This week marks the 6th anniversary of my mom’s passing. I have been thinking about her a lot lately. I struggled a bit with the idea of doing this post, my rational business mind fought my emotional personal side. Most people will tell you not to mix emotions with business, but I thought to myself, “I am in the business of emotions. If I can’t connect on an emotional level with people, how am I suppose to create something unique?“
I decided to pay tribute to her life in the best way I know how, by designing. My mom was very creative and had amazing taste. She was mixing patterns with her furniture way before mixing out of the box patterns became popular. In Puerto Rico, we have a saying: “Lo que se hereda no se hurta” (best way of saying it in English: “It’s in the blood”). I guess you now know where I get my fascination with mixing patterns.
When I finally decided that I was going to do this post, I knew immediately that butterflies were going to take the center stage. She loved butterflies! The color palette was created to match her strong spirit and light soul. The overall design and aesthetic for this wedding is my rendition of a cloudy AND very elegant heaven. 🙂
White butterflies for an angel in heaven! We miss you mom.
