Whitefield Design by Brynn Snyder

I have been meaning to spread the word about one of my talented friends. Brynn (MacLennan) Snyder and I have been friends for....well, our whole lives, I guess. She has recently started her own design company and it is definitely worth checking out. She graduated in Industrial Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Brigham Young University and is one creative girl. So far I have been the lucky recipient of some beautiful thank-you cards, and a personalized monogram address stamp. She does great work. Check it out!

Wedding Bells

Our sister is going to be getting married in about 8 weeks, which will make her wedding a Thanksgiving/Fall one.

Weddings are one of the best times for creativity to shine through. Trying to get big impact for the least price takes some real talent.

With this in mind, we would love to see what you, or someone you helped, did for a wedding. Send in your pictures of anything wedding related to Don't be shy, it will be fun to share some ideas! Also don't worry about what season your wedding was, just send em' in.

Here are a few to start from my long ago, haha.....

The dress---I have always been interested in designing dresses, and so I was able to design my dress, find and put together the fabric, and with the help of my amazing seamstress, create just what I had hoped for. I love lace!

The bouquet. I love hydrangeas, and being summer I was able to have fresh ones! I pinned my grandma's broach onto the bouquet for an extra personal touch!

The cake was made by my talented cousin. I am a chocolate lover, so this was a fun treat!

The guest book I made using fabric paper and pictures my father-in-law took of us. We also had at the guest book table a picture frame with "10 things Darin loves about Jenna, and 10 things Jenna loves about Darin." This has been fun to have hanging in our room and to read over.....some things just don't change!

My mom had aprons made for us. "Darin loves Jenna" and "Jenna loves Darin" printed on them. We still love wearing them!

The centerpieces were welded iron twisted rods with a 4-legged base. My father-in-law and brother-in-law were the creators of these. My mom and I did the hydrangea flower arrangements.


The backdrop was a creation from my sister-in-laws family. We just added our own flowers.
