MERLOT MUSINGS COLLABORATIVE | AS SEEN IN THE FALL ISSUE OF THE CELEBRATION SOCIETY

 

There was a lot of heart that went into this project - it started with a simple idea, a few emails back and forth, and after discovering the stunning Hay House in Macon, GA, there was no doubt that it was the perfect space to allow our imaginations to run wild.  So, we did!

We have waited for months for our work to be debuted by the fabulous The Celebration Society publication and, there is no other publication that could have featured it more eloquently.  I am so grateful that our work was truly seen and interpreted in the way that we had intended.

Paying homage to the Pantone color of the year for 2015, the wash of Marsala hues were complemented by glints of gold within the table arrangements and existing decor within the venue, and the most stunning and romantic array of floral by the team at Amanda Jewel.  I'm still in awe of these floral pieces and the way they simply "threw" things together.  Everything they touch turns to gold!  The Modern Gent lent some extremely fine pieces of menswear, and Wedding Angels Bridal Boutique in Roswell provided us with the most perfect of wedding gowns to bring even more elegance to the space.  Bryn of Bryn Harrison Weddings & Events brought her creative energy to the table to coordinate all of the moving pieces, styling each of the components in the most natural and stunningly beautiful way.

Ashlee + Josiah were out of this world.  In the time leading up to their own wedding, they modeled for us and we could not have asked for a more perfect or genuinely in love pair to bring life to our ideas.  I am personally so, so incredibly grateful to them for sharing their time and bringing an authenticity to our collaborative.  I simply adore these two!!

Our piece was a hybrid one, intermixing film frames with digital.

What a privilege to work alongside some of the most talented wedding industry professionals in the business!  There is nothing better than having the honor to collaborate with like-minded creatives and to dream something from a few simple ideas.  It was a the most rewarding and fun project to collaborate on and to be able to bring our own passion for what we do to the table to create something relevant and beautiful!  I am so thankful for the time and creativity given by the individuals behind each of our amazing professionals!:
