I am extremely lucky to have so many amazingly talented friends in my life. I mean, really, really lucky! Many of these people are bloggers just like me who I’ve become friends with through sharing, learning, and growing in an industry that’s just coming into it’s own. Today’s inspiration shoot was in part created by just such a friend and fellow blogger, Krisstin Thorburn from On The Go Bride. And I couldn’t be more excited to share her work and that of the incredible vendors she organized!
With a Great Gatsby feel, Krisstin rallied the creative team she put together to basically let their imaginations run. And that they did! But the entire inspiration and design was really the brain child of Donna Putnam from Forget Me Knot Events. And there are so many fabulous details you’re just going to love. My personal favorite, the upside down yellow tulip centerpiece. Wow-wee, what a striking scene against the bright blue sky, don’t you think?
Photographed by Christie Mumm of JLM Creative Photography who did an amazing job in the mid-day sun. The flower piece is actually designed to represent how Gatsby “showered” Daisy with an abundance of flowers. The flowers were upside down to replicate them falling from the heavens into the “pool” that is located underneath it, (ala Gatsby’s lavish pool/house parties). And the spiral seating was also a nod to the madness Gatsby encounters in his love for Daisy, but meant to be a meandering garden path as well. Let’s have a look…
