I teamed up with one of my favorite artists and dearest friends, Megan Walsh, to create this Styled Bridal Brunch. Megan and her husband Todd are the owners of Atomic Furnishing & Design. They both work really hard to restore, upholster, and refinish mid-century furniture to it's original beauty. They are passionate about design and everything they touch turns to magic.
When Megan told me they were expanding their shop and making it available for brides to rent out on their wedding day as a space to get ready or enjoy a bridal brunch, I knew it would be stunning. It's more than just a room to rent out. It is an intentionally designed space with beautiful natural light and gorgeous mid-century furniture.
We set up 3 different styles for this shoot: Natural, Bohemian, and Modern. Today, I'm sharing the Natural - a neutral and modern palate with earth tones, natural materials and simplistic design. If you are an Asheville bride looking for a beautiful space to get ready on your wedding day, look no further! We've created packages that include everything from flowers, to hair and make-up, down to the coffee & food. Email email@example.com for more info.
I bought this domain 13 months ago. Maybe sooner. Probably closer to the date I met Mister Forêt rather than the date we actually wed. Coincidentally, those dates are only 5 months apart so we'll just say sometime in 2014. Buying and owning christinaforet.com was my top priority after falling in love. We live in an interesting age.
The past 13 months have been everything I never knew how to dream of. We spent our first 3 months of marriage traveling from Nepal to Hawaii to California and getting some rest in the middle of nowhere Missouri- one of our wedding gifts was an amazing honeymoon home in Marthasville, MO. We moved into our first home together in January of 2015 and we are still moving in. We have books in the office stacked against the wall 2.5 ft tall- we discovered the perfect height of a book tower that doubles as a mail holder. Life is never quite as tidy and put together as instagram would like it to be. When it almost is, we start another messy project and and then other before that one is cleaned up.
I was away more often than I was home this year. Traveling is a luxury and I am thankful. But, home is also a luxury. Community is a luxury. So, here we are in Asheville, North Carolina. Writing, photographing, loving and learning. Always learning. This space is where I will document our days, give thanks, share ideas and most importantly where my dreams come to life.
