A little bit about the photo shoot from   Classic Touch Events

Well needless to say the ladies of Classic Touch Events are in love with Z Gallerie and all of their fantastic merchandise they have to offer to newlyweds for their new homes! We will be doing a series of stylized shoots using some of our favorite Z Gallerie items. To kick things off we are introducing our sweet couple that are in the beginning stages of their relationship.

Jordyn and Jonathan, falling in love…..

She met in him college, right before COMM 301, in-between classes at the campus coffee house. He opened the door for her as she rushed in to grab a cup of coffee prior to class. She glanced up and their eyes met. He was tall, handsome and something about him took her breath away.  He smiled and said hello to her in the line for coffee and that is where it all began. She was immediately drawn to him in a way she had never felt. It was as if they were connected from lifetimes before and here in this coffee house they finally crossed paths.

They began dating and have become inseparable. Jonathan knew he was falling in love.  After a few weeks of spending most of their time together he asked her on a special date.  It was her birthday so he took her on a picnic to one of his favorite spots under an oak tree. Later he planned an intimate dessert at his home to celebrate her special day.  Although their relationship is new, Jonathan knows there is something about Jordyn that makes him want to spend the rest of his life with her.


Stay tuned for more from this adorable couple.

About Celadon & Celery

Celadon & Celery specializes in the art of design and event concepts, with  attention to quality and detail: combining shapes, materials, textures and innovative aesthetics to create memorable occasions. We offer planning, as well as styling and design: styling is a vehicle to showcase beauty, in hotels, resorts, or private homes–each has their own personality, and the first step is pinpointing the unique intricacies of each location.

The production of putting together events of every scale excites us with all the specifics that go into coordinating the vendors, the venues, the design aesthetics and the details, whether it is local or abroad. When styling photo shoots or locations, the architectural details provide inspiration; we combine items native to the property with props from our creative craft dealers to complement your personalities and any venue.

Our vision is to recreate the space with truly authentic pieces, pushing beyond flowers, fabrics and decor to construct elaborate presentations that are reflective and representative of the time, occasion and season.


Whimsical and Romantic Details from Megan Ondercin Event Design

Guess what? It is another fabulous Wedding Wednesday! I’m talking drop dead gorgeous inspiration and some serious pretty coming your way. I just love when there is beyond amazing talent creating such lovely design that I can not get enough of. Recently, I attended the Unveiled Orange County Wedding Event where I literally had to stop in my tracks, get my camera ready, and take a few shots of the beautiful details.  Who is behind all the uber talented details?   Megan Ondercin Event Design with the help of  Copper Willow Paper Studio got together and created a sweet and romantic space. Want to know the details of what my eyes were so lucky to see? Oh, you will want to grab your morning coffee, (maybe a second cup by now), and be ready to be inspired!

Megan Ondercin shares all the magic behind the design at the Unveiled Wedding Event…

I wanted to incorporate a few trends of 2013 into my booth decor at the Unveiled bridal show; mixed metallics and peach/coral hues.  This combination created such a warm and inviting space. I wanted it to evoke a romantic sunset mixed with some harder, slightly masculine touches.  I glued pennies to glass vases to create my own unique floral container.  I also wrapped copper and gold wire around the napkins, center vase, and coral water goblets.  The ribbon backdrop created such a whimsical tone that really added that “wow” factor to the space.  Then, again, mixing the soft romantic elements to the harder, more bold tones, I layered the paper medallions over-top of the ribbon backdrop.  Each medallion was spray-painted to give the look of metal without the weight of an actual metal disc.  I also kept the metallic theme going by spray-painting the handles of each piece of flatware.  Copper isn’t often used, so I’m trying to take it mainstream with this display!  Gold is everywhere, and is definitely a major trend in 2013.  So, I kept that in play while introducing copper, gold’s lesser used cousin.

One of my other favorite components were the menu place mats.  Menus are an important part of a wedding, so I wanted to use it in a fresh, new way by printing it on a paper place mat.  With the help of Copper Willow Paper Studio, we were able to create something that really helped pull everything together. The glass plates were also a custom creation.  I took glass dinner plates and, using painter’s tape, created a different striping pattern on the back for each setting. Then, before letting the spray paint fully dry, I pulled the tape off so that it created a rough edging to the stripe. 

The last show-stopper that I’m quite proud of is the custom sewn table runner with coordinating napkins. Coming from a fashion background, I love browsing fabric stores.  I went in with a specific vision of what colors and pattern I wanted and found this gorgeous cotton print. The print is modern, yet funky and cheerful.

My giveaway was a card with a single penny glued on and the famous bridal phrase “something new, something old, something borrowed, something blue….and a sixpence in her shoe.”  That last part of the saying often gets dropped out.  Since I incorporated pennies in to my design, I wanted it to carry-over as a minor theme to my giveaway.  The saying states that if the bride puts a penny, or ‘sixpence’, in her shoe it will bring good luck to the marriage. It was a hit with the guests!
