Chelsea Petaja, Nashville Vendor: Hair Accessories Website: Oh My Deer! About Me: "Oh, My Deer!" was born out of a love for play-on-words and getting my hands dirty. I live in Music City USA in a little loft with brick walls, concrete floors and my husband. I teach Visual Arts at a Montessori school that grows organic vegetables and composts nearly everything. It satisfies the hippie in me. I make flowers and feathers for your hair that I hope make you feel beautiful. Sometimes I make drawings and invitations for your eyes. And then that leaves everything in between that I pretend to know how to do.
About ohmydeer
When Tec and I enlisted the help of our friends for the wedding, we often bartered our skills with theirs. Bartering feels so right to me. I know it doesn’t fit for all occasions, but it was perfect for the wedding in that it encouraged the community feel we desired for the day… not to mention it helped with the budget.

Anyway, part of the bartering came full circle when Tec shot Joy Williams, who sang at our wedding. And then, to help me and ‘Oh, My Deer!’ out, Joy modeled a couple new pieces! That pretty little head of hers gave the perfect home to Miss Idaline and Miss Bertie Ann, respectively. I know the following images aren’t the most beautiful or artistically creative shots, but they showed off the hair pieces beautifully.

{Miss Idaline}
This little lady is fashioned with an antique swan brooch that’s adorned with the most lovely feathers.


{Miss Bertie Ann}
“Hey, I’m the cutest headband ever. My name is Bertie Ann.
Nice to meet you.”

Joy’s future sister-in-law was interested in the piece for her wedding, but we both agreed that it just needed… more. I think this little lovely is going to be perfect for their evening, dessert buffet, espresso machine wedding. And without further ado, Miss {soon to be Mrs} Elise:

I cannot believe Joy Williams sung at your wedding! What did she sing? I keep praying somehow Matthew West will sing at mine :)
