Don’t you just love how a single color can inspire an entire event? Photog Danielle of Lavender & Twine has a thing for copper and couldn’t wait to see it in action: While I do love gold and other metallic tones, I’ve yet to see copper used much in weddings. I started daydreaming about a wedding day palette that could incorporate its simplistic beauty, and I ran my idea by Joelle of A Charming Occasion. I’m happy to say that she ran with it.

With a cobalt, burgundy, and copper color story in mind, Joelle styled a most elegant shoot:

Joelle says, We have an amazing venue, McCormick Home Ranch, near us and it was the perfect backdrop for this sweet, garden inspired look. I wanted something soft but with pops of color, and got to work with an amazing team of vendors to make that happen! This venue is a beauty, for sure!

Poppies and Posies event and florals design | Photo by Gary Ashley of The Wedding Artist Collective | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=77666

It’s been awhile since we’ve posted a proper vendor spotlight around here, hasn’t it? When we caught a glimpse into the studio space of the floral + event design experts at Poppies & Posies, we decided it was high time we shared a bit about their team and what they do. You might recognize their fabulous work from the NY summer soiree recap we posted last month – brilliant, right?

The P&P team is made up of the creative coordinator, Christina, who specializes in large scale installations like chuppahs, arches, hanging florals, and more. Susie is the studio manager and a floral designer; plus there’s an extensive freelance team that helps make all the magic happen. Then there is, of course, Sierra Steifman, Poppies & Posies co-founder and creative director, who chatted with us about her biz below.

Thanks to the guys at The Wedding Artists Collective for the photos.

Poppies & Posies has operated out of their current 2,000 sqft warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn for the last four years. Sierra says, We painted the floors white this year to help brighten the space up and hung pegboards to organize our floral tools and non-floral tools. Organization is always a challenge for us since we have so many items going in and out the door each day. Between our prop shop, The Trove, and our event design work it is truly a revolving door of vases, lanterns, rugs, hurricanes and about a million other little things. Susie keeps us all in order by sectioning off the spaces and trying to keep items together that are similar.

Naturally, the team cozies up the space by keeping a little greenery around.

Sierra’s advice to those of you in wedding planning mode: I would encourage couples to have an open mind when sitting down to plan their decor and florals. This way your designer can give you suggestions based on the season and highest quality of product. Your designer may also suggest a color palette or style that you may have not other wise considered, but that fits you well. Our clients that are a little flexible always wind up with the prettiest flowers and overall decor at the end of the day.

One of our favorite events we designed this year was with Lyndsey Hamilton Events up at Locusts on Hudson. The couple and the bride’s family were all so sweet and trusting when it came to their big day. They shared their vision with us and then really let us run with it. In the end it was a huge success and very rewarding.

Thanks for letting us take a peek into your space! See the P&P vendor profile for more.

Fashionable fall same-sex wedding | Photo by Les Loups of the Wedding Artist Collective | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=77583

As Creative Directors, you can imagine that lots of art + design went into Emily & Kate’s charming fall wedding. From designing the paper goods and their own dresses to the reception details, they took the whole idea of collaboration and ran with it: Kate’s aunt baked Filipino desserts; Kate’s sister sewed napkins; Emily + her cousin designed the reception with flower market finds; Their cousins silkscreened guest bags; Emily’s brother made the E and K sign; Her other brother helped paint the escort cards…. Then, the morning of, friends + fam put it all together. What a list! And Les Loups has the photos to prove it:

They chose Les Loups as a photog because they wanted to be able to look back in 50 years and see joy + love in every photo. Spot on, right?

On the venue…

While visiting Kate’s mom in Delaware, we remembered reading a Facebook post about a friend’s wedding at a nearby inn, Sweetwater Farm. At that time, we weren’t necessarily looking for a “venue” but were curious to explore the area. On a whim, we went to take a look. It was very early in the morning and the thick misty fog added a definite romantic sense to the place. We walked around, taking in all the simple beauty—the landscape of giant trees enveloping the beautifully restored main house, the horses and two dogs lazily grazing on the property and, of course, the vineyard. We immediately fell in love with the interior of the barn with its gorgeous wood, high ceilings and huge windows that overlooked an incredibly picturesque ceremony area (where we later exchanged vows). We inquired about possible openings for Fall and discovered that we could book the entire property for the whole weekend—14 beautiful cottages and rooms so that our closest family and friends could spend time together. Without using too much imagination, we could already see it happening. We didn’t see the point in looking at any other venue and booked our wedding for their only available weekend.

They honored both Filipino traditions and Emily’s upbringing in Colorado throughout. Emily says, Emily grew up in Colorado and so the barn wedding fit her upbringing perfectly. Since Kate’s family is from the Philippines, we incorporated small nods to her heritage. her intricate dress was designed as a modern interpretation of a Barong Tagalog, a traditional Filipino formal dress, handmade in the province where her father was born. We created escort cards with miniature spray-painted gold pigs set on banana leaves (referencing the Filipino celebratory dish of roasted pig) and mixed homemade traditional Filipino desserts in with our wedding cake and favorite pies.
