Luxe Irish Castle Inspiration Shoot by Aislinn Events
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography, Wedding Inspiration

Reminiscent of an enchanting fairytale, Annie Byrne of Aislinn Events designed this luxe inspiration shoot at the majestic Adare Manor in Ireland. An amazing team came together to create the elaborate display of paper goods, florals, décor, dessert and more that perfectly reflected the countryside estate setting. Annie wanted to give a general sense of lushness- warm and a bit smoky with natural textures of leather, fur and pheasant feathers. Feast your eyes on the inspiring photos by Kristen Booth.Cream-toned card stock and gold scripted paper goods by Petite Paper gave a regal impression of age. The color and vibrance of robust jewel-toned florals by Leona Fitzmaurice Lynch just pours thru the photographs.  Annie played on the backdrop by styling the model as the “lady of the manor,” complete with oversized estate jewelry by Knightsbridge Boutique, furs, and feather accessories by Karen Flannery Art. The flowing, feminine gowns were provided by DeStafford Bridal. These opposing concepts of soft beauty against strong architectural bones drove this inspiration shoot.

The tablescape and dessert table were an abundant bouquet of rich colors, including pomegranates poised on each place setting ready for the feast and merriment. The four tiered cream fondant cake by Cloudberry Bakery was delicately painted with copper, orange, and golds to create oversize flowers.  I’m just loving the painted feathers on the cupcakes too!

Now there’s a photoshoot…  Thanks to this extraordinarily talented team of vendors abroad!

Intimate Arboretum Wedding by Love Me Sailor
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Allison and Mark’s day was very intimate…only fifteen guests in attendance.

We were taken with the gorgeous film photographs by Love Me Sailor and the pretty jewel-toned palette.  And we thought it inspiring, the way they celebrated their love with a cozy little ceremony in the arboretum and private restaurant reception. The couple met in the West Village in NYC, but they live in Los Angeles, where Allison opened a makeup and beauty lounge called  Blushington– on Sunset Boulevard.  All the ladies at the wedding were treated to hair styles by drybar and makeup by Blushington!  Above, Allison poses with her sister/best friend.  The guest list included only ‘immediate’ family- parents, siblings, and their children.

The private reception was held at a romantic little restaurant called Julienne.  Allison decorated a long family-style table with florals in the colorful, seasonal palette. 

Throughout the planning process, Allison and Mark focused on one thing: their lifelong commitment to one another.  This steadfast devotion made the day utterly unforgettable.  See the full gallery {here}.
