It may have taken a little longer than we would have liked, but we finally got our act together to complete the last piece of our rebrand, and we’re totally obsessed! As part of complete rebrand, we knew we wanted to design a custom client gift that reflects how excited we are to work with each and every one of our brides and grooms to be. So, naturally, we turned to the experts at Marigold & Grey, and Jamie did not disappoint! She designed a gift that perfectly showcases the Kari Rider Events brand while at the same time celebrating the special journey our couples are about to embark on. I mean, how can you go wrong with a mini bottle of champs, artisan chocolates and a grey pashmina—all wrapped up in the most adorable white hat box with dusty blue and gold accents? We’re still swooning!
Everybody loves a good old-fashioned ice cream party. Am I right?! Well, we’ve found a way to take our childhood delight to the next level—just add bubbly! Sorbet floats are the perfect summer refreshment—cool and crisp with a side of nostalgia. They’re basically summer in a glass! So why not gather the girls for an ice cream party of your own this summer? We promise it’ll offer a bit more punch than your ice cream parties of old! Enjoy!
Working on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, we love finding new ways to incorporate coastal elements into wedding designs. And while we’re huge fans of getting creative with oyster shells, we thought we’d change things up this time and design a mini shoot around the oyster’s cousin—the mussel shell!
Playing up the shell’s charcoal gray color, we went for a monochromatic look, finding the perfect patterns to complement the scheme in a Serena & Lily runner and a Canvas Home napkin. Layered mussel shells gave off just the right vibe, especially once softened by low-lying, glass-toped florals and simple votives. Add in a few other details like a gorgeously messy blackberry pavlova and a classic mint julep, and you’ve got the makings of a perfectly themed mini shoot captured by the fabulous Renee Hollingshead! Enjoy!
