McQueen – from inspiration to design

Hello there!

Last year, I was lucky enough to drive myself down to the big apple to see McQueen’s breathtaking show at the Met, Savage Beauty. Needless to say, I came out of there my head abuzz with creative ideas. When the Elegant Wedding magazine approached me in the spring to conceptualize a creative shoot for them, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to bring my own vision of McQueen to life.

The magazine is out on newsstands this week, which means that I can finally share all this beauty with you.
Without further a-do, then, here is the dress that started it all:

it’s all in the details

Hello!

This past September, I had the incredible privilege of designing and coordinating the wedding
of a pretty challenging couple. Don’t get me wrong, this bride and groom were absolutely adorable and a pleasure
to work with, but they also knew their stuff, knew what they wanted, and most importantly knew that the stuff they wanted
was a tad different, very thought-through, and very them.

This lovely couple has requested that all vendors involved respect their privacy,
which I very much admire given the intimate nature of a wedding. So, without giving them or any of their guests away,
here are my very favorite detail shots from this affair.

And the incredibly talented lineup of peeps for this wedding was…

Decor: do’s, don’t's, and everything in between

Hello!

It’s officially the gloomiest time of the year. At least for me.
Even with the Holidays right around the corner, I just never could wrap my head around
the sun going down at, like, 3:30 in the afternoon.  So, in order to avoid a bad case of
SAD {seasonal affective disorder}, I’ve vowed to get a lot more zzz and not stay up working so late anymore.
Which totaly blows, because it’s now almost 2 in the morning,
and I’ve just been hit with yet another cool idea of something to blog about.
