Unconventional Wedding Design

Unconventional Wedding Design

More and more we are finding that brides are taking the unconventional approach to their wedding design.  Joining forces with the amazing floral designer Nancy Liu Chin, we sought to create a wedding look to inspire those looking to make a statement in a beautiful way.  We were so lucky to collaborate on this look with so many wonderful vendors, and we can’t wait to share with you these lovely images from the talented, Kevin Chin.

The color palette focused around blacks, shades of yellow, and a few touches of dusty blue and muted greens.  With the table design we layered textures from La Tavola Linens  – a floral eyelet design on top of muted yellow with a velvet napkin.  Dark containers, candlesticks and rounded back chairs bring a depth to the overall look.  Bringing the look together are mustard colored goblets, abundant florals and fresh fruit for a unique pop.  The trio of centerpieces offers variations in height which adds an organic flow along with the open nature of the arrangements.

Mustard colored goblets from Hensley Event Resources tied in the florals with place settings and velvet napkins.  A simple, sleek flatware design remains understated while the feminine place settings brought just the right amount of detail to each place setting.

Florals of ranunculus, peonies, and roses offer a romantic look.  We added cut pears, grapefruit and lemons to tie the look together and bring a little color to the tabletop.

An uncommon twist – yes, a black dress!  This black gown from Kinsley James Couture Bridal added the right contrast with the yellow and green floral palette.  This formal cut dress by designer Tara LaTour, makes this moody look so fitting.  Behind our lovely model, Jole, a wall installation of creeping vine foliage – a simple way to make a plain wall interesting!  The well-known work of Maria Chang of PMA brought her beauty with natural hair and makeup to tie the look together.

This gorgeous vintage chair from Found Vintage Rentals displays this lush floral bouquet and black detailed shoes from Bella Belle.

The invitation suite brings the entire look together with gorgeous calligraphy from Lamplight Lettering and overall design by Elsa Madeline.  With a lovely velvet box to display the engagement ring in from The Mrs Box, all of the details make this so special!  

A simple cake design from A Spoonful of Sugar Cakes was perfection.  We love the sugar floral additions to tie in with the rest of the wedding style.   The cake table is styled with fresh cut fruit and taper candles to mirror the dining table.  

When creating a look for your wedding day, it’s important to remember the design doesn’t stop with visuals.  When it comes to catering and entertaining your guests, the food can be quite the show stopper!  The day following our shoot we partnered with Betty Zlatchin Catering to host a luncheon for local wedding vendors and we have to say, we were amazing with the deliciousness this catering staff brings!

Romantic Blush and Grey Wedding

Style Inspired Shoot at Studio 817

Romantic blush and grey wedding blush linens metal chair wedding blush wedding plannerWorking on this shoot was an absolute dream! Our team of creatives combined tapered candles with soft velvet linens and gunmetal chairs to create our tabletop design for this Romantic Blush and Grey Wedding. Soft plant-dyed silk chiffon throws from Tan Weddings & Events adorned our wooden dessert bar and sweetheart table. Combining feminine textures to the more contemporary and rustic pieces gave us that romantic urban feel we wanted. Moody looks from our bride, dripping tapered candles, and sheer necklines gave us the drama.

Fairytale Wedding Shower is the Beginning of Happily Ever After

 

If a dream is a wish your heart makes, then Brittany and Jonathan's co-ed wedding shower was an afternoon straight out of a fairytale. Designed and produced by Parker Nichols, this soirée was what dreams are made of.

If a dream is a wish your heart makes, then Brittany and Jonathan’s co-ed wedding shower was an afternoon straight out of a fairytale. Hosted by Brittany’s Aunt Angela, this sweet soirée was full of decadent treats, exciting food stations and always entertaining bridal shower games.

To begin, the guests noshed on different food stations from Jackson Catering and Events. Guests were also entertained by harpist Rick Tan from Tan Weddings and Events for the full magical experience. Soft and lush florals from Thistle and Honey filled the space, as well as added the perfect feminine touch to our balloon installation from The Party Concierge. This event was one for the books and we swooned seeing the look on our bride’s face when she entered the shower of her dreams.

