Love. It's the big idea.

Oh my. Was this fun. Utterly Enaged created a tablescape competition between wedding vendors in the SoCal area. I was on the (absolute best!) team which consisted of Sweet + Saucy, So Happi Together, and good ol' MaeMae Paperie. Nancy from So Happi created this genius theme and put it all together, I created all the designs, and Melody from S+S made all the delightful treats + sweets.

The requirements were to take our own twist on a modern tablescape. We created a "brand" for the wedding which was "Love. It's the big idea" and the logo was a light bulb with a heart inside. The couple was a pastry chef + an engineer, Polly + Edison. Mel crafted cookies and the decorations for the cake from my illustrations. You haven't lived until you eat something with your design on it.

My favorite element was all the paper we used in place of traditional elements. The table runner was paper and the place mats were also paper. The two place mats also acted as escort cards with the names on the top.

I have saved Mel's cookies for 3 months... they were even prettier (if possible) back in the day. I have been afraid I was going to have an ant problem in the studio, but I carefully preserved them for this photo shoot.

We didn't win the popular vote, but we were selected as an editor's pick in the latest online mag. Thanks, Lucia!

It looks amazing! I keep thinking about the movie IQ for some reason... but this is way better! Edison and the lightbulb! Your team seems to have hit the nail on the head and you're all right on time with the orange. It's a big color this spring. Congrats!
