I am over the moon! Sabrina and John’s spectacular wedding day is featured on 100 Layer Cake! This was one of my favorite weddings of 2012 and I’m so excited to finally share it with everyone. Working with Sabrina and John was a dream…we hit it off right from the start and our collaborations were fueled with some serious creativity!
Sabrina designed her invitation suite and the contemporary aesthetic and neon palette served as the inspiration for the rest of the wedding. The Center for Contemporary Arts, provided the most incredible raw, urban backdrop with it’s high ceilings and exposed brick walls. The fact that guests were able to mingle and dine within the actual art exhibit was so unique!
Sabrina and John got down with some buttons! Instead of traditional escort cards, the created a pin for each of their guests with a fun fact. They were great conversation starters and provided such a unique and personal touch from the bride and groom.
Since the meal was being served family style, we didn’t want too much on the table. I made cement-looking vessels out of hypertufa and planted them with succulents (if you missed the tutorial, it’s here). Accented with a script table number, the settings were simple, urban and threw a nice little wink to the Santa Fe landscape.
To soften things up and to bring the ultimate marriage of modern and organic was the living wall that I built for Sabrina and John’s ceremony backdrop. Combining elements of rusted re-mesh grids, wire, moss and muslin, we gave a nod to the Southwest with Choya cactus, air plants and succulents. This was by far my most favorite project of the season. Here’s a fun lil’ behind the scenes video for you!
