“OH deer” ~ A Christmas styled shoot

This is the first shoot in our new design studio with our Grit + Gold team. Inspired for Christmas, our shoot’s setting and feel was winter woodsy. Touches of antlers can be found throughout from stationery and centerpieces, to the unbelievably beautiful antler and floral head piece. We had fun designing the setups which included a cocoa display and champagne bar. The sweet treats were the perfect feel of handmade goodness that evokes the feeling of “home”.

Lucky in Love Shoot

We wanted to do a very authentic approach to the tradition of Saint Patrick. With a lush Irish influenced tablescape, the focus was to sophisticate this celebration without the typical overload of shamrocks. We went with a color palette in emerald, gold, and turquoise. Subtle touches of Irish here and there are found throughout from the woodland creatures found in bell jars, homemade Bailey’s Irish Cream and Guinness station, gold painted beer steins, and lucky horseshoes.
