My name is Jen and like a lot of other girls, I’m completely obsessed with weddings and always have been. Working within the wedding industry for over 12 years as a mobile hairdresser, being a self-proclaimed master crafter and an avid follower of wedding blogs – I felt a deep need to create my very own. So in 2011 Something Turquoise was born.
I’m a wedding loving (especially if it’s super dreamy and covered in eucalyptus!!), rosé drinking, crazy dog lady who’s part wedding editor and part website designer! Living in Nashville with my two fur children Knox and Neyland and my high school sweetheart and dream of a hubs, Joseph. I was Something Turquoise’s first bridal blogger and you can find my [wedding feature here](http://somethingturquoise.com/2016/03/02/romantic-outdoor-cocktail-party-wedding/). Follow me on [Instagram](https://www.instagram.com/shea1088/) and check out my business [Sands Marketing Company](https://www.sandsmarketingcompany.com/)!
I’m proud to be the lead graphic designer for Something Turquoise! I’ve known Jen for over 10 years and became part of the team back in 2016. Most all of the free printable downloads you’ll find here are my designs, including the new website and branding!

I’m a wedding designer and planner extraordinaire, based in New York City and the Hudson Valley. I fell in love with weddings and the industry after planning my own nuptials in 2012 ([featured here on ST](http://somethingturquoise.com/2013/08/28/colorful-diy-wedding/)), and [I Love Love Events](http://www.iloveloveevents.com/) was born. I Love Love Events, is a boutique styling and planning firm specializing in creative events, each lovingly crafted for the individual couple. I contribute an article here on Something Turquoise every month focused on wedding decor or fashion. When I’m not planning or writing about weddings, I’m a mom to an adorable blonde baby boy, Oliver. You can often find me DIY-ing things around the house, curating my stylish wardrobe or traveling the globe and documenting it all on my lifestyle website, [Lauren Koster Creative](https://www.laurenkoster.com/). If that isn’t enough, I also design handbags for The Sak. I love lipstick, shoes, glitter anything, my adorable black Vespa and, just like Jen, the color Turquoise.
Sometimes I do things a little differently, and I like it that way. Our tiny DIY brunch wedding was full of 260 handmade tissue paper tassels, homemade granola favors, chicken and waffles, bacon, and just 35 people. I was Something Turquoise’s second Bridal Blogger and you can find my super sweet [wedding feature here](http://somethingturquoise.com/2016/10/12/intimate-backyard-wedding/). If I’m at home, I’m probably in my favorite sweatpants, and I’m a firm believer in the healing powers of cuddling with our rescue dog, Mona. I love cooking for fun, but I hate doing it out of necessity. Speaking of food, I have an extensive cookbook collection, but I could eat cookies everyday for the rest of my life. In addition to freelance writing and copywriting, I have my own website, [Kendra Found It](www.kendrafoundit.com), where I share my minimalist fashion inspiration and all the crazy beauty, fashion, and decor deals I find.
