Blush Orchard Wedding Inspiration Shoot

We're thrilled to finally share our styled shoot from our May Bloom Workshop, as it is featured over on Inspired By This today! 

Photography: Ashley Slater Photography / Design & Styling: Michaela Noelle Designs / Venue: Bieker Farms / Florals: The Days Design / Calligraphy: Estudio Rojo / Dress: Spring Sweet / Cake & Cake Design: Sweet Heather Anne Runner & Ribbon: Adorn Company / Table & Furniture Rentals: Events by I.Candy / Makeup and Hair: Sarah and Jamie of Urban Modern Salon / Wood Signs: Lumber Tacks / Model: Rhiannon, Hey Gorgeous Events

Soft details, lots of textured greenery, a flowing, two-piece gown, and a cake with gold foil flowers. These were all the elements we knew we wanted to include in our romantic styled inspiration shoot. With a setting as lovely and lush with green trees and grass as Bieker Farms, we knew our design could make a statement with simple, yet sophisticated details. 

The bride is dressed in a traditional silhouette with a playful and modern twist. This gorgeous, two-piece gown from Spring Sweet is for the fun and romantic bride. Our tablescape consists of a rustic table and chairs, whimsical soft pink runner from Adorn Company, and comes to life with our greenery table runner, accented by brass candlesticks. Feminine place setting details, like our sweetly shaped chargers, gold wine glasses, pink champagne glasses, calligraphed menu and place cards, sweet mini cakes, and gold flatware, pull the look together. We wanted to create a cake table that was a show stopper, so Sweet Heather Anne designed a tall, romantic and sophisticated cake, with the loveliest gold foil flower detail. Although separate from the tablescape, the style fits right in as we tied in our gold elements in both vignettes. A tray of specialty cocktails on our cake table was the perfect finishing touch.

Hope you love the designs as much as we do!

Happy Thursday!

Life Lately

Hi there! Long time no talk...on my end at least ;) I'm finally back to blogging after taking a week off for vacation. Although I love my little blog so much, it's really nice to take time away and focus on what matters most: family, friends, beautiful creation, good food, and building relationships. 

Last week my boyfriend and I flew to California to visit my family. I'm still here for another week or so, but he sadly had to fly back to MI for work. While he was here, my mom and I took him to one of our favorite places in all the land; Carmel. I've written about it at least a dozen times here on my blog over the years. It's the quaintest little beach town, filled with adorable shops, art galleries, a gorgeous beach with white sand, lots of places to explore, and amazing restaurants. They also have the best farmers market on Thursdays! I wrote about it here

We went to point Lobos and explored the tide pools and cool rock formations. The beauty is unreal! I couldn't help but think how good God is for giving us scenes in nature like this. We had a great time!

We also relaxed by the ocean for a while. Glorious! I could live on the beach :) We even saw dolphins! Can you see them?!

Have you ever been to Carmel-by-the-Sea? Hope you've had a wonderful past week and weekend!

Client Project: Colorful Living Room Inspiration

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm sharing one of my latest client's designs. This client lives in Michigan, but we're designing their vacation home in Texas. She loves neutrals with pops of pastels, distressed furniture, coral and mint, and a touch of wood accents. After seeing the inspiration photos she had for the room, understanding her style and deciding on a layout for the room (above), I put together the design inspiration. We both love how it turned out! Can't wait to see the design executed in the space.

* If you're interested in my design services, I'd love to hear from you! From one-hour consultations, to virtual designs, inspiration boards, and full service design, we'd be honored to help you make your house feel like a home. Please email me at hello@michaelanoelledesigns(dot)com for pricing and packages.

Happy Tuesday! And thank you for bearing with me this week as I'm on vacation! I'll be back later this week :)
