Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing a lot of photos from the weddings we designed this summer. I thought it would be best to start with a couple that is very special to me. When my sister Lindsay got engaged to Andrew almost two years ago, I was excited by the opportunity to work with a couple who completely trusts my design skills and would allow me to run with their vision and dreams for their wedding. We decided to style the wedding around Lindsay’s love of Europe, especially the romantic city of Paris. We used antique gold vessels from Nostalgia, and Mark from Shamrock and Thistle filled them with gorgeous blooms in their ivory, blush, peach, and black color palette.
True to Parisian culture, we create a patisserie filled with whimsical cupcakes and authentic European sweets like Paris Brest, Macarons, and Opera Cake from Delice European Bakery. We also brought in Lindsay and Andrew’s obsession with their cat Monkey. (I refer to their cat as my nephew, because they talk about him like he’s their child.) We referenced him in the Patisserie name which translates to “The Little Kitten Pastry Shop”. We also placed a custom sticker of a cat with a word bubble that read “Miam Miam” (which is French for “yum yum”) on the inside of the take home patisserie boxes as a little surprise for guests.
It was a beautiful wedding, so please enjoy all of the stunning images below captured by Love Equals.
