Shannon's 40 Before 40

Shannon's 40 Before 40

I meant to write this post a long time ago, but time got away from me. Time's a funny thing. You can't get it back. It's precious.

A Dreamy Yellow, Gray, and Mint Inspiration Shoot

Bespoken | | Photo by Jessica Barley

When I started dreaming up Bespoken and what this business would stand for and value, I wanted to design an aesthetic that would best represent it all. I designed many inspiration boards until I honed in on the look I wanted to represent Bespoken. I kept fine-tuning the boards until it felt just right. Then I approached Jessica Barley of A Darling Day, Julie Dodds with Willow Florals, and Sofia Sayer with Sofia Invitations and The Gilded Line for collaboration. And on a Sunday morning, we pulled everything together, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. 

Thank you, ladies, for collaborating with me and helping me build this business. You're all amazing.
