MELISSA PRASAD of PRETTY LITTLE DETAILS and I met months ago to brainstorm ideas for an upcoming styled shoot at the bar and restaurant, COTTONWOOD. We wanted to incorporate a color story of sweet pinks and pops of red. We immediately thought to have MARIA MAXIT of MAXIT FLOWER DESIGN on board to create the beautiful and artistic floral arrangements for the shoot. We also knew we wanted to have a talented hair and make-up artist to bring our classy and glam look to life. Of course, we trusted the ladies at PINK PALETTE ARTISTS to styling our model, CHRISTINA SUN, owner of the online boutique, SUNCHILD. CHRISTINA wore a blush glitter gown by BADGLEY MISCHKA, heels from IVANKA TRUMP, earrings by KENDRA SCOTT, and gold accessories from SUNCHILD. THE PERFECT TOUCH, DRESSFLOWERSCAKE, and SWIFT EVENTS shared their table settings and decor for the shoot. KORIE LYNN, the gifted calligraphist behind THE WEEKEND TYPE, hand-lettered each of the macarons and envelopes, including in her pieces such creative guest names too! The macarons were baked by THE REFINED BAKERY and the invitation suite was from MINTED. We also put together a sweet little box for the couple with goodies from BHLDN and PAPER SOURCE.

Although we picked a location that was industrial, MELISSA and I tied in softer elements with the pretty poppy red and pink florals, poetic pieces like the hand-lettered macarons, rosy pink book by Pablo Neruda, and subtle gold accented dining settings and accessories. We hope that this styled shoot would be an inspiration for couples looking to have a fun, glam, and classy soiree or wedding reception.