Emily Murphey Designs created custom printed Cinderella and Prince Charming silhouettes for our bar facade, as well as hand painted signage to place throughout our event. Lyricson mini scrolls imprinted “A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes” were placed in each favor box accompanying hand painted cookies.

Next, Paper Heart Patisserie designed the most breathtaking cake that was the perfect combination of whimsical and contemporary with straight lines and gilded floral details. Tone-on-tone blues with decadent details made this cake fit for any princess. Finally, we further adorned the dessert table with rose colored cupcakes, hand-painted salted caramel macarons and cookies and cream cake shots.

As Fairy Godmother said, “Even miracles take a little time!” We would love to start planning your event right out of a fairytale! For more information, visit us here.

Chic & Contemporary Event Planning Ideas

When National Linen Company, also known as Creative Coverings, reached out to us to help plan their 2018 Spring Showcase we were beyond thrilled to collaborate with them. We started brainstorming about the look and feel of their event. It longed to be fun, hip, and something our event community hadn’t seen before.

The Event

The new industrial chic retail district, the Ice Blocks located in Midtown Sacramento, was the perfect fab location. Choosing to hold the event in a new hot eatery opening spring 2018, it gave us the opportunity to preview the space and sample some of their tasty bites. As an added bonus, Milk Money Donuts impressed our guests with over the top, artfully created treats.

First we paired Creative Coverings new 2018 linen line with blooms from Thistle and Honey Floral Design and balloon installations from The Party Concierge in chrome hues for this afternoon
soiree. Deep jewel tones and soft velvets encased the space and were the perfect compliment to this contemporary, yet oh so chic, venue.

Celebrations Party Rentals partnered with us for the finishing touches and provided superb options for our design table, guest seating and other tabletop items. Clear phantom chairs, gold flatware and new marble trays brought our vision to life. Giggle and Riot brought the party, as always, with their interactive photo booth. We absolutely fell in love with the custom backdrop created by Creative Coverings and Thistle and Honey.

We combined one of Creative Coverings’ new linens with dried blooms and the result was truly beautiful. The talented Carmen Salazar Photography captured the event, while Matt Brys from Extreme Production kept our guests grooving all afternoon!

See you next year! 

We were so happy to have 100 plus event professionals join us for this pop-up industry event and we can’t wait to see them again in 2019 for our next showcase!

Modern Fling—Kimpton Sawyer Hotel Wedding

Parker Nichols Events & Design designed and produced the recent contemporary wedding stylized shoot at The Kimpton Sawyer Hotel. This new Sacramento hotel brings a modern flair to the Capitol.

With the recent opening of Kimpton Sawyer Hotel, Sacramento brides rejoice at the prospect of having their wedding at this sleek, modern hotel. I was able to partner with Danielle Roe Events on this styled shoot to make Kimpton Sawyer come alive! Named one of the top photographers in the United States, local photographer Charleton Churchill captured this avant-garde affair.

Kimpton’s natural elements, interwoven with sleek finishes, were the perfect backdrop to this contemporary shoot. For the attire, we went wild over the bride’s sexy contemporary gown, designed by Project Runway-Israel designer, Alon Livine. The groom wore a classic, yet chic, black Armani suit.

The vision of Shannon Mahoney with Thistle and Honey Floral Design was to create organic textures mixed with elegant flowers to create the unique contrast between natural texture and contemporary blooms. Another exclusive element was the paper suite created by Love Notes Paper Company. Using masculine materials like white leather she was able to keep the papiere modern, clean and exquisite. For the table settings, a matte black flatware from Theoni collection and washed stone dishware from Standard Party Rentals was chosen. Velvet lines by La Tavola Fine Linens added a feminine soft edge, along with the glow of traditional candlesticks illuminating the space.

Staying with the classic yet modern theme, the cake, created by Amanda Ngo of Paper Heart Patisserie, was a three dimensional geometric piece of art. Offsetting the neutral cork wall and laid atop a Carrera marble cake holder, this piece of artistry, decorated with fresh flowers, merged clean and modern.
