Merry & Bright

As we near the end of another prosperous year, I can’t help but to reflect back at the first thoughts of what was to become Grit + Gold. It was created with love and passion for design but more importantly built around connecting with people. I believe that people are the greatest asset to this business. If it weren’t for clients, vendors and great support from those whom I love around me, it would not have flourished so much in just two little years. We have reorganized, reprioritized, and built a great brand. We have refocused on “who” our client is and “how” to market to them. We’ve spent countless hours looking over our work, understanding where we lack and committing to making improvements that will in turn make Grit + Gold stronger than ever in 2015. We are going to focus on cleaner designing in 2015 and more focus on business mindedness. Out with the wasted funds and in with larger profit margins. Ah and the art of saying “no”. We continue to be dedicated to quality and not just riding trends.

We are going to be built to last not just hype. No grit, no pearl. xoxo

Tiffany & Anthony wed at Westin Stonebriar

When Tiffany and Anthony came to us for creative direction and styling for their wedding day, we were super stoked! They had started a fabulous lineup already so we simply filled in the gaps and developed their personally curated design. It turned out beautifully thanks for friends and talent: The Southern Table (Floral) | Lauren Larsen Photographs (Photographer) | Sprinkles (Icecream) | Cake Walk Bakeshop (Cakes) | Westin Stonebriar (Venue) | David Allen Events (DJ) | Flock Together Booth (Photobooth) | Ruby and the Fox (Paper) | 31 Films (Video) | Natalia Issa (Hair and Makeup) | Grit + Gold (Planning & Design)
