I absolutely LOVE doing styled photo shoots with super talented teams of vendors. I'm always honored to participate in them, and this gorgeous shoot is no exception!
The idea behind this shoot was to present a fun, fresh color palette in two different ways. In the photos to follow, the same colors are presented in two different styles: modern and traditional. It just goes to show that design elements can transform the look and feel of a wedding or event dramatically, even if the colors are the same!
The modern design uses unique fonts, fun typography, along with graphic and geometric design elements. The wording is also a bit cheekier and fresh, which conveys a sense of playfulness without taking away from the elegance of the setting. This design style would suite a couple wanting a wedding with a funky edge and personality!
The traditional design uses more romantic, calligraphy-inspired fonts paired with ornate frames and classic design elements. The wording is more formal and classic, which adds to the regality of the setting and tablescape!
Thank you so much to the wonderful team of vendors that chose to include my work in this shoot! I think everything looks amazing, and I am so proud to have been a part of it!

Plaza Hotel New York
This styled shoot encompasses all the glamour and elegance that any girl has ever dreamed of. The crew of vendors involved first picked the location, the ever-fabulous Plaza Hotel in NYC, which set the tone for the whole story. Stacie Shea Events and Carmen Santorelli tried to create their own fairy tale with just the right amount of sparkle, opulence and romance. The breathtaking Ines di Santo gowns (Neige and Amour), gracefully provided by Bridal Reflections, were the perfect mix of dramatic and romantic. Erica Ogawa did her magic with the makeup and hair. Karen of Splendid Stems created the most amazing floral designs. She used hydrangea, anemones, orchids, astilbe, bunny tail celosia, oak ivy and spirea branches. The linens were so opulent that she did not want to compete with them, but instead enhance them with modern, free-form elegance that included some old world romance to celebrate the historic Plaza Hotel. I created the invitations and all of the paper items, and Jessica Haley’s spectacular calligraphy work makes me wish I had her talent.
Sugar Flower Cake Shop created all of cake and desserts, and I was blown away by the beauty and deliciousness of her creations. For the main wedding cake, they wanted to create a contrast between the softness of the pink/peach/cream flowers and the bronze tones of the sugar decor, while maintaining an overall opulence within a clean and simple design. Even though the main cake they used for the shoot was faux, they envisioned it to be an almond cake, layered with strawberry purée and cream filling, iced with our lemon buttercream. To continue the pink and copper color scheme, they used a lot of almond and raspberry in the dessert table.
I was honored to be part of this shoot featured on Style Me Pretty and many other wedding publications. Thanks to the team for including me!
How fun is this pink-red, white, and blue shoot from Heather Roth Fine Art Photography? Just in time to celebrate Presidents Day, Becky Huffman Flowers and Kristin Ashley Events joined forces to show these vintage Americana wedding ideas.
Ticking-striped linens and lush pink, blue, and white flowers fill a rustic but sophisticated table that softly chants USA! The bouquet idea is beautiful—shades of pink, blue, and white wrapped in silk and tied with a trail of ribbon streamers. A rustic dessert table filled with treats from Britt Beaugard is picture-perfect in front of an old barn. By far my favorite part is the fashion: Bella Bridesmaid dresses paired with a vintage peach frock with a tulle skirt—simply fab!
