When Nicole contacted us about styling a celebration for her expected little boy, she knew exactly what she wanted. Her career in visual marketing gave voice to her inspiration for a wabi-sabi styled picnic.
In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi (侘寂) is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic can be described as appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.
After several meetings and a site visit to share our vision (which I was thrilled to be on point with!), it was finally just a few days before our picnic, Nicole emails me to say she has covid. My heart broke for her - I can't imagine being in your third trimester and contracting this virus. Mama triumphed and delivered a healthy baby boy, Ari.
A couple months delayed, and now a sip 'n see, Nicole was finally able to celebrate this beautiful stage - motherhood. The aesthetic she had envisioned beautifully captured by Savanna Marie Photo. Custom design, bespoke favors, tailored charcuterie, belinis, bubbly pouring, and baby toes ... dreamy indeed!
