Hey dooods. Thought you might like to see the progress I’m making on our new place! I’m blogging exclusively at Veronica Sheaffer Blog, where you can see everything come together as I make important life decisions about each and every piece of art that goes up on the walls (meaning: nothing ever gets hung on the walls).
Today I’m featuring our pink dining room. Please join me there and be sure to follow along for the latest!
Oh and my new brides are also AMAZING. *wink*
Hello, my sweets! Just wanted to pop in and remind you that there’s stuff going on elsewhere! Nothing new over here. Ever. For real. Come see me on my new blog, where I’m actually blogging again. No really! This is what you’ve missed:
Today I’m sharing sketches and fabrics for a super gorgeous, fashionable bride doing something truly runway-worthy.
Want to see my Edera gown in navy in a moody, Art-Nouveau, tarot-inspired shoot? YES. You do.
I’m in the midst of planning the new collection, and the inspiration is so good, it’s sending me into an idea overload.
Did I tell you about the new website? My own husband missed the news last week, so … I felt the need to remind everyone.
And I’m probably going to share a little sneak peek of a gown in the new collection later this week, because I have no self-control. Don’t forget to update your subscriptions and blogrolls to see all of the new stuff!
You guys! I’m so excited to share with you all sorts of really big news. Please click over to my BRAND NEW BLOG(!!) to read all about it. Can’t wait to see you there!
I was in LA over Memorial Day weekend – soaking up the sun (and food and booze and fun) with my best girlfriends. And even though it was my first real trip away from my sweet, little family, and I missed them both so desperately, it was much-needed and appreciated, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I will say though, that flying on your own is COMPLETELY different when you NEED to get home. Like, when a person’s entire life would take on a heavy sadness if you didn’t make it back. That’s intense. Parenthood, you guys.
Wee! Welcome to my blog!
Everything was fine, of course, and I am so much more clear-headed after the break. And soft from all of the food. Restaurant recs:
Mozza (this was our second time – and it was just as incredible as the first visit)
Hinoki & the Bird (amazing)
Gjelina (in Venice – also amazing)
While I was there, I also stopped in to visit Maria Diaz, owner of the completely charming Bride boutique in the Echo Park neighborhood. I took along a couple of gowns to show her all of the fancy little details, because …
… she’s hosting a trunk show starting this weekend! You do NOT want to miss this event. I know, because I get emails and tweets from you gorgeous LA girls on the regular, and I know Chicago is a very long trip for you. Because of that, we’re doing an extra long event – two whole weeks! May 31 – June 15. Be sure to book your appointment right away! Not only will you get to see the gowns in person, and check out all of the laces and bows on the INSIDE of the gowns, but you’ll also get to hang out with Maria, who is really so easy and sweet – you will have the best time.
And send me some Instagram pics or something! I miss LA so much – I’ll have to live vicariously through you.
So … this is exciting!
First, I’m completely thrilled to announce the next stop on what feels like a never-ending tour for my honey-pie gowns (we had gowns loaned out to FOUR different photo shoots just this last week – such a whirlwind!). And for this one, I’m calling out to my Georgia girls …
Psst … do you know that I am one of you? I was born in Columbus, GA on Fort Benning. Army brat! When I was a little babe, I thought my grandpa made up the pet name “Georgia Peach” just for me. I’m a southern girl AND an ego-maniac!
Anyway, I am completely in love with Savannah – it’s so gorgeous and elegant – and I’m so excited to be showing at the beautiful Ivory + Beau boutique. Talk about CUTESville. Please be sure to make an appointment right away for this week-long pop-up shop – I’m sending the new collection along with some all-time favorites, and you totally don’t want to miss it!
May 10 – 17, 2014

Oh and also …
Just losing my mind over this. No big deal. The newest collection is featured on The Cut, you guys. You know … New York Magazine. Just sitting here having a total heart attack or something.
#lucky #grateful #humbled
I survived the lunatic weeks leading up to the photo shoot, and in the end, it was a-maaaaz-ing. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw these like five days ago, but here they are for the rest of you.
P.S. Why aren’t you guys following me on Instagram? *tear*
Florals by Bottle and Branch. Dope.
And … I got the proofs back yesterday. Prepare to lose your minds. I’m just saying. I’ve lost mine a few times already. I think these are my favorite EVER. I mean, I’m always freaking out, I know, but it’s serious this time. So, SO good.
High fives and hugs to the Dream Team: photographer Billy Rood and his assistant Luhrs Heldrich, Hair/Makeup by Bridal Beauty Chicago and the gorgeous model Danielle Maddox. I could not wish for a more amazing group of people. I MEAN IT. Also, a million hugs and kisses to my mom for spending the day chasing Poppy, and forever thank you to Sweet Stuff over here for helping me plow through the last week, and for buying me such a pretty house.
***Runway show update***
Okay, so the first-tier tickets are completely sold out. WHA? I know. But there are tons of second- and third-tier tickets still available. Yes they’re more expensive, BUT did you know that those tickets are eligible for a couple of insane raffles? The prizes are a free makeup service from Makeup by Jo (um, awfully handy for your wedding day, no? or for your next fancy night out.) AND a day-of wedding coordination package from Sebastian Events. Your chances are really good for winning either, because there’s a strict cap on tickets, and both prizes are worth way more than the price of a ticket. Yeah, I’ll let that sink in a second. Now go get your tickets!
