Anything Joy Proctor touches turns to wedding gold, so when she came on board to style Kurt Boomer’s recent workshop the results were – no surprise – perfection. Designed with a nod to Old Hollywood, she chose a palette of moody reds, lavender, black and gold and Written Word Calligraphy whipped up a stationery set to tie it all together. Head to the gallery and let the pretty party begin.
From Joy Proctor Design… I had the pleasure of creating a moody, romantic look for Kurt Boomer’s film photography workshop, held at the gorgeous Villa del Sol d’Oro. Inspired by the stunning architecture of the venue, we created a look that paid homage to old Hollywood, highlighted by a color pallete of black, gold, lavender and reds.
For the bride, Jess Wilcox created a playful 20’s curled look, adding a pop of color of color to her lips. We chose a beautiful Paolo Sebastian gown from Nearly Newlywed that complimented the neutral tones of the venue. Designing the stationery with Written Word was the highlight of the entire concept. The handmade black and charcoal papers with the gorgeous gold calligraphy truly set the tone for the entire look.
As a fun way to incorporate the seating assignments, the bar and the cake, we used the Tent Merchants beautiful bar back to display the seating cards, decanters, champagne flutes and cake. The adjoining lounge suite also had a beautiful grammophone and decanter set up for a perfect cocktail lounge space.
The table top pieces from Classic Vintage Rentals were truly spectacular, and added the most sophisticated look to the beautiful oval wood table from the Tent Merchant. Gold rimmed chargers and glassware were complimented by black menus and moody red florals set on the Villas back terrace. The oversized soft purple/grey runner from Silk & Willow pooled on the ground on either side of the table for a dramatic finish to the look.
