Sitting here in the middle of a heat wave, it’s hard to recall those cold and bleak winter days when this project was created. I refuse to complain of the heat, because I know it’s only a matter of time until the grass turns grey and the land is barren once more. It was in those days of winter when a group of us came together to create hope, knowing that spring would one day return…
These are the words that inspired me back in those winter days:
“There’s a world out there aching for spring. The grey of winter locks the doors and seals our windows tight. The stagnant air trapped around us starts to suffocate. But then, just when we think we can’t take another minute, hope, in the form of a single ray of sun shines through.
The world around me and the constant changing seasons are my forever muse. A different canvas is created each month and as an artist, I’m continually inspired to create. This made choosing The Old Art Building, complete with whitewashed wood and painting mishaps, the perfect backdrop for this project. If the walls could talk, I’m sure they’ve be filled in generations of inspiring tales.
And as each of us waiting for spring, longing for the first pops of color to appear in a cold and dismal season, so I image a bride waiting for her groom. Waiting for the perfect moment when they someday will meet, the seeds of love will be sown and blossom into a beautiful marriage.
Nature was kept at the forefront of this inspiration, incorporating fallen branches, forgotten twigs and foraged evergreen vines. Springtime botanicals filled the space with minimalistic touches on the tabletop and a living art installation serving as the hand painted cake’s backdrop.
My favorite details though are the ones you can’t plan for. The sun beaming through the venue’s grand windows, warming the day and reminding us of the beautiful moments yet to come.”
