When E. and I hired Merryl Brown Events, we began tossing ideas back and forth on Pinterest, filled out a multi-page questionnaire, then went up to Santa Barbara to meet Merryl in person. After rounds of phone calls and emails, Merryl Brown and her team had a complete sense of what E. and I wanted for our wedding: something elegant, incorporating our love of travel, with whimsical European touches.
Merryl and Kathryn took the vague ideas E. and I presented them with, rounded them out beautifully, and presented us with two awesome inspiration boards. We picked this one.
As you can see, the general vibe will be very “1930s European princess returning on the Venice-Simplon Orient-Express to her Tuscan castle” (at least, that’s my wordy take!).
E. and I have happily put ourselves in Merryl’s hands, and we can’t wait to see how she brings the vision to life. It’ll feature, at least in part, vintage steamer trunks, a long banquet table, candles everywhere, dramatic lighting, and royal blue with blood orange accents.
I recently bought my dress, which I’m dying to share with you, but E. reads this blog and I obviously want to surprise him. Instead, I’ll be sharing some of the dresses I didn’t pick in an upcoming post, and dish with you guys all about what went into the search.
