My heart may belong to Philadelphia (and Bucks County!), but New York City has its own magic that simply cannot be replicated by any other city. The energy I feel when I’m in NYC for any reason is contagious. I wonder about the lives of the ladies and gents walking the city streets – are they heading to a fabulous event; do they live in the city; where do they work? – and I’m constantly inspired by the incredible views that can be seen on the ground and high above the city skyline in a penthouse.
Because of my love for New York City, I was honored and beyond thrilled when I was asked to create a suite of stationery for a photo shoot and photography workshop. The workshop took place at Studio 450. The space is the complete definition of modern, but the team, which included Kristin Rockhill, A Touch of Elegance Events, and Pink Cake Box among others, transformed it into one that incorporated sleek style with the added touch of chic glam.
Studio 450’s penthouse suite served as the home base for the shoot, and the team expertly created quite a few looks throughout. I adore the outdoor ceremony space with its organically styled arch – the cascading greenery and gorgeous pink florals are so eye-catching! And, I became transfixed when I caught my first glimpse of the indoor ceremony space with its modern, elegant arch that featured frames and fabric draped through them – such a cool touch. The Kleinfeld Bridal gowns were a mixture of beading, lace, and organza, and they fit the glam-infused shoot perfectly. Not to mention, they looked particularly gorgeous paired with the incredible bouquets (so many different looks!) and reception spaces (pink linens, mercury glass, whimsical china, and chandeliers all played a part!).
Whenever I design stationery for shoots, the designer or planner provides me with an inspiration board and direction. But, it’s always such a thrill to see my pieces in action! In this case, I adored having the opportunity to create a floral wedding invitation, menus, and table numbers.
I hope you enjoyed seeing a peek at all of the beauty included in this shoot photographed by Vanessa Joy, and there’s even more on Strictly Weddings! Make sure to hop over to their blog too. xo
