And of course, it wouldn't be the perfect present without the film!
From the photographer... Inspired by the upcoming holiday season, we designed a modern inspiration shoot with a twist on traditional holiday décor! We developed a design that diverted from the expected red and green so often used in Christmas decor. The inspiration for this shoot came from a favorite fabric we found in pink and gray tartan plaid – a traditional pattern with an unexpected pop of fun and flirty pink! This fabric was the central focus for the overall design and informed our decision making in selecting the venue, invitation design, tabletop décor, and even the delicious naked cake!

With mixed metals, white sequins, metallic curly willow, a touch of glitz and glamour, plus the lovely floral centerpieces from Kim Starr Wise, we juxtaposed natural elements with glamorous touches. The venue’s exposed brick, wooden beams, rustic chandeliers, and plentiful natural light pouring in from the skylight above set the ideal backdrop for our holiday scheme. Think about Santa coming down the chimney into this winter wonderland – and having a party to kick off the festivities! The naked cake we designed exposes the structure of the confection’s delicious layers, topped off with a sparkle glaze drizzled down the sides and a touch of the floral scheme to carry over the table top design.

Tupelo Honey executed the perfect stationery suite for our event, incorporating shades of pink, silver and gold with calligraphy that sparkled. How could anyone say no to such an invite? Holiday wreaths and pink flocked trees were festive additions to the backdrop. The contemporary yet cozy lounge area with textured and striped wallpaper, silver couch, and mirrored table is perfect for snuggling up with the one you love! While it may be cold outside, our couple has their love to keep them warm (and hot cocoa, too)! Steaming mugs of cocoa with marshmallows are a staple that this holiday celebration wouldn’t be complete without!

Cheers to a merry and bright holiday season!
