Some of you may remember an “Eclectic Chic” inspiration board that I did over the summer that was inspired by my local Kate Spade store….

Well, this my friends, is the inspiration board brought to life! I LOVE doing photo shoots, and even more I love seeing the inspiration board and everything pulled together! With flowers and decor from MMD Events, Tina Bass Photography, and shooting at the amazing Postcard Inn in St. Petersburg, everything came together gorgeously. This inspiration shoot was actually featured on Wedding Chicks yesterday, which means I’ve had to hold back from posting it- but not anymore, it’s all for you to see!

Now for a little bit from MMD Events (aka me): Our goal with this shoot was to show brides that they can use bright colors and bold patterns and still be chic and modern. Placed with unique plates, the simple, chic menus created by Emily Ley Paper were the starting element. A simplistic colored border and matching font coordinated with the color of the napkins and the “place books”. Place cards created by Emily were made to look like “titles” for miniature books, doubling as favors at each place setting. Various found objects and a unique table number created by Every Last Detail added to the eclectic feel for the table.


A gorgeous centerpiece in shades of pink garden roses was placed on top of fashion magazines, standing out against the backdrop of a chic black lamp. A champagne and gold overlay was draped over a kelly green satin linen, all provided by Connie Duglin Linen. Gold chivari chairs from Signature Event Rentals were adorned by custom chivari chair toppers created by Simply & Forever Boutique, adding the perfect amount of style and sophistication. Combined with a custom bench cover made of a black and white floral print, the black and white seating completed the whole table.


Our stunning model wore a gorgeous gown provided by White Closet Co. and was all dolled up by Hope Henderson Artistry and Hair By Monique. She was accessorized with Stella & Dot jewelry, Bethany Lorelle hairpieces, and an adorably chic clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. These bright colors and bold patterns are perfect for a stylish bride wanting a wedding that is a little different, yet still incredibly chic. And of course the details are what complete this whole eclectic chic look!


You don’t see bold colors and design like this too often going around the blogosphere and I find myself wondering why. I think sometimes bold colors are done a little tacky, but the key to keeping it chic and modern is all in the details! I KNOW there has to be a handful of brides out there who have a style just like this in their everyday lives! So, what do you all think? Anyone planning on going bold, eclectic, and chic for their wedding?
