I have a special place in my heart for gorgeous loft industrial weddings.  There is just something about the cavernous yet wondrously airy blank slates that they offer.  When coupled with just the right touch of imagination, these hidden locales can truly sing.  Hoping to inject the same sense of industrial wedding wonder, a team of Ohio wedding pros headed to the event space at Rustbelt Coffee with the goal of transforming the event space into one of elegant design.  Details like sleek black ghost chairs, custom-made marble calligraphy place cards, & wispy branch centerpieces standing tall against old school loft windows are just a few touches that dial up the elegance.

"When the bride's a wedding planner, you know she won't skimp out on any of the details. Cassandra and Ryan celebrated their big day on the Fourth of July at the Large Theatre in Ohio's historic Columbus Athenaueum. Even though the two tied the knot on Independence Day, the holiday theme didn't overwhelm their wedding. Aside from American flag socks for the groomsmen and a giant flag photo backdrop, the reception featured pink flamingos and other colorful elements. The bride and groom even got their own wedding cakes to reflect their styles." Nicole Yi

A Kentucky Derby Celebration!

A Kentucky Derby Celebration!

Every year I look forward to the Kentucky Derby and all of the amazing hospitality and fashion that comes along with it. While I wish I was able to bedazzle a fancy hat and hit the stands in person, a dinner party at home was the next best thing. If traveling to the derby in person wasn't in your plans either, I hope you'll enjoy some of the ideas I incorporated into our fete and can even keep them in mind for next year!
