I absolutely love everything about this hyper-local Brooklyn shoot…the vendors took the inspiration from Glasserie and translated it perfectly for this bridal inspiration.  Scroll down for more information on the shoot!

Greenpoint wedding

This Brooklyn styled shoot is full of eclectic and geometric inspiration. Glasserie’s incredible mint green diamond wallpaper against dark wood floors and industrial design inspired a palette of muted colors paired with soft textiles and geometric shapes. We utilized natural fabrics paired with ceramics and touches of brass to create layers of texture and color throughout the shoot. Rather than work with a single designer for the women’s attire, we paired modern, edgier pieces from Titania Inglis with the soft, romantic work of Alexandra Grecco. Our beautiful DIY yarn and tassle ceremony backdrop was created by designer Michelle Bablo with gorgeous pieces from Adaptations for our tablescape and lounge area.

This shoot was also hyper-local and exclusively features vendors who live/work in the Greenpoint & Williamsburg neighborhoods of Brooklyn. We could all walk home once we were done!

Miami Meets Mid-Century Modern

Situated on one of the most iconic beaches in the world The James Royal Palm in Miami Beach hosted this mid-century inspired shoot. While I specialize mostly in wedding stationery and paper goods, I also love to style and art direct. The goal was to showcase my design aesthetic, and love for mid-century and contemporary designs. I felt it was important to stay true to the dynamic and culture that is unique to Miami. Another major source of inspiration for the shoot was Ray and Charles Eames, husband and wife-duo, furniture designers.

Charles Eames was once said “At all times, love and discipline have led to a beautiful environment and good life.” I believe in this quote whole-heartedly, as this is something I put into practice everyday in the studio.

The majority of the shoot took place in the South Shore Lounge and Florida Cookery Patio.
We were also fortunate enough to have a special dish prepared by the talented team at FCP.

Honeymoon staycation ideas

I love getting well styled photoshoots in my inbox….I feel like they can capture a new idea really well, and show brides how it can be accomplished.  This one comes thanks to Erica from Tinsel & Twine….I’ll let her explain!  Thanks Erica!

The theme of this photoshoot is a Honeymoon Staycation. We imagined a sweet couple with enough love and wanderlust between them to fill a New York City apartment … but just not the funds to go somewhere far, far away.

We chose a variety of complementary colors, shapes, and textures, but kept our table purposefully imperfect. Each placesetting was dressed with a collection of travel-related accessories like vintage binoculars, passports, and sculptural globes.  To add to the homespun feel of the decor, we created a mobile installation of fanned tissue paper and newsprint.

We also DIY’d a multi-colored cloth and yarn rope to snake down the length of the table. Rather than adding flowery plant-life, we decked the table with hearty airplants anchored in bowls of red beans that hint at some place exotic and tropical. To tie the story together, each placesetting holds a mock boarding pass that doubles as a love note.

We are so proud of our fabulous intern, Natasha Melo, for leading this photoshoot. And of course, we could not have pulled this fun shoot together without the help of our awesome “dream team” made up of the following talented people:

Photography:  You Go, I Go, We Go Photography
Gowns:  Alexandra Grecco
Hair:  Dominique Clark
Make-up:  Melissa Cunillera
