Wedding Party 2011, Our Space

Images from the Wedding Party are beginning to roll in and I wanted to share a few with you. I'll start with our own area -- as all 117 vendors who participated know, it's a great outlet for creativity.

I was going for a soft, pink, Victorian, quirky feel, with accents of black to keep the look a tiny bit edgy. I enlisted lots of friends, who all independently understood what I was going for and delivered magical products that all worked together to create a little bit of a startling atmosphere, just as I intended.
You can see the gorgeous Juliska glassware, Match pewter-edged china and cutlery. LMD's Lewis Miller created the divine arrangements. An Amsale favorite crinkle chiffon dress in the background stands before my favorite piece, the full size Taylor Creative black horse!
Sylvia Weinstock made this beauty just for me. One of my favorite cakes ever, for sure.
I love to incorporate the ladies of Navy & Lavender's favor towers wherever I can. Doesn't this fit perfectly? What an innovative sweets display!
We had loads of Wedding Library stationery to incorporate. Love the pink and sepia.
The inspiration for the shoot came from these amazing laser cut flat bird cages. Some hang inside flat, fold-up stands, and some were hung as beautiful, delicate mobiles. Available at the Wedding Library.
Here's how it came together. Linens by Nuage Designs, with a pink silk dupioni underlay. The Victoria ghost chairs just melt away, but the velvet armchairs and modern Taylor Creative fireplace make the mix perfect.
A sweet cake by Cheryl Kleinman sits atop a favorite container turned cake stand.
And little feather butterflies trimmed in silver dust hide amongst the blooms. I like that there's a pretty but off-kilter surprise around every corner.
