Tamera Mowry Get Married Magazine Shoot

We are so excited to finally share with you the Get Married Magazine shoot we designed for Tamera Mowry and her brand new husband, Adam Housely. They were so sweet, ridiculously cute and in love! When Get Married asked me to be a part of the shoot I was so honored, and of course very excited, to work the start of one of my favorite TV shows in the 90′s Sister, Sister. I wanted to design a look that was modern and edgy but still very young, fresh and vibrant to represent this style young couple.

Here is the article that came out in the latest edition of Get Married Magazine out on stands now, make sure to go and get your own copy Brides-t0-be! More detail and design shots to come.

Get a behind the scenes look at my inspiration for this shoot with this Get Married Magazine video clip.

Royal Blue, White and Gold Rancho Santa Fe Wedding Inspiration

We are so excited to finally share with you all of the details that went into this royal inspired Rancho Santa Fe wedding shoot a few months back. Paula from Luna Photography captured the details and opulence so wonderfully we were thrilled! The ever talented Isari Flower Studio helped us to bring punches of bold, sophisticated color and details throughout their florals and bride and groom styling. With elements of luxury, glamor, modernism and even rustic settings, we wanted to showcase our version of ‘royal’ with a young and modern twist. Thank you so much to The Knot and Style Me Pretty for showcasing our work to their precious readers!

With chic modern vases as these flowers become an afterthought

Far too often than not, the flowers for an event or for your home become the star while the vase or vessel they’re displayed in takes a back seat to the peonies their displaying. To me that’s like putting on a gorgeous gown with a pair of ho-hum shoes and accessories. Yes, the gown speaks for itself but loses it appeal as the eyes wander down to the little numbers their planted in. Vases can, and should be, appreciated as the pieces of art and examples of extraordinary design that they are. Albeit not every event will be able to afford such statement pieces for their entire tablescape designs, but why not make a statement in an entry piece or other special location sure to get noticed. From ceramic to wood to wire to hand painted masterpieces, these chic beauty’s definitely stand on their own, even sans fleur!

Red, White & Blue all Summer Long…

The 4th of July has come and gone but with it leaves the lingering pride and love for all things American and beachy. From popsicles, tan lines, ice cold coca colas and vintage Frankie and Annette movies, bringing a bit of classic beach into your summer fetes is always a good thing. Don’t want to go overboard on the red, white & blue? Mix in some yellow for a primary splash of color!

Here are a few tips to mix some Americana Seaside style into your summer soirees:

• Mix in a variety of seersucker pillows for your outdoor lounge

• Serve ice cold coca-cola bottles with red and white striped straws from a tray

• Bring out the Beach Blanket Bingo… for real! Toss some big patterned throws and pillows on the grass or sand for a casual lounge space

• In lieu of classic desserts, have an old-fashioned Popsicle cart come to your event

• On the sand? Don’t forget your paddleball, bocce ball and horseshoe sets! Why not make a tournament out of it?
