Welcome to the place where my heart and soul reside! This is where I come to write about and showcase ALL things that make a mark on me – things that are chic, beautiful, inspiring, and totally unique in the Luxury Wedding and Event Planning industries! This is also the place to find inspiration and tips from our Creative Partners. Often, the wedding and fashion worlds intertwine. So occasionally, I’ll include my favorite fashion finds, trends, and current obsessions. My desire is to give you a peek into a world that has always fascinated me and continues to excite me! Welcome to The Bridal Circle blog.
When it comes to working with a bride, I always say, it’s best to start with a conversation. Truly, it is that simple. Our site is designed as a inspiration destination and our goal is to have our couples very well educated on our process before they even send the first email. By then we’ve encouraged them to consider their own aesthetic, art style, design wishes, etc. Once they get in touch, we like to hop on a phone conference right away to introduce ourselves, address lingering questions and of course talk art!
Education is a huge part of what we do everyday. Most couples come to us knowing little about fine art, illustration techniques and what I call artist speak. Since our process is so heavily based in fine art and traditional techniques we have to establish ways to communicate with those who are new to the concept.
In the first design discussion we ask a lot of questions, try to pinpoint the nuance of color selection, style and mood. We also are careful to ensure our couples feel comfortable in the space of discussing stylistic and artful concepts. This can be the trickiest task. Everyone comes to us with some level of vision and it is our #1 job to draw that out and engage in meaningful dialogue as a path to heartfelt design.
Then we move on to creating real samples to explore all the chatter and give our couples something tangible to consider. In this digital age it is not important but imperative that we create tangible moments amidst all the conveniences of technology and social media. We are artists first and foremost and our magic lies in the moment brush touches paper…
Our couples deserve to experience that and it is our daily challenge to ensure they do through captivating photography, descriptive editorial and meaningful conversation.
