sight of the thing that got me started: blogging. So every week, I'll be sharing my recent wedding work AND my heart so that you can get to know the woman behind the business. And that woman is me, Chloe!
So what's new with me, personally? Well, my life is usually a blur of paper, watercolor paints, and ribbon, but this month is a bit different. My dear friend, Lindsey, who owns Annalise Bridal Boutique, asked if I was able to help her run the store a little since she just had her baby girl last month!! I’ve known Lindsey since before the store was open and with my experience of working as a consultant for Tiffany’s Bridal, I was totally willing to help!
Now, for English Tea Paperie, May was absolutely crazy, and June is no different! Some truly amazing ETP brides got married last month, and I'm so glad they all had great photographers to capture all the paper goodness!

I loved Rudy & Rebecca so much that when their wedding planner, Taylor Batt, asked if I wanted to help with the wedding day at Boar's Head Inn as one of her assistants, I jumped on it! After working with the couple to create their save the dates, invitations, day of signage and thank you cards, it was really awesome to see everything on the big day! Plus, I was able to complete the massive map seating chart myself -- it was eight feet wide! I loved getting to see the wedding world from a whole new angle . . . I think it makes me better at what I do!
I also got to design some soft, natural goodness for Hope Taylor's wedding and senior photography workshop in Fredericksburg, VA! I loved collaborating with Hope and Caroline to create something for the attendees to shoot!

Last, but not least, I have LOVED working with Caroline at POSH PR® on some graphics and illustrations. I got to create a full page ad for Virginia Living, the magazine that features Caroline as the best event planner in Virginia! I also get to create custom illustrations for the monthly POSH PR® recap newsletter!
