Southern Pastels in the heart of Florida

This is Southern sophistication at it’s finest! Set amongst southern moss filled grandfather oaks in the heart of Florida, this pastel-hued inspirational shoot promised to take our breath away, and it certainly did! With winter melting away and dashes of spring starting to come to life, this stunning shoot makes for a beautiful transition. The combination of pale pastels, a bit of shimmer, and a modern touch from our Black Metallic Forest runners created an unforgettable fairytale-like atmosphere that is perfectly suited for the Starlit Supper. Laura, of Ashton Events, says:

“The Starlit Supper is an inspiration shoot-turned-dinner party, in which a team of the most talented Tampa Bay and Central Florida wedding professionals collaborate to create a wedding (or rehearsal dinner) inspiration shoot, and then host all involved plus a few more wedding pro friends too! It’s an evening filled with great conversation, celebration of the end of another year, fabulous food, and nurturing friendships- everything that a good dinner party should entail!”

Hosted by an incredible team of wedding professionals at the private estate, Rocking H Ranch, get lost in the unforgettable film images from Hunter Ryan Photo and the lovely florals and design by Ashton Events below.

From Ashton Events:

This year’s inspiration was rooted in the venue: Rocking H Ranch. We’ve loved working there in the past and for Starlit Supper we focused on bringing in elements of romance, sophistication, and history to one of our favorite charming Southern venues.

The color palette all started with a picture of a pitcher. The soft, pastel colors were offset with touches of rich greens. The very bottom of the pitcher has a thin black line. That brought in a hint of refinement to the outdoor space. We echoed the black accents in the marbled runners from Nuage Designs and the print materials. We loved that the pastels allowed the colors to be feminine without being overtly feminine.

We will soon share more about our inspiration + design process over on our blog, but we loved the idea of mixing textures, contrasting soft palettes and as always for our designs: interaction. We love for guests to feel involved + inspired by every aspect of the event, and truthfully the details of the evening executed just that.

Weddings in NYC: A Conversation with Jes Gordon

This week all eyes are on New York City for Fashion Week, so we decided it couldn’t be a better time to sit down and chat with the ultimate NYC girl, Jes Gordon of properFUN. Drawing inspiration from the city and all its moving parts, Jes shared with us insightful details of her design and planning process, favorite places to visit, and even told us how she got started!

Check out the full interview and make sure not to miss all the stunning details of her magical events below!

Love Felt in the Five Senses

There are certain times of the year, we can’t help but fall head over heels in love with love. Valentine’s Day is a great reminder to include a little more romance in our events and in our personal lives. It can be challenging to to redefine romance when we’ve been taught it’s all about red roses and pink hearts. This year, Rebecca Rose Creative found a way to do it! She blew our minds with one of her unique styled shoots, filled with love and affection, and no pink hearts in sight.

What really got us about this shoot is how it touches each of our five senses. Absolutely breathtaking soft hues are accentuated by soft candlelight and a stunning custom watercolor pattern by Simply Jessica Marie – used on both the cake and as the liner to invitation envelopes. A sight for sore eyes!

Our Silver Velvet Linen adds so much to the element of touch – so smooth and warming, velvet is a texture that is impossible not to feel. The fresh floral aroma blossoming from the arrangements draws you in before you even sit down. And of course, the simply beautiful and delectable cake could not have been more ready to be cut and enjoyed.

We’ll go ahead and leave the last sense, hearing, to your imagination – a romantic partner’s voice leading you into this dream dinner design, perhaps?

Notes from Rebecca Rose Creative on the shoot:

This editorial shoot was styled and shot at The Lively Workshop for Photographers in October, 2015. The workshop was co-hosted by Rebecca Rose Creative and Perry Vaile Photography and held on location at the beautiful historic Graylyn Estate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

As part of the educational experience for our photographer attendees, we prepared several editorial shoots so that they could gain insight into the creative process of preparation, styling and photography instruction and have an opportunity to shoot the design content and model themselves. This particular shoot was planned in conjunction with Michelle Butler, the editor of Trendy Bride Magazine. As a speaker at the workshop, Michelle gave our attendees invaluable insight into the editorial process and then we were able to jointly share our inspiration for this shoot with the attendees as well so that they could be privy to the entire creative process from start to finish.

Our biggest challenges were seasonal considerations and the weather! This workshop took place in the fall, when the leaves were turning color. One of Michelle’s requests was for this shoot to include content that could transcend the season and be inspiring to couples planning and designing spring or summer weddings as well. We worked carefully to include soft colors in the palette (which is why we included blush!) and strategically select locations with Perry where we could ensure that fall foliage wouldn’t be within the view of her lens.

