I'm extremely excited to share these photos today because this is Laurel & Elm's first time on Style Me Pretty's main page! I'm lucky enough to have been featured twice on Style Me Pretty's Mid-Atlantic blog (check out Touch of Boho Jewel-Toned Wedding Inspiration & Beautiful Pennsylvania Wedding at Michener Art Museum while you're at it!) but this is my first time ever on their national blog!
Check out the Style Me Pretty feature HERE!
Designing something to be on the main page of Style Me Pretty was one of my business goals for 2016 so needless to say, I am over the moon to see it happen in just February! It's truly such an honor to have my dream career and hard work validated by such a huge publication and it never would have happened without all of the hard work of these lovely ladies!

The concept of this shoot started with Swoon Vintage Rental's gold upholstered chairs and I built from there!
I really wanted to end the taboo around mixing metals and show that it CAN be done - if it's done well - so I carefully chose a specific shade of silver (more of a metallic gun metal gray than a sterling silver). The yellow and brown details complimented the gold and the different shades of gray complimented the silver. Bringing out the different tones in both metallics in all of these little details helped to soften the contrast between the two. Of course, Anthropologie had the perfect flatware and glassware to feature my ideal color palette. What doesn't Anthropologie have?
The Pennsylvania Bakery 100% nailed my winter dessert vision. Toasted marshmallow cake, s'mores cookies and hot cider galore!
Next up are these luscious florals by Splints & Daisies, dress by Jillian Fellers, hair and makeup by The Bonafide Ginger and the rest of my favorite shots!
I hope you enjoyed these details as much as I did! It never hurts when you have a supermodel bride and groom either right?!
Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend!
