Last week we were in Ohio, where we spent some quality time with family and also helped to coordinate our #bffl's wedding.  What a week it was! Throughout the week we had time for some reading,  we sent off some chic, handwritten 'day of' materials, spent a couple late nights finishing details for said bffl's wedding and then partied the night away after a day of love, laughter and celebration for my dear friend - don't worry there will be a post detailing their day soon...

For now, enjoy these snippets from our week in Ohio!

1) #GIRLBOSS - I picked this book up prior to departing Boston and it finally broke the spell!  The one where I hadn't read a book cover-to-cover in over a year (eek!) and what a book to get over the slump.  This one really made me think and evaluate my business and how I am spending my time.  Whether it was reading about the way Sophia approaches running Nasty Gal or just getting the full picture of how she became a bad*ss #girlboss, it was just the reboot I needed to maintain focus on Yennygrams.  Amoruso's attitude alone kept me all eyes and ears while reading and definitely makes me want to BE THE BOSS!

2) These table numbers for Sarah + Ben's Cambridge, Mass. wedding charm with their handwritten letters and calligraphed lettering.  The mix of classic black and white with a metallic gold tied in their wedding style and also added a chic, yet classic touch to their decor.

3) As we brainstormed for chalkboard menu ideas for Justin and Lindsey's wedding, we came across the idea to use a gold charger (fit into the overall color scheme) and the hand-painted, brush script fit in with the rustic and handmade feeling that went with the rest of the wedding decor.  We made two of these to stand at the ends of the buffet table as guests grabbed their plates.  Can't get over how awesome the chargers looked on display.

4) This entryway for Lindsey and Justin's outdoor ceremony was a Yenny family effort.  The arbor frame was built by hand with a pre-made pieces of oak.  We then used old doors found from a friend's farmhouse that they renovated - painting everything a milk white and white stain. Finally, using homemade wreaths made by Yenny's mom, we hung these on the doors and draped tulle around the doors and arbor. The wreaths were decked with navy and coral pink tulle and white ribbon with bunches of baby's breath woven through the vines.  Top the scene with a flowing floral chalkboard welcome sign and you can imagine that guests were greeted with beauty, love and warmth prior to the vows.
