With the whirlwind that was 2013, we’re a bit behind on sharing! So, here we go with the first of many posts that we’re excited to blog about.

First off is this spread from Seattle Met Bride & Groom Magazine’s Summer/Fall 2013 issue. It was shot at the beautiful modern and rustic Cast Iron Studios in Bellevue. The inspiration was rough-hewn white-on-white industrial. Our design included unique florals that looked like they’d been poured into our antique metal basket by July Floral Design. Also included was stunning letterpress paper goods by Two Thousand Pounds of Letterpress, a wonderful new printer in Fremont. A La Modo cake slice boxes were used as favors, tied with antique raw silk ribbons and adorned with customized flatware. The vintage metal chairs and candlesticks were from Scout. The hand-painted pillows, napkins and table runner were by Honey Brush. And the cakes and delicious food items were all provided by Cast Iron Studios.

Blueberry Harvest Wedding Inspiration with Jasmine Star

We were excited to have our latest styled shoot featured on Style Me Pretty and The Jasmine Star Photography Blog today! Below are images of our designs, shot by JD and Jasmine Star. The vision was to create a worldly palette with mixed patterns and textures; it translates well as a summer or fall palette.

This shoot was also the premier of Sugarcomb’s new Paper Goods services! We are in the process of launching our full collection…find more details here!

“Foundation of Love.” A Styled Shoot with Jasmine Star

creativeLIVE-creativeLIVE-0002

This spring, I had the tremendous privilege to begin working with Jasmine Star and CreativeLIVE on an exciting styled shoot project. Jasmine came to Seattle in April to teach a 3-day CreativeLIVE course to photographers on how to shoot an editorial wedding, Sugarcomb was brought in to create her live set design, which was used as part of the classroom experience.

We started with the story of who our bride and groom were – a savvy fashion blogger and a detailed architect, and took the design from there. I designed a concept based on water-washed feminine elements and structural images that came together to create a bright, angular and floral heavy wedding reception that was a balanced blend of the bride and groom. It took place in an empty industrial photography studio where we collaborated with a fabulous team of builders and wedding pros to put our vision together. Here are is a sampling of the images that Jasmine shot live during the class…

We’re featured on Grey Likes Weddings today with Jasmine Star!

I was honored to be invited to be a part of photographer Jasmine Star‘s latest CreativeLive workshop on shooting an editorial. We worked together in the months leading up to April’s shoot – I designed a set for Jasmine to use in her class where she could show her students how a live editorial shoot works and what shots and techniques are important. Jasmine’s final images were chosen to be featured today on the Grey Likes Weddings blog! Yay! More images are on Jasmine’s site today as well, and I’ll share more in the future including inspiration sketches and design details. Click below to view Summer’s full post on Grey Likes Weddings.

Untitled 2

It was a thrill to contribute to a Seattle Bride design editorial that is featured in their current issue (pages 104 – 114). Paper Parade  uses bright colors to display new concepts of how to incorporate paper goods into your wedding, “…from playful centerpieces to patterned backdrops and chandeliers, creative new uses for paper are grabbing the spotlight.”

I designed and hand-painted a graphic yellow backdrop for one of the photographs. The idea could be customized and used as a backdrop for a dessert or escort card table. It was so much fun to collaborate with Seattle Bride! Many thanks to Megan Arpin and Brittany Allen for their work on the shoot. It was photographed for the magazine by Hayley Young.

I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally July! Wedding season, warm weather and the new issue of Seattle Met Bride & Groom. I had the pleasure of coordinating a tablescape design for the issue. It’s a wedding concept inspired by a Skagit Valley fruit stand, full of strawberries and a mix of rustic & refined elements. Pick up your copy soon! Here are a few shots:
