Screen Shot 2017-12-14 at 10.41.24 AMThis was a THE wedding and I wanted every detail to be perfect when I assumed the role of Creative Director for my sister’s wedding. From the tiniest details – like choosing the velvet napkins to the biggest – the dress, I was involved every step of the way. The best part of the day was seeing my sister absolutely radiating light + joy and gaining a brother that I couldn’t have hand picked better myself. Everything came together beautifully with more than a little help from my talented friends.

In what may be my favorite love story of all my couples, Kelly and Houston’s wedding was nothing short of breathtaking. They met when Kelly went to have her ski boots fitted by Houston and it begins in the most beautiful Aspen Meadow with details that will not be soon forgotten by all who were there. Captured by Ashley Sawtelle, planning and design by Gold Leaf Event Design + Productions, Eclectic Hive and Yonder Floral + Design House to name a few. Brides did an an amazing feature on their day.

I am a strong believer in less is more – especially in the chaotic times that we live in. This season I am approaching event design with minimalism. Tons of greens, a limited palate of blooms and delicate texture. With a focus on luxurious linens and and handcrafted tableware.  I wanted to showcase this sensibility in a styled shoot with a like minded team.

As soon as I met Los Angeles based couple Tony + Sarah I knew that they would be incredible to collaborate with. With guests flying in from all over the world, they wanted to have a memorable weekend at beautiful BRUSH CREEK RANCH in Sarasota, Wyoming. I love working at the ranch because there are infinite possibilities for creating a custom event. The color story was also derived from the ranch – dusty lavender, sage, wheat and whites played off the season. Captured beautifully by ASHLEY SAWTELLE planned by the tireless TABLE 6 PRODUCTIONS with custom lighting from DESIGN WORKS, linen from LA TAVOLA and makeup by DANICA SEVERANCE. Here are a few details but see more from STYLE ME PRETTY.

Inspired by the meticulous restoration of Denver’s Union Station, we chose classic, understated elements for the decor, glassware, flatware, etc to compliment the chic environment. Mixed metals, marble, pewter, glass and classic attire are timeless, yet modern. The romantic feeling that a train station evokes was the perfect backdrop for this elopement.