Michelle also requested the inclusion of a floral pattern, so we worked with Simply Jessica Marie! Jessica developed a beautiful watercolor pattern that we used on the cake and the liners of invitation envelopes. The week of the workshop, we learned of a terribly rainy weather forecast. Not ideal conditions for an editorial photo shoot! But we decided to embrace the challenge and demonstrate the beauty of a rainy wedding day by using the wet windows and surfaces to our aesthetic advantage. This was a great learning experience for all of the photographers who often have to tackle the elements on wedding days with very little warning. Nobody can control the weather!

Perry’s final film images came back just as we’d hoped and show a beautifully moody, rich and lively aesthetic that is perfect for any wedding day…rain or shine.

Hello Texas! A Conversation with Sandra & the I Do Soiree

With the recent launch of Nüage Designs Houston and our collaboration with Todd Events for this year’s I Do! Soiree, presented by Weddings in Houston Magazine, we couldn’t think of a better time to sit down with Sandra Contreras, our Head of Sales, in our newest location: Houston, Texas!

A lover of mixed metals and neutral tones, Sandra talked to us about her big move from Miami, FL to Houston, TX, her must-have linens of the moment, and the key to throwing the ultimate Texas event.  We also could not be more excited to be a party the I Do Soiree, coming up this week!  Read more on Sandra and the I Do Soiree below…

Heritage Plaid: A Beach Affair

Plaid – one of the most timeless patterns in modern fashion and design. Every year, regardless of trends, plaid always is a major force for fall and winter events. But what about when the seasons change? With the holidays now behind us and warmer days slowly breathing life into these chilly months, we are loving the working plaid into a fresh new season and pairing it with the most renewing backdrop: the beach.

This cozy seaside concept was breathtakingly executed by Kelsey of Kelsey Rae Designs. She assembled an A-Team of awesome visionaries in Connecticut to create what you’re about to enjoy. Pairing vintage china and stunning red & fuchsia florals with our Khaki, Wine & Black Plaid Runner and our Flax Metallic Burlap Napkins on a rugged farm table, Kelsey created a true winter escape.

Notes from Kelsey on the shoot:

“I’ve been traveling back and forth from Southern California to Connecticut, and I was inspired to pull together my favorite east coast vendors to do a shoot on the calm beach of Fairfield, CT during my last trip back east for the year. I partnered with Brooke Allison Photography to bring a unique twist to a winter shoot. We wanted to incorporate plaid with hints of ocean elements. Our bride model gleamed in a JLM Couture gown from A Little Something White Bridal Couture, while our male model posed in plaid.

I used a Southern California calligrapher, Louise Letters, to showcase her modern hand letting with an invitation suite and reception stationery that gave off a fun and youthful vibe. The florals blew me away! Carrie Wilcox is one of the most talented women I know and the way she arranged the centerpiece and bouquet, just left me breathless. She tied in vibrant colors and also included hints of berries- two opposites that seemed just to work.

Erica O’Brien is a wiz in the kitchen. I gave her what seemed like an odd task to interpret- use elements of the beach and winter. The cake she created was perfect! My shoots are never made possible without the help of Lauren Kreter of Borrowed, A Vintage Inspired Company. Her vintage china and styling is the very best! A huge thank you to East Coat Occasions and Amber Papastavros who adorned our model! I hope this shoot inspires beach lovers to bring in elements of the season and not be afraid to mix textures and patterns!”

A Conversation With Suzanne Reinhard & Anne Barge Fashion Show

Atlanta – the striking scenery, the small-town charm in a major metropolitan hub, the born and bred polish with big city edge, and of course the 2016 Anne Barge Fashion Show this week! It’s an amazing opportunity for us to see the latest trends coming up in bridal dresses for 2016, which couldn’t be more exciting! Designing one’s dream wedding often begins with a beautiful dress.

Returning to plan this year’s event, after planning last year’s successful inaugural show, is Suzanne Reinhard. Her philosophy of “Creating Luxury From Love” has manifested in some of the most memorable weddings in Atlanta. Coupled with Anne Barge’s latest collection, inspired by the “gardens of France,” this not an event to be missed!

Suzanne is a planner who is known to always go above and beyond for her clients, turning even the smallest special details about her bride and groom into something spectacularly unique to be shared with 250 of their closest friends. She makes every single wedding that she plans a one-of-a-kind experience. Not to mention how she consistently raises the bar in the epicurean arena!

