purple perfection: an inspirational shoot

I am so excited. Thanks to Yellow Diamond Events and Kristen La Voie Photography  another summer project completed! I am very happy to share the gorgeous photos from their inspirational shoot! It turned out beautiful! Every last detail was perfect – my favorite being the little cookie cakes by Luscious Layers Bakery! Honestly, how cute are those?! The flowers were great as well, the arrangements by Life in Bloom. I was lucky enough to participate – my stationary was featured! Had a blast creating the print materials to match this rustic, yet polished wedding shoot! Enjoy the photos! Hoping to work with these talented people in the near future!

I wish all my invitations were accompanied by beautiful flowers!

The invites turned out great! Floral, floral, floral! I also love, love, love the photo on the right. The lighting and placement is MAGICAL!

I Still can’t get over the teeny desserts! UHM, YUM! Love the cork detail cards too!

SO beautiful, right?! The soft lighting and various shades of purple are enchanting! I love all the rustic touches, like the wine corks, branches, and mason jars. They look perfect with the chic, iridescent, wine glasses (which i am totally lusting after) and the matching plates! Can’t wait to see what else is in store for Yellow Diamond Events!

Sweet Spring Stripes + Flowers

Spring wedding set, check! I’ve appropriately named my latest collection Sweet Spring Stripes and Flowers due to it’s whimsical appearance. We went with something playful, but not too cutesy. Something different, but not too out there. Something simple, but still fun! I was told to incorporate stripes (I guess the groomsmen are wearing striped ties and the girls have stripes in their dresses) with pink tulips and peach daisies. Floral, Floral, Floral! I couldn’t be happier with how this double sided, card stock set came out! I tied them up with a tiny polka dot ribbon, and a peach envelope to complete the look. Oh so sweet!

hydrangea invites

I had some time this week to spit out some upcoming summer wedding invites for a friend of a friend. Her flowers are mostly going to be green hydrangeas, and she wanted that to be the look of the invite – can’t go wrong with floral! I love hydrangeas (personally drawn to the white ones) but naturally I had a blast with these – a no brainer! One of my good friends had these flowers in her wedding bouquets a few years ago, so I dug up some photos from her beautiful wedding (sniff, sniff) and found I had some first hand inspiration! The greens are so beautiful! I tried them on the last of the linen paper I had, and while I love linen, I’m going to try some cardstock for a little brighter color! To the paper store I’ll go (look out!) The navy envelopes look really great (her other color) with the bright green (and against my new tile!) and they will all be tied together with a matching satin ribbon. Love it! I also might try to talk her into some simple white envelope liners depending on the paper she chooses, because I’m a geeky paper lover like that! Can’t wait to start on the rest of my summer wedding projects – I hope they’re as enjoyable as these!

super easy, super cute! diy calla lily centerpieces

For starters, calla lilies are SO beautiful. So simple and elegant, and perfect! We picked the mango color for a fall reception, but they come in such a large variety of colors, they can be easily matched to any occasion! (thinking about it, I’d really love to do this with pink callas for a spring wedding, or yellow for a summer party…) anyway, I had seen a similar idea online, but added a few more cute details, and I’d have to say I loved how they turned out!

Depending on the size of the event, you’re gonna need quite a few wine bottles… SO GET DRINKING! We had 16 small tables and wanted 3 or 5 bottles at each table. So basically, I gave everyone I knew a drinking problem, and happily collected over 120 bottles (OK, OK most of them came from a friend who manages a bar…) but then I got creative with it, and tried to find the most interesting green bottles I could find: Perrier bottles, 40 oz beer bottles, champagne bottles, and olive oil bottles – you name I got it! The size differences really made them unique. I took the labels off by soaking them overnight in warm water and then scraping them with a razor. Most came off really easily, but for the tough ones – goo gone did the trick!

We ordered the calla lilies from a whole-saler, it’s much cheaper, and really there was no need for a florist! Along with the flowers curly willow  was added – which has become my new infatuation – I want to do all sorts of crafts with this stuff! I cut the smaller branches and put them into the wine glasses – which really gave them an artistic look! I unfortunately didn’t have time to take any pictures once the reception started, but I know somebody did – so more to come! I also added some gold confetti pieces and tea lights to the tables, and they looked fabulous! Picture soft lighting with a little sparkle! The extra bottles were lined up against this window with a random flower every few bottles, and we added a few picture frames of the bride and groom in between them. It looked so nice! I was very proud of our all our efforts!
