Creative Weddings


My niece, Cionne, was married on 6/27, under a beautiful hand built outdoor huppa in Chicago. Before I get all sentimental and philosophical, here’s a few pics of our family enjoying Chi town and the reception:

So today, Kelly and James dropped by to pick up the gifts ordered from their bridal registry. Here is the set they now own- 10 place settings of my Beach Cottage:

They shared some lovely pics from their wedding, with chic creative flourishes, all handmade, or purchased on Etsy. I am loving this trend towards creative weddings!


I loved James’ pinwheel buttonniere, purchased from rule42.  And look at the adorable handmade flower girl tutus!

I love how individual style is the rule these days. I wish both couples all the happiness that their hearts can hold. It’s such an honor to be a part of someone’s wedding- as a guest, and as the maker of their dinnerware, too!


  1. much happiness to them - how joy-filled each meal will be using those gorgeous plates... the pictures are wonderful... and your work is always quite stunning...

  2. What a lovely day! Love all of the handmade, but especially the buttonniere!

  3. What a fabulous story! Love all the handmade goods for the weddings. Your Beach Cottage dishware is just gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing this with us. :)
