Urban Wed event recap no.2

Barb and her team from Hatch Creative Studio really made the entire loft look spectacular with flowering branches and a beautiful tablescape.  My favorite were the mossy silhouettes framed on the wall and the wine glasses filled with flowers!

Swirl Events took care of the wine for the evening, offering samples of what an evening with one of their wine tasting specialists would be like…they’re great for bachelorette and bridal shower parties.  Thanks to Seven Sisters for providing the wine!

Presenting…Urban Wed!

I’m so excited to finally get to share what I’ve been working on the past couple months!  After taking into account your feedback from my survey a few months ago, Urban Wed is my take on the “bridal event”, but on a smaller, more intimate scale.  10 amazing vendors over 2 nights…it should make for a fun time! Tickets will be available through Eventbrite, and you can check the Urban Wed blog for more info as it comes!

Name: Minhee Cho

Location: New York City

Company: Paper+Cup Design

What is your aesthetic?: Simple + Modern designs with a vintage twist

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? We mixed vintage furniture with modern ones

Favorite part of your studio?: Our wall unit, we have a tiny space and it’s perfect to store all our paper work as well as have space for displaying our work.

Where do you go for inspiration?: Visiting flea markets, watching old movies and taking walks around the city with Tru

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without?: My computer and my craft tools like the xacto, ruler and cutting mat

Is there anything you’d upgrade to?: We have access to a small roof deck right outside one of our windows, I would love to fix it up so we can hang out or do some of our meetings out there.

Anything else we should know?: I’m a big pack rat and Tru is super organized, neat and tidy. I try to be that way but find it stifles my creativity! So he lives with all the scraps of paper and found objects all over the office that I consider my little treasures.

The Wedding Party recap

This weekend Anne and I hit the Wedding Party event at the Palace Hotel, sponsored by the Wedding Library and Elegant Bride magazine.  It was a great chance to catch up with all my favorite vendors, and discover a couple of new ones at the same time.  Above are some dresses from Lela Rose’s Amsale‘s new bridesmaids line.

These dresses were a sight to see! Designed by British designer Sam Walls Beasley of Samuelle [who is now located in Brooklyn!!], each dress is completely couture…she will work with you from the very beginning to design a gorgeous, custom made wedding dress that no one else will have!

The fabulous dessert table by Amy Atlas Events and a sneak peak at a cake from One Girl Cookies…the piping and blue color were so precious!

Invitations above by Paper+Cup Designs…I always love seeing them in person and getting to get a real sense of all the special little details that go into each one.  Below is Mr. Boddington‘s maypole of gorgeousness.

Flowers above by Blade….a perfect arrangement yellow and grey, and below some striking jewel tones by Fleurs.
