Copper Inspired Sweetheart Table

Category: Favorites | December 1st, 2017

I have to admit that I love a good celebration! This look was inspired by the warm tones in these wonderful copper lanterns. When Oriental Trading contacted me about creating a look I couldn’t wait to order. The items came very quickly and it was like Christmas opening so many boxes. My favorite project was finishing the look for the glass terrarium. I used Minwax in a classic gray to stain the base of the terrarium with two coats. After it was dry the washi tape was added around the middle to finish the look. It is a great way to hold advice or notes to the couple while they are at their sweetheart table. The boxwood garland was plenty long and I loved following the natural bend to know where to put the lanterns. To finish the look I weaved magnolia branches into  the front of the design. The large candle in the middle is a battery operated light so that the leaves inside would not burn. We hope you enjoy this wedding decor inspiration.

Awards from the Fall Competition of PPO

Category: featured, Misc. | December 1st, 2017

While the best recognition we receive is to have our couples refer us to their friends and family we are also excited to receive awards from our peers in the industry. I was unable to attend the awards presentation in person in November but one of my fellow local photographer friends brought the awards to a local meeting. They are so cool! Because I was tagged when I won the awards these aren’t new but I have to say I love the trophies!
