I’m not even sure where to begin with this one other than to say that it was a dream come true. I know, I know. It’s cliche and you’ve heard it a million times, and YES, it really was a pinch me I must be dreaming moment for all of us involved, but for the woman behind the entire design, it was LITERALLY a dream come true. You can read and see her vision in it’s entirety on her blog, but here is a little excerpt from how Nathalie, the brains and beauty behind Luxe Fete, turned her dream into a reality:
From her blog post, she writes, “My passion is curating events and experiences that take one’s breath away. “How do you stay inspired Nathalie?” I am often asked. The answer is easy. I allow myself to dream. One night, I literally dreamt I had a bride who wanted a black and gold cake (It’s always about the sweets for me). I wondered, “Who is this girl? What would her story be? And how can I tell it? A clear vision of a styled shoot at the Versace Mansion came into view. And. This. Is. It.”.
You guys. I’m so humbled and grateful and beside myself because dang, I’m proud of these images. I will forever be grateful to Ozzy for his trust and encouragement, Nathalie for her faith in me, her team because OH MY WORD are they amazing, and my husband, who always gets credit because he’s my knight in shining armor, cheering me on and waiting home for me with flowers.
