HOW IT BEGAN
Adorning Oaks came to life in late 2016. Haley and Adam got married in October and planned a fabulous fall celebration with custom signs, live edge tables, inlaid bar, wedding favors, and directional signs. Haley's love of detail and Adam's creative mind shined through to create a truly ONE OF A KIND day.
It was just a hobby that turned into much more. With EIGHT friends getting married in the summer & fall of 2017, Haley and Adam were quite busy helping their wedding dreams come true, too!
Sprinkled in between the weddings, were baby showers and birthday parties to celebrate the little ones in their lives. It was apparent to Haley that every life event should be decorative, memorable, and beautiful. So, Haley started "Adorning Oaks."
(Behind The Brand: According to Google, "to adorn" is to "make more beautiful or attractive"... which is what Adorning Oaks strives to do for every sign, in every detail, and for every customer! Also, the majority of Adorning Oaks' first signs were made of wood, hence the word choice "Oaks")
WHERE WE CREATE
In the early Spring of 2018, Adam and Haley purchased an old "fixer-upper" cinderblock building on the Southside of Carmel, Indiana in an area known as Home Place. The building was built in 1914 and needed a lot of love... or as Adam would say "it had a lot of potential." With help from a local business, Custom Living, they remodeled the space. Around a year later, at the start of 2019, Adorning Oaks moved in! The building is near the intersection of 106th Street and College Ave. and is where Haley now does all the finishing work on signs and ships out online orders.
ABOUT OUR FAMILY
Adam and Haley welcomed a little boy into their lives in February of 2020. He brings so much joy! Now, our lives are filled with painting signs, making business plans and changing diapers! Adam and Haley love time together as a family, which came in abundance in 2020. We love camping, traveling, time with our dogs, and going out to eat (tacos and guac, please).
We are all looking forward to the future of Adorning Oaks. We are grateful for each customer - you each are allowing us to follow our small business dream! Thank you.
