I draw inspiration from all kinds of sources when I’m working through a design plans for what the floral and decor elements of a wedding day will look like. The first and number one place I always look for inspiration is from the actual wedding venue itself. It’s the largest visual element of your wedding day, and often one that you often times can’t alter the basic look of, so it’s important to start from there when consider what your day will look like.
Kristin and Pavel has the gorgeous visual backdrop of The Newberry Library, so we had some good materials to work with. Heirloom teamed up with our friends over at Clover Events to make this wedding happen and Katherine and her team provided the planning and coordination end. When Katherine first introduced me to Kristin, she asked if there was a way that I could incorporate elements of one very famous fairytale into their design, in a subtle and beautiful way. Yum, heck ya! See if you can tell where we placed an ode’ to my favorite childhood movie!

One of my favorite favor elements! We had small glassware printed with Kristin and Pavel’s wedding logo and planted succulents for guests to take home and enjoy! A small flag that noted their table number, made these favors do double-work on wedding day!
