Yet another time when I had absolutely nothing to do with an idea, but wow do I feel lucky to have been a part of it. This photo is currently my favorite combination of colors and inspired me to expand my collection of blue china which was almost non existent until Jen Rios contacted me about using plates for this shoot. If you've picked up a copy of My Wedding Magazine lately, you'll see this gorgeous photo featured on the back page.
This shoot features another pattern that went under appreciated by me for a long time. There's something about looking at a photograph of an object that allows you to appreciate all of those small details you never noticed before. I love the delicate edges of this plate, the touches of gold and the soft pinks. This shoot is simple, full of light, beauty and happiness and I can't get enough of it! View more photos, and the gorgeous couple, here on 7 Centerpieces.
I was a little hesitant to pair these patterns together, but I love the way everything turned out. The bold plate colors complement the other bold elements of this shoot. I love love love the bouquet and the succulents used on the table, especially since it can get a little hot in Texas. Check out the rest of this shoot on 7 Centerpieces.
I got a call in late summer of 2015 from KC at Cloud Creative Events, to do a full set-up for a wedding on a private property. The bride was living out of state and the entire wedding was planned in a very short amount of time. Fast forward to the wedding day... I had a 14 day old baby and was still recovering from a cesarean. I remember hobbling from table to table as I set out each piece, thinking about how I must have been insane. But then the set up was finished and I had a few minutes to look around and I just felt blessed... it was beautiful. The bride was beautiful, the scenery was breathtaking, the details were perfect and it was all planned in less than 90 days! Visit Alba Rose Photography's blog post to see more fabulous shots, then head over to 7 Centerpieces, where it was also featured.
Sometimes a styled shoot goes off without a hitch, and sometimes you find yourself being escorted off the premises and hiking through a field with a chair slung over your back. That was this shoot. It didn't go quite the way we expected, but we shared a lot of laughs and had a great time. It was all worth it for that gorgeous sunset...and the extra cupcakes that Jar Cakery brought along in case of emergency. I'm so happy Burnett's Boards chose to feature this shoot because we definitely put the muscle into it.
Last month PLP once again took part in The Big Fake Wedding. If you're never heard of it, it's basically a bridal show, done as an actual wedding. You play a guest, and witness an actual married couple renew their vows. Their attendants are their real friends and family, but everyone involved is a wedding vendor of some kind. It's super fun and personally, WAY more interesting than walking around the Will Rogers Exhibit Hall carrying a cheap reusable tote with your eyes glazed over. At The Big Fake Wedding the only reason your eyes should be glazed over is because you danced your pants off and had one too many glasses of champs.
This year's BFW was hosted by Marie Gabrielle, which is my absolute favorite hidden gem of Dallas. It's like a secret garden right in the middle of the city and it's amazing. The food was fabulous, the music was on point and we had a ton of fun. Today the event was featured on Ruffled, so be sure to head over and see the photos.
Oh look.. it's Mr. PLP and my BFB. I make Mr. PLP wear a bow tie to anything that could even remotely turn into a dance party. If I see him ride the pony or put a tie around his head one more time, so help me y'all. The bow tie is safer.
Can I tell you how much I love the Jar Cakery girls? I love them because they bring me treats, but I love them even more for asking me to be a part of this beyond fab shoot at The White Sparrow. You'll see images from this shoot all over my site because I'm just that obsessed with how it turned out. You must go to Inspired By This and see more. Like right now.
When Ashley and Evelyn, from Wildflower Weddings and Events, came to pick out plates for their shoot I was so happy when they chose a few patterns that don't often get showcased. They really took the time to search and it was fun to go through the stacks with them. I love the simplicity of this table setting for two, and those fab blue coupes... not mine! Those belonged to Evelyn's grandmother and I am oh so jealous of them. I love Smitten Magazine so seeing this shoot on their blog was a sweet surprise.
You know when you have absolutely nothing to do with an idea but it turns out beyond fabulous and you get to take some credit? Yeah, that's this shoot. Query Events contacted PLP about providing the plates for this Tuscan inspired setting and I was so excited when she chose our new pink plates. The color combinations are amazing and I cannot get over those florals. Check out Burnett's Boards for the full feature.
I don't get to see the final product on every wedding we do, so I'm always excited when a photographer or a planner does a blog post on it. I can thank Grit + Gold for this post on Taylor and Matt's wedding, and they can also be credited with the fabulous styling! I love Artspace 111 not only because my husband and I were married there, but because it's such a versatile space. I was SO excited to see the way our vintage plates were mixed with modern, colorful elements. It all blends perfectly and creates such a fun look. Love Taylor, love her fun style, really loved that her guests didn't eat all of the macarons and Payton from Grit + Gold packed up a box for me to take home and eat. #perk This wedding was also featured in Brides of North Texas, so you can check out even more photos here.
I love the rich colors from this styled shoot by Silver Lining Events. Pulling pieces for a specific color palette can be a challenge, but it's a challenge I love to take on. This shoot was fun because working with The Bevy girls is always a good time, and it didn't hurt that we enjoyed the blushing berry champagne drinks after all the hard work was done. Head over to Bridal Musing to see more of the rich marsala inspired shoot.
Let's take it way back to last Spring. I loved this shoot because firstly, someone brought doughnuts and I was pregnant, but secondly, because it was the first shoot that used some of my neutral plates. These plates had really gone under appreciated by me until this shoot, and now they are in my group of favorites. I love the simple beauty of the scalloped edges. This shoot was featured on Wedding Chicks, so go check out Courtnee Murphy's beautiful photographs and some of my favorite vendors.
We're starting a blog and we're talking about plates. Ok, not as much talking as looking. I'll be posting beautiful styled shoots and weddings featuring PLP rentals, bragging on fellow vendor talents, showing off pretty tablescapes, and occasionally getting a little technical and talking about place settings and table manners. The goal is to post once a week once I've finished adding our previously published work.
