land to sea shoot : martha stewart weddings feature

we were recently asked to create a little inspiration around the colors powder blue and nude.  we were so thrilled at the opportunity to be in Martha Stewart's Bride Guide collaborating on one of their color palettes, so we hitched up our boots and called on some of our favorite industry professionals and got to work.  our inspiration stemmed from a "land to sea" concept - that we so adore.  we wanted to incorporate other natural elements and colors as well - cause that's what we do.  check out all of the fabulous participants below and let us know what you think.  we hope you like it as much as we do.  Be sure to check over on over at Martha Stewart's blog today for lots more pics!

event design : hanging installations

we love (like...LOVE, love) hanging installations.  whether it be a lantern or a group of lanterns, cloth, lights, ribbon, rope - you name it - we are all about it.  if an event space allows us to utilize the ceiling we take advantage of that opportunity.  it creates a sense of comfortable containment and can tie the entire concept together.  we can't wait to show you some of the installations we have going this year.  ones that hang from the ceiling, of course.

we are loving : lace

lets face it.  lace is one of those elements that just never really gets old (well...in a certain sense).  now, we agree that it can be overdone or misused.  but, unlike most other fabrics it - often tells a story - and makes the look and feel of anything more special than it would have normally been.  we are loving lace more than ever.

dish to dress: inspiration

it is simple....we love dishware from the intricate details, colorful patterns and over all art they can bring to any tablescape.  creating the perfect celebration is all in the details.  from your tableware mix perfectly with your bridesmaid's dresses is just one way to tie your look together when tying the knot in style.

we are loving : color + rainbows

there is nothing more in this world that says "happy" to us like a ton (a TON) of color.  we love it when people say that they want to incorporate loads of color - sometimes all of the colors.  really?  right on.  as the sun is shinning and the weather is "summer ideal" we wanted to take a moment to get inspired by color, rainbows and all of the things you can do with them.  time to get happy...
