My inspiration for t he design was t he trend of free flowing florals and

being organic. I wanted to show couples t hat you don’t always need flowers to be placed in a vessel to be beautiful and to show t hem t hat you can make a beautiful focal point anywhere in your venue of c hoice. It ’s time for ever yone to t hink and move outside of what ’s traditional and express t hemselves freely.

“The inspiration for this shoot came from recently helping to plan a destination bachelorette party for a close friend in Lake Tahoe.

We wanted to highlight a fresh idea for a destination bachelorette party focusing on fun details like themed drinks, perfect for cool or war m weather, thank you gifts for your bridal party, as well as a unique twist to the typical luncheon: a picnic! With an overall relaxed and laid back vibe, we brought in gorgeous organic style blooms, plush blankets and pillows and shareable treats to inspire a bachelorette gathering

YOUR ULITMATE ULTIMATE BACH BA SH. Send off the bride-to-be in style with an Insta-worthy weekend she’ll never forget.

For this, I wanted it to be fun and modern. So, using the wood grain paper tied in the mountain destination for this bachelorette weekend. Small gatherings are fun to work on because you can be creative and take some risks with trends. You want your wedding invitation to be more timeless, but having a fun trend for your besties is a great idea. Jo’s Paper Kitchen

For all three of our ladies’ looks we wanted to showcase our soft but still impactful makeup techniques. When working on a group of girls, we always check with the bride to see what her vision is. All of your bridesmaids may have different styles and ideas and it’s our job to make sure everyone leaves our chair feeling like the best version of themselves but still has a cohesive look that fits the bride’s overall look. Having inspiration photos for your artists is key and then trust that you’re in good hands! Sunkissed & Made Up

“We are loving all things bright and vibrant these days and wanted to enhance the ‘urban’ feel of the rooftop and not fight it. ‘Sex and the City’ and New York were our underlying inspiration for this brunch, because who had a better girlfriend vibe than those hot ladies?!” - Courtney Paddock with Little Coterie

YOUR BRIDAL BABES BRUNCH. Create a bubbly bridal brunch that’s simple and fun with ‘Sunday Afternoon’ looks for the girls - the perfect way to cheers with your besties.

We brought in our signature garden-style look to add a timeless element to the rooftop with fresh emerald greens and clean whites to pop against the coral and aqua tablescape. The arrangements leaned more towards a wildflower look which made for a playful and casual brunch, rather than something more for mal that often gets chosen for weddings. Lanson B. Jones and Co.

gave the traditional pink and lavender colors of spring a new fresh look. Flowers were everywhere, from the lovely cake to the oh-so-dreamy cathedral-length veil. Our bride was too petite for the large, wide bouquets that have been in style so we opted for a more traditional round shape that wouldn’t overwhelm her, keeping the attention on her. Loose and natural hair paired great with natural makeup to keep with the fresh spring look. Floral ‘clouds,’ a planted aisle, acrylic place markers and vintage glassware were all paired together to create an elegant yet on-trend spring wedding!” - Melanie Keown and Karli Himarios with Whimsical Events

Style

YOUR ULTIMATE BRIDAL LOOK. When it comes to saying “I do,” don’t leave anything to chance with a perfectly planned celebration and chic bridal style.

This suite was created for a bride desiring a classic design with an elegant, romantic feel. As guests open the invitations, the first thing they see is a preview of the setting where the bride and groom will exchange their vows. I loved designing an envelope liner that plays off the shape of the envelope while simultaneously incorporating an architectural nod to the unique ceremony site at The Meeker mark. With a minimal color palette for the invitation suite pieces, the design emphasis lies on the textural quality of the handmade deckled edge paper, and the simplistic elegance of the calligraphy elements. A curated set of floral postage stamps was the perfect extra detail to emphasize the bride’s vision for a romantic garden affair. Dreams and Nostalgia

“

We created a planted garden-style aisle design that we repurposed along the front face of the head table. The idea was for the flowers to look like they were growing straight out of the ground! We always work with our brides on ways that they can repurpose pieces from the ceremony into the reception. The dreamy, airy, puffy cloud-like theme is a trend in floral design currently and we used light materials to create an airy and fluffy altar focal piece. We used tones from the color palette to create a color gradient in the altarpiece. The Tallest Tulip

in the details....

I really love the shoot I designed recently at Olde Dobbin

Station. It’s one of the only soft, monochromatic shoots I have ever created, but man, did it come through beautifully on film! Kasey Lynn Photography captured it for us and she did an amazing job interpreting the soft, warm colors and textures against the cool cement walls of the Station Chapel. For the past two years, the trend has been to incorporate more greenery than floral, and I really wanted to experiment with bleached organics. Taylor with Piney Rose Floral did an incredible job of interpreting that idea. Everything about this shoot feels ethereal and fine art. I think it will always be a favorite.

