See all of the fab details and read more about the inspiration behind the shoot below.
What a year 2020 has been! With all that has happened this year, there is light at the end of this tunnel, and Adrianne Holmes-Redwood, Principle Planner of Phoinix Premier Events believes just that. Soon we will return to joyful celebrations, creating new memories and living our lives like they’re Golden!
This styled shoot was designed to showcase a diverse group of amazing Pittsburgh vendors and how they are still thriving during this unprecedented time. It showcases the resiliency and the creative minds that are still at work.
Phoinix Premier Events teamed up with the National Aviary and their newly opened Garden Room, which provided the perfect backdrop for this celebration of light and life! Their ceiling to floor windows, terrace, and outdoor garden are perfect for a picnic or a toast before dinner! A social-distancing toast of course!
Designed by Phoinix Premier Events, this Posh Picnic was complete with a hand-made ivory and gold, geometric rug, plush, colorful pillows, and candles. Party unboxed curated the most stylish, chic tablescape which complemented the vibrant floral designs by Gidas. The set was complete by a plentiful Charcutier Board by the Aviary’s exclusive caterer, Atria’s.
Upon entering the Aviary’s garden, you’ll know you’re in the right place when greeted by “Living my Life like it’s Golden” a modern lettering design by K. Flowers Designs. The Prosecco Boxwoods from All Occasions, with cascading lush pink, orange, white and yellow florals designed by Gidas served as the perfect statement pieces.
No cocktail hour is complete without a custom bar design. Inspired by the overall theme, K. Flowers Designs hit it out of the park. “A Toast to the Good Life” was the perfect phrase to set the mood. For an elevated bar service, you can snag a flute from the ever so chic, Champagne Wall provided by Perfect Prop.
The styling didn’t stop there the girls were basking in the good times and looking their best with make-up done by Tanecia Hodges of F.R.E.E. Beauty.
