When the Current Moves Thru You...Styled Shoot with I Do Events

Love & electricity was definitely in the air, and yet there was a sense of serenity that was somehow captured in every single frame! Styled shoots are always so fun because it's where we really allow our creative juices to flow freely! It's also our favorite way to showcase the inherent beauty of the small details, which is too often missed during the excitement of a wedding! Here's some breathtaking views for your viewing pleasure & wedding inspo!

Pair the formal with the leisure:A combination of rectangle (or round) tablescapes with lounge furniture creates a more relaxed environment allowing guests to nosh & mingle freely without feeling like they are confined to one spot! Be bold; mix up your seating arrangement with different chair styles to instantly add more space, visual interest, and a unique look!

Mix the muted with the bold: shades of gray with deeply imbued hues such as berry or wine creates a perfect backdrop for a rich, dark, moody and romantic feel! A simple color scheme is ideal for those who want to play up the small details such as a unique napkin fold, and leafy embellishments.

Add Simplicity with the Grand: the panoramic views that often accompany a rooftop wedding can be so captivating, but a couple shouldn't have to compete for attention on their big day. Carefully designed decor elements such as the gold founder lanterns, chiavari chairs, garden light draping and berry backdrop help to anchor the ceremony space against the vastness of the landscape  
Combine the Industrial with the Intimate: The color combo, lush greenery and layered place settings (see image below) juxtaposed to the urban landscape all come together to create an intimate ceremony and reception! Check below for more eye candy!

What a match made in Heaven! Couldn't you imagine this being you...

 This should be you!

On the Waterfront-The Pianca/O'Donnell Wedding

As Wedding/Event Stylists; we often get so caught up in the transformation process that we often don't the opportunity to see all the finishing touches come together. However; thanks to our wonderful photographer friends; we get to share some wonderful photos with you, so that you can relish in the beauty of the decor & the special moments captured in time!

~Pianca/O'Donnell Wedding~

Featuring: a classic white color scheme with gold mesh overlays. The ceiling draping & lighted chandelier with a customized backdrop is undeniably the most breathtaking element in the entire room!     

An aerial view of a beautiful floral wreath wrapped around a trio of pedestal cylinders, which effortlessly emit a soft glow and romantic feel! Notice how nicely the burgundy napkins accent the metallic gold mix of the champagne sequin runner & gold charger plates!

A close up view of the gold candelabra with etched glass votives. It's metallic finish, narrow base and commanding height is an ideal centerpiece for venues with tall or cathedral ceilings!

Another tall centerpiece boasting of curved glass accents, lush greenery and cascading purple florals, which is a great way to add a natural look with just a pop of color!

A highlight of the dessert bar/table...because cake isn't the only food in the room that deserves the spotlight!

It's all in the small details! Isn't interesting how one can feel the love, warmth, and dedication by just how they gently caress & hold each other's hands. They are are clearly off to a great start to wedded bliss!   

We'd like to thank John & Chelsey O'Donnell for sharing this special moment with us, and we wish them eternal love, happiness & prosperity!
