colorful, modern wedding

We had so much fun working on Katie and Max’s wedding, and we’re just loving seeing it in print in Southern Weddings. We’ll save the details behind this backyard affair until later in the year when we do a full post with some of our favorite images captured by Jodi Miller Photography. In the meantime, see more over here in their gallery. colorful, modern weddingPhotography by Jodi Miller Photography; Planning & Floral Design by Merriment; Wedding Design a collaboration between Merriment and the Bride & Groom!

richmond wedding wednesdays: amuse restaurant at vmfa

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

There are so many ways you could design a really beautiful, modern reception at Amuse Restaurant at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. This week, though, it’s all about fun. A short modern dress. Maybe a smile booth? Jonathan Adler salt and pepper shakers as cake toppers. Bright yellow pomanders. And a sleek cocktail party for, oh, about 150.*

Ruby Press Bridal Soiree

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

I came across these images last night while organizing my inspiration files and fell in love with them all over again. They’re from the Ruby Press Bridal Soiree held last May. The color palette is so striking. Since I have Halloween on my mind right now – I’m working on a charity Halloween event – I automatically thought that this palette would be really lovely for a modern Halloween party. But it lends itself to so many events. Wouldn’t it be a beautiful palette for a bridal shower or even a baby shower too?
