Erin's Wedding: 7.8.17

Stacey Stephens

My baby sis got married to the very best guy on a beautiful, blue sky day in July. It was perfect in every way and-- I don't say this lightly --the most fun wedding I've ever been to. Hope you enjoy a bit of Katelyn Vines' amazing photography below!

It was so special designing her invitations, programs and welcome bag goodies. My mom and I had the best time planning for out of town friends. I loved the chance to show off Atlanta to those that don't call it home! 

A few favorites: 

Erin's vendor team was a serious dream team. It was SO fun to work with friends and fellow vendors that I've gotten to know in the wedding world in Atlanta.

A 60th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

Stacey Stephens

My grandparents, Barbara and Gerry Rosenlund, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in February. To celebrate, they invited our family to spend a weekend at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. They went all out: a black tie dinner was planned in the Champagne Cellar, complete with a wedding cake and toasts from family. 

I had the honor of creating invitations for the event, and had so much fun working in secret with my grandmother, MorMor, to surprise everyone else. I brought the materials for the place cards, and she wrote each one by hand that weekend. 

They weren't the only ones with a few surprises, though. My cousins and I put our heads together and thought about how to best remember the evening. We landed on photography - capturing these memories forever - and knew we had to get our life-long friend, might-as-well-be-family Jodi Grandholm Bodtke involved. Jodi, the mastermind behind Giving Tree Photography, was the photographer at our own wedding, and we knew it would mean so much to MorMor and FarFar to have her there to capture the evening. 

She flew in from Chicago and surprised the group at breakfast on Saturday morning. Her photos, below, speak for themselves:

It was a weekend that we'll cherish forever, celebrating a love that has truly lasted a lifetime.

Signature Cocktails - Part 1

Stacey Stephens

It's perfect porch weather, and that means that party season is right around the corner. Instead of waiting for someone else to flip open the calendar, circle a date, and get a plan in motion, my challenge for you is to plan something special for the month of May

Truth be told, I think a lot of us get intimidated by the idea of hosting:

"does my house have to be perfect? does my house to be clean? do I have to be perfect?! I can't host people... I wouldn't know where to start."

Simple answer: definitely not. People appreciate you because you're you - messy bedroom and dry shampooed hair included. Let's work this month to redefine the idea of "hosting a party" and let's make it less about fancy and more about fun. Don't get me wrong - a full-on day party with invitations, florals and decorations is totally up my alley but we can't forget about the gatherings that are last minute, thrown together by the people you love. 

To help get you started, I've gathered a few of my favorite #girlboss friends and have asked them for their favorite SIMPLE cocktail recipes. Perfect for porch swingin' and warm spring nights, choose one below, call your 6 favorite friends, and pick the date. I promise you'll have a ball.

xo!

Carter Margarita

2. One part or 2 ounces of Cointreau or another orange-based liquor, like Triple Sec.
