Northern Elegance Inspiration

by Faith
We dreamed up this editorial at Calhoun Beach Club with Laura Ivanova Photography filled with shades of gold, powdered blue and white making it the perfect recipe for a warm and inviting inspiration.  For this styled celebration we wanted to incorporate Southern charming traditions while keeping an air of elegance the North is known for.  The Calhoun Beach Club was of course the perfect setting-– with its clean sleek lines, and swanky vibe.
Gretchen Berry Design Co. created a (to-die-for) custom invitation suite adding such a delicate touch. A monogram is also seen throughout: from the paper goods to the two-tier cake. Sadie’s Couture Floral & Event Styling fashioned beautiful bouquets, garlands, and lush centerpieces to create a breathtakingly posh look.

Wine, Dine, & Unwind Welcome Dinner

by Faith

So excited to share this romantic, organic, wine fete that is a featured spread in the latest issue of Minnesota Bride Magazine! When I set out to create this shoot I wanted to provide inspiration to host a fun, relaxed, yet stylish wedding weekend welcome dinner. So grateful to have worked with the talented Laura Ivanova, who captured the details of this project beautifully! We built the design around the elements of Uptown’s full service wine bar, Spill The Wine incorporating a wine tasting and chalkboard details.

The table was dressed perfectly by Dani of Studio Fleurette with a cascading garland of bay and olive branch mix with lush cream and ivory blooms. A bay, sliver dollar eucalyptus, olive branch mix was used to make the show-stopping chandelier! Many thanks to all of the amazing creatives that worked along side us! Be sure to pick up a copy (now on stands), as I share tips on planning an unforgettable rehearsal dinner.
