Mount Si Engagement Session // Samantha McFarlen // Shayna + Mark // Bixby + Pine

Today is an exciting day, because it’s ONE. MONTH. away from (what we know is gonna be) one of our favorite weddings of the year. Shayna + Mark have been a TRUE pleasure for us to work with. Shayna is basically Taylor so you can imagine the emails and text messages that come through--honesty, bluntness, drama, and lots of hilariousness. For real.

Should I Invite My Wedding Planner or Wedding Vendor To My Bridal Shower? // An Inside Look For Brides // Bixby + Pine

That title is a little forward, don't ya think? But truthfully, we are invited to almost every. single. one. And you can bet we count our blessings.

You see, this little business of ours is about so much more than about designing a rad wedding. It's really about the people. And we don't say that lightly. We say that because our clients are our friends, and there's really no two ways about it.

Workation: Monday // The Ruin Venue in Joshua Tree, California // Styled Shoot // Bixby + Pine

While usually Monday is the nation-wide-dreaded-day, I welcomed it with open arms! Being in California, in the desert, with some of my favorite people was the perfect way to wake up. I started my day with a trip to Trader Joe's where I instantly picked up some additional blooms that matched the shoot's color palette perfectly. I carried on through the store picking out the prettiest of fruits and vegetables as we knew that was an important element we wanted to add to the tablescape (and it paid offffff!).

WTF, It's January // Newsletter // Bixby + Pine

Sometimes January is a hard time to "start new"! There is so much pressure on "starting off right" and "setting new goals". Like, we just had Thanksgiving, then Christmas--how in the hell are we supposed to have time to, I don't know, reflect, rejuvenate, and outline new goals?

We're still learning what works for us, and because we all took a low-key break when Ashley was on maternity leave, the end of 2017 looked a bit different for us than it has in years past. We wanted to have a B+P Company Party and invite some of our favorite industry friends (you know, our real-life friends). We also decided to sit down and do PowerSheets TOGETHER. You see, we bought them last year, but never ended up touching them. And this year, we knew we wanted some intentional focus for our year--both personally and professionally.

Lexi + Scott // A Suncadia Wedding // Bixby + Pine

Not sure that we can really put into words what this summer wedding at Suncadia was like, but we're going to give it a shot. Oh, and we've taken a minute to share this because it finally hit newsstands in the Seattle Bride Magazine!

Lexi + Scott came to us from a recommendation of a friend, and really, we just instantly loved them. Their vision was bold, their personalities meshed with ours, and we were off to a good start. We chatted about all hopes and dreams for the wedding weekend, and then we began to daydream on "what if we did this" and "what if we did that". Lexi + Scott had a few big ideas, but really left the rest to us (talk about a dream for us!).

Sneak Peek // Winter Styled Shoot // Sarah Anne Photography // Bixby + Pine

While we're gearing up for 2018 over here at BPHQ, we snuck in a styled shoot that has hit high on our list of things we loved about 2017. Sarah of Sarah Anne Photography asked us to design a shoot so that she can elevate her brand and start her website re-launch off right--and goddamn, that's exactly what we did. We wanted magical, haunting, dark, romantic, moody--and we got all of that and more. The color palette was stunning (if we do say so ourselves) and the vendor team was dope, and maybe the sweetest part was the couple--a real life couple we were celebrating TWELVE years of marriage the very next day.

B+P Client Christmas Gifts // Bixby + Pine

We have played with many ideas in the past for how we want to gift our clients--is it a booking gift? A pre-wedding gift? A day-of wedding gift? A post-wedding gift? An anniversary gift? A Christmas gift? A birthday gift? Oh man, the options are ENDLESS. And guys, we're the gifting type (especially Taylor), and so it will probably always be a work in progress, but this year...this year takes the cake!

Jordan + Zack // Intimate Couples Session // Apostrophe & Co

Zack and I hadn’t been together for YEARS when we decided to do an intimate session with A&Co BUT we are so glad we did!!! We were both a little nervous, we decided really last minute that we wanted to do it, so of course my head went to all of my imperfections and flaws. Ironically, his did too! I’ve been around the camera a bit more than he has so naturally he was much more nervous than I was. Ultimately I was really excited to have that moment in our relationship captured forever.
