I have really always loved a good theme or intentional aesthetic. It is one of my all time favorite things to figure out for any event. Whether that is a full Greek theme inspired dinner party with Mediterranean food or a circus themed birthday party with just the right amount of cotton candy. This Spanish inspired wedding, from the minds of our bride and groom, leaves no detail untouched. From the white balloons over each table, the colorful glassware, the aisle rugs and the beautiful florals, this wedding is filled to the brim with inspiration.Read More
When you plan a wedding, you think of colors and different themes that may or may not make sense to you and your partner's personalities. It is really cool to see just how a real wedding can truly showcase the couples personalities. I think that is probably my favorite part of working in the wedding industry... Actually getting to know someone and seeing how their personality shows through their wedding design and what it is they want to achieve day of. This next wedding is no exception.Read More
One day, years ago, Kris & Tyler (the husband/wife duo behind Konsider It Done ------> that's us!) were driving down Arizona Ave. when they heard a sound that caught their attention. Intrigued to locate the source of the noise, they turned down a small, beautiful tree-lined road and found themselves at the gates of Tremaine Ranch listening to Leah belting out Taylor Swift lyrics loud enough to be heard over the sound of Matt’s circular saw. Ok, so that’s not how we actually came to know Leah and Matt, but damn if it doesn’t capture how it feels every time we see or work with them.Read More
If you've been on the internet that past few years, and hopefully not hiding under a rock, you're familiar with a website called Pinterest. Pinterest is every persons bff when they're planning a wedding. For our own wedding, we pinned so many great ideas that were necessities for our special day. But, what if what you love on Pinterest is completely unrealistic...
Photographs are the best way to share what you can't always verbally explain. I constantly ask our clients to share any inspiration pictures with me or grant me access to their Pinterest board for their event so I can better understand the overall inspiration they've found. Figuring out your color palette can be really hard, but photography really guides a client in the overall aesthetic they want to achieve.
Being sure to only pin those images that are 'must have' or great to express the vibe you want to set is key! Don't get carried away by pinning every single thing you love about a wedding that you've seen from scrolling through your Pinterest feed. There are a million different ideas out there, but figuring out the right colors and setting can really make your event board one of a kind. There are going to be new images uploaded to Pinterest every day. This means that it gives you more than enough opportunity to change your mind. Find what you love, and continue on that path. It can be really awesome finding new ideas or trends, but it isn't worth the stress of last minute changes.
Focus on pinning real weddings or events, and stay away from inspiration. One of the things we really try to do in any inspiration shoots we plan and execute ourselves, is to keep it real. We try to stay away from flower arrangements or decor that we don't think makes sense. We love a good custom piece, but real weddings are not always cable to be customized. Pinterest is filled with custom themed decor or flower arrangements that are usually from styled shoots. One of the biggest reasons why we want to keep it real is because owning a business is no joke. If every client of ours wanted a 100% customized event, I think we would go out of business. Pinterest has done a great job at getting imagery out there for people to use and to help inspire people to stay away from repeat design. Just proceed with caution while you're on your Pinterest journey.
And finally, we recommend following small businesses who who in the event industry in your city and state. Following their work and seeing what type of pins are inspiring them can really help you work with a team of talented vendors on your wedding, who know what they're doing and can, in fact, get you the Pinterest wedding of your dreams.
