Kimberly Crest w/ Tonya Joy Photography ~ Part II

Here’s the second part of my Kimberly Crest shoot with Twine Events and Tonya Joy Photography. I love the details on this one, and have been excited to share them ever since I got the photos back.

1OakandtheOwl_Pink Peony Bridal Bouquet

Katrina Kirk killed it on hair and make-up as always. Our model looked amazing and is so naturally beautiful. We were lucky to have her join us. I made the bridal bouquet super big and somewhat pave for this shoot. It’s full of peonies, garden roses, dusty miller, and I finished it off with hand died velvet ribbon.

3OakandtheOwl_Sequined Chair Covers

I randomly came up with the idea of creating a floral chandelier out of embroidery hoops. Trying to find a location at Kimberly Crest where I could hang it was a challenge, but I somehow made this tree work. Tonya kindly photo shopped my fishing wire out of the shots, but in an actual event, the space would have to be rigged beforehand to hang the chandelier. I think it’s a different and beautiful touch to a garden style wedding or bridal shower.

Here’s another example of Small Masterpiece’s amazing inventory. The knife rests kill me. So uncommon and lovely. They supplied all the china, flatware, and glassware.

7OakandtheOwl_Small Masterpiece

Erica came up with these adorable favors to have at each plate. She wrapped them in antique handkerchiefs from Small Masterpiece. I think this is a perfect set-up for a ladies luncheon.

8OakandtheOwl_Pink La Tavola Linens

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’m a huge fan of sparkles and sequins, so I was excited to use La Tavola’s New York linens again, this time in their Blush chair covers. We went a big rogue with the table cover and it ended up a little more 80’s salmon than we wanted, but it still accomplishes the job of pretty and feminine. If we were to do it again, I think I’d choose a pale pale blush on top with a lacy tulle underneath. This way the chairs would be the more dominant color and pop off the background a bit more.

10OakandtheOwl_Wiley Valentie Menu

Wiley Valentine created the prettiest paper goods suite for us to use. I stood the menus up in a bed of peonies, garden roses, and hydrangeas. Then we placed the escort cards in front of each favor. I love all these luxe feminine touches.

12OakandtheOwl_Floral Scale

For the escort cards I used Tonya’s vintage scale and filled it with blossoms. Then I tucked the cards in it as well as down on the table below. We also placed the beautiful cake from Rafi’s Pastry and Cakes on the table next to it.

Phew! I finally blogged this baby. I hope you enjoyed everything as much as I did putting it together. There are some great ideas for your wedding or event here, and I’d love to see other peoples interpretation of them. I’ll be back next week with something… I just don’t know what yet. ;-)
