Katherine & Cam ~ 07.17.10 ~ St. Petersburg, FL

November 17, 2010

Planner/Coordinator: Sandy Rule
Photographer: Aaron Lockwood
Florals & Decor: conceptBAIT
Lighting: Bay Stage Lighting
Catering: Olympia Catering
Reception Venue: Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, FL

It’s hard to choose just one favorite detail of this wedding. First: I absolutely adored working with Katherine and her family for the second time — view Katherine’s sister Kristen’s wedding in Nov. 2009 here — they are creative, think-outside-the-box folks. We spent many afternoons kicking around fun ideas in my studio or having “what if…?” conversations via email. Second: the venue selection, color scheme, decor and lighting are true masterpieces of creativity and execution. Third: the invitations and stationery truly set the tone for the day, and how clever are the mini-canvas escort cards?

I developed an even deeper appreciation for event planners, decor, lighting and photography folks during the setup of this wedding — yes, I hung out at the museum for most of the day to witness firsthand the transformation, an astounding turnaround of just 2 hours because the museum doesn’t close early for private events. But that experience will be the subject of another blog post entirely.

Planner/Coordinator: Shannon Wilson, Table 6 Productions
Photographer: Ryan Joseph

Reception Venue: Palma Ceia Country Club, Tampa, FL

This is a true southern charm wedding, complete with soft details, gorgeous florals, and abundant food, all captured beautifully by photographer Ryan Joseph. The couple’s save the date announcements, wedding invitations and ceremony programs featured a soft green cabbage rose illustration and classic champagne typography. A true example of “less is more” design.

Lily & Tim ~ 07.17.10 ~ Vermont

November 1, 2010

I’ve been quite anxious to blog the detail shots from this beautiful summer wedding in Chester, Vermont. We had a great time collaborating with Lily and her cousin Amanda (as in, the fabulous Amanda Allen with MMD Events, lucky bride, having an uber-talented event designer in the family!).

I had a very difficult time choosing which photos to post, there were so many wonderful shots to choose from. The extremely talented Jeff of K&K Photography has the ability to make you feel as if you were really there and feeling every emotion right alongside the subjects, in both the most intimate and celebratory moments. A rare talent indeed.

The reception took place at the beautiful Castle Hill Resort & Spa in Cavendish.

Big Weekend for The Dressing Room!

One of the things we love most about working on weddings is getting to know our clients and their families.

The wedding, impeccably coordinated by Sandy Rule Events and beautifully photographed by Phillip Lloyd, was stylish, sophisticated and filled with laughter and love. We wish the very best to Dana and Chris on their new life together!

Pink and orange is one of my favorite color combinations — I’m not sure if it’s because I live in a tropical area, or because I’m just a girly-girl — but seeing those colors together always bring me happiness and joy. I hope it does the same for you as you view the fantastic photography and detail shots by Jason Angelini. Simply Divine Events and their team of vendors did such a fantastic job coordinating and designing this beautiful wedding.

I love the colors and style of this wedding, expertly designed and coordinated by Simply Divine Events. The Davis Islands Garden Club is the perfect venue for their color palette of green, orange and yellow. Talk about attention to detail: the flowers on the cake matched the floral motif we designed for the save-the-date announcement and formal wedding invitation. While some guests may not make the connection, it’s those personal touches that make a wedding special and unique. More photos can be found at photographer Carrie Wilde’s blog.

Working with a clients like Daron is especially heartwarming because she has a deep appreciation for quality stationery, and truly embraced the notion that the invitation sets the tone for the event. The color palette of soft pink, chocolate brown and shimmery white translated beautifully to the 6×9 Booklet-style invitation, as well as the menus, table cards and ceremony programs. A special thank you Jason Angelini for the beautiful photography! More images from this beautiful wedding can be found at Jason Angelini’s Blog.

I love, I mean LOVE, this wedding. The bride was fantastic to work with, her colors and style were fun yet very elegant, and thanks to a team of extremely talented wedding professionals, I’ve got the gorgeous photography to prove it. Shannon has the keen ability to place unexpected and clever details into her events, like the round escort cards tied to the stem of martini glasses. Marvelous!
