By now you should know that I live and breathe everything Anthropologie.  Thankfully, my lovely creative party designer Ricki Uster of la Ricki does as well.  During one of our lunch dates where we sit and brainstorm and encourage one another in business, I asked if she’d be interested in designing her dream wedding – from pulling wardrobe to designing the creative touches, I was positive that Ricki’s dream wedding would be mine as well.

So, with a month of time to plan and gathering some of our friends around the Valley to participate in this concept shoot to showcase what we can do together with our creative minds, this is what we came up with.  A very “Anthro” inspired wedding.  Brides, you can achieve this look – find the right designer (la Ricki) who will give you those touches, the right wardrobe, complimentary jewelry, creative hair, picture perfect makeup, the right furniture, and a lovely organic location, and you’re set.  Oh, and don’t forget the photographer who loves Anthro to pieces. *wink*  Who else is going to capture this Anthro style? (Yes, I call my photography Anthro style, seriously).

We all hope that you are left inspired.  Thank you to all the vendors listed at the end of this blog for your participation, time and creativity.  It is because of each and every single one of you that this shoot was a dream for Ricki and myself.  Thank you, thank you.  And now, the blog post that I’ve been dying to reveal to all of you.
