One of my favorite blogs just got a makeover! Event stylists Sofia and André of Brancoprata (check out their fab guest post here) just relaunched their site and it’s SO pretty. Here’s a few images from a recent party they styled – just a glimpse of their creative genius…
but a visit to their blog is an absolute must for a peek at all of their wonderful work!
Let’s start the new year off with a free wedding shall we? Yep, I said free. Mallory + Eric were the winners of this fabulous wedding put together by Proper Measures, a husband and wife design team that’s taking the industry by storm. Each vendor donated his/her services, resulting in a beautiful and intimate affair filled with sweet creative touches and close family and friends.
From Stephanie of Proper Measures:
“The contest was an idea I had with my friend Amelia of Paperdoll Photography (who took all of the gorgeous wedding photos). We were having lunch & discussing possibilities for a wedding themed shoot. After some serious brainstorming, we realized that if we were going to put so much effort & detail into a shoot, we should just let someone get married!! The couple would get an entire wedding for absolutely free, but the catch would be that they had to give us complete control over all of the decisions for the big day. The winning couple, Mallory + Eric, created this amazing stop motion entry video:
Together with the other vendors we decided they were so deserving + totally perfect for this wedding we were cooking up. So at an intimate ceremony at Parkside Cafe in Birmingham, AL on September 25, 2010 Mallory + Eric were married… for FREE!!”
Here’s a closer peek into their special day:
Um, yum! All of these sweet treats were prepared by Stephanie and Wil who also created the adorable vintage styled dessert tables.
Paper lanterns, freshly picked flowers, bell jars… don’t you just love this wedding’s vintage vibe?
And what wedding is complete without a proper send-off of paper airplanes and colorful confetti? I love it! Congrats Mallory + Eric! I can’t think of a more deserving couple to have won this fabulous prize than the two of you.
And a special thanks to Proper Measures for sharing this beautifully styled and super unique wedding with us today. Make sure to check out Stephanie + Wil’s blog to view all of their most recently styled weddings and events.
