It’s been a busy and exciting week here at D*S, and the best has most definitely been saved for last because tomorrow, Kate Pruitt flies into town! She’s joining Amy and I in the office for two weeks while we work on tons of DIY projects for the site, as well as some other fun D*S-related side-projects. I’m running out to pick up some things to make her temporary home more comfortable, but I wanted to wrap up this week with something fitting for the happy mood in the office: a beautiful weekend wedding designed and styled by Jolene Sullivan and photographed by Tec Petaja. From the flowers on the tables to the hand-drawn maps and incredible setting (Dunton Hot Springs), this weekend looks just perfect. If this doesn’t make you long for a summer spent in the mountains, I don’t know what will.
I wanted to send an extra thanks to all of you for supporting our new projects this week — the radio show and Pinterest page. We’re so excited about both and happy to have all of your feedback. xo, grace
