KATE SPADE INSPIRED STYLED SHOOT

Submitted by: Love, Laughter & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning

What was your design inspiration?

I have always loved Kate Spade‘s style. Timeless, elegant, chic. I have wanted to put together a styled photo shoot with some of her signature colors for a while now. I try to put a unique spin on all of my themes when I am designing for a photo shoot or my clients. This time, I added a black and white checked pattern to the mix. It added a quaint country touch to a sophisticated style, and made it absolutely adorable!

Describe your flowers.

The flowers were a mixture of fresh and silk blooms. The cake had two small cascades of fresh fuschia tea roses, raspberry mini carnations, and hypericum berries. The silk arrangements on the cake table included silk blush peonies and roses in vintage glass bottles. The silk floral centerpiece on the dining table featured large white magnolias, fuschia dahlias, blush peonies, and white jasmine blossoms. The gorgeous bridal bouquet and boutonniere were created by Linda Silvestri, of Fleur Wedding Bouquets. They featured colorful silk flowers, pink pearls, and black and white checkered ribbon to match our theme.

Describe your cake.

The delicate, single-tier cake was a homemade vanilla bean cake, frosted in vanilla buttercream, and covered in two small cascades of fresh flowers.

Tell us about your attire choices.

I wanted to keep the bridal look for our model, Sammy, very sweet and simply elegant. She wore an understated brilliant white gown, with an embroidered bodice, and organza floor length skirt. We added extra fullness with an additional crinoline. The black and white checkered blouse, tied over the top of the gown, added a relaxed sophistication to the overall look. We had two different pairs of shoes, one being a sparkly gold heel, and the other being an adorable pair of hot pink and white polka dot pumps.

Please describe any handmade, DIY, or personal items.

The colorful paper pinwheels that were hanging above the cake table were created by Melissa Walker. The black and white pinwheels were made of printed sheet music, and the hot pink ones had printed centers that read “pop, fizz, clink”. Very whimsical and playful.

The gorgeous bridal bouquet and boutonniere were created by Linda Silvestri, of Fleur Wedding Bouquets. They featured colorful silk flowers, pink pearls, and black and white checkered ribbon to match our theme.

Describe the tablescape elements.

The dining table was draped in a hot pink linen, with a striking black and white striped table runner. The centerpiece was created with three gold and glass open lanterns of varying sizes and large pillar candles. Surrounding the lanterns there were silk magnolias, dahlias, peonies, and jasmine blooms. The table settings consisted of square plates and bowls with a simple black design and black napkins. We added two Kate Spade embroidered dinner napkins at the place settings of the newlyweds. The antique silverware and glassware are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate collection, as are the chairs at the dining table.

The cake table, which we placed on the front porch of the Spring Hill home, was covered in a bright white linen and topped with a large black and white checkered tablecloth. We added the small homemade wedding cake on a glass pedestal plate, and cake knife set, tied with black and white polka dot bows. Also placed on the table were fuschia napkins, gold-rimmed champagne flutes, and soft silk florals. The small, antique dessert plates and silverware are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate collection.

STARRY NIGHT INSPIRED STYLED SHOOT

Submitted by  Love, Laughter & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning

What was your design inspiration?

I have long wanted to do a starry night theme. Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting plays well along with this. The mood was to be ethereal, light, sparkling and romantic. A little bit of heaven on earth, if you will.

Describe your flowers.

I wanted to use a mostly white floral scheme, with a hint of blue and silver. My florist created lush, gorgeous bouquets and a centerpiece featuring white anemone, white hydrangea, scabiosa, waxflower, white veronica, dusty miller, and peonies. The flowers were a bright contrast against the navy and silver table linens and formal dresses. The flowers were also to be reminiscent of groups of stars.

Describe your cake.

The cake that Gearhart Custom Cakes created is absolutely gorgeous! It is a four-tier cake, with the bottom layer hand painted in silver.  The top 3 tiers are covered in sparkling navy blue edible glitter. Each tier is defined by a band of bling. The topper is a custom acrylic piece made especially for this project, to finish the cake beautifully.

Tell us about your attire choices.

The attire for this styled shoot was so glamorous! The bridal gown and starry overskirt were custom-made for this shoot by Nidel Dresses in Louisiana. It is a modified trumpet gown with a strapless, sweetheart neckline, and corset back. The removable overskirt features a jeweled belt, and layers of starry fabric. Light and flowy, and simply gorgeous! The cathedral length ombre blue bridal veil was from Over the Moon Bridal in Washington state. The dark blue bridesmaid gown was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs in Hartville, Ohio. The designer is Madeline Gardner for Mori Lee. It is a floor length gown with allover lace and sequins. Very sparkly!

The gentlemen wore stylish suits of their own. The groom’s dark blue tie, pocket square, and pocket watch were all provided by Groomsday. The groomsman’s silver bow tie was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs.

Describe any handmade, DIY or personal items.

The jewelry provided by LivyLynn Vintage is handmade and very unique. Their collection is eclectic and matched our bride’s fun-loving personality.

The dark blue gauze table runner on the outdoor tablescape was custom made and hand-dyed especially for this shoot by Thistle and Twill. There are little white flecks in the material of the runner, that are reminiscent of stars twinkling in the night sky.

Describe the tablescape elements.

We had three tablescapes for this shoot:

The indoor tablescape was created on the 200-year old dining table and chairs, which are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate. We used the navy blue satin tablecloth and napkins, and the navy diamond overlay, from L’nique Linens. The silver luxe charger plates are also from L’nique Linens. The china, silverware, and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The floral centerpiece was created by Alyssa Schlegel, and we used the gold cake topper from Ever Laser to complete the look. The favors are blue and silver wrapped Hershey’s Kisses, placed in small tulle gift bags printed with silver stars.

The cake table was located in the formal parlor of Spring Hill. The table was covered in the navy blue satin tablecloth and the silver medallion sheer overlay from L’nique Linens. The gorgeous four-tier navy blue and silver cake was provided by Gearhart Custom Cakes. The silver mirrored acrylic cake topper was made by Traditions Engraving. We also placed blue and silver star-shaped votive candles around the table for extra sparkle.

The third tablescape was placed outdoors on the terraced lawn of the Spring Hill home. Dining al fresco under the stars was the order of the evening for our couples. The table was draped in navy blue satin, with a silver sequin table runner and navy blue napkins. The china, silverware and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The centerpiece is the same one that was used on the indoor tablescape. We changed out the cake topper to a different silver one created by Traditions Engraving, The heavy pewter candlesticks were added to provide illumination into the evening hours.
