Kobber Besættelse

April 21, 2014

Since finding these cool tumblers in a vintage store a year or so ago, I’ve been interested in the tiny slice of time during the mod era that Danish modernists embraced the combination  of teak and copper.  I immediately thought of backing it with stark white to really let the beauty of these pieces shine.  Thus the title of this inspiration shoot, which translates to “Copper Obsession”.

We were so pleased to style and produce this editorial photo shoot for the 2014 Spring/Summer issue of the Brides of Oklahoma.  There were many moving pieces and I am continually floored by this team of vendors for “getting it” and bringing their best game to every situation.

I hope you love it as much as we loved putting it together!

p.s. brides – this would be awesomely fun to do for a REAL wedding!! Hint, hint, winky face.

Ana and Noah

February 21, 2014

 

Ana and Noah have the kindest and most charitable hearts you could imagine.  Together we planned a unique celebration of their union that perfectly reflected their love for each other and their families.  The reception was moved inside at the last minute due to mother nature sending a cold snap our way mid-April, but the ballroom looked so perfect it was if we’d planned it that way all along!  Eubanks-960 Eubanks-186 Eubanks-744 Eubanks-284 Eubanks-1072 Eubanks-1859 Eubanks-1157 Eubanks-343 Eubanks-867 Eubanks-927 Eubanks-911 Eubanks-906 Eubanks-901 Eubanks-1705

Lacy and Mark

February 17, 2014

UPDATE!  Lacy and Mark’s beautiful wedding was just featured on Grey Likes Weddings!

If you can find a couple more in love than these two, I’ll give you a hundred bucks. Never have I met a more laid back couple, willing to go with the flow.  Lacy really wanted a wedding like nothing she’d seen before, so we tracked down some unexpected spaces and got to work!  The result was undeniably magic.  Best. Day. Ever.

Reem and Patrick

February 8, 2014

 Reem came to us with an idea and a challenge.  A February wedding that incorporated her love of pink and red, an inspiration board heavy on ombre and request to keep the kitsch to a minimum.  The result was a special celebration of she and Patrick and a great party! A couple of notes.  1.  CHECK OUT HER AWESOME GOWN!!! We had to rent a limo at the last minute because she realized the week of the wedding that she couldn’t fit the dress into a classic car! 2.  Seriously. That dress.

Happy Valentine’s week!

I’m sorry, who did you say you were with?

September 11, 2013

In March of this year I received an email I had been dreaming about for a while.  Southern Living was contacting me about doing an editorial spread for their “Southern Table” feature.  Would I be interested in working on a piece for their September Issue?  Um, YES, yes I would.  Cue weird Elaine Benes style dance in my kitchen.

The editorial staff of Southern Living were awesome and it was completely fascinating to experience the editorial process for a national magazine.  I have a healthy respect for these people and the lengths to which they go to ensure the quality of their publication.

The scene is an early fall dinner party among friends.  One of the hallmarks of Southern Living is advocating the use of what you have, what you’ve inherited and what you can create. So we used my china, crystal and flatware, all inherited from a very dear friend of the family, whom I thought of (and miss) like a grandparent. I roped my sweet momma into custom stitching the napkins.  The florals, I’m sure you can guess if you have read any blog post EVER of mine, are from the incomparable Poppy Lane, who lived and breathed this shoot with me from start to finish.  Chirps and Cheers made the most adorable sign for our signature cocktail “Coffee White Russian” and custom letterpressed some bookplates for me that doubled as place cards.  Cafe Evoke went so far as to create a recipe for the drink, which I made up in my head.  I’m sure Jason will make one for you next time you stop by their shop.  Finally, on basically NO notice, Cheever’s (our fantastic neighbors!) gave us a WHOLE carrot cake for the shoot.  And you’d better believe it did not go to waste.  The proverbial icing on the cake was getting the green light to shoot the whole thing at Dutch, the NOW OPEN floral and home boutique on Uptown 23rd and the shiny new home of Gibson Events and Poppy Lane Design.

Below are some of the shots captured that day. A huge thank you to all the players who worked so hard to make it happen. It was pretty awesome.
