Valerie and Chris were married on the first Fall weekend last year here in Texas and it was oh-so-beautiful! Their wedding took place at The Grove in Aubrey, Texas- the grounds are picturesque with tree lined alleys everywhere you looked. When Valerie came to me last March she talked about celebrating the fall season with romantic lighting and simple design. She and I worked together to create a warm and inviting color palette of cranberry, blush, blackberry, evergreen and pecan. Jessica Huston, of Root and Bloom, and I dreamed up a beautiful 20' garland installation that hung above the dance floor! To balance out the installation we chose to have alternating centerpiece designs of tall magnolia leaves and low, lush floral arrangements. I am such a sucker for mixing in a bit of metallics, so alternating gold and copper chargers were paired with matte gray plates and mother of pearl flatware. Brett Heidebrecht was behind the lense and captured it all on film- oh, how I love that black and white grain! Their day was full of so much friendship and love and it showed in all aspects of planning their wedding. It was a total joy!
Valerie and Chris, Happy one year anniversary and congratulations on your new baby girl!
I traveled to Charleston, South Carolina with friend and photographer, Heather Rowland to work on this editorial shoot which was featured on Lemonade and Lenses yesterday! I fell in love with the southern charm of the city. Charleston has so much history and soul and the grounds at Legare Waring House were just breathtaking! Hundreds of spanish moss filled trees lined the entrance that lead to the main house sitting on a perfectly manicured lawn and overlooking the water. I love the intimate feeling that Legare Waring house gives and wanted to translate that into the design. I incorporated the color palette of dusty blue, sage and ivory which can be seen all around the city. Be sure to check out more of the feature on Lemonade and Lenses!
