Southern Summer: Amanda & Jordan's Berry Beautiful Wedding

The transition from Jessica's personal brand, J.RoCro Arts + Letters to Boarding School Collective has been a slow one, and not always linear. Sometimes weddings get featured by wedding publications months after the fact, so the items showcased may have been done at the time by J.RoCro and credited as such, but are now only available via Boarding School.  

The work is going to look the same, if not better, now, thanks to the benefits of experience and by adding Bethany to the team - in fact, this is one of the weddings where Bethany worked behind the scenes as an extra set of J.RoCro hands before BSC was officially formed.

Amanda and Jordan's Pecan Springs Ranch celebration is everything we love about summer. It felt free, and warm, and bright, and was full of both berry tones and actual berries. Throw in a few dashes of elevated seersucker and you've basically got a summer vacation for any boarding schooler. Plus, we get to kick off the first semester of 2017 with a feature on Southern Weddings! Check it out here.

We were lucky enough to provide some large signage, under the styling direction of Westcott Weddings, and everything was shot by the talented Feather & Twine photography.

Class Party! Launch Party with Birch & Brass

We are so behind and need to pull a few classic all-nighters to get our homework done, but had to take a study break to share these photos of the Birch & Brass showroom opening party (which doubled as our official launch party!) by the incredible Sophie Epton.

If you've never partied in a furniture warehouse, well darlings, reconsider.  Everywhere we looked there were stylish vignettes and unique pieces of furniture, envisioned and styled by the beauties of Birch & Brass. These women work incredibly hard, and are such inspirations to us for never compromising their vision or the quality of their offerings. The founder and creative director, Brittany Pigorini, continually raises the bar for small business ownership here in Austin and is such a leader in our community. We are lucky to get to work with them and love getting to enjoy the beautiful spaces they create, and were honored to be able to co-host the event with them.

The highlight of the evening was getting to see and meet the faces-behind-the-emails of many wedding + event industry professionals, made even more fun by the addition of Vannagram & Co., a vintage VW Bus photo booth where we could document some class-clown action...  

Delicious charcuterie and little morsels were provided by Coté Catering, and She & Him bartending kept the drinks flowing!  

We are so grateful that despite everyone's insanely busy autumns, people were able to pop by and celebrate with us. 

Is it time to have an anniversary party, yet!?

Top of the Class: Paul & Shamim's Big Day on Green Wedding Shoes

The secret to any group project lies in the strength of the team - and what a team we got to be part of for Paul & Shamim's wedding at the beautiful Prospect House here in Austin. 

Modern, minimal and stunning (including the gorgeous bride and groom themselves!), the wedding is featured on Green Wedding Shoes and you can enjoy it in all its clean finery here.

Back to School

Class is finally in session!
We are now open for business.

Eventually, we'd love all orders to be placed through our online store. For items listed there, we won't be providing quotes or proposals so we can spend more time making beautiful things for you. But until we get the store fully up and running with our full range of inventory and product offerings, please place all orders or inquiries via the Contact page or via an email to hello@boardingschoolcollective.com

More, soon!
 

 

Coming Soon

We're busy clapping erasers together and unstacking the chairs and wiping down the blackboards before opening our doors.

When the semester starts, though, this will be the best place to find updates, inspiration, and required reading for all things Boarding School Collective. 

Sharpen your pencils and shine your penny loafers - we'll be ready before you know it.
