Comfy and Cozy at Bloom Lake Barn

Posted August 3rd, 2017 @ 11:08am by: Erin

From start to finish this bride was ready for her day, as most brides are. The rain tried to dampen the morning by making an appearance, but did not keep this bride from walking down the isle of her dreams. She made a quick change in ceremony sites, added some cafe lights and a chandelier, and had the most comfy, cozy ceremony, which was nothing short of greatness. With an umbrella in hand, and her dad at her side she was ready to walk through the curtains and down the isle to the man she would soon call her husband!

Classic & Contemporary Wedding At Aria

Posted July 19th, 2017 @ 08:07am by: Erin

It's no secret that I love my job. I could fumble around with the words to explain just what makes my work so rewarding, but why try words when a single photo can explain it all! The look on the Bride's face when she sees that her dream has become reality is everything to me. I was so lucky to work with Kristen on her wedding, and over joyed that her photographer captured the moment she walked into her reception and saw all her decor and design had come together just as she dreamed.

Ok, now sappy stuff aside let's dive into the epic details of this ridiculously beautiful wedding!

Want to make a statement? Try hanging SIX chandeliers over your head table, and voila, you have a head table set for royalty!

Chandeliers were just the beginning, Kristen carried her classic contemporary look throughout her reception. The tables were draped with black and white stripe runners and decked out with gorgeous white floral a top gold risers and surrounded by glistening gold mercury glass.

Kristen wanted to make a statement with her bar. We strung cafe lights 30ft down from the catwalks to create a backdrop for her bar.

Pearls were a part of Kristen's design as well, they were scattered throughout the reception. Strands of pearls were swaged across the bride and groom's chairs and could be found dripping from the canopy of greenery centerpiece on the head table.

This photo has nothing to do with decor, but it needed to be shared. Look at the love between Kristen and her wedding planner, Casey! Casey did an impeccable job pulling off Kristen's wedding.

15 Ways to Dress A Farm Table

Posted April 6th, 2017 @ 11:04am by: Erin

15 ways to dress a farm table to make it uniquely yours.

  1. A pop of color. Include a pop of color. The color could be subtle, or bold like this royal blue wedding. Use napkins or table runners to introduce the color, this way the farm table still shows off. Shown here is our royal blue taffeta sash and royal blue polyester dinner napkin.

2. Soft and Romantic. Use flowing fabric to soften the hard wood look of the table. Don't be afraid to go a little girly and use pink! Shown here is our ivory arbor draping, pink chiffon with ruffles chair covers, and chiffon table runner.

6. Lighting surrounding the table. While lighting on the table is important, lighting surrounding the table is key too. Use lighting on the wall, or ceiling around the farm table to make it the focal point of the room. Shown here are our ivory chiffon with ruffle chair covers and cafe lights.

12. Big floral. Use big floral pieces to accent your farm table. Height is great, especially in a venue with tall ceilings. Pro tip: be sure that tall centerpieces don't block your view when you are seated. Shown here are our eggplant chair sashes, and Aubrey lace table runner.

13. Backdrop. Use a fabric backdrop to highlight your table or to hide an unsightly wall. Shown here is our taupe fabric backdrop, mercury glass candlesticks, matte satin eggplant napkins, mercury glass floral pedestal, and blush mercury glass candlesticks.

14. Table placement. Don't be afraid to think outside the box (or room in this case) and place your table somewhere other than in the front of the room. Your farm table can sit in the middle of the room, which is called harvest style, this way guests can sit all around you. Move your table to a space with better lighting or even bring your dinner outside!

15. When in doubt, add a horse! I find that horses make everything better!! Oh, and a full moon doesn't hurt either.
