Kirsti and Kevin's wedding was one of our favorites from last season, but we have kept it hidden in our vault because we were waiting for it to be featured so it was an extra surprise. Finally...the secret is out! We were featured this week on Style Me Pretty. And you can now lay your eyes on all of the details in this modern wedding at Cave B Estate Winery.
Kirsti came to us at the recommendation of another client and I couldn't be more grateful for the referral. From our first meeting, I could tell that working with Kevin & Kirsti would be nothing but a delight. Kirsti is one of those people who walks into a room and you think, "man, I want to be friends with that person." She's poised and graceful and so kind, plus has impeccable style to boot...all the makings of an ideal KNJ client.
When we went through her preliminary ideas for her design plan, I was really excited about her vision. Kirsti wanted long banquet style tables with modern lucite chairs, which was an incredible juxtaposition to the rustic vibe of the surrounding vineyard. Everything was going so smoothly until I heard the dreaded words in our color palette discussion..."with pops of red." I am a firm believer in the beauty of a neutral color palette. Shades of white, grey and sage green immediately won me over, but then we added in red and I was stopped dead in my tracks. I tried talking her out of it, but in the sweetest way, she insisted, knowing it was the right call. I decided to embrace it and now stand completely corrected. The pop of deep red truly made the overall design. Of course, Kirsti's style prowess proved superior and I am so glad she stuck to her guns.
And ultimately, we couldn't have done this without the help of our incredible friends and photographers, The O'Malley's. Like we mentioned in our last post, getting to work with friends makes the job that much better. And the O'Malleys are some of our favorite people we know.
