Brides Magazine and Riedel Crystal Competition

About two months ago I was invited by Brides Magazine and Riedel Crystal to take part in their national tabletop design challenge.

Riedel generously allowed me take my pick from their gorgeous collection.

Once I saw their glamorous pink champagne flutes, it was all over.  I found the perfect product that allowed me to incorporated my signature touch of pink.  With that said, I knew I it would take a lot more than pink champagne flutes to win over America's affection with fierce competition on tap like Sasha Souza and Birch Design Studio.
We've moved! Please join us at: Ariel Yve Design

I had to give my traditional "pretty" aesthetic a new twist.  I had to make my tablescape appeal to the sophisticated East Coast bride as well as the chic and trendy West Coast bride. I'm rather pleased with the result, but I'll let you be the judge.

Here's a teaser shot.

If you like the look I created, I'd greatly appreciate you taking a moment to vote for me ("Ariel Yve").

The winning design will be featured in the next printed issue of Brides Magazine, and for taking the time to vote, you'll be entered for a chance to win the fabulous pink Riedel Crystal champagne flutes that I featured in my design, plus $1,000!  How cool is that?

A big thanks to:
-Michael Costa for taking such stunning photos.
-Hayim from Luxe Event Rentals for providing the fabulous furniture, chandelier, photo shoot venue, etc.
-Mark from Ideal Lighting and Sound for the super clean lighting and draped backdrop.
-Amy from Vanilla Bake Shop for hooking me up with one of her incredible cakes.
-Lindsay from Classic Party Rentals (Culver City) for the ever glorious, silver burst chargers and flatware.
-Michele Ponto for inviting me to take part in the Brides Magazine/Riedel First Look Challenge.
-Ariel Yve Design did the flowers (a.k.a. little ol' me), so no formal thanks on the floral front...though, I am thankful to my floral supplier (Cindy), who graciously allowed me to change my entire floral order the day before the shoot due to being "inspired" by the freshness of their lavender callas, garden roses and hydrangeas.
