This weekend I was asked to design and style a video shoot for the Travel Channel that was taking place at the Inn and Spa at Loretto, a lovely destination wedding venue in Santa Fe. Thrilled with the opportunity, I had the chance to art direct the entire event, spotlighting the wedding resources that the venue offers. Here are just a few sneak peek phone pics from the day.
To mirror the elegant Southwest vibe the Loretto offers, I centered the design around a unique and beautiful color palette. I chose colors like coral and peach paired with gray/greens. I accented the tabletop with metallic coppers and golds. The flowers provided by Marisa Peluso popped beautifully off of the linens!
I even designed the look for the lovely couple's ensemble. I had a blast attending a fitting at the elegant bridal atelier, Laura Sheppherd. There we chose a dress to coordinate with our theme, as well as a beautiful veil and jewelry.
Part of the shoot centered on the wedding cocktail hour where we showcased delectable appetizers and a Prickly Pear martini with a gold leaf rim. Yum!
I was super stoked to take part in such a fun shoot. All of the folks were great to work with and I am excited to see the final product. It should be airing some time in June....I'll keep you posted!
