It’s hard to believe that it has been three months since our favorite wedding of the Spring!

We’re flashing back today, so hold on tight.
Texture, romance, and a touch of coral make this wedding simply unforgettable.

We were positively thrilled to design for the lovely Abby Steverson (now Bowlin) and her beau, Alex.

Abby is a talented stylist, and her vision was breathtaking.
We were completely honored to get to make it a reality.

It was a swoonworthy day for sure…

One of our favorite aspects of this wedding was the bride’s special touches–
from the styling to the lettering, the details made this one extra special.

Her calligraphy was a shining star,
and she was able to incorporate the lettering throughout.

The wedding and reception took place at Moore’s Mill Club in Auburn, Alabama.

The elegant landscapes and natural beauty made for the perfect outdoor wedding.

The bride envisioned an arbor as the focal point of the ceremony
and the platform on which she and her groom would marry.

Her father built this beauty with his own hands
and a heavy garland and romantic blooms finished the look…

A special thanks to the incredibly talented Bryan Johnson and his team
at A Bryan Photo for sharing these stunning photos with us.

I’ve been meaning to post this for awhile now,
so let’s fall into flower love together, shall we?

I got the opportunity to design the florals for Lori Fine (now Baden) and her groom, Craig, in late October of last year. I knew this was going to be a special wedding after the first meeting with the bride and her sister, and I was blessed by the Fine family throughout the entire process.

The wedding weekend came, and it was clear and crisp.
The venue was perfect, and Fall decided to show off.

This couple just lights up with love,
and I was thrilled to be a small part of their beautiful weekend.

Thanks to the talented Phil Markam for letting me use these pics. Check him out here

Lori wanted romantic florals, soft tones, and a rustic, natural feel.

That’s one pretty bride right there.

After a month of travel across the pond, Christmas festivities, and an outdoorsy trip to Kentucky,
this girl is rested and ready to buzz into the new year!

Nimblee is excited, too.
We had our best year yet (thanks to you all)!

In fact, it was so busy at times,
we didn’t get to show you some of our favorite work…

or brag on our fabulous clients.

Enter, 31 of 13.

Each day in January, we’ll post an image of a piece of work from 2013.

31 days of our favorites from 2013 (see what we did there?).

It might be branding.

It might be a print.

It could even be florals.

What can we say…we just love design!

Follow us here at our new instagram account, and stay tuned each day for design lovelies!

…………………………………………………..

We hope your 2013 was everything you wanted it to be.

And if it wasn’t, that’s okay.

That’s what new beginnings are for!

*****Hello, 2014!*****

I was honored to do some initial branding work for Sarah Margaret Wade of Art Stories Studio.
Sarah Margaret is an art therapist and an extremely talented artist, I might add.

I fell in love with the name that she chose for her business immediately. She explains the meaning of Art Stories Studio on her web site in these words:

Individually, we have personal stories of celebrations, hardships, and occasional monotony. Stories contain hope and vulnerability; stories contain disappointments and grief. As stories are told, they connect us with others and bring meaning and a sense of order to life.

One effective way that stories (whether true or make-believe) can be communicated is through art therapy, a gentle and yet powerful therapeutic tool that brings about a deeper understanding of oneself. Art Therapy can prove particularly helpful for those who do not have the words to express thoughts and feelings verbally.

 

When I asked her for any inspiration that she might have for the logo, she let me view some of her sketch books. I discovered an entire book of doodles and tiny masterpieces and knew that I wanted to use them in the logo.

I took several elements that she had drawn and put them together to tell a “story” of sorts.

I loved the idea of an open book with pages flipping and creativity bursting out…

Sarah Margaret also needed a web site where she could explain her business and blog regularly.

We took a wordpress template and customized it to make it uniquely “Art Stories Studio”…

I encourage you to visit Art Stories Studio to learn more about Sarah Margaret and art therapy. She’s a thoughtful blogger and passionate about what she does…

And you might just find some stunning pieces of work by the artist, too…

I fell in love with this old hymn that we sing to babies at our church, “I am Jesus’ Little Lamb”.

It quickly became inspiration for some prints:

Jesus' Little Lamb

“Now you can have a little lamb print, too!”  (in the voice of an infomercial)

You can find them at the {nimblee} etsy shop: I am Jesus’ Little Lamb prints

Varying sizes available! The 8 x 10 is currently shown, but other sizes will be up soon. If you would like to request a custom size, shoot me an email: nimbleedesign@gmail.com.

Don’t judge my teeny etsy shop just yet! :) Most of my work is custom, but I will have some things making an appearance in the shop soon.

Have a lovely day!

xoxo
