I remember Noor from the Fall 2010 Kismet show, she was inquisitive and utterly gorgeous (also the founder and head make up artist at Noor Artistry)…. and not to mention the only one at the show that immediately picked up on my design training from Preston Bailey.
A couple months after the show, Noor reached out to me for a design consult.
Of course this fashionista was getting married at the ultra unique event space – The Vue that had recently opened up for weddings.
After she explained her vision… it just came dancing to live in my mind! You see, Noor’s style is very artistic and for her, it’s all in the details…she was determined to show her guests a wedding they would never forget!
Unfortunately, I was not able to get the contract for decor (The awesome Sara Baig did)… however because of the connection we made at our meeting and the show… Noor reached out and said she simply had to find a way for me to be a part of her wedding! That’s where we settled on the Day of Coordinator role.…
All I can really say is WOW. The 2011 wedding season really took off!
I had the most amazing time working with interesting couples, designing awesome weddings, working with worderful inspiring vendors and seeing everything come to life!
Some pretty exciting updates are I had a wedding published a couple weeks ago in Kismet magazine! It was a 2 page spread in the “real weddings” section. My couple Natasha and Ladislav were so interesting to work with. They came to me with the idea of “Burlesque” and it was my job to make that wedding appropriate. The outcome was stunning!
The traditional Hindu ceremony took place at Graydon Hall Manor, with the reception at Arcadian Court (Side Note: The first time I saw a picture of Arcadian Court I fell in love, even when planning my brother’s wedding I secretly kept it out of the short list! LOL).
When I first met Natasha and Ladislav they were too cute for my life! They were very keen on making their special day very unique and representative of themselves! I loved how their wedding was truly going to embody their playfulness and mystic.
As soon as Natasha told me about her theme, I immediately went through my inspiration index in my head and began to excitedly sketch their centerpiece. I told Natasha it would take a week to complete her proposal, however I just couldn’t wait… I sent it to her that night!
Seeing her face when she walked into the hall was absolutely priceless! I was so touched that I evoked such emotion, it made me feel I was doing some good in my life.
You should definitely check out the Kismet magazine… but here are some photos of Natasha and Ladislav’s wedding to tie you over!…
