Beyond Thrilled to have Style Me Pretty feature our Orchard Photo Shoot! This was such a labor of love! I wanted to design something that was ‘on trend’ but also ‘ahead of the trend’. This can be a fine line and a tough balance. We kept the florals more of an accent while keeping them very Garden Elegance and an easy-whimsical feeling so that the metallic details could take center stage. And boy did they! Copper is the new Gold and it’s awesome that we started this trend…get ready, because you are about to see a lot of it in your travels!
Please take some time to read about the shoot, meet the entire creative team and what we used as inspiration on Style Me Pretty.

What do you do when the sweetest bride ever! tells you she bought her fiance an Orange, Raspberry, Deep Purple and Bright Green bow tie and wants her wedding to be that color story….and using summer-like flowers for her ‘Fall” wedding…? Well, if you’re me, you say ‘Hell yeah, that’s awesome, let’s do it!’ So…we did it and turned out to be one of the best color combinations and floral varieties I’ve designed in a long time. What most people don’t know is that towards the end of wedding season and autumn many flowers become unavailable and the inventory of unique, colorful flowers can be very limited. This is where hiring an experienced designer can benefit you due to the years of connections they have with suppliers as well as knowledge of what can be in season in other countries, etc I’ll spare you the behind the scenes details and just show you what I’m talking about……
Loved how these colors really brightened up the ballrooms at The New Haven Lawn Club
A HUGE thanks to Kathy at Simply K Studios for not only taking these INCREDIBLE photos but for allowing me to show them off to every bride that may want something a little different…something bright and elegant….something so colorful that it transforms a room and a venue! Thank you!
