Naomi Farr – Editor-in-Chief / Creative Director
I’m inspired by flowers, art, fashion, love stories, and women business owners! I met my husband while ice climbing in Alaska and after planning a mountain wedding in NH (2011) developed a passion for finding the perfect natural wedding details. This blog you see before you is the result of twining my love of nature, weddings, writing, photography, and design.
I hold an MFA in creative writing and am also the creator of Violette & Iris bridal accessories. I live in Vermont with my husband, Tim, and two cats, Luke & Leia. I’m obsessed with green beauty products. You can read my reviews and musings at Sweet Violet Beauty.
My favorite flower(s): Violets, obviously! And peonies, wild roses, iris, asters, and so many others!
I feel best when I am: Walking in nature or in my studio making something with my hands.
Every woman should own: At least one (natural) lipstick that makes her feel like a million bucks.
I love magazines: Faerie Magazine, ELLE, Martha Stewart Living, Dwell, Belle Armoire and more…
Sweet Violet (Viola odorata) also known as the wood violet, can be deep violet, or white in color. It can mean faithfulness, love, virtue, affection, and ‘lets take a chance on happiness.’
Sweet Violet Bride is a wedding resource for modern, nature-loving brides and showcases chic, stylish inspiration for couples planning their upcoming day – from real weddings and styled editorials to featured wedding professionals who understand natural style. Whether planning a meadow, garden, forest, beach, mountain, or backyard wedding, violet brides know that elegance is in the natural details.
The SVB blog stemmed from of a love of botanical beauty, both wild and cultivated, from woodland violets to garden roses. Flowers, and the art they inspire, bring such joy and beauty to couture bridal fashions, and SVB likes to impart that in the fine art photography and concepts that we publish. It is a blog about distinctive style (especially if it is rustic, natural, ethereal, vintage or country), all things gorgeous, and most of all, great love stories. Check out our magazine!
