gathering in style {Jessica + Shea}

we {heart} the simplicity and intimacy of small gatherings; a time to slow down and appreciate being together.  we recognize that there is something about a shared table amongst friends not just a once-a-year holiday gathering that anchors our relationships and energizes us.  that’s why we came together to create MS as our collaborative way of advocating the natural approach of entertaining that we love.

we just loved working with jessica as she was planning the most intimate of occasions…  her wedding to shea.  here’s a glimpse of their celebration at main social.