Oh, wow! I have one wedding that really stands out in its color

palette and style – Aariana and Forrest’s wedding at Big Sky Barn. It was a fuchsia and marine color combination and the hot pink flocked chair caps and floral design by Flower Vibes were just to-die-for.

trending... FLOWERS are back! I am so excited to see our clients moving

away from greenery and back to lush, organic floral designs. I am also a huge fan of layered, saturated color and love when clients trust us to work with their florist to create warm and inviting spaces full of personality. Another trend that I am very fond of is mismatched bridesmaid gowns. I think it gives each of their attendants the ability to purchase a gown that fits her personality and budget while adding a very personal design element.

y favorite part of this shoot was seeing all the elements come together. Brides are sometimes afraid of color and we totally took this to the other extreme with all the color. To see how all the brightness came together yet still felt elegant, modern and sexy was really cool. The table itself has to be my absolute favorite table. I will likely mimic this when it is my turn to get married! The striped chairs, fresh fruit and accents of gold, really spoke to my personal style!

O V E R A L L, I W O U L D DESCRIBE MY STYLE AND DESIGN AS TRADITIONAL WITH A F L A I R.

I think we are a company that wants each event to be a

reflection of each couple. We are not trying to replicate a wedding we have seen, or use the same vendors for every event. We truly tailor each wedding to be unique. We are able to find the right combination of vendors to execute each clients needs to its fullest potential. In working with so many great vendors across our city, we have been able to create a network that spans many styles and budgets. Each wedding is like a puzzle, but the pieces are always different. What one client spends more money on or is more important to them, creates different sized pieces. In the end, you get the same flawless, fabulous wedding; but getting there is always different.

This is one of

my favorite weddings to date because of how cohesive the look was for the entire weekend. Their monogram and sleek modern, elegant look was truly a reflection of the couple! They wanted this wedding to feel like a dinner party they were having at their home! Being a destination for both sides of the family, we planned a fun-filled weekend packed with lots of activities. I was able to help with all aspects of that weekend and truly helped design the spaces from the very beginning. Budget was not a hindering factor, so it allowed us to do some new, innovative features like The Grand Bevy! One specific detail that is my favorite is the front entry tables. It was so chic, modern and romantic that I couldn’t stop staring at it all night!

trending... C

olor not only in decor, but other things as well! Wedding dresses, cakes, furniture, linens. Don’t get me wrong, I love a classic white, blush and green wedding, but when a client comes in and says give me all the color, my heart explodes. I think sometimes, clients feel that color can be not romantic or as classic, but I beg to differ. I think if you do it tastefully and in the right ways it can be even more romantic and luxurious.

would happen. Alyssa had a list of venues the next day, assuring me that our wedding day was going to be beautiful and that nothing would prevent us from getting married. She wasn’t wrong – our wedding was perfect and better than we could have ever imagined.” CAITLIN, BRIDE

“We were very selective about our date and chose November ninth because it was the Saturday before Veterans Day. Chase is a Veteran – he spent seven years in the army as an Infantry Officer and completed two tours in Afghanistan – so picking that date was not only a nod to his time in the Army, but also to many of his friends. To mark the significance of the date and Chase’s past, Chase and his groomsmen Caroline Fontenot

wore medals they earned during their time in the service on their tuxedo lapels.” LIZ, BRIDE

“I was adamant that I did not want to do a first look with Jeff before our wedding ceremony. Sure, a first look probably would have calmed our pre-wedding nerves and even allowed us to get some of our pictures out of the way, but Jeff and I both agreed that we wanted to see each other for the first time when I walked down the aisle. I have to say, it did not disappoint! The church doors opened, and I saw Jeff waiting for me at the end of the aisle. I swear my heart stopped and time stood still. It was such a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I will Josh & Dana Fernandez

This was my absolute favorite moment of the evening. Adam and I got to share a few quiet minutes as we contemplated the wonderful day we had so far, and also shared a few private kisses!

One Thing I Learned...

LOOKING BACK ON PLANNING OUR WEDDING, I WOULD SAY THE BIGGEST THING I LEARNED WAS THAT IT REALLY DOES TAKE A VILLAGE! WE HAD THE BEST TEAM TO MAKE OUR DREAM DAY COME TRUE AND I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THEM. I TEND TO WANT TO DO THINGS ON MY OWN AND THE WAY THAT EVERYONE CAME TOGETHER TO MAKE THINGS SEAMLESS MADE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
