Kristin & Phil, Part III

As we wrap up the mountain chic wedding of Kristin and Phil we saved the best for last... the party! Kristin and Phil know how to have a good time, enjoying the most of every day and all the beauty of life. And, they know how to throw a great party!

With a fabulous band a "must" the couple hired Colorado superstars Funkiphino from Boulder, CO. Jessica and Chris have hand selected it's members from an elite group of talent drawing fans from all over. The week before Kristin and Phil's soiree they played in a music festival in Colorado where Michael Jackson's guitar player (from all of his world tours) rocked out with them! Pretty cool huh!

In keeping with Kristin's fresh, summery color palette the Grand Hall at Copper Mountain was transformed- the picturesque Rocky Mountains looked down as guests dined and danced was the perfect ending to the picture-perfect day!

Another round of applause to James Christianson for the fabulous photography! Thanks Kristin and Phil for letting us share in your lives and in all the fun!

Erin Swift & Taryn Bickley

Artistry is expressed across all creative platforms including event design. Through fabulous retail displays and media I am constantly inspired by the “styling” of an event.

Styling (or staging) is a perfect blend of textures, colors, patterns and “things” that work together to enhance a particular setting or emotion through visual stimuli.

With the book on event planning and design ever evolving, as a designer I am constantly drawn to talents like like Erin Swift and Taryn Bickley (from Michigan) who have taken the art of styling to a new level.

Erin’s work has graced the cover of Gourmet and Elegant Bride. She’s a regular contributor for Oprah Winfrey's O at Home and has been dazzling us all with her creative arranging and staging techniques.

A twisted look at wedding gowns and femininity. Who wouldn’t want to embody such sophistication while layered in gorgeous fabrics?

Perfect inspiration piece for designers just starting in the industry- look at Erin’s perfectly placed textured pieces and her use (or lack of) color and lighting.

Two of my personal favorites from her portfolio. The quintessential haberdashery “look” that is revolutionizing design.

Taryn Bickley's style is completely swoonable! With launching Metro Detroit Bride in 2004 her fashion journalism career and talent speaks volumes by simply turning a page in one of the posh Detroit Magazines she styles.

HOUR Detroit Magazine, April 2008- fashion styling shoot in Detroit Metro Airport's McNamara Terminal.

Metro Detroit Bride Magazine, Summer/Fall 2008- whimsy with design elegance, cake never looked so stunning!

Chicago Home Magazine, May/June 2008- the perfect setting for a perfect afternoon party.

Metro Detroit Bride Magazine, Summer/Fall 2007- edible styling is a talent I covet of Taryn's. Food paired with chic settings and surrounding are a sure win for this feature.

When planning your next event or party think about ways to enhance your surroundings with subtle impact. Don't be afraid to mix browns and blacks, white and ivory. Thanks to Erin and Taryn for your fantastic design eye and contribution to creativity!
