Exquisite Weddings Magazine Table Scape

I can not fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.

Fitzwilliam Darcy to Elizabeth Bennet
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

We're so lucky to be able to partner with artistic dynamos whose enthusiasm for creativity is beyond inspiring. This summer, such a collaboration was formed to create a table top for Exquisite Weddings Magazine (as seen on pages 118-119). We brainstormed an homage to romance through the ages with Sharon Mintz/Organic Elements and designed a Victorian shabby-chic dessert table with unexpected accents and highlights.

Red Letter Days and Organic Elements certainly didn't go at this alone. We'd like to thank the following partners in fun:

Haydee Aldrete/Concepts Event Design for the furniture and linens
Courtney Scowby/Brightly Designed for the paper elements
Patricia Laurice/Chez Laurice for the vintage elements
Jeni Maus/Found Vintage Rentals for the picture frames
Julie Frans and Devin Woodall/Dining Details for the lemon poppy seed cake
David Wasserman/Joes On The Nose for the hot chocolate drinks and whipped cream
Kristen Peelle/Kristen Peelle Photography

Sharon's bright idea (paying tribute to bright ideas...)

Homage to my years of staying on my toes...

Love notes and quotes.

Our three couples: Romeo and Juliet; Darcy and Elizabeth; Edward and Bella.
