Straight from the set of an old Hollywood movie, this Luxury Southern inspired creative shoot was a dream to design for. When Jackie and Stephanie from Jaclyn Watson Events asked me if I would be up to design for this special creative shoot I said yes immediately. These ladies had a vision for a lush, Southern aesthetic, with dramatic colors, opulent touches, and nods to the Derby Days. As a designer, when you have a opportunity to create with almost no parameters the first things you think of (or I think of anyways) are the things you have yet to do or have wanted to try. For me that was playing with white ink on a coal black envelopes with gorgeous, colorful vintage stamps (thanks Etsy!), shimmery gold ink and tropical palm leaves. We also created some large bar menus and tiny white and gold favor tags for the mini horse favors at each place setting. Enjoy traveling back in time to the Derby Days…
