Welcome!

Hey y'all, Dominique here!  

You've likely made your way to my slice of the interwebs from my FacebookInstagram or Pinterest page, and I appreciate you checking things out! Here you'll find photos of past weddings and styled photo shoots, resources and checklists, tips, and SO MUCH MORE.  I am bursting with excitement and cannot wait to share the things I've learned since starting my business in 2009.

Wait a second...  I should probably take a minute to let you get to know a bit about ME, huh?  I was born and raised in Wisconsin.  I left for 3 months to do relief work in New Orleans and came back.  Aside from the winters [*ahem* approximately six months out of the year] I LOVE living here.  I am a Mama to two sweet, energetic, and slightly rambunctious boys. I love tacos, Tex Tubbs Fried Cauliflower Tacos are amazing, along with El Grito Taqueria. I love practicing yoga and recently tried my first hot yoga class at Dragonfly Hot Yoga.  I started wedding planning professionally in November 2009 under the name Simple Elegance and rebranded to Wood Violet in June of 2016. My rebrand more accurately reflects my design aesthetic and clientele. I LOVE all aspects of planning a wedding, but my passion is design and styling of tablescapes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for stopping by and I hope you check back from time to time and see what the new happenings are around here.

Cheers!
