I remember when Elizabeth Anne Designs and The Sweetest Occasion teamed up to announce last years Inspired Creations contest… a contest where teams of wedding professionals would create concepts for a fab DIY aspect of a wedding, execute this concept and of course show it off to inspire brides. The ideas last year were so creative and I wanted so badly to have the courage to ask someone to collaborate me… but I was shy and scared.
SOOOOO very much has changed for me since that time last year. I’ve come out of shy shell and really developed so many friendships in this industry. I have worked on many wonderful inspiration shoots and have developed good relationships with many of the industry’s talented and uber creative wedding professionals. To me these florists, coordinators, stylists, stationers, bakers, and beauty stylists aren’t wedding vendors… they are WEDDING ARTISTES. And I feel so super blessed each time I get to collaborate with them!
I was so thrilled when event designer Tami of Fabulously Wed asked me to photograph her concept for this year’s Inspired Creations contest. Tami had an idea for a Japan-inspired wedding and wanted to create the perfect sweets table for it. She used an unexpected color palette of pink, purple and gold. My favorite detail though was the hanging gold paper cranes as a backdrop! This small sweets table was very budget friendly but uber cute and I’m glad I got to photograph it’s loveliness!
And here are a few of my fave details…. The paper cranes and the beautiful fabric Tami found to cover the table with.
Beautiful purple Iris and sweet take out containers to pack your treats in!
And an overall shot of how it came together….
