As soon as I saw this effortless blend of mid-century styling and late winter/early spring freshness, it was absolute adoration. How beautiful is the table runner made up of faux pine trees of varying heights? Thanks to the team of Linda Chaja, Wild Heart Events, and Tenley Erin Young for pulling out all the stops on this one!
From the event stylist, Jaime of Wild Heart Events: For this shoot, we wanted to capture the feel of those last days of Winter, where the sun shines through the tops of the trees as snow and ice melts away, yet the air is still crisp and clean. We incorporated natural elements like fur, leather and pine to really get that outdoorsy vibe while setting the table with more modern place settings to give it some elegance and a more contemporary feel. We intermixed ghost chairs adorned with furs, with teak and lucite stools to achieve an icy look, complete with laser cut acrylic name place cards. Tenley lined the center of the table with pine trees of various heights that Linda shot just as the sun was shining through, bringing us back to a place deep in the mountains on those last days of winter.
