Dinner Parties are the new black.

Every wedding season is not the same.  This year, my March was busy but I had a slow April.  Instead of taking the down time, I decided to do a photoshoot at Calihan Catering.  I worked with Beth from Larkspur on the design as well as Delma from Private Label Linens.

My inspiration was to do a design that could look fabulous at a wedding but did not look like a wedding.  I imagined hosting a chic dinner party using lots of color with touches of gold.  I wanted the feel of the event to be simultaneously fun and elegant.  Too often, I feel that clients want one end of the spectrum.  I could see myself as a guest at this event, wearing a long maxi-dress with loads of bracelets and a casual flat sandal (gold, of course). Can you?
