What's better than playing with ponies? Playing with ponies with friends! A few weekends ago I was in Ocala, Florida celebrating the upcoming wedding of my bestie, Ashley Cline, owner of EquestrianStylist.com. Her family has a horse farm there so a bunch of us girls met for some rest/relaxation surrounded by green pastures, ponies, and a bunch of other furry friends. I was in heaven! We played with chickens (yes, chickens), laid by the pool, and had a photoshoot dressed in a our best derbyesque attire. New York City milliner, Christine A. Moore, sent Ashley some gorgeous hats and Ash's mom, Kathy, is a fantastic photographer so we had everything needed for a perfect shoot.
Everything was of course equestrian themed. Right down to the napkins of which were adorned with a logo I created for Ashley's wedding invitations.
This was the first time I had been to Ocala which felt like Kentucky plus palm trees and moss.
Playing with chickens might not sound like the most common activity, but let me tell you...it's awesome! There were a bunch of different varieties; those girls were gorgeous! The flowers in the garden were also exceptionally gorg. Especially this passion flower. I need! This was certainly the type of "bachelorette weekend" I prefer. Sunshine and stress free!
Below is a glimpse at the wedding suite for Ashley and Andy. First and foremost was of course the logo which was included in so many places (even the wedding cake is going to be graced with it!). I also illustrated the church in Winter Park which was placed on the formal invites. And obvi you need a map to let your guests know where all the festivites will be located.
Can't wait to see all these girls again in just a few short weeks!
