My Design Work on Style Me Pretty!

Yesterday was a pretty great day! I couldn't stop smiling with I saw the styled wedding shoot, that myself and a group of seven other talented women created, live on Style Me Pretty. We did the shoot a little over a week ago and it was picked up to be published right away, which was very exciting! Style Me Pretty receives over 400 submissions per week so to be featured is certainly an honor!

I was passionate about the concept of this shoot. I love modern styling and as the event/concept designer, I saw this as an opportunity to push myself to create something different and fun. Our vision was crisp, modern and pink with a focus on geometric patterns. I had a great time diy-ing table runners and napkins, painted plates and gold dipped silverware. I'll be back another day with some tips for creating them yourself!

I had a unbelievably talented team of wedding vendors to work with and everything came together seamlessly.
