Pinup Competition Photo Shoot

I had the privilege of shooting the winners of our town's pinup contest during Rods & Rails - a very fun vintage car show.  

I had NO idea they would go all out like they did.  Just LOOK at how beautiful the winner was!!! And the pompadour wasn't even going to enter the contest -- but we convinced him and he won! Apparently he dresses like that every single day.  I love it.

A Day in the Park...

Hello!  It's really ME!  Life has changed so much since I last blogged.  Lets see here:


I'm doing my event styling here (and Rae is continuing in Montana) and some photography!

Wyoming is WINDY.  Not liking that so much.

Tanner is working as a pressure tester on natural gas rigs.  Beyond that, not really sure what it means I know he comes home with muddy boots and smells like exhuast.  :)

The town I am in (Rock Springs) has an AWESOME historic downtown with lots of vacant buildings and architectural salvage!

We're considering a Vintage Whites Market here next year! eee!

I'm so glad to be back..blogging that is.  I missed it.  I'm freaking out a little as I realize how many posts I have to catch up on.  THREE months worth.  Yikes!  I've missed you ALL!

Rae, my lovely friend and business partner, is going to be blogging here as well -- showing off design inspiration and posts for the kiddos.  Her daughter Luisa (or as we affectionately call her, LuLu) is just beautiful.  

And speaking of kids, I did my first photo shoot last weekend with two adorable kids and three adorable chicks!!  I'll leave you with pictures of that for now.  I can't wait to get connected again.

His sister is no different.  Beautiful and radiant in the sunshine!

 The baby chicks were so adorable and cuddly!

New Years Party

We spent New Years decorating a fabulous wine bar in Whitefish, Montana for their biggest party every year.  Our palette was white, grey, & silver.  There was a ton of glitz, a ton of glam, and even disco balls. We had a blast! 

The main event of the night was a fantastic DJ and band named Firefly.  With all the dancing, we had to make sure most of our decor was up high and out of the way.

For one of our main focal pieces, we created a multi dimensional bubble chandelier to accent the Champagne Room -- a favorite spot tucked away with comfy seating and romantic lighting.

During the night, the track lighting was focused on this piece - making it a beautiful source of light.

For the main room, we implemented a few simple elements to make the room pop without taking away from the dance floor. 

A curtain of crystals, silver, clear, and glittered ornaments hung from tulle and grey fabric to catch light from the disco balls.

We also hand dyed fabric using the ombre technique to achieve a gradation of dark grey to white to hang as panels above the seating area.

To carry the fun, sparkling essence of champagne throughout the venue, we created a piece of art on an 8' sheet of plywood that held quotes from Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, and other great figures in history.  We wanted this to be a very fun piece, and something people would actually read while mingling and enjoying the last of 2010.

"Come quickly, I am tasting the stars." is our favorite.

To finish the look, we added tinsel, silver trees, and to top it all off -- 2 disco balls that made everything sparkle.

We hope your New Years eve was full of fun, looking ahead, and resolution for 2011.  Cheers!
