Candace & David // Late September

Awesome couple!! You have to read my Blog to understand how this wedding snowballed into perfection. Regarding the details … I have worked at the Inn at Erlowest since the ballroom was opened. In fact, I styled three of the room layouts for the photo shoot that introduced the room. Last year alone, we did 17 weddings in that space. Each beautiful … but … something about this one created a perfect storm of detail.

When I worked with Lindsay Landman a few weeks ago at the Sagamore, she had rented bar wraps for the event. They were great, but very difficult to move (SO HEAVY) and arrived in huge boxes that took three people to carry. I loved the idea and how crisp the bar looked. So, I built one! Once I wrapped it in cream pleather, and added a custom logo, it was SMOKING HOT!

The newly-built bar was set up in the ballroom at Erlowest for the wedding. We created a lounge area using a pit-style seating group, gold charivari chairs and pin spots, courtesy of my boys at CPRC. Then we added some killer lamps from my store and two Alice Chairs to help align the modern look of the pit group with the bones of the room, and … this event’s design was ON.

Flowers for the event were nothing short of the season’s best, with a splash of product from Holland that we had flown in the week of the wedding.

Our design on this room included: flowers, linen, napkins, chargers, furniture, lounge, lighting and layout coupled with a selection of other professionals that were the perfect fit for this client.

Congrats. David and Candace! And, thank you a again, to Valerie Bleser of Northeastern Fine Jewelers for making the introduction.

Also, I’d like to thank Ben at IAE for letting me steal the collar stays from his shirt for the groom. I’m sending a package your way as an apology for violating your shirt … you saved the day.
