In May of 2010, we were honored to work with a dream team of vendors at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island for a workshop put on by Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events and Carla Teneyck, called Collaborate and Create.  The three day seminar  focused on working with a community of talents to pull together a styled shoot. Along with an amazing group of attendees, we also had the creativity of our usual team to help pull together FIVE gorgeous shoots in 3 days!  Below, is just one of those incredible shoots!

In the words of Candice Coppola, the co-creator of Collaborate and Create and founder of Juliee Events,  "We designed this shoot to be rich in color and slightly quirky. There are a lot of textures and patterns and they all work really well together. Sometimes people get scared of mixing patterns and textures and instead, stick to a very generic formula of matching colors and fabrics. In some instances, that look can be wonderfulâ but with most designs, I really encourage you to embrace texture, color, and patterns. It will make your look three dimensional and more interesting!"
"We set up a beautiful table scape, which has become one of my all time favorites, with mix-matched china (some vintage, some rental), vintage silverware, hanging mirrors, vintage and rental linens, and an AMAZING centerpiece chandelier that hung above the table (with a little help from our team!)."

The fashion inspiration for the shoot was really quirky, preppy.  We love the pop of Tiffany Blue incorporated in the accessories and the quirky tuxedo detail on the Amy Kuschel gown.  It was an interesting contrast to the very casual seersucker vest and pants and fun patterned tie!
This shoot was debuted on Style Me Pretty last week in a lovely feature. Be sure to check it out for even more fabulous images.
