Lustrous Sophistication: A Styled Wedding

Inspiration For Your Modern Wedding

 

 

 

Before we head out of the office to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, we wanted to share with you some amaze-balls modern wedding inspiration. This styled wedding will have you running to the nearest store and buying all the Scandavian-type décor (same here- no judgement).

From the feature on 100 Layer Cake: “…many engaged couples are influenced by their past travels, [the concept designers] wanted to bring the idea of a trip to Iceland back home, in a fresh artful way.” LH Photography, Revel Co., and Eleven Note did just that! Subtle details were brought to life with ethereal paper, structural bouquets, and modern furniture rentals.

We might be a little biased because modern, minimal design is kind of our jam right now– but, this concept team hit it out of the park and brought this venue (Lakehouse) to life. Also, we’re going to need those pixel tubes from DJ Jacob Co. added to our office asap! Kthanks. 

Enough of our ramblings… here’s the good stuff! After you’ve watched the stunning video by Rad Red Creative- scroll down to view some stunning photos from the shoot. We’ve also linked the 100 Layer Cake feature below, as well as, the vendor list! You’re welcome 🙂

Read More About Our Fall 2018 Lookbook

We’re hooked on a *fall* feeling

We love new things! That’s why Fall is such a fun time of year!

  •      New colors *our favorite color is 100% Quetzal Green*

That’s why we decided to do something new: creating a special lookbook just for you! This lookbook was inspired by blending our products, new and old, and the wonderful *feelz* you get when you think of fall. If you’re curious about how this lookbook came to be- read along! Maybe you can’t contain your excitement, then… click here!

We developed our lookbook for a couple of reasons. One: we wanted to showcase our products, duh! Two: we wanted that showcasing to be up to date with the ever-changing trends and of course… the season! Three: we wanted to give attention to the little guy: intimate gatherings!

Our inspiration for this look came from family gatherings around the dinner table. What’s fall without loved ones and lots of food!? Speaking of family, we also took some inspo from our favorite “Fixer Upper” couple! We fell in love with a teal {Quetzal green if we’re getting Pantone official} Hearth & Hand table runner- which we used as the base for our design!

 

We put our whole heart into this new lookbook and we’re very proud of the result! Hopefully, you love it as much as we do. Special thanks to the Art & History Museums – Maitland and Bluegrass Chic for collaborating with us!

Fall Color Palette Inspiration

Pantone Color Report Fall 2018

 

 

We get so giddy with the thought of Fall… Especially when us Floridians spend most of the year on the surface of the sun. Yes we’re being dramatic, but it’s also somewhat true. One of the things we love most about Fall are the color palettes, because at the base of every great design is a perfectly matched color scheme!

In this blog, we’re serving up some Fall color palette inspiration along with the intention behind each hue.

If you’ve been around the block, you know that each year Pantone releases their top picks for seasonal colors. This momentous occasion could definitely be considered the event industry’s NFL/NBA draft. 

It’s so exciting to see what colors we may get to play with throughout the year, as they catch the eyes of our clients. 

Institute Press characterized Pantone’s picks for Fall 2018 as: “Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise.” Now that sounds like a romance novel- so color us ready for a stroll through the forest.

While this doesn’t look like a “traditional Fall color palette” we love its opportunity for unique looks. After all, self-expression is always in style!

 


 

 

Red Pear: Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.

Valiant Poppy: Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure.

Nebulas Blue: Reminiscent of twilight, a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.

Ceylon Yellow: Savory and spicy yellow adds an exotic touch.

Martini Olive: Smooth, sophisticated and urbane green adds depth to the Fall/Winter 2018 palette.

Russet Orange: This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.

Ultra Violet (Color of the year!): Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.

Crocus Petal: A cultivated and refined hue adds a light and airy spring-like feeling demand.

Limelight: Animated and effervescent, a pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.

Quetzal Green (Our personal fav!): A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.

Modern Bohemian Wedding Inspiration

A Modern Bohemian [Rhapsody]

 

 

We’ve got modern bohemian vibes on the brain!

Recently, we took part in a modern bohemian wedding inspiration photoshoot at the gorgeous Art & History Museum- Maitland. This venue is jam-packed with old-world charm and Mayan Revival architecture from the 1940’s. Melanie Paige Events was inspired by the grounds, and transformed the Chapel and Courtyard space into a modern-boho dream!

 

Details

Bohemian design meets acrylic details with this ceremony and reception set up. Our ghost chairs have a weightlessness to them, allowing the architecture to speak for itself, while creating a modern & cool effect. For the tablescape, our 8ft acrylic table kept things from appearing heavy as it was adorned with floral and geometric charger plates from Treasury Rentals. Our ghost chairs were transitioned from the ceremony space to the mock reception, keeping a consistent look.

 

To infinity and beyond!

We are absolutely in love with how our Infinity arch was transformed! While it’s beautiful on its own, we can’t help but be obsessed with the hanging pieces and statement floral.

And can we talk about the dress for a moment?! The fringe, wow. The crochet / lace detailing, WOW. Stunning!

 

The takeaway:

Boho vibes aren’t all teepee’s and deserts. You can truly make this design style you’re own- especially being in Florida, where there are no deserts… obviously. We love the idea of mixing in modern details because it’s like you’re getting the best of both worlds! The key to a bohemian [rhapsody] is a care-free attitude and some fringe (which never hurt anyone!). 

 

 

Check out some of the photos from this ‘shoot, below!

Mini Styled-Shoot • Santorini Meets Vintage

From Pin-spiration to Real-Life Perfection

Earlier this week we were pinning away when we came across some gorgeous images (see collage below). We felt immediately transported to the island of Santorini. Of course, we imagined the fresh produce, beautiful homes and breathtaking views. All we wanted to do was hop on a plane and head to Greece. So we did! Just kidding, but we took those greek vibes and transformed them into our own fresh “tablescape” – well actually a “desk-scape” if we’re being literal. We used the Blue Collection from our Vintage Mismatched China in combination with some other vintage pieces. The royal blue and stark white contrasted perfectly, for a fun and fresh look you’re sure to love.

 

 

 

In conclusion… we need a trip to Santorini ASAP. Until then, we’ll just stare at these photos all day long and simply pretend we’re there!

1920’s-esque, Dark and Moody Wedding Inspiration

“Don’t mess with the Peaky Blinders!”

 

Alright Lads… While it’s not Birmingham, the Howey Mansion fit the role perfectly of being the backdrop for this brooding, Peaky Blinders inspired styled-shoot. Can we say that, For the Love of Events nailed this flapper-era theme?! There are so many great elements that they brought together, from the candlesticks to our black king louis chairs. Not to mention, we’re big fans of the show so we sorta geeked out a bit when they came to us with their vision. Paying homage to Grace and Tommy’s wedding from the show, coordinators April + Amanda opted for vintage décor with roaring 20’s mementos.  

 

 

– If you keep up with WeddingWire’s 2018 Wedding Trends Report then you’ll know that dark and moody color palettes will be HUGE this fall, so Pin this blog to your wedding inspiration board because we’re expecting a surge of 1920’s vibes this upcoming Fall wedding season.
