from the event planner and designer… “I am always up for a challenge and I challenged myself with this styled shoot. Steering away from the shabby chic style I typically like to do and I did something completely different. My goal in regards to the style was to combine elements of minimalism, the industrial look and tossed organic look together. Overall the look isn’t crowded and there is room to breathe. The rentals were simple and imperfect. Ashley, my wonderful calligrapher did a wonderful job keeping the paper goods simple and clean. Apart from the venue having the industrial look I incorporated that element through the metal pieces of furniture. My choice of linen for the sweetheart table was a soft, breathable and textured fabric that organically rested on the floor. I gave the napkins a tossed look to give the table an additional relaxed element.”

“Continuing with the organic style, my amazing florists created natural garden style arrangements that perfectly tied into the shoot. The bride’s dress and hair also reflected that effortless and laid back look. The colors palette was inspired by fall. However I wanted to do a look that could be done anytime of the year. Rather than having the look scream fall, I wanted it to softly elude the fall colors and tones. Thuy and Nikki, the florists, did a great job lightly including fall leaves and fall colors in the arrangements. They also added some seasonal fruit which was so beautiful! I played off of that idea by also adding the golden pears that also gave the tablescape a touch of fall. So while the fall colors are still there, they are toned down and soft, giving the overall shoot a much more mature look.”

“I also liked the idea of having a sharp contrast by adding black to the color scheme in order to create dimension and depth. Having the black touches allows the soft warm colors to really pop. Which leads me to my model, I was thrilled to come across Liza! Her warm hair color and skin tone perfectly fit in with the look we were going for! My sweet Macaron baker also played with this warm and dark color palette by providing cute and absolutely delicious cookies. Additionally I liked the idea of incorporating mixed metals to continue the industrial look. The metals ranged from bronze, gold, silver, copper and brass. My talented make up artist Elona was able to perfectly tie the mixed metals into the makeup which I was really happy about! The cake artists also blew me away with how perfectly they combined the organic look, mixed metal idea, minimalism and industrialism. Basically, I had the ultimate dream team and a photographer who captured this fun and beautiful day so well. I always say, beautiful things happen outside of your comfort zone. But also, beautiful things happen when artists come together.”
