STYLE ME PRETTY | LUSH AUTUMN FEAST

When it comes to the colors of autumn I’m a smitten kitten , and this next inspo from Megan Robinson is like a handwritten love note to the season. With details like a lush layering of editorial bits paired with one wildly elegant Claire La Faye gown, every detail is the type of pretty that’ll have you celebrating the cooler climate in THE VAULT!

From Megan RobinsonInspired by the colorful Arizona landscape, this editorial was a three part, month long project with Sage & Stem and Posies Floral. We wanted each session to be able to stand on it’s own while also working together.

Part One was our Food Editorial. Overall, the goal with this project was to take inspiration from the season and with Part One, we kept it reminiscent of the cozy gatherings, festivities and holidays that come with the changing season. By incorporating artisan breads and cheeses, locally made honeycomb and foraged figs, our set up came to life and shows that you don’t need much to make a statement with your food display. We also felt that a rustic, savory food display was more of the esthetic we wanted to create for the season over a “sweets” table.

Part Two was with our stunning model, Mia, and custom black gown by Claire La Faye. The textured blend of honey colored roses, fading greenery and pops of blush and mauve by Posies Floral complimented the bold gown perfectly! We wanted to show the outcome of choosing one bold and one subtle piece and being able to blend them together. And those custom made earrings by Borcik! 

Part Three was our tablescape inspiration for that Fall get-together or intimate wedding. We used the same backdrop and cloth as Part One and kept our metals and greenery in tune from both Part One and Part Two. Sage & Stem added tall black candlesticks to our table setting with a clean, simple marble place setting and overflowing blooms.

MAGNOLIA ROUGE | MODERN TUSCAN VILLA by Katie Gonzales

Inspired by the beautiful ROYAL PALMS HOTEL in Arizona, SAGE + STEM capitalized on its rich history and charm and styled a shoot that enhanced its natural beauty. With original courtyards dating back to 1929, cobblestone paths and citrus orchards it lent itself perfectly to the modern Tuscan vibe the team were aiming for as you can see in these gorgeous images by MARY CLAIRE PHOTOGRAPHY.

Katie from SAGE + STEM Event Design tells us, “We started with a natural wood table, surrounded the base with hurricane vases and warm candlelight, then graced it with a flowing creamy linen. We added simple mid-century modern brass candlesticks and ivory tapers. Jami from Posies Floral foraged the grounds for delicate vines and we finished the table off with vintage brass chargers, minimalistic china and flatware and custom paper goods by Foil & Ink. From the rosemary infused olive oil to the ethereal flowing Grecian dress, we strived to keep the estates Tuscan feel a constant through all the details of this bridal inspiration.”
