a love affair the workshop 2014 // styled shoot with lauren fair photography

A bohemian farm-to-table styled shoot full of gorgeous florals, a delicate BHLDN dress and a stunning couple - what more could you want? We adored partnering with Oleander Florals & Events for Lauren Fair Photography's 2014 "A Love Affair the Workshop" styled shoot, as seen on Green Wedding Shoes

We hand painted / calligraphed all of the paper goods to keep with the handmade, farm-to-table theme. 

The table was adorned with fresh farm eggs, cheeses, Moscow Mules, draping vines and some simple Sandpiper & Co calligraphy vases wrapped in linen napkins and tied up with a feather.

#FEEDsupper styled dinner party // NYC

Last summer, we were chosen by FEED to be one of their featured fall FEED Suppers. The idea is that each guest makes a donation to FEED to provide meals to people in need. Learn more about FEED's mission and FEED Suppers here! Our dinner party was a family affair - Stephanie and I styled and planned everything, I did the calligraphy and our husbands were our master chefs for the evening. Thanks to the fabulous Autumn Kern, of We Are The Kerns, for making the trip out to NYC for our supper party!

We had a lavender theme, which was incorporated into the color of our place cards, lavender cocktails, and a grilled pound cake dessert with vanilla ice cream and lavender simple syrup. (For the syrup boil 1 parts sugar to 1 parts water, steep lavender, strain and then add lemon juice.) 

We had a computer set up as a “giving station” - people came asking about the cause and we had the opportunity to talk about it while they were making their donations. This made giving feel natural and more integrated into the supper.

Thanks again to We Are The Kerns for documenting our FEED Supper!
