I was super excited to photograph this project of styled tabletops for NewlyWish. The unique contemporary registry site NewlyWish recently collaborated with Waterford, Wedgwood and Royal Doulton, featuring individually styled table settings by 5 wedding tastemakers including: Abby Larson (Style Me Pretty), Ceci Johnson (Ceci Stationery), Xochitl Gonzalez & Mayra Castillo (of Always a Bridesmaid), Marcy Blum, Atelier Mark Ingram plus Jorge Pérez, and Lord Wedgwood. Each table was styled by the sweet and talented Eric Hildebrand. The gorgeous flowers were done by Melarosa. Working with Amanda and Robard from NewlyWish and the whole team during this shoot was super fun. It was the day Hurricane Irene was approaching nyc, making this shoot so memorable. Throughout he 11 hour day - I was on the phone with the hubby, coordinating our evacuation. We left that night for upstate NY, sealed our home and hoped for the best. Luckily all was well and we got a nice little escape from the city, unexpectedly. Check out the table settings below, which is your fave? oh, and the best part?

Abby's table above, soft pinks + vintage charm
Ceci's table makes me think of a mod mexican fiesta
Xotchitl and Mayra's farmhouse table feels like a great setting for a fancy brunch
Marcy's table: parisian & elegant- love the yellow stripes, so daring
Mark's table is utterly sophisticated
And the Lord Wedgwood's set - a contemporary parlor feel
Thanks again to NewlyWish for having me out to shoot this and to the Wedgwood team for hosting us at their beautiful nyc showroom.
