A French FĂȘte

Wow, have we been busy the last few weeks! We are so blessed to have so much excitement surrounding our launch and we are filled with joy with the positive feedback that Recollection has received! Thank you to all of our early fans and future fans! A few weeks ago we were asked to provide decor for Covington Home Builder's "Building Together" event. Several other businesses also participated as sponsors, and it was a great opportunity to meet a lot of great people! As a nod to The Covington's love for French style, we created lounge seating, table arrangements and decor with a "Rustic French Flair" Check it out: {images courtesy of Love Lee Photography}

A Soldier and His Beautiful Bride

Recollection was honored to be a part of Kimberley and Danny's touching engagement photo shoot. Danny is currently serving in the military and will be deployed to Iraq in the next few weeks. His sweetheart, Kimberly will patiently await his return home in anticipation of their wedding celebration next year. Rachel Robinson beautifully captured the sweet and endearing bond between this precious couple and we are so happy to share these images with you.

Thank you, Danny for serving our country. Our thoughts and prayers are always with you and the other brave men and women. Best of luck to this couple!

A Day at the Lake Engagement Session

When Rachel Robinson approached us to help assist with a vintage , "notebookesque" inspired engagement shoot, we were ecstatic! The cute and clever couple already had the ideas mapped out in their head for a perfect photo shoot. The ingredients? A charming picnic under the trees, a rustic, handmade (by the groom!) Save the Date sign, and most definitely a canoe! We gathered up all of the necessary props, (yes, including that amazing canoe!) and headed out for a day at the lake. The couple brought along a picnic feast representing his love for burgers, and her love for sweets :-)

To see more pictures from this adorable shoot, visit the Rachel Robinson Photography Blog. Her photography is simply beautiful and I cannot to work with her again!

A Hill Country Affair

In the very early stages of our company's formation, we had the fantastic opportunity to participate in the Patio on Mercer's Open House. This outdoor, patio style venue is perfect for charming gatherings and we were so happy to participate in their rustic chic event, "A Hill Country Affair." It was a great chance for us to dive right into the business and stage some really cool vignettes. We used our rustic yellow farm table for the sign in table, as well as our super cool theater seats (from an old church in the Heights!) We also utilized our old bicycle basket for marketing materials. The beautiful flowers by Something Special in Flowers, were arranged in our floral vessels.

Our vintage leather blue chairs fit in perfectly with the decor and served as comfy lounge seating.
We were also able to stage a unique photobooth backdrop with our rustic farm doors and old frames. To see more pictures of this event, you can check out Margaret's photo blog!
