Great Gatsby Gala for Starlet Sessions
Many many many months ago, Starlet Session ladies, Kamila Harris and Emily Aznavourian, met with me over sushi and asked if I would be interested in helping them with their official studio opening in Chestnut Hill.
So, of course, I said yes! I’ve admired Kamila Harris Photography for a while (she’s always fully booked when I have a client interested!) and Emily of Cheekadee and I work together a few times a year with our shared brides.
Since their Starlet Sessions focuses on pinup style and beautiful ladies in era clothing, they thought it would be fitting to have a theme for their party. They went with a Great Gatsby theme, which really played out well!
Here are some montage images Kamila put together:
The amazing Brittany of Petals Lane did our florals and she really hit the nail on our purple/lavendar and charcoal look. A few tables also had the crystal candle holders which added some glam to our look.
The lavendar linens and all tables were provided by Bette Sanders and Dave Buckley at Select Event Rentals.
And the adorably awesome table runners were hand crafted by the very talented Emily Aznavourian for that added touch.
Food was provided by Casual Catering of Glenside, and the passed hors d’oeuvres were based on bites that were reminiscent of the 20s period. The bar aptheocary jars were mine, but filled with delicious white and red sangria by Emily.
We had a mock cake cutting by Emily and Kamila, with a beautiful fondant cake provided by Night Kitchen Bakery.
All signage for food and bar were created by the lovely and talented Erin Proud of Proud to Plan/Proud Paper. But the whole party started with the beautiful letterpressed inviations designed by Brooke Forry of Curious and Company and printed by Clean Wash Letter Press.
But the Party is not a good party without wonderful guests. Even if the food was delicious and the decor was impeccable, if the people stink, it’s not really a good party. Fortunately of us, the guests were AWESOME! Almost everyone came dressed for the occasion and fun was had by all.
