I'm thrilled to share this gorgeous styled shoot I did with a talented group of Austin Wedding vendors. This shoot was recently featured on 100 Layer Cake!! I decided to have Kate Goddard of Wild Sky Events be a guest blogger since she was the designer and planner for this lovely shoot.
Also, be sure to check out the cocktail recipe at the bottom of the post, compliments of Royal Fig Catering!
From Kate, Design Process:
"I was on vacation in Taos, New Mexico last year and was so inspired by the beautiful landscapes, textures and tones which set the texture palette for this styled shoot. I wanted to create a look that incorporated sienna tones, copper and brass but also mixed in woven textures, ceramics and prints. It was important to me that the overall look focused on handwoven, hand-thrown and handmade elements as a way of giving warmth to the design.
La Tavola Linens has a beautiful 2015 collection and I have been waiting for the chance to use their new oyster fern runners for some time. Since the linen pattern was so prominent I wanted to go with a big pop of color for the napkins and those paired perfectly with Loot Vintage Rentals new Leslie Freeman ceramic plates.
I am always a fan of mixing metals so I couldn't resist using the copper moscow mule cups as the main glass accent and I love how all the copper and sienna tones play throughout the whole table. I tried to incorporate the metal accents throughout with the accent detailing on the stoneware candles to the brass candlesticks.
Gretchen with Petals Ink did such an amazing job with the centerpiece and incorporating such unique floral elements.
Royal Fig knocked it out the park with our cocktails and it was so much fun working with Loot's vintage items to figure out exactly the best way to style these gorgeous drinks!"
