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!
When you design a shoot that perfectly matches your branding, you become completely obsessed with sharing the photos! Case in point with this romantic and ethereal shoot recently featured in Weddings Unveiled magazine. Staying true to our love of neutrals, we took our inspiration for this shoot from the textures, hues and patina of the Tuscan coast. Hints of dusty blues, light wood finishes and mixed metals fused with a greenery-driven floral plan to create a Misty Mediterranean scene that flowed perfectly with the bayside landscape of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. We seriously can’t get enough of this one!
