Delphine featured in Romantic Homes June 2013

Delphine in the press Romantic Homes June 2013A while back I teamed up with some super talented San Diego friends to produce a lovely inspiration shoot. Styled by Adrianne Smith and yours truly, photographed by Jennifer Dery, and first published on Cyd’s blog, The Sweetest Occasion, it was picked up again by Romantic Homes and appeared in their pages earlier this summer.

in the press: bridal insider

The Royal Wedding approaches! I hadn’t thought much about it until Eventity asked me to participate in an inspiration shoot with A Royal Wedding theme in San Diego. I whipped up some pretty menus using our Wonderland motif. Now I’m super curious to see what the paper goods at the “real” royal wedding look like. My gut tells me that Kate is going to look stunning, but the paper goods are going to be a bit stale and crazy traditional, if it’s anything like their uninspired wedding invitation. Where’s the drama??

Anyhoo, I’m officially on board for watching the Royal Wedding. Anyone planning a viewing party? Believe it or not, we don’t have a decent television in our house! 

Many thanks to Eventity for including us in this inspiration shoot, and to Kristina Chartier Photography for shooting such lovely photos. Hop on over to Bridal Insider to see the lovely champagne, ivory and gold tablescape in all its glory.

in the press: ceremony magazine

Ahem … not to brag or anything, but we were featured FOUR TIMES in the 2011 issue of Ceremony magazine. Woot. Many thanks to Adrianne Smith, fleuriste extraordinaire, who included our invitations in two of her tabletop shoots, including the pretty robin’s egg turquoise and purple cover shoot!

in the press: a fun vintage tailgate reception

Many thanks to Abby and the Style Me Pretty team for posting our vintage tailgate reception inspiration shoot today. Seeing the photos brought back a ton of fun memories. To see more photos and read all about the inspiration behind the photos, please visit Style Me Pretty.

I had a blast working with Adrianne and Jen on this. Special props to darling Julie, who was extraordinarily patient and kind while we dressed her up and had her running all over the yard in a pink crinoline and heels! The super fun vintage lawn games and most of the “furniture” is courtesy of Jennifer at SoLo. The very best part of this shoot: sipping the champagne and devouring delicous Cupcake Love “props” with the team after the wrap!

sneak peek: formaggio & dolce wedding

Here’s the final of the three inspiration shoots I did with Adrianne Smith and Jennifer Dery last week. While the sweet pink garden tea party is, well, sweet, and the retro rockabilly tailgate party was super fun (champagne in a can! what can be better?) this Italian-inspired “Formaggio & Dolce” (cheese and sweets) shoot was hands down my favorite. From the chic, muted, tone on tone color palette to the vintage found objects to the stunning (STUNNING) cafe au lait dahlias and arrangements, to the impossibly delicious cheeses from Dolce, this “faux” party turned into a real party as soon as the sun went down. I’m so excited to share the photos, but you’ll have to be patient while we wait for publication elsewhere (details to be announced on publication of all three shoots).
