Office Tour on Style Me Pretty

Eastern Shore Wedding Planner & Event Designer

featured, Studio

We couldn’t be more thrilled to finally share Natalie Franke’s fabulous photos from the Kari Rider Events office tour recently featured on Style Me Pretty Living. A two-month renovation right on the cusp of wedding season called for a few quick decisions and a lot of trust. Fortunately, Kari’s eye for design and vision for the space made everything seamless (or at least that’s how we choose to remember the process!). Drawing inspiration from the understated elegance inherent to Maryland’s Eastern Shore, Kari layered cool grays and brilliant whites with wood tones and mixed metals to create a setting that’s in a word: dreamy. It’s rustic romance meets coastal chic, with a touch of whimsy via our darling bar cart that’s always prepared for Happy Hour!

Patriotic Peach Pomegranate Fizz Recipe

Entertaining, Styled Shoots

Happy Fourth! This weekend is all about celebrating the land of the free and the home of the brave in signature summer
fashion—which means patriotic cocktails are an absolute must! We love this super refreshing Peach Pomegranate Fizz made
with Van Gogh Cool Peach vodka. Its subtle red hue from the organic pomegranate juice is festive without going over the top, especially when paired with a skewer of fresh blueberries. So here’s to you America! To freedom, to opportunity, to libations!

Peach Pomegranate Fizz

2 oz. Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka
4 oz. Organic Pomegranate Juice
Splash of Prosecco
Garnish with peaches and blueberries
