Hey! We were featured on Catalyst Wedding Co! Peep the article here.

This inspiration shoot emerged from a pattern design created by Teresa Reynolds who is also the talented hair and makeup artist for this collaboration. Her design exudes an energetic flow and ease with the organic movement which we loved seeing with clean straight lines and minimal elements. Its playful color palette was fun to interpret across all vignettes, keeping a balance of liveliness and sophistication.

We used Zazzle to custom print Teresa’s design onto large canvas panels. They were suspended from the industrial beams of the beautiful space, Gallery 308 in Fort Mason. Along with the suspending panels are buttery yellow floral arrangements created by Rare Sparrow and sparkling Edison bulbs by 3 Stage Lighting. To turn up the modern sophistication of the scene we used acrylic chairs provided by The Social Stylist for guest seating.

The tablescape design was kept simple, clean, and fun with Trunks & Tales‘ beautiful table and tabletop pieces. We especially love the mint dinner plates and colored glassware glowing beneath a row of 3 Stage Lighting’s Edison bulbs. The unconventional floral pieces from Rare Sparrow gave the table lightness and unexpectedness.

The bride wore a modern fit two-piece gown by designer Galia Lahav provided by Kinsley James Bridal Couture. The makeup artist, Teresa Reynolds Beauty, gave our bride the most impeccable look and gorgeous vibrant hair, which we adored! The bride’s lovely nails were done by Sugar Plum Fairy Fingers who used a modern technique, painting the front and back of the nails. We really didn’t leave any details out!

The modern masterpiece cake was by Ma Petite Maison Cake Design! Every event needs a beautiful cake, including inspiration shoots. The cake’s mesmerizing lines of the marbling mimicked Teresa’s pattern design, which looked amazing displayed on the wire base column with woven florals to add softness.

Finally, the fresh branding pieces consisted of invitation suite, menus, guest sign-in book, place cards, and lightbulb table numbers that were created by the innovative Idea Emporium. Her pieces added interest, depth, and cohesion to the vignettes.

This shoot was truly a creative collaboration among vendors who are constantly experimenting outside the box to inspire brides and grooms. Huge thank you to Tickled Events for expertly coordinating the shoot, Milou + Olin for beautifully capturing our work, and Barbara Jacqueline for filming the behind the scenes!
