On Capitol Hill today, the amazing Anne Robert snapped a few pics maternity of me in between shooting for the new website.  The new site was looking for a preggo Momma, so that is how I got involved, as this bump is definitely out there!  It actually worked out perfectly because I didn’t want a whole typical maternity shoot and this gave Anne enough time just to snap a few pics of me and my belly without making a whole production of it.  I don’t have any pics of how my mom looked when she was preggo with me, so I wanted to be sure to capture that for my little one when he gets older.  I am 36 weeks in this photo…counting down to Dec 8 when Baby Baldwin is due.

I won’t lie, I am very nervous how I am going to balance new motherhood and running Something Vintage.  I feel like I could dedicate 1000000 hours a week to Something Vintage and it still wouldn’t be enough.  But there are plenty of awesome moms in the DC wedding industry who manage to be fabulous at their professions and great moms, like Anne Robert, Sugar Taylor, and Holly Chapple, so that gives me not only hope but inspiration that I can do this.

Eclectic is the name of our game at Shadow Creek wedding in Purcellville, VA

Our Petworth pub height farm tables and handmade industrial barstools lookin’ good

We recently had the pleasure of setting up for a gorgeous wedding at Shadow Creek in Purcellville, VA in Loudoun County.   The awesome couple contacted us almost a year ago when they had a vision of using dinner stations rather than a seated dinner and wanted eclectic seating for the outdoor ceremony….uh, which of course we were thrilled to help with!  We mixed our Petworth pub height farm tables and industrial bar stools with our classic reclaimed wood farm tables to create the look they were going for inside and our mismatched vintage dining chairs for their outdoor ceremony.  I can’t wait to see pics from this creative couple from their photographer Genevieve Lepier!
