Septima & Tremelle: Art Inspired Styled Shoot in Atlanta

I’ve been waiting an entire month to share these photos with you and now it’s time! I teamed up with some wonderful vendors and a lovely couple (who happen to be friends) to create this colorful styled shoot.

 

Naturally when choosing a theme for our shoot, I decided to go with something close to my heart. Art! Being able to have it in the Castleberry Hill historic arts district was an added benefit as it houses a number of art galleries within its century old buildings and we also had our own wedding in this area. Yay for memories! It’s not just the art inside the galleries that inspire me though. The streets of Castleberry Hill have lots of art of their own, including beautiful architecture, incredible murals and even some graffiti. I know some people may not think graffiti and city streets make for a beautiful wedding, but I can’t say I’m like most people. I love pairing nontraditional elements, including the way the harsh city streets pair with the delicate lace of a wedding gown. So, I whipped up this inspiration board, sent it to a few vendors and a few short weeks later, we were together making magic.

Design Trends: Quotes

I get a lot of my design inspiration from home goods. Maybe because I believe the majority of entertaining occurs in the home. Or maybe it’s because home is comfortable and it’s where we feel loved and safety. Who wouldn’t want to take that with them when they go out? Whatever the case may be, this picture came across my Pinterest feed a few days ago and I thought it was cute. I’ve always wanted a vanity, but that’s not what this post is about. The stand out piece in this image is the artwork.

The design is simple and would be an easy DIY. But it simply says, “I love you” repeatedly in a script just above a vanity. How beautiful is that? To remind yourself as you cover up with make up and style your hair that you love yourself before, during, and even after the process is done. I’m not sure if that was the intent when choosing what to add in this particular case, but that’s what it meant to me.

If we surrounded ourselves with positive words (and beautiful things), wouldn’t we feel encouraged, empowered, and loved? Well, incorporating words and quotes into your event is a big design trend right now, so someone must have agreed with me. You can find thoughtful, motivating, or humorous sayings on everything from dinnerware to lampshades and even aisle runners!

Who doesn’t know that they word CHEERS means there’s a celebration going on?

There’s something like being surrounded by the words, that helps move the spirit of the event. The great thing about it is, you can always pick the words and phrases that are important to you and it’s really easy to add this kind of personalized touch to a lot of items you feature at your event.

So what do you say? Would you do it?

Getting Started

-Arthur Ashe

 

I found this on Pinterest. There’s a wealth of information there. Except the name of the original artist. I thought I saw it mentioned somewhere, but not on the one I pinned. I did a quick search on etsy and there are few versions available for purchase. Either way, I find this to be a very inspirational message. And with that, I’m off to organize my sample linens and crafting supplies. A clean office makes for an inspiring place to work.
