A Taste of Foxhall

Blue Eyed Yonder | A Taste of Foxhall | Photo by Buffy Dekmar

A little while back I had the great pleasure of teaming up with some of my favorite Atlanta vendors for a styled shoot and tasting celebration to debut Foxhall’s newest venue, Lakeside Terrace. Stylist, Ginny Branch, created a sea of neutrals using crisp green and natural elements such as oyster shells and wooden slabs. Erica Loesing of Yes Ma’am Paper + Goods handcrafted a stunning invitation suite including hand lettering and custom paper cuts. She also hand lettered tags for the food display and escort cards. The Savage Garden wowed everyone with a dramatic driftwood installation above the head table and created an unbelievable lakeside altarpiece. For the lounge area, Blue Eyed Yonder incorporated some of our favorite neutral upholstered pieces accented with natural wood tables and accessories.

The shoot and tasting could not have been more beautifully documented. Buffy Dekmar (Buffy Dekmar Photography) and husband, Chris Dekmar (Dekmar Films) were on hand to capture all these beautiful details. You couldn’t ask for a more down-to-earth, talented duo. They’re both so easy going and unbelievably talented.

From Buffy“This shoot, designed by Ginny Branch and executed by Sun in My Belly, features a light, natural palette. Lush greenery with succulents and green apples provides an unexpected crisp freshness to the florals (by Savage Garden). The venue is a peacful sporting resort just outside of Atlanta, and one of my favorite details was the ethereal “Kensington” bridal gown by Carol Hannah Whitfield (via The Sentimentalist)–so pretty and soft!”

Spirit of Oakland

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and we couldn’t be happier to be a sponsor of this year’s Capturing the Spirit of Oakland Halloween Tour. Come out this weekend to walk amongst some of Atlanta’s famous “eternal residents”, hear their stories and see a few special pieces from Blue Eyed Yonder’s collection. These tours are very special since it’s the only time the gates stay open after dark. The cemetery is so peaceful at night and holds so many wonderful stories and also a fantastic view of the city.

Happy weekend y’all!

A Lovely Workshop on Martha Stewart Weddings

I’m so thrilled to share more beautiful images from Elizabeth Messina’s A Lovely Workshop that was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings The Bride’s Guide.

I (along with some of Atlanta’s best wedding vendors) traveled to Sea Island to style and produce three different shoots for the workshop. Each day was different – new colors, new props, new dresses, new locations. These images were from Day 3 of the workshop – The Gilded Wedding. Ginny Branch did a phenomenal job of creating the most inspiring mood boards for each of the vendors to pull inspiration from. She orchestrated and styled each of the different shoots – it’s like pure magic watching her work. I’m so flattered to have been a part of this dream team.

On the final day of shooting, all of the workshop attendees were surprised to find out the 24-foot farm table spread was created especially for them – complete with red velvet cake and champagne for a Southern send-off!

Carol Hannah Trunk Show

Every girl dreams of her perfect dress – the one she slips on that makes her smile, makes her cry, makes her whole heart glow. I’m a believer that every bride deserves to indulge the boutique dress shop experience. It’s so much sweeter and intimate, a far cry from the loud hustle and bustle of a huge bridal shop.

If you’re a bride looking for that perfect gown or just really dig fashion – you should totally make time to swing by the Carol Hannah trunk show this Saturday at The Sentimentalist in Atlanta. Meet Project Runway’s very own Carol Hannah, try on beautiful gowns with Gabi and munch on homemade blueberry scones made by Gabi’s mom, Krista.

Hope to see you there!
