Words From a Sensitive Woman in Business

I grew up with a mother and a father who both loved me very very much, but also always pushed me to have a very strong work ethic. They believed that whatever it is you wanted in life, you could absolutely¬† succeed and get what you want by working hard and being a good person. I believe that their love and support has shaped me into the woman that I am to this day, and for that, I am forever grateful. I am also extremely blessed to have a husband and partner in life who supports all of my dreams and goals. Not only does he support them, but he makes sure that I am going after them and drops everything he has going on to help me achieve my dreams. I don’t know how I got so lucky. Today, I felt very strongly about sharing my perspective on being a woman and owning a business in the wedding and event industry in Arizona. Like always, I want to be transparent… So, buckle up because here we go. (more…)

Hello 2016, Goodbye 2015

Like many people do at the start of a new year, you think of things to improve in your life. Whether that is connecting with old friends or making time for new ones, spending more time focusing on your health and wellness, or focusing on career goals.  With the new year, Matt and I both decided we want to focus on our business. (As we should!) We have a few different goals and what better way to get things started than by writing a blog post about them.


Custom Built Mid Century Style Credenza

I am excited to showcase a new piece I was able to create for one of our close friends and customers, Bekah and Ian Odgear. Leah and I are both currently very into mid-century modern design as a whole and it has given us a chance to broaden the range of style furniture we offer, as well as the style of furniture I can challenge myself to create. Bekah and Ian moved to Portland in early June, and wanted a new credenza for their new place in Portland, Oregon. I was honored they hired me! The idea behind the design was to keep a clean modern shape with some rustic touches. The rustic touches can be seen in the color and finish of the shelving and sliding doors. We wanted to continue that blend of modern-rustic feel with the legs that have a modern shape. (more…)

Leah + Matt | Tremaine Ranch

When we had the opportunity to revamp our brand and our site, we felt that making a branding film for Tremaine Ranch was important. We really wanted to let people know who we are, what we do and why we do it. And who else would we choose to help us than our good friend Erica Marr with Erica Marr Films. She has such a great way of capturing exactly what you envision. When I approached her to help us make a branding film, she was so excited for us. We couldn’t have been happier with how our film turned out. She is as professional as they come and we can’t recommend her enough to those looking for either a wedding film or a branding film. Watch the video below and tell us what you think. (more…)
