Announcing The Heirloom Shop!

Over the last 4 years, I’ve been building and refining my approach to weddings. From Heirloom’s very first clients, my philosophy for heartfelt wedding planning has grown and evolved. I’ve long wanted a way to share this approach beyond the in-person couples that I have the opportunity to work with because I think this approach is truly NEEDED in the wedding industry and beyond.

It’s been an honest struggle in finding a way to package this information in a format that was easy enough for couples to use on their own. After months of planning and designing, our Heirloom Shop is finally ready for you!

Trending Design Concepts

There are a few design trends that I think are just on the cusp and feeling very fresh right now. I use the word trends very loosely, because I look for an undercurrent of timelessness to everything I do. None the less, bringing fresh approaches and elements into you wedding day, home or life keeps things interesting and exciting.

Here are three inspiring design trends that I’m loving right now:

Heirloom Event Co. | Get To Know The Wedding Pros

Name: Abby McKinney

Tell us how your business evolved to where it is today: Heirloom started because I wanted to find a way to merge my event planning skills with my creative drive to make beautiful things. It’s evolved to include both planning and floral design and feels like the best of both worlds, for me and for Heirloom’s couples!

What’s your favorite part of a wedding day: Handing over the bouquet. It’s the first time I see her that day and when I put that bouquet in her hand, it makes the day feel very Real! It’s also my favorite piece to design.

5 Favorites

Favorite Beauty Product: The Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut Oil combo that I learned about from Young House Love. Organic and affordable! My skin has been glowing.

Favorite Place To Visit or Travel: My husband and I went on an impromptu trip to Louisville last year and I loved it! We stayed in a chic little historic B&B and ate twice at GraleHaus because it was so delicious. I also became obsessed with Louisville Stoneware.

Favorite piece of decor in your home: My collection of vintage artwork from my travels and days spent wandering flea markets.

Favorite item always in your bag: My Kate Spade business card holder. A gift from my bff when I stated Heirloom.
