Your the Apple of my Eye

22 Jan

Pulling together photo shoots is one of the great perks of being a designer and planner. I love coming together with my favorite vendors to create visual eye candy that will hopefully inspire clients and future wedding couples. We worked with a stellar team to produce a fall Apple inspired shoot which has graced the pages of Virginia Bride Magazine, Virginia Wedding Locations Magazine, United with Love, and Destination I Do Blog.

pajamas and pancakes 1st birthday

12 Dec

Showing off a special first birthday that was featured on Onto Baby earlier this year. Instead of a more traditional theme we wanted to make fun with our idea to have everyone come over for brunch and do “Pancakes in Pajama’s”. We used shades of blue in ombre scale and a reoccurring set of shapes in banners and dots to keep things cohesive.  For the littlest guests they were given swag boxes full of games and treats to make sure everyone felt included when the birthday boy opened gifts. For the quintessential smash cake, a multi-tiered inside out cake was made which hysterically Jackson would not have anything to do with. This was so much fun to plan and I look forward to years of more birthday parties for this handsome fella. (I know! I’m biased!) Big thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for these amazing photos!

20 Feb

I want to share my all time favorite dessert table that we have created. It was inspired by vintage post cards and the soft Parisian colors of mint, blush, and cream. There is something so soft and romantic about those colors and I wanted to pair them with equally delicate desserts such as Macaroons, and petite fours, and chocolate dipped marshmallow puffs. These gorgeous photos were taken by Procopio Photography and the wonderful labels and graphics were designed by Mary Coppola Design . Enjoy!
