Swooning over here! The incredible Rachel from Blue Barn Photography snapped these gorgeous images from my tablescape design at the 21st annual Carolina Inn Bridal Showcase that was held this past Sunday! I’m excited to share the design of my table with you, and I’m so pleased with how it came together. I feel like it’s a perfect representation of Stephanie Scholl Events and my style, and I just love how it turned out!

This was my very first bridal show in any capacity, and I had the best time! It was a true joy meeting so many sweet & excited brides, grooms, and family members, as well as other wonderful wedding industry vendors. It was a long day – but in the best way possible! I absolutely loved getting to talk with everyone, to share my heart and my business, and to make so many great connections. The Carolina Inn has long been one of my very favorite wedding venues (my sister was even married there!), and it was a definite pinch-me moment to be a hard of this amazing bridal showcase.

Of course, I didn’t do this all on my own! I am so very grateful to some dear friends in the wedding industry who helped bring this vision to life. The amazingly talented Alana from Serendipity Designs worked with me on this gorgeous, organic centerpiece that incorporated many of my favorite flowers (Juliet garden roses, ranunculus, jasmine, double tulips, Queen Anne’s lace, and blue thistle). She is a true floral genius, and I had a blast learning from her. And my good friend Alexa from Sage Paper Co. contributed these perfect watercolor place cards and menu for my tabletop! She did exactly what I envisioned, and more, and they were the perfect addition to this design. On the day of the bridal showcase, my two dear friends, Ally from Ally King Photography and Rachel from Blue Barn Photography, graciously volunteered to be onsite and help represent Stephanie Scholl Events throughout the day. I am so, so very thankful for all of these wonderful friends (and fellow wedding industry pros) who helped me out so much!!

Brides, I still have a few open slots for 2016 and am now booking for 2017! You can learn more about Stephanie Scholl Events on my website, and you can contact me at stephanie@stephaniescholl.com! I would love to hear from you!!

And another thank you to Blue Barn for all of these swoon-worthy images!

This Week

This week is a busy one, especially considering it’s the “off-season” for weddings! Well, I’m coming to realize that there’s really never an off-season when you own your own business, but there are definitely times of the year and seasons when there are more weddings than others, more editorial shoots, more behind-the-scenes business work, and new + exciting business updates. Anyway, I have two styled shoots and the Carolina Inn Bridal Showcase this week, so it’s going to be a little crazy… but in the best way possible!

I am really excited to bring these two shoots to life, and I’m also looking forward to the Carolina Inn bridal showcase on Sunday! It’s the first time I’ll ever be in a bridal showcase/bridal show, and I can’t wait to meet the sweetest brides and grooms there! These watercolor calligraphy placecards are the most beautiful addition from Alexa at Sage Paper Co., and I have been swooning over them all week!! I spent time this past week finalizing linen and tabletop rentals for the bridal showcase and my shoots, as well as spending a few hours at Anthropologie for an exciting addition to an editorial shoot. It’s been a full few weeks of details, timelines, emails… and some fun outings like these, too! anthro

I’ll be sharing a ton throughout the coming few days on Instagram, so be sure to follow along there, too!
