A few months back, I was delighted to be contacted by Vesna Vasilevski editor of My Little Jedi Magazine. She asked to be a contributor of My Little Jedi Magazine Winter Issue! Vesna is probably one of the sweetest women I have worked with. She was fabulous to collaborate with. You can view all the lovliness of the new issue of My Little Jedi Online Magazine here.
Around this time, I was also asked to style a wedding shower for not one bride, but two! Sisters, Camille and Madeline, were getting married mere days apart. The brides thought a double shower would be brilliant. I had my reservations.
Working with brides on a regular basis, I know brides. I was a bride. Brides revel in any (and all) of their pre-wedding limelight. It’s the one day in woman’s life when it’s truly “her day.” The whole idea of a double bridal shower bewildered and intrigued me. The challenge would be to create an event where both brides shined individually and each couple was celebrated independently. I would need to hire more staff.
We got off to a bumpy start. My original theme choice of Bride Wars was unfortunately not embraced by the client. That being said, my second choice, Two in Love, a vintage bicycle-built-for-two inspired theme was. Hooray! I wanted the event to take place in The Netherlands, the bicycle capitol of the world. The client wanted her guests to be able to attend without the purchase of a plane ticket. Needless to say, the event took place in her home.The rest of the shower came together without a hitch. Below is the event I created for Camille and Madeline that was featured in My Little Jedi.