There is also no one that understands Atlanta better than Suzanne, who believes that southern style encompasses three key elements: beauty, warmth, and sophistication.  With a major vision of turning this fashion show into an annual experience akin to NY Bridal Fashion Week, we decided to sit down with Suzanne to chat about her experience and philosophy in the weddings and event industry.

Impressionism: A French Inspired Wedding

A table design truly is a work of art and we can’t think of a more accurate example of this than with this table design inspired by the French Impressionism movement, which derives from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant.  With winter officially in full force, we are lost in dreams of warmer days ahead of us. That’s why this week we’re all about embracing soft textures, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette with this French Impressionist inspired wedding shoot. The super talented Emily March Photography and Rebecca Rose Creative created a stunning styled shoot inspired by the 19th century art movement, which means lots of soft textures and pastel shades that come together like an artist’s dream.

2016-1-12_photo-2

As she talks about the concept, the event stylist and floral designer, Rebecca Rose Creative says:

This shoot was inspired by the beauty of 19th century French Impressionist artwork. In designing these wedding ideas, we strove to give a modern take on French Impressionism, which is always characterized by soft textures that blend together, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette. The gown, by Elizabeth Dye, quickly became the perfect element of inspiration, with its classic, romantic silhouette and unique blue-gray tulle overlay. Artwork by Monet lines the envelopes on the invitation suite and the colors, textures, and details of a French garden party are recreated for a modern elegant dinner setting.

We just can’t get over all the beautiful little details! From the styling of the napkins to the beautifully handcrafted stationary, this shoot was truly a work of art.

Sparkles, Sequins & Bright Lights

Modern, ethereal, and regal were the guiding principles for the “Modern Love Story” styled shoot Scott and Cara Nava of Carasco Photography envisioned. When it comes to the ultimate New Year’s Eve celebration, this table design truly embodies the perfect combination of glam and a great time! The opulent setting was shot in the iconic structure that is now The Langham, Chicago, and was the last of its kind designed by architecture luminary, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

The regal tablescapes tied the theme together. A dazzling dose of gold accented a guest table with luxurious gilded linens, chargers, stemware, chairs, and their decorative sleeves. Ivory modern Louis chairs were striking at each end. A duo of tall vases with a hint of blush showcased arrangements that included roses, hydrangeas, and tulips in vanilla, magenta, and lavender tones were complemented by similar smaller bouquets in mercury glass urns. Fronted by a cluster of floral designs in the same pattern and palette, the sweetheart table was set apart with a sequined teal tablecloth. As a finishing touch, all place settings were topped with their own petite collection of pink roses.

New Year’s Eve in New York City!

New Years Eve – the absolute best time of the year to get glam, make declarations, drink bubbly, and to reflect on and enjoy the last moments of the holiday season before a fresh new year rings in, bringing endless possibilities with it.

For those of us in the industry, there is no better time to showcase our hosting talents than on NYE, when everyone is throwing elaborate affairs. So the question becomes how to do something really unique representing our personal style while keeping in the New Year’s Eve spirit?

This year, we are finding inspiration with three unique designs, influenced by NYC neighborhood – surely everyone will have a favorite to pick from. We teamed up with Ceci New York to curate some genius designer picks for the holiday season from our friends at Tinsel & Twine, jesGORDON/properFUN, and Matthew David Celebration.We invited them over to come up with some dream party designs at our New York studio combining Nuage Designs linens and Ceci New York placemats and name cards. No one got to see what the others were doing, and they each came up with their own interpretation for a  dinner party to inspire us all.

Check out the three stunning and magical looks below. They will certainly have you ready to host the ultimate New York New Years Eve party, no matter where you find yourself ringing in 2016!

BROOKLYN: Whimsical with Tinsel & Twine

Tinsel & Twine truly created a NYE fairytale with their magical table decor. There is just so much fun to be had at this table, and the mixture of our sparkling Emerald Sequin Taffeta–which really brings the table into NYE territory, with the addition of some furry woodland friends popping up in the dishware–showcases a party host that doesn’t take themselves too seriously and loves to have a good time. It’s impossible not to feel right at home with this decor. Check out the whimsical details below!

DOWNTOWN: Casual Elegance with Jes Gordon

Clean, cool, and beyond airy, Jes Gordon’s table design, featuring our Ivory Laurel linen, feels like what a brand new year represents – inspiring new beginnings.  Her use of winter roses and natural elements takes the table to the next level, while remaining true to the season. This is a table that doesn’t need to try too hard and one that really allows the elements to shine on their own accord. It really could not have been executed more flawlessly!

