Thank you SO much to Charlotte Wedding Magazine for asking me to plan+design their latest issue’s inspiration shoot-what an honor! At our first sit down meeting, the team told me they wanted gold with hints of emerald green. I found THIS paper at Paper Source and based the entire shoot off of it–I do that often, base an entire design off one piece of ‘something’ I find (paper, linens etc.). Above is the design board I created and worked from. Below is the spread! Thanks to the fabulous vendors that we collaborated with on this shoot! For more on this spread, go pick up your copy today :).
