Feature Friday-- St. Regis Winter Shoot

Since it's nearly Christmas and I'll be taking a week off, I think this is the perfect shoot to leave you with... it's chic, sophisticated and oh-so-lovely! The warm tones of plum & ivory are accented with touches of gold to create this decadent & divine event. I love how cozy, yet luxurious this inspiration shoot feels. Carrie Parker of White Ginger Events, made this winter wonderland come to life with the help of some incredible local vendors. The St. Regis Deer Valley makes for the perfect setting and can you believe all the pretty little desserts?! Oh and how fun are the Pine Cone Fire Starter Favors? I think they're quite darling. Well, enjoy these charming images & have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

Feature Friday-- More Winter Wedding Inspiration!

Today, I bring you more fun winter wedding inspiration. This shoot took place at the Sky Lodge in Park City-- the same location as the other winter wedding shoot I shared a few weeks back, but this one was indoors, inside the incredible Penthouse Suite! Love it.

It all started when Amy Lashelle wanted to shoot a lavish, yet unique winter wedding... so my good friend Amanda {Branches Event Floral} asked me to help with some of the design elements for this charming event-- it was lots of fun. The inspiration came from all the lovely textures of winter-- warm sweaters & mittens, fire wood, faux fur. The color scheme was drawn from shades of Amber, Emerald, Sapphire, Gold & Warm White. I love that these colors are a unique blend, but still have a wintery feel. Natural elements in wood tones were combined with the chic color arrangement for a bit of eclectic charm. We brought in some of the outdoors with whimsical additions like the owls & hedgehogs. I love the upscale lodge feeling with the cozy, at-home touches. Two dresses were used for this shoot to showcase different winter wedding fashion ideas. Add knit tights, shimmering ankle boots and a faux fur wrap to make a shorter-style dress perfect for a winter wedding. Or pair a lovely cardigan with a simple, yet chic full-length dress for a charming look.

Don't you just adore all the lovely details? I'm smitten with the mini Martinelli's & darling mitten favors! Happy winter to you & hope you enjoy this sweet little shoot...

Feature Friday-- Princess Project # 2

In case you haven't yet heard of The Princess Project, I'm excited to introduce you to this wonderful endeavor... basically a group of rockin' vendors (if I do say so myself) have joined forces to create fabulous inspirations shoots based on the Disney Princesses. Magical, whimsical & insane amounts of fun, wouldn't you say?! I was so excited when the Lindsey's (Lindsey Shaun Photography & Lindsey Orton Photography) asked me to be a part of this incredible project. Pocahontas was the first princess shoot we did & I'm excited to share with you today our most recent creation... SNOW WHITE! Make sure to visit the photographers blogs to see more amazing images. Also, take a minute to watch the video by Kale Fitch. It will blow your mind, plus you can see what it's like behind the scenes! Happy Friday & enjoy....

Feature Friday-- The Amour Invite with pocket

Recently did these chic invites for Christine & Andrew. We actually did 2 variations of this design. The one in the photo was the version sent to the majority of the guests & the other is a full pocket for the guests that had more insert cards to keep organized. As soon as I have some photos of the other variation of this design, I'll have to post them! It's a great option to use if you have a few guests receiving multiple insert cards. Anyway, don't you love the color combo of the deep red, cream & gold? So classy...

In the Details: Deep Red Metallic Pocket, Matte Finish Invite & Tag, Cream Satin Ribbon. This style can be done in any color scheme.
