Silk and Sabal Brand Launch | Wedding Styled Shoot

The launch of Silk and Sabal is finally here! To celebrate the arrival, 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 in the many different wedding venues that Orlando has to offer as well as various venues around the nation. 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. This means we’ll take on only a few select weddings or events in a year. 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 our lead planner and owner, not through a large team. We walk our clients through each step of their planning and design, with no detail too big or small.

Silk and Sabal Styled Shoot | Details

On a summer afternoon, Central Florida wedding vendors collaborated together to celebrate the launch of Silk and Sabal with a styled shoot. Silk and Sabal creates authentic and timeless moments through carefully curated details inspired to reflect their client’s unique story while balancing inspiration from the environment and bringing 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 with dried palms, ranunculus, la playa roses, dahlias, scabiosa pods, mini roses, stock flower, lisianthus, and orchids. She completely transformed the blank white walls into a bright and enchanting backdrop for each model. The floral was complete with rentals by our friends at Wizard Connection. They helped us transform the space into the perfect setting for this shoot.

FASHION | Bridal fashion was provided by our friends at The Bridal Finery. Clean and chic gowns were hand-selected by Fashion Director, Jamie O’Neill. Highly sought after wedding dress designers including Ines Di Santo, Sareh Nouri, and Carolina Herrera were all included in this shoot. Jamie selected perfectly paring 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. From helping with gown styling to having creative ideas for model posing and placement, she arrived with her team and they got to work right away! We adore these images and couldn’t wait to share every single image!

A special thank you to the incredible vendor team!
