Fall Wedding Shoot at The White Room, Crompton Collective, Worcester

I was honored to be part of a wedding shoot this past fall – it pushed me out of my comfort zone (i.e. western Massachusetts – we were all the way in Worcester!) and connected me with a bunch of fantastic vendors! From cake to dresses to jewelry to place to photographer to tablescape, everything looked amazing. I thought that the coordinator, Kawinthi Fernando, of Events by Kawinthi, did a phenomenal job of matchmaking all the vendors to the setting, keeping us well informed and well organized, and corralling all of us the day of, which pretty much sums up the qualities of a good wedding coordinator.

Putting the farm to bed for the winter…

October is kind of a bittersweet month, no pun on bittersweet, that gorgeous, noxious, invasive vine intended!


October means frost, which means the end of most of my flowers, including the dahlias, ageratum, and zinnias that populated so many of my fall-themed bouquets and arrangements.

October means the end of my summer farmer’s market.

October means I only have a few more weeks to make sure everything I want to overwinter has its best chance of making it. This means lots of digging, planting the stragglers, mulching, snipping, and covering.

October means apples and pears the various jams and butters I make.

October means wildcrafting wreath making supplies and dried bits and pieces for winter bouquets.

October means planning for the late fall and winter craft fairs and markets.

And this October means getting my 4-season store open for business! Which is a beast of a different sort!
