Paper Goat Post: De:Constructed Dinner Party workshop!

Hello everyone! Last Thursday was such a lovely time spent at Paper Goat Post! I had the honor of sharing a dinner party workshop for the 2nd time with my creative friends! The Dinner Party Project stirred up some delicious cocktails, showing our guests how to create the perfect Summer drink! Next we had Mona from Merci Bakery whip up a delicious naked cake with all the yummy toppings from berries, figs, powdered sugar and more to take home! ! And yours truly, I shared some styling and DIY arrangement advice to our attendees where they created a lush and sweet Summer arrangement, what a great job everyone did! These workshops are seriously so much fun! If you haven’t looked up the calendar of events at Paper Goat Post, please do! All the ladies were so awesome to meet and mingle with!

Fall and Lace Editorial

It seems like Summer’s last forever here in Florida, we long for crisp dryer air, Fall clothing and all things pumpkin! I loved styling and capturing this beautiful “Fall in Florida” editorial. Featuring one of my favorite designers, Sarah Seven. The beautiful lace sleeves and stunning neck line, whoa! I love simple, flawless elegance. Can we talk about the groom’s style? I want to thank my talented friend John Newland who styled my groom as I visualized it, into reality. I’ve always had a keen love for the British “Oxford” style! Grooms are allowed to stand out too you know! Step into Fall with these beautiful images taken at the lovely venue of The Luxmore Estate, what a beautiful venue for any wedding or event! Is it Fall yet?!

Summer Peony Tablescape love!

I’m excited to share my first series of styling the table with yours truly! One thing I learned growing up in my home, was a beautiful place setting sets a mood, compliments food and brings a sense a warmth and welcoming to any guest! Whether it’s a wedding, celebration or just because! I loved designing this one, bright pink peony arrangements mixed with the lovely aroma of baby eucalyptus + the stunning layers of dishes placed on a textured gold charger. Let’s not forget the lavender accent colors from the goblets, adding a perfect Summer lovin’ — with all the feels! Let’s sit down!

These two lovebirds were a joy! I loved designing their wedding from the floral to the little details of Eucalyptus touches everywhere. Celeste has a heart of gold and seriously one of the sweetest gals I have met. Caleb, I’m not forgetting you, you’re a rock-star and I’m so happy to have been able to be part of your big day! From lush garlands and pops of soft blushes, this Mediterranean inspired garden wedding was perfectly set at the beautiful Luxmore Grand Estate.

Real Wedding: Sarah + Nick

I first met sweet Sarah at Calvet Couture, one of my favorite bridal boutiques here in Orlando. I got to know Sarah as she spoke about her beautiful up and coming wedding and all the dreamy details she wanted, I was thrilled to design and plan her wedding. We took a little drive to Lake Wales, where the couple resides and where the “I do’s” were shared. The white walls and orange brick exterior surrounded the ceremony ambiance of the First Baptist church of Lakes Wales. Guests arrived for the reception at Lake Ashton Country Club, where we enjoyed a Eucalyptus filled room, with an amazing live band ( who were friends of the couple ) and danced the night away. Please enjoy some of my personal favorites from their wedding below, captured by The Hons. Congrats again you two sweeties!
