Every once in a while I have the privilege to work on projects that are much more than just styling, I'm asked to help create a backdrop for a major life event. Such was the case with this wedding I recently styled for an adorable couple in Northern California...and today it's featured on Style Me Pretty!
The bride wanted to incorporate many pieces she had inherited from her grandmother -- vintage suitcases, jars of buttons, embroidered hankies, hundreds of antique hardbound books and little figures of rabbits and birds. During our first meeting, I was like a kid in a candy shop!
The whole concept was very much about family heirlooms, the nostalgia of weddings gone-by and incorporating the beautiful pastel colors of a summer's night.
I had an amazing team who were absolute rockstars (thank you, thank you!) -- can you believe I asked for every single one of the taper candles to not only have burnt tips, but to also have "drips"? Yes, that was my creative direction; drips.
The photographer Jesse Leake and his team beautifully captured the event from just before the guests arrived to the very last dance. While the florist Lila B Designs and her team executed absolutely charming bouquets and arrangements.
