styled photoshoot : something gold, something blue

earlier this spring we teamed up with an amazing group of industry friends to put together this detailed and lovely if i say so myself, styled shoot.  all this loveliness and more can be spotted on


when the shoot was published a few weeks ago.  all the images were photographed by the amazing deb zoe -

design orchestration and floral artistry were all done in-house with our amazing team at

les fleurs


natural flax linens and ivory hemstitch napkins (along with all table top rentals) are apart of

peterson party center's

vast inventory.  if you'r looking for a table scape or a tent, they have it all!!

abigail matses,

proper paper

- modeling above in a


gown (all attire for this shoot was chosen by bridal stylist, shannon faretra of shine on weddings.  gowns and accessories are all from bhldn) designed a lovely invitation suite with watercolor calligraphy.

this beautiful "almost" naked cake is from

jenny's wedding cakes

.  i love everything she bakes - hire her!

the place settings (peterson party center) were so elaborate and scrumptious!  the gold acrylic charger set the tone.  followed by the gold vine set plate, gold rim dinner and salad plates.  to not overdo it we chose silver eton flatware and simple crystal stemware.  for the extra little something, the gold rim champagne flute.

ok... let's talk about these flower girls?!  danielle and my little ones modeled and played the role of flower girl for us.  both girls are wearing bhldn.
