2010 Creative Designs & Events Recap
2010 was a great year for Creative Designs & Events, lots of fabulous weddings and brides. The year started off when I attended Making Things Happen with Lara Casey. At the intensive I had the privilege to meet and talk with Lara Casey and Jeff Holt. They both were filled with lots of knowledge and it was nice to hear their life stories. One thing that was really great about MTH2010 was meeting all the vendors that were there, sharing their stories as well. I have truly developed some great friendships from MTH2010.
Before MTH2010 I was stuck in my own little world of planning my weddings and I really didn’t get involved with the whole wedding industry. It kind of opened my eyes to the different facet of wedding blogs, wedding submissions, and social media.
After MTH2010, I wanted to make a lot of changes to Creative Designs & Events and try a few new things. I noticed that more and more brides were using the same color palettes for their wedding décor and I think it was because they didn’t have any inspiration of any other colors. So I created a photo shoots with the help of photographer Kristen Steele, to help brides see the inspiration of different colors you could pair together for their wedding table scape. I created these three looks for that shoot:
This inspiration used Black, White, and Kelly Green. I am in love with damask, so this linen is perfect for this table scape. I like the look of all white flowers, with such a bold linen.
And the final shoot was centered around fall with a small wine theme. I used Caramel, Chocolate Brown, and Coral. I used the coral as a pop of color against the Chocolate Brown.
After I created these shots, I realized that I love creating table scapes and design décor for events. I then added Event Design Décor to my services. I wanted to offer brides the help of creating a creative and colorful décor to their wedding.
In May Lara Casey asking who would like to shoot the cover of V3. I immediately called Kristen and said, “let’s do this”. So we got together and created a southern shoot at Carnton Plantation and Downtown Franklin.
The shoot wasn’t chosen for the cover, but after lots of waiting we found out two of our images would be published in V3. I was excited for at least having two images in V3! Kristen really did a fabulous job capturing the images I was going for.
With the fall wedding season approaching, I hired a new assistant. Katlyne loves weddings and has been a great asset to Creative Designs & Events.
My favorite wedding of 2010 was my sister’s in October. The wedding turned out beautiful and exactly what my sister, Bethany and Stephen wanted.
2010 was a great year for Creative Designs & Events. I planned and created some really great weddings for my brides. Thankfully they all ran smoothly and to all of the brides liking. In 2010 I completely stepped out of my box and felt the fear and did it anyway. I knew that no matter what I did, I could only hear no, but even then I would still try. I really pushed myself in 2010 and plan on pushing Creative Designs & Events into some really greats opportunities in 2011.
