I jumped for joy when superstar wedding designer Misty Damico with Luxe Event Productions approached me with a unique opportunity to collaborate. Misty wanted to challenge herself and her team and all of us who worked together to conceptualize, design, build, and document a series of tablescapes in rapid succession. The concept is similar to when a jazz musician improvises or a creative writer free writes.
The idea is to create without inhibition. Push yourself. Try something new. Try something different. Be bold. Take risks and see what happens. That is exactly what we did!
We setup 3 different work stations, intended to create a variety of different looks and feels, and Misty began to work her magic. Watching her work is like watching the excitement of a little kid in a toy store. What if we do this? Then add this? Let’s get candles over here and some bolder colors over there. One of our favorite florists Jordan with Blum Floral Design worked feverishly alongside Misty drumming up beautiful floral arrangements and accents to coincide with the design. Within minutes, Misty would declare, “Table number 1 is ready to be photographed!” and would immediately begin working on the next table. I would step in and begin documenting table number 1 and hear Misty say, “Table 2 is now ready!”
Misty’s collaboration was an absolute blast and certainly a creative challenge for all of us involved. It was an honor to gain some insights into her design process and creative thinking.
A special thanks to Lisa with Crave Design for sharing some of her wedding invitations, table markers, menus, and place cards for the project. Her creative vision and unique designs are highly sought after in the wedding industry so having her work on hand was especially rewarding. A special thanks also goes out to Barclay Event Rentals for allowing us an entire day of creative play with their extensive collection of rentals. The end result is a wonderful improvisational free write by a masterful wedding designer, an exceptional florist, an incredible invitation designer, and a very humble photographer.
We are extremely excited to announce that Junebug Weddings has featured a selection of 5 tablescapes on their blog from this creative endeavor. Make sure to check out the feature. We have posted some of those images along with a few others below.
