This Sunday, April 22 is Earth Day, and what better way to kick off the Earth Day weekend than with an Earth Day inspired wedding shoot featured on Style Me Pretty!
I worked with a team of talented vendors to create this gorgeous, earthy wedding shoot. The shoot took place at Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. It’s an oasis quietly tucked away in Atlanta’s bustling eastside. It’s the perfect place for an intimate event.
Blue Eyed Yonder supplied all of the vintage furniture and accessories. From globes, chairs, tables, sugar molds and baking tins. It was so fun to see a dash of vintage incorporated into the modern, earthy vibe of the shoot.
Hats off to all the wonderful vendors that made this shoot a darling success! And a big hug to Robin of Robin Nathan Photography (this gal’s got mad tree-movin’ skills!), Jaimie and Maggie of Estoria Social (is there anything these gals can’t do?), Kurt of Southeast Succulents (hands down one of the coolest dudes around) and Max of Sun In My Belly (keep that delicious food comin’ ol’ chap!)

In the mood to get a little crafty this weekend? Check out BEY’s DIY Fabric Drawer Liners featured on Joy of All Crafts today. While your there, get totally inspired by the craft master herself, Heather! She’s got lots of fun DIY tutorials on her site and you’re sure leave with a long list projects you’re just dying to try!
Last weekend we loaded up lots of vintage goodies and headed down to Salvage, a curated vintage show put on by the lovely gals of Indie Craft Experience. It was so much fun working with all the people at the event and sharing the same love – VINTAGE!
Here’s a little peek at Blue Eyed Yonder’s booth. That insane chalkboard backdrop was created by the most talented man alive, Mr. BEY. Seriously, is there anything he can’t do? It was a huge hit and added that healthy dose of charm to our space.
We met so many people and made so many friends. One lady was super sweet, the first thing she said to me was, “Girl, I just gotta hug your neck!” (Ha! Gotta love that.) She said she had been looking at our site and reading our story about working together as husband and wife and was just so happy for us and excited about this new adventure. Her sweet words made my heart grow two sizes!
All of the vendors there did a great job creating the dreamiest of spaces. From gorgeous furniture to colorful vintage gowns, I left there with an overflow of inspiration! And you know I couldn’t leave empty handed. I purchased the coolest illustration from artist Sarah Watts of Wattsalot. That girl has talent dripping from her fingertips.
Now that you’ve had a little recap of the event and a peek at some vendor’s spaces, hold onto your seats and brace yourself for some COLOR… photos of the Salvage lounge coming soon!
I’ve been super busy getting ready for Salvage this weekend. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this event put on by the girls of Indie Craft Experience (ICE). Anything those girls put their minds to turns to gold, so pair them with an event all about vintage – Guaranteed Awesomeness!
Blue Eyed Yonder is partnering with Pabst Blue Ribbon to bring you the Salvage Lounge. Just a cool, little place to rest your feet and grab a brew. We’ll be debuting some of our new mid-century pieces, and let me tell you, these pieces have an attitude all their own. If you get there early, you might even see Don Draper waking up on one of the sofas.
Don’t leave without stopping by Blue Eyed Yonder’s booth at the show. While we’re not selling anything, we do have a super-dee-duper giveaway! Hold onto your seats for this one…
We’re partnering with LeahAndMark for a styled photo shoot GIVEAWAY!
I know what you’re thinking… Get out! No way! Heavens to Betsy! Drop your name in and we’ll draw a winner at the end of the event. If you win, you’ll work with Blue Eyed Yonder to pick out some snazzy vintage pieces for a photo shoot by LeahAndMark at the Goat Farm in Atlanta. Get some cool pictures of yourself, your kids, your dog, your choice! You don’t wanna miss this, kiddos!
