Some Talented Ladies at Mint 102!!

I wanted to do a special post today to show the beautiful paper products and invitation set that were designed for my spring styled shoot a few weeks ago.  Sara & Anglea, the girls at Mint 102 Event Branding, did an amazing job designing these beautifully romantic invitation sets for the shoot.  These talented ladies were able to create a lovely pink watercolor background with a fun yet sophisticated font for the wording.  They did such a wonderful job tying the paper products to the spring themed shoot that I planned.  I would say this was the perfect fit, beautiful paper for a beautiful shoot and the team of Mint 102 and SoHo Events!  I can’t wait to work with these ladies again!!

And Then There Were Lights – Edison Bulbs!

One of my most favor types of event lighting (lighting in general, really!) is the ever classic Edison Bulb!  To me, nothing is more classically beautiful than strings of Edison bulbs twinkling in the night!  An Edison bulb can be beautiful on its own simply hanging from the wire, but they can be dressed up with beautiful glass canisters of all shapes and sizes and event light shades around the bulb to emit a stunning glow in the room.  Any way you use you, can’t fail!  They are the perfect touch to make any event magical!

Strings of Edison Bulbs hanging over a ceremony site like this would be stunning!

I love the look of the long bulbs over the reception tables.  Such a different look, but so much fun!

Peeking through the branches!  I love the larger bulbs, makes such a statement!

As I’ve said before, lighting can completely transform a room and is a vital part to a beautiful event!  My big surprise is ready to reveal next week!  I can’t wait to share it with you, it turned out better than I could have hoped for!  The big reveal is going to wonderful!!!!!

Until then,

And Then There Were Lights – Lanterns!

I think lanterns are a trend that is one to stay!  Lanterns are such a cute way to add a pop of color to any event.  If you are having a more casual wedding they are beautiful hanging over your guest tables or your dance floor.  Lanterns are a fun whimsical way to add not only that pop of color to your event, but texture as well. Whether you use the typical paper lantern, the pom lanterns, or the lanterns with graphic print you are sure to enhance your party and add a beautiful focal point on the ceiling!!  So fun!!

I love how the bright florals add that pop to the neutral table.  Then the bright lanterns to match the florals bring your eye to the ceiling and create a beautiful event room!

These white paper lanterns over the dance floor look like starlit evening, perfect to dance the night away!

This mix of sea foam green, blue and white along with the birch lanterns and matching banners is perfect for a beach soiree!

These lanterns are the perfect touch for your lounge area adding a little sparkle to the beach!

This is absolutely breathtaking with the warm glow of the ivory lanterns and the dripping wisteria blooms falling down in between.  Such a romantic feel!

How perfect are these baby showers?!  So precious with the lanterns over the tables!

I have one more lighting post to do this week and I’m saving one of my favorites for last!  I can’t wait to share it with you! What’s been your favorite so far?

Until then-

And Then There Were Lights – Candles!

Candles are the perfect way to add romance to any event!  At every wedding I do, I always urge my brides to add as many candles as possible to add a golden flicker to any space!  You can use candles as centerpieces, on your tables, at your ceremony, around your cake and even outside in the trees!  Candles are so versatile and can be used to match any theme or decor whether its the color of the actual candle, or the candle holder and how it is used in the venue!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use candles!  Enjoy!

I love the pops of Tiffany blue in this monochromatic tablescape!  Adds a flirty, feminine touch to this already elegantly beautiful event!

Who doesn’t love a tall taper to add height to a table?!  Plus the white tapers dripping in crystals with the plush florals is simply stunning!

Here’s another fun way to use tapers that is a bit more rustic and casual.  Such a fun look in the clear wine bottles to add a fun touch to a dinner table!

I love the use of candle holders at different heights in this picture!  Plus the glow from behind the flowers make the whole room glow a beautiful golden white!

Finally, I am obsessed with the suspended votives hanging above the tables.  I think this is such a fun new way to play with candles taking the term “lighting” more figuratively!  It gives the event a more whimsical look, one I can’t wait to use in one of my next events!!!

I have two more of my favorite types of event lighting to share with you this week!  Make sure you come back to see and let me know which is your favorite!

Letterpress Love

Nothing makes me more giddy than beautiful paper.  There is something so wonderful about a gorgeous invitation set with premium paper.  And texture is everything!  Your invitation is the first thing your guests will see and will set the tone for your whole event.  So choosing the perfect design is important, but so is choosing the perfect paper!

Take a look for yourself!

Letterpress adds depth and dimension to a two dimensional product.  Plus the pop of color is always so fun!

Letter press can be simple and clean, or ornate and glamorous!

And nothing says “thank you” better than a beautiful letterpress note!
