Wedding Shoot at The Pointe - Rustic, Vintage Charm
When Laura asked me to do a styled shoot with her, I was ecstatic! Not only because she is so talented, but because this shoot would allow me to show the diversity in my designs. The idea behind the shoot was to create a Vintage and Rustic environment with the expression of genuine love. This environment would be full of natural light, colors, and foods along with the chemistry of a real couple. The idea was to create a truly natural feeling shoot that expresses the raw love of the couple.
May this shoot warm your heart and Thank You to everyone that participated!

A Glamorous Affair with
The Belle of Louisville
This shoot was so much fun to design with the glamorous bride in mind. She is a lover of all things glitz and glam with attention to detail and unique touches. For example, we included Belle of Louisville shot glasses, wooden whistles, and coasters for guests to take as favors. So, sit back, relax, and take some time and check these photos out!
May this shoot cause you to find your inner glamazon and Thank You to everyone that participated!

21c Museum Hotel "Modern, Wild, Romantic" Styled Wedding Shoot
This shoot was inspired by the local, wild, and artistic venue of 21c Museum Hotel and today's couple. The designers worked hard to convert their passions to art and I wanted the themes of the venue to be reflected in our wedding design. I love to take elements that are attributed to my location, couple, and venue and add to the vision along with my spin on it. For example, the cotton candy came into play because Proof on Main gives it to customers post-meal and event-goers at 21c are given the menu to select from rather than the typical catering menu. Regarding the colors and theme, I decided to draw inspiration from Pantone's 2017 Home + Interiors collection palette called "Acquired Taste." But what made the "Wild, Modern, Romantic" vision really come to life were the flowers, the soft hair and makeup, along with the dress from Modern Trousseau. The idea was to create an invitation suite the looked modern, combine local products like those in the "welcome bag" that guests would receive, down to the sodas made right here in Butchertown. Lastly, I wanted to include guests in the shoot to give it an overall, real feel and to be different!
May this shoot be visually appealing to you and Thank You to everyone that participated!
Nashville Bridal Tea
The feel for this "high" tea was an intimate, with features of many details that included a custom menu of: turkey and swiss sandwiches, prosciutto parmesan sandwiches, smoked salmon on brioche toast, a caprese salad, fresh garden salad, french macarons, green, black, and earl grey teas, lemonade, water with mint and cucumber and lots of laughter. This shower was accompanied with lots of joy and the bride was nothing short of drop dead gorgeous. She and her friends cannot wait until the wedding.
Goodloe's Naughty and Nice Couple's Party
This event was very exciting to plan. I decided to take red and gold as accent colors for black as the main color to create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere for the event. The combination of different textures such as the rosette table linens, white tableware with gold trimming, gold flatware and painted florals, and the real looking "snow" in the vase on the main table created a very detailed night. The guests were in awe as they were visually stimulated and pair that with signature cocktails, great catering, games, and favors everyone had an amazing night!
Awakening Church - Senior Leadership Appreciation Luncheon
This luncheon was for the senior leadership of Awakening Church, here in Louisville, KY! The theme was "Grateful Harvest", with floral design by our company along with the fall design and planning with decor from Reliable Rentals. The idea was to create a "home" and family feel with family style lunch served in big bowls and platters. They were however served by volunteers but ultimately the food made beautiful centerpieces as well. It was a joy to be apart of this day.
Wynn Lu's 4th Birthday
This event was so fun to plan! One of the most exciting things was that Wynn Lu and his mother came from Manila in the Philippines to celebrate his birthday. My client requested that a magician be present, a 100 lb. fully roasted pig, lots of balloons, and Filipino food for side dishes. So, I got to work and found everything that they needed and desired. I also designed the event with linens, colors, lots of balloons with a Minecraft theme to my client's liking. Which, is most important to me because people like different things. It is vital in my opinion to cater to what the client deeply wants and requests for each and every event and to make it happen with a smile.
Happy Birthday Wynn Lu!
