Written by Therese Jacinto:

I got in touch with Laurel from Esla Events and photographer Rizza San Agustin and we partnered up to produce this spring inspiration shoot. Our theme: Love in Watercolor. Our goal was to create something unique and fresh. We wanted to do something completely different- away from anything  "vintage" inspired, which has been the trend for quite some time. The idea was to create an urban romantic look that was light, colorful, and dreamy.
INSPIRED BY ART
Believe it or not, I thought of "watercolors" when I saw my two-year-old's abstract watercolor art. It was the perfect starting point for a lovely theme. After tossing a few ideas around with Laurel, we got to work on all the design details. We were trying to go for a versatile look that would look great as an engagement party or an actual wedding reception. 
DESIGNING THE DETAILS
We got a huge canvas and painted some watercolor accents, which served as the table cloth. Ghost chairs from Blueprint Studio Collection added a modern twist to the  soft  and romantic details. They turned out to be a great accent and didn't overpower  or take away from our tablecloth canvas.  For the flowers we went with lovely romantic blooms in watercolor hues. The Peach English garden roses (aka cabbage roses) added that extra special touch and were absolutely breathtaking. The blooms were all set in modern square vases, some of which were propped on acrylic bases and created a "floating" illusion. Instead of typical chargers, we used more acrylic bases that allowed guests to see the artwork on the table. We created pretty custom "brush stroke" print acrylic details and lots of cute props and signs. The cocktail bar was custom- made by Laurel herself and cleverly nestled within boxwood, in a great little nook in the garden. Laurel also created some custom cocktails that went with the theme and added that extra pop of delicious color. For the guestbook, we decided a "canvas" station would be perfect so we set aside an area filled with brushes and paint and let the "guests" go wild. 
We really love how a lot of simple details came together and created  this  wonderful look!
