Words we live by.

“Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day-in, day-out. Not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years. And working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.” – Angela Lee Duckworth

  • Lottie

    Owner + Creative Director

    Born and bred in Texas, Lottie has deep Southern roots. Owner and creator of all that is Grit & Gold, Lottie has worked for years honing her design look and defining her planning style. Studying art and design at the University of North Texas, Lottie approaches the event process by meshing artistic style with master organization. “I want to create an environment where clients can appreciate being inspired. It’s more than just one day, it’s a lifestyle, a journey”. With a background in event management, Grit + Gold can provide creative direction, logistical management, decor sourcing, vendor curation, destination scouting, styling, photo shoot direction, consulting, and more. Lottie gets her kicks in local business nooks and crannies, wine by a cozy fire, classic cars, being a momma to Saylor Rue, old sweet homes, porch talks, and traveling the world.
