From Inspiration to Reality: The Design
April 23, 2010

Our From Inspiration to Reality shoots have become one of my favorite parts of Style Me Pretty. It's so cool to see the inspiration boards that you guys are crafting come to life through the genius of the vendors that we work with. And today's shoot is definitely one of the best yet. It's shockingly gorgeous with an unbelievably fresh approach to wedding design. It's elegant and yet whimsical, it's super chic and yet totally timeless. And the fashion? Bananas. Huge props go to Cunningham Photo Artists, Ivy Robinson weddings & events, Ceci New York and the fabulous vendors that gifted us with such gorgeousness.

Gorgeous, right? Ahh...I really could live in these photographs. They are total wedding perfection. We have the team's behind the scenes details coming up next, but for now, I wanted to just say a huge thank you to Sofia (Brancoprata) for continuing to inspire our vendors and our brides over on the Style Circle. Her boards are ALWAYS some of my favorites, always edited and always gorgeous. Sofia definitely earns the SMP gold star!
