See Canyon Fruit Ranch Moroccan, Bohemian Wedding Inspiration
When I first contacted Taylor, I told her I really wanted to do a funky, bohemian inspiration shoot! She took that idea and ran with it, and I love what she came up with!! Yesterday all of our planning came together at See Canyon Fruit Ranch, and we had amazing photoshoot thanks to all of our great vendors! Big thanks to our lovely couple Carrie and Jeff for modeling for us. These funky, fun, unique weddings are just my style!!!
So many of you know that we are going to be in the Bridal Expo this Sunday. Thinking about what you want to display in your booth is a difficult concept, considering this is my FIRST bridal expo. I really wanted a white shag rug to go on the floor in my booth. After Creigslisting and thrift shopping for days I gave up and decided that I am going to paint a rug I already had.
The rug we have was given to us (meaning free) so if I messed it up my husband didn’t care! I changed my look all together. I wanted a white chevron print and this is how I made it happen!
I took a 12×12 piece of cardstock as my measuring tool. Using masking tape, I made a boxes across the rug and down the rug (this is not shown). Then I connected the diagonals (shown). Remember when taping the diagonals to keep the tape on the right side of the corner consistently.
With an X-Acto knife I started cutting off the straight lines an kept the diagonal ones.
Then I took the rug outside (after 2 days of just taping!) and started painting with regular flat wall paint I bought at Minors. I started with the edges and used a roller to get the center.
After 3 coats it finally looked like this. . .
Now this part I didn’t think about when taping out my print. The tan section will be 2 inches longer than the white, so I used this to my advantage. I taped out another line under my white chevron to add a pop of blue that in my booth.
After letting that dry I took all the tape off.
Although this rug is for my booth, I put it in my house where it went originally. And this is the final project!
Come check out my booth at the Bridal Fair at the Madonna Inn on April 14th! I hope you enjoyed.
I have a love hate relationship with Styled Shoots, after last years readers pole told me you lot didn’t like them I stopped featuring them. Then a couple of weeks ago I featured this winter shoot from Photos by Zoe and it went down a treat. For that reason I have decided to dip my toe in the styled shoot water again and see what you think of this one!
When I first saw this submission I fell in love with it! The bride, THAT flower crown, the hair (I have serious hair envy going on) the location, the light, the moss….oh and the cat! gotta love a cat in a styled shoot! So with all those factors added up together there was no way I couldn’t share this shoot with you.
Thank you to Kelsea Holder Photography for sending me in these amazing images. Do make sure you tell me what you think of the shoot, and if you are happy to see styled shoots make a return to the Blog!
Kelsea tells us more about the shoot………….
A lovely garden in the woods has flourished at Lago Giuseppe Cellars & Event Site! This styled shoot is perfect for the nature-loving bride, providing a gorgeous outdoor wedding venue and all the little flowery details you could dream up.
Lago Giuseppe Cellars is nestled on the banks of a small lake surrounded by the tranquility of a waterfall and ancient oak trees. It truly is a photographer’s dream! Working with the natural landscape at this venue, Lilies of the Field created a beautiful table design that is swoon-worthy. This smilax-covered table seems to grow out of the earth, embellished with flowers, moss, and deer antlers. Apothecary jars holding fresh mushrooms and flowers create fun, unique centerpieces.The bride’s soft red hair is topped with a crown made of peach and white roses, fiddleheads, green ranunculus, and begonia leaves. She holds a bouquet to match. We have even featured a custom piece; a heart frame made of fresh willow and flowers. You can use this piece as décor or even as a fun addition to your wedding photos! To top off this classic and whimsical look, the oversized headpiece is paired with an Allure Bridal gown with a lace overlay, keyhole back, and Queen Elizabeth neckline.
A fun element Taylor Made Events and Design brought to this shoot was subtly bringing the indoors outside by using vintage chairs and a velvet couch with the head table, which are also rentals from Lilies of the Field. Funky lampshades and a gorgeous chandelier were also used to embellish the land and provide a unique, fun wedding design! The mixture of overgrown, flowery décor as well as refined classic pieces emulates the sense of effortless, natural beauty on your wedding day!
I am very excited to tell everyone that Taylor Made has teamed up with Pink Cloud 9!
Pink Cloud 9 is the largest wedding coordination service. It give brides a unique and creative way to feel confident the day of your wedding. Their customizable planning approach for brides and grooms makes convenient way to plan!
The best part is that they are so reasonably priced. The price is based off of guest count, so it is affordable for your wedding.
Having a large wedding party can be tough to photograph. One of my best friends photographer did a great job on thinking outside the box. She took two white ladders and connected it with a piece of sturdy wood. The bride and groom were boosted up on the wood a the rest is in the picture.
This is a cute one of the bide and good using the ladder to create a beautiful memory.
Just because my best friend is so beautiful….I had to add this one.
With the start of the year, we see different authorities begin to predict trends that will affect the design community as a whole whether in fashion design, interior design, product design, or event design. One forecast that I usually pay attention to is given by Pantone who is the top dog when it comes to color use in the various deign disciplines. They have announced that Emerald Green is the 2013 Color of the Year. I will usually embrace their selection and see how I can pair it with other colors to create palettes that will inform project designs. Here are 5 color combos that incorporate the 2013 Color of the Year.
