Today we have a fabulously modern tablescape from Ariella Chezar and Meg Smith. The contrast of hot red and orange against the stark white studio is such a sophisticated look – I can just imagine wedding guests coming in from the cold to find this burst of flame red and orange. I also love a bride in a chic white pantsuit.

Ariella used parrot tulips, ranuculus, nerines, clivia and Icelandic poppies in the bouquet and centerpieces.

Long before I ever started Snippet & Ink, I was drooling over the floral designs of Ariella Chezar, and the photography of Meg Smith, two of the most talented women out there. I can probably list about five people whose work inspired me to start this blog, and Ariella and Meg are two of them. So I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when they sent me several gorgeous and inspiring wedding shoots, and how honored I am to share them with you here on Snippet & Ink.

      Orange is one of my favorite colors, which is why I decided to use it as the dramatic color in our October wedding. I have been searching for creative invites and placecards incorporating orange and I LOVE these. PLEASE tell me where I can find them!
