Oh my goodness, y’all. Today we’re sharing a few of our favorites from our Mid-Century Modern shoot currently featured on 100 Layer Cake! Glitz and glam is where it’s at today with hints of gold sprinkled all over and some gorgeous jewel tones to boot. Where old Hollywood style meets classic retro color, take a look back into the cool weddings of the midcentury beauties. Photographer Michelle Landreau used her incredible talents to come up with some stunning compositions, and this invitation suite by Crafty Pie Press… talk about fabulous!
We’re loving all these retro hues! And they sure do look nice against such crisp white walls, yeah? There’s something about the simple colors that bring out the happy in us all, and we’re definitely feelin’ it with this shoot.
Speaking of simple, happy colors, let’s talk about these striking arrangements from Flowers by Yona. A testament to how less is definitely more.
Thanks for letting us share some of our favorite moments from this swanky shoot. Check out 100 Layer Cake to see more. And stay tuned next week for a special treat you won’t want to miss!

A few weeks ago we kicked off Spring with a big ol’ party at the CAMP Spring Supper, and boy did we have ourselves a good time! CAMP, for those of you that may not know, is a collective of artists, designers, makers and the like who collaborate to teach and inspire other creatives here in the Atlanta area. Every so often we host a dinner to celebrate successes and gather all our friends, colleagues, and anyone else who wants to join in on the fun. There’s one a couple times a year, so come and be a part of the magic!
Sun In My Belly catered this party to our hearts’ content and, let me tell ya, the food was good! With bites of perfectly cooked veggies and pastas and raspberries (oh, the raspberries!), you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who didn’t go home with a full belly and a happy heart. And did you catch a glimpse at that menu? Yes Ma’am Paper + Goods did a beautiful job with the lettering if I do say so myself. Florals by Martha McIntosh were just lovely. Everybody brought their A game to make this season’s supper one for the books!
And let us not forget the tasty treats shared by XK Macarons! Everyone walked out happy with some sweet little midnight snacks… or should I say drive home snacks because, let’s be real, who can resist the call of the macaron? The epitome of beautifully crafted goodies, the swag bags from Minted were chock full of takeaways anyone would give their right brain to have. What a sweet way to say goodnight!
A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this season’s blowout! We at Blue Eyed Yonder can’t wait to see y’all in the fall for another CAMP Supper extravaganza!

So excited to share some drool-worthing images from our Gilded Winter Romance shoot featured on Ruffled. Using “texture” as inspiration for the shoot, Juli Vaughn created a dazzling display using a mixture of metal, tile, patterns, beading, and more. Our darling Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love was on hand to capture every last glitzy detail. It’s always a pleasure working with these talented ladies.
From the event designer and stylist, Juli Vaughn: In the last shoot, the image we selected inspired buzz words like idyllic, soft, fluffy, ethereal, and floral. Buzz words are a great way to figure out your style parameters. One of the words I hear in the wedding and design world quite a bit is “texture.” Texture is one of my favorite things to play with. Incorporating texture can take a simple color scheme from a snooze-fest to something really thought provoking. Our inspiration image for this shoot has a ton of texture – tile, fur, mixed patterns, metals, marble, and wood – but the neutral tones create a base.
When combining textures, make sure that the colors complement each other or are neutral enough that they don’t take on an “everything but the kitchen sink” appearance. It’s similar to the way a designer uses multiple patterns in a well decorated room. As long as the color scheme is adhered to – you can toss in pattern to your heart’s content and it all goes together.
A money-saving side note to incorporate texture: One unusual and cost effective thing we did was to take one of the gorgeous linens from Party Tables and create a wallpaper effect with it. This can be a way to introduce pattern into a space for the less “crafty” brides out there. Order a large tablecloth (or multiple ones) and simply hang them as backdrops. You won’t have to purchase a bunch of material that you’ll never use again!

In an industry flooded with a constant stream of beautiful imagery and inspiration, it’s not often that you get to be a part of a shoot that really stands out from the crowd. When Lindsay Coletta approached me with the idea of a Gypset-bohemian inspired shoot I was totally on board! From wildly romantic florals to teepees and even real life llamas – she nailed every detail about this shoot.
Heidi Geldhauser of Our Labor of Love did a phenomenal job capturing the gorgeous colors and light. I seriously can’t decide on a favorite detail from this magical shoot. Can you?
