Sharing this wedding was a long time coming, but hopefully worth the wait.  Elizabeth Messina is an icon in our industry.  One who has the gift and magic of capturing light through her lens.  She seizes time and crystallizes heartfelt moments with a click and the charm of her gifted eye for composition.  When our bride Veronica mentioned she splurged on photography, I knew we were all in for something incredible. Featured in the premier issue of the London based, Reverie Magazine, Veronica and Evan’s celebration was brimming with carefully curated details.  Possibly my favorite of the day were the […]

I pulled two designs from the production table this week first for their wow color and attention grabbing textures.  Two very different approaches to color here, but both equally as impactful.

On Tuesday we were guests […]

To honor the many street artists we enjoyed in Paris, I hired […]
