This month we were so inspired by the bright fresh colors of 1950′s era plastic and bakelight jewelry. The soft corals, greens, and turquoises that so defined the baubles of the times are just thing to brighten up any winter wedding. We love the idea of putting a modern twist on the tried and true color combination and using such a bright palette amidst the pearly gray overtone of these long winter months. The gorgeously packaged (and equally gorgeous tasting) chocolates from Brooklyn’s own Mast Brothers and delicious nosh from Michael Stuart Catering were just the thing to top of this light hearted affair. Thank you to the fabulous Green Building situated right here in Brooklyn for letting us use your space, and to Lovely Bride for the super chic dress from Quail Bridal.
Fall is in the air! We’re suckers for crisp cool air and ruddy cheeks. After the long warm summer days, piling on big, comfy sweaters and having cozy dinners at home couldn’t be more welcome. During these autumn months there are so many gorgeous flowers (I’m mean look at those dahlias; they are good enough to eat) but there are also a plethora of fruits and veggies to be found at local farm and supermarkets alike. We decided to utilize all of the season’s bountiful harvest in our floral inspiration this month. From tiny crabapple seating cards to a crisp radish bouquet there are endless possibilities when it comes to designing an autumn wedding. Serving a family style meal at large farmhouse tables is a great way to encourage your guests to interact with one another. Placing your centerpiece in a petite vintage crate helps to carry the earthiness of the fall aesthetic through to the tablescape. Last but not least…don’t forget to serve up plenty of apple cider!
Trent Bailey photographed this months ‘Outside the Flower Box’ for us and we couldn’t have asked for a more talented photographer! Originally from Louisiana (same home state as Sierra) his Southern charm is just as lovely as his photographs! He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we can’t recommend him enough to anyone looking for some one to capture their big day.
