Wedding details are often inspired by both your love story, your personalities, and your interests. I always love asking my couples where they love to shop - both for clothes and for their home - because it gives such a great insight into their personal style and design aesthetic.
This styled shoot for the Amy and Jordan Workshop was inspired by a preppy Anthropologie aesthetic, and all of us had such a fun time bringing that vision to life! My mind immediately leapt to Gossip Girl reading the Anthro catalogue, and I couldn't pick up my paintbrush quickly enough to start this design.
Thank you so much for featuring this beautiful styled shoot, 100 Layer Cake! I know we are all so excited to be able to share these gorgeous photos!
Everything from the juxtaposition of soft yet wild horses paired with loose flowing lavender branches next to classic hydrangeas and garden roses, to the cool textured velvet blush ribbon topped with a crisp and traditional copper wax seal made for the perfect blend of these two aesthetics.
I even not so subtly snuck in some Gossip Girl references - from the guest name "Van Der Woodsen" on the invitation envelope to "Parsons" as a hint to Parsons School of Design that Jenny attended. Kayla from Some Like it Classic and I had such a fun time brainstorming design ideas for this suite!
How gorgeous is this bright white venue? It's Clayton on the Park in Scottsdale, Arizona, and it officially has my heart! It was the perfect setting for this delectable pre-dinner cocktail hour.
I fell in love with these acrylic bar cart accessories from the Oh Joy for Target collection, and immediately knew I wanted to calligraph some fun witty phrases on them! They were perfect for shaking up the couple's signature cocktail, lavender vodka lemonade. How fresh does that sound? Perfect for the Arizona heat!
PS - those coasters? I may have ordered a few extras to keep in my office because they're just too darn cute ;)
Dinner was then served in the most incredibly beautiful, serene sea of lavender velvet with bold pops of purple and copper. I cannot stop swooning over those floral arrangements by Noir Floral and the rose gold glassware from BHLDN!
Notes from the team… Our stunning bride, Gabrielle, was glowing with upswept hair and natural makeup by Megan Dehann, and so ethereal in a BHLDN gown. This dress, which is the most delicate shade of ivory, was a perfect complement to the beautiful to rich colors in the bouquet. We chose soft garden roses, ranunculus, and anemones and to pop against the velvet rose linens and modern copper chairs. Overall, we created a light and airy look with a sense of subtle sophistication.
And of course, after dinner you must have dessert! But why stop at a cake - even one as gorgeous as this copper foiled three-tiered beauty?
My favorite detail of this entire shoot may have been the beautiful little watercolor floral heart-shaped cookies that were inspired by the pattern I painted for the invitation suite. What a fun way to literally carry the design details throughout your wedding day! Ruze Cake House, you are creative geniuses! Currently wishing I had a few of your tasty and beautiful cookies on this Valentine's Day!
The designs for the Amy and Jordan Workshop were such a fun artistic challenge, and I am so thankful to have been a part of this dreamy shoot! Thank you to all of the amazingly talented vendors who participated!
