On Saturday, November 25th, 2017, my fantastic team of vendors and models descended upon the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Canton, Ohio, for a styled bridal photo shoot.  I have been planning this event for some time.  One of my favorite movies stars Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire – Funny Face.  It’s the only movie they ever made together.  My video partner, Joseph Testa Productions, filmed the whole day, and put together a great video!  We would like to share it with you!

Rose Quartz & Serenity Blue Tablescape

Pantone’s Wedding Colors of 2016 are Rose Quartz & Serenity Blue.  I decided to pull out some of my Grammy’s vintage china, glassware and linens, and create an soft, romantic tablescape.  I also included the cute bracelet I received for Valentine’s Day.

I enjoy trying out new ideas, and designing for my clients.  The possibilities and combinations are endless.  I highly recommend mixing things up! 

I would love to design a fun or romantic setting for your next dinner party, wedding or special event.  Please feel free to contact me anytime!  Enjoy!

 

Classic Elegance – An Inspiration Board

“Everything old is new again”, “vintage”, “retro”, or even “what goes around comes around”.  These are phrases you may hear or think of when it comes to planning a vintage or victorian inspired wedding.  With a simple, yet striking and sophisticated, black and white or ivory color scheme, it goes to show that basic is not boring, and neutrals are never out of style.  In this inspiration board, I have used several accessories, such as the feather fascinator, and the detailed ring pillow, to demonstrate that the smallest details can make a stylish impact.  You could add a pop of bright color to break up the black and white, such as lime green, taxicab yellow, or fushia.  Or you could soften this pallete with the palest shades of pink, blue, or lavender.  The results will be visually arresting, and highly memorable.  Enjoy!!

Vintage Look – Gingham & Milk Glass

Hello Everyone!

I thought I would share an idea for styling a wedding, that I find utterly charming.  Vintage feel weddings are very popular right now, with lots of homemade touches and antique pieces.  One concept I am working with right now is yellow gingham and milk glass.  Yellow is such a cheery color, and great for any affair.  Milk glass items are definitely hot right now, as white pops against the yellow.  Add vintage lace trims such as eyelet, battenburg, and hand crocheted-doilies, and you have a sweet and sentimental setting for a fabulous party.  Below are some examples of this look:

Hope you enjoy this concept, and will be inspired for your own celebration!

Modern Victorian - An Inspiration Board

 

I love vintage and Victorian styles.  They are very romantic, and if I could decorate my whole life like this, well, I would be in heaven.  But this is only one theme in the world of weddings and events.  There are many other influences that can make up your personal wedding style.  For this inspiration board, I used elements that had a vintage feel, but are modern at the same time.  Enjoy!!
