Campbell Studios was so psyched when Mark Kingsdorf of The Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants asked us to be the Floral Sponsor for last nights sold out industry networking event held at The Please Touch Museum (PTM) by The Knot. Kim Rifici ( and I had such a fun time picking the rentals out to compliment Mark's "Speak Easy/1920's Art Deco Party" theme inspiration. We started with the linens that Nancy Bauman from Gala Cloths provided and it all started to come together.
When guests entered the South Foyer, they were greeted with an Art Deco vibe..the Pluto Linen dressed the tables here and Campbell Studios used all silver toned containers in sleek designs. When I look at all the vintage wedding portraits I have collected from that time period, (aside from the masses of Plumosus Fern!) I think of classic flowers such as Baby's Breath, Chrysanthemums, Gardenias and Roses. I also think of those gorgeous Max Leverrier Deco Lamps. So as a homage to the 20's we made giant Baby's Breath spheres on trumpet vases, tulips in stylized tulip vases and roses/gardenias here and there. Ann Marie Casey was attending and graciously shot a couple set up pics for us...Thank You AMC!
The white furniture from Dave Buckley from AFR kept the design grounded and Ellen Diamond Williamson from On Q Productions Inc. highlighted all the details with her fabulous lighting team. Shutterbooth gave everyone a chance to capture the moment with complimentary photo booth fun.
When guests moved on from cocktails into Hamilton Hall we flowed from "Deco" to "Speak Easy." Bentwood chairs added just the right touch to the Waldorf Damask linens...we finished them off with cigar boxes, vintage books and ferns (I had to get the ferns in there somewhere!)
Carmen Tomassetti and the CTO Artists rocked the house while Dave Williams of CinemaCake captured it all on film for the evening! Susan Beard Photography was the official Photographer Sponsor - stay tuned for their event images!
Brian Toner from Eventions kept all the sponsors logos rolling on his video screens - like ours which recently made its debut:
