The thing that Lisa does beautifully, probably better than anyone I've ever seen...is layering. Layering of textures, of colors, of fabrics, of details. She creates a story within the weddings that she designs, bringing a thoughtfulness to each and every element. And Aaron...well, he photographs in such a way that you really see the softness behind the day. The pure and simple beauty tucked into every detail. Together, they design a wedding story that is so easy to fall in love with.
For our color story --- we went with a combination of creams and taupes, and added accents of charcoal and black. For florals - the amazingly talented Mindy Rice paired gorgeous peonies, garden roses, maidenhair fern and mood moss, in aged charcoal clay vessels with more structured boxwood spheres.
For added drama and height, I had Barker Decor build Magnolia trees that "grew" out of the center of our square tables. I also had Barker create a custom taupe dance floor that matched our taupe glass chargers from Tabella. The dance floor served as the most beautiful "centerpiece" to our dinner reception.
La Tavola provided the perfect taupe linen underlays and chair cushions. The taupe cushions paired with our black chiavari chairs were beyond striking! Mindy and I had cream overlay linens sewn...and for a little twist, we added a fringe border to the overlays. It was the perfect little unexpected detail! For a little more quirkiness -- we hung hand carved wood birds in the Magnolia trees. They were absolutely beautiful.
