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…

There is a lot of contrast in this inspiration board that all blends well together. The soft flowy fabric and the structured pattern in the vases and furniture. The delicate pink and the strong blue. All so different but they can tell a beauty story when put together, well balanced and full of love.

Pink has been a popular wedding color for ages. Lately the pink and chocolate brown trend may be what comes to mind. Here is an elegant way to use the girly color in a way that makes a slightly different statement. Paired with a muted teal blue, a warm champagne and a rich charcoal, it delivers a polished look with a luxe antique flair. It is an ideal color combination to use with old furniture pieces, vintage china and mercury glass vases with timeless pale roses. Warm, inviting and nostalgic. Perfect for reminding your guests that they are there to celebrate an age old tradition, this style plays to the important history that wedding’s have held in our lives for generations.Click on the Polyvore collection for information on where you can purchase any of the items.
As a designer, I find inspiration everywhere. One of my favorite things to do is flip though the latest runway shows on style.com. I get crazy inspired by the latest shows; the textures, the colors, the hairstyles. On a recent drool-fest through the Sonia Rykiel Spring 2010 RTW show pictures knew I had to make a color palette out of a few of my favorite shots. The muted lilac, vibrant citrus and pops of bold, saturated colors are so rich and would look delicious whether in your closet, living room or at your wedding. Yum!

This week’s palette is warm and toasty for December, but would be fitting at anytime of year. Pulling from peacock feather tones, this acid gold and rich navy are a beautiful contrast that make for a bold and sophisticated statement.

Their wedding was on one of the most beautiful days of September. These two are so in love, one of THE sweetest ceremonies I have ever seen. On a day full of great memories, my two favorite are Emily’s genuine happiness minutes before she went down the aisle, “Oh my gosh, I am so excited!”, and then the best recession song of all time, Queen – You’re my Best Friend. Enjoy the photos by the amazing Sarah Rhoads Photographers.
