Silk and Sabal Brand Launch | Wedding Styled Shoot

To celebrate the arrival, of Silk and Sabal we created a styled shoot to tell the story of the brand. Continue to read as we share more about the Silk and Sabal brand and our first styled shoot!

The Taylor Rae Events wedding planning team welcomes Silk and Sabal to Central Florida and World Wide couples! For years our team has created one of a kind events at venues in and around Orlando. Basically, our passion for personalized special events brought the Silk and Sabal concept to life. 

Silk and Sabal is a full-service event design and planning company specializing in personalized occasions worldwide. We create authentic and timeless moments through unique details and designs. 

The Silk and Sabal team specializes in full-service wedding planning, which allows us to give our undivided attention to your special event. Basically, this means that we only take on only a few select weddings or events in a year.

In other words, your wedding will be one of the six Silk and Sabal weddings! We approach wedding planning with boutique service where you will be working one-on-one with a lead planner. We walk our clients through each step of their planning and design, with no detail too big or small.

Styled Shoot Details

To celebrate the launch of Silk and Sabel, we hosted a styled shoot on a sunny Central Florida summer afternoon. Through carefully crafted details and design, Silk and Sabal create authentic and timeless moments. Events are inspired to reflect their client’s unique stories while balancing inspiration from the environment. We also want to make sure we bring an essence of joy and effortlessness to every occasion. 

“I wanted the shoot to reflect that effortlessness and timeless feeling, while also capturing the love, personality, and individualized quality to each of our couples. Each model was paired with a unique design that was styled around their energy and the environment around us. Our goal was to reflect the emotion and moments of each model through each of their personalized designs and details, just as we would our clients.  Our clients are those that strive for their guests to have a complete experience in every moment of their event and be captured by the moments as they happen. We take the time to get to know our clients and their individual style and personality, and what makes them excited for their big celebration. We offer our clients a boutique experience through one on one interactions as we walk with them from initial conception to that final moment.”

About The Vendors & Their Works

FLORAL & RENTALS | Jennie Maretti, Founder of Pixies and Petals created stunning floral installations, arrangements, and bouquets. She used dried palms, ranunculus, la playa roses, dahlias, scabiosa pods, mini roses, stock flower, lisianthus, and orchids. She then completely transformed the blank white walls into a bright and enchanting backdrop for each model. The floral was complete with our friends at Wizard Connection. Not only did they supply the rentals but they also helped us transform the space into the perfect setting for this shoot.

FASHION | Bridal fashion was provided by our friends at The Bridal Finery. Fashion Director, Jamie O’Neill, hand-selected clean and chic gowns. Highly sought after wedding dress designers were also included in the shoot from designers like Ines Di Santo, Sareh Nouri, and Carolina Herrera. Jamie also selected perfectly paired bridal accessories and a veil that took the bridal fashion to the next level!

BEAUTY | The models were photo-ready with the help of bridal hair and makeup artist, Tiffany, owner of Bronze Glow Beauty. While the overall makeup was light and fresh, the bridal looks were chosen specifically for each model to highlight their individual beauty. From curly updos to beachy waves, the hair and makeup for this shoot can be used as a real inspiration for any bride.

PHOTOGRAPHY | Kristen Weaver captured all the moments from this styled shoot. Her eye for detail and love for bridal fashion made her the perfect photographer for this project. She assisted with grown styling while also posing our models, she arrived with her team and they worked hard from start to finish! We adore these images and couldn’t wait to share every single image!

A special thank you to the incredible vendor team!