12-22_photo-1

UPTOWN: Luxe with Matthew David

Matthew David’s luxe, twinkling palette is what NYE dreams are made of – the ultimate celebration. He manages to play with different variables of the same elements–including our Victorian Gold Matte Satin Lined napkins and our Charcoal Sequin Taffeta napkin band–without ever causing the table to look overwhelming; instead, the gold palette flows seamlessly together into one stunning table that is literally impossible to take your eyes away from.

Luxe Fall/Winter Wedding in Indianapolis

We are just so in love with Ryan and Taryn’s stunning wedding celebration. The rich colors, unique textures, and gorgeous details reflect a balance of comfort and luxe, perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons.

Meticulously planned by Boldly Chic Events, the celebration featured beautiful florals by Meg Catherine Flowers, a lovely cake and macarons by Confectioneiress Cupcakes & Sweets, vintage deco stationery by Interpretations, and a mixture of textured linens by yours truly (including our Champagne Ruffle, Copper Crinkled Taffeta, and our Goldmine Faux Dupini).

Ryan and Taryn started the day with a glass of champagne, happy tears, and huge smiles. They tied the knot at the Indiana State House in front of over 200 guests. The beautiful fall day did not pass by unnoticed – the sun was shining and the temperature was what a fall bride dreams about for her big day! Cocktails, dinner and dancing continued at Crowne Plaza Hotel Indianapolis Downtown at Historic Union Station

Once the guests arrived at the main reception, they were greeted with a grand display of mini boxes with gold-labels on each. Once they found their name and opened their box, they found their table and mini macarons (one of the bride’s favorite treats)!

Lasercut Inspiration & A Conversation with Ceci New York

This week we are just so inspired by lasercut florals, an elegant new take on traditional designs. Lasercutting is an amazing tool that allows designers to play with various textures, layers, and sensibilities to craft memorable experiences for their clients.

Because of this, we were able to get together with Ceci Johnson from Ceci New York, the ultimate lasercut invitation designer, and collaborate on a few curated looks for you. Ranging from the modern to the vintage, from the art deco to the traditional, we’ve prepared a handpicked selection of delicate, but edgy modern lace options below. And don’t miss our amazing and insightful conversation with Ceci! Her story is nothing short of amazing and so inspirating to hear.

LASERCUT INSPIRATION GUIDE:

Wedding invitations are not all made the same. Each one has its own unique personality and style which draws inspiration from the couple’s story and shared experiences, as well as their dreams and vision for their big day. A wedding invitation is meant to be memorable, and to share emotions of joy and excitement to their family and friends.

Ultimately though, a wedding invitation is a precursor (a sneak peek, if you will) of the couple’s wedding celebration – setting the tone for what is to come. This week, we paired a few invitation styles from Ceci New York with a handpicked selection of our linens to give you some fresh inspiration for your next event.

a-graphic-story

ART DECO:

The Art Deco trend is glamorous enough to never go out of style. Geometric patterns, shiny metallics, striking contrasts and luxurious fabrics add drama and glamour to all sorts of weddings and events. The Art Deco style–which emerged as the arts & design movement in France during the 1920’s–features ornate and extravagant details, bold geometric forms and rich colors, with a general lavish and opulent approach.

In recent years the love of Art Deco has been revived with movies such as The Great Gatsby and since then we’ve been seeing this ever-growing trend being translated into various weddings and events. If you’re looking to bring out the Deco Glam on your next event, make sure to check out our White and Gold Deco, Natural Mini Koi, and Copper Sequin Taffeta below!

12-9_photo-1

VINTAGE:

The vintage trend is back with a bang. Its presence can be felt everywhere, especially in the fashion circuit and interior design; taking us back to a foregone era.

With its nostalgic value and eye-catching attributes, the “vintage” concept is creating ripples in the event industry for a reason! If you’re looking for a quaint and nostalgic feel on your next event, make sure to check out our Off White ShimmerPurple Big Lace, and Rose Iris below!

12-9_photo-2

TRADITIONAL:

For those who deeply value family traditions and look to incorporate it in their wedding, the traditional design can still be fun and modern! While your details may be inspired from Victorian influences, make sure that your table linens soften your look and are able to bring unity to all the elements at play. A few of our favorite options for this style are the White Iris, Taupe Victorian Lace, and our Ivory French Lace. Above all, keep in mind that the table is the center of the party for each guest, so don’t be afraid to make it a little fun!
