Christina Foret, co-founder of Ashevillefolk and super talented wedding photographer, and I met this past December to discuss future collaborations. Part of the reason we expanded was so that we could have more space to work with other creative individuals. My background is in Interior Design and as much as I love working with furniture I really wanted to dabble back into styling and designing this year. So after much conversation, Christina and I decided to join together and create a "Bridal Brunch" package for brides to be. Asheville has so many beautiful outdoor wedding locations but not a lot of places to get ready for the big day in style. This is where we come in :)
Todd and I obviously love mid century furniture but I wanted to show our customers that we enjoy working with other mediums as well. We will be offering three different styles to choose from : Natural, Bohemian, & Modern. We also offer custom packages if you want yours to be extra unique! Christina Foret has been a sought after photographer in Hawaii for the past few years and she is looking forward to working with some Asheville brides this season. We also have an amazing team at our disposal that will help make the morning of your wedding extra special (the vendors we collaborate with are listed below).
This blog is featuring the "Natural" style - a neutral and modern palate with earth tones, natural materials, and simplistic design. (the bohemian and modern are coming soon).
