Let me tell you about Darby Smart. They package popular DIY projects that you’ve seen around the web with all the materials you need and ship it to your house for a super low price. So, pretty much the most genius idea ever since the invention of salted caramel ice cream. They asked me to collaborate and create a DIY kit to make a version of these frosted heart glasses.

You don’t need to scour the craft store for an hour looking for etching cream only to find the giant bottle for a million dollars (that stuff is expensive!). No need to buy a pack of 8 glasses at Target when you only need 4. And the foam brush? They’ve got you covered on that too.

And the best news? I’ve got a super special link for my readers to purchase the kit at Darby Smart for $5 off. Take those five bones you saved and go grab yourself an iced coffee and a snack to enjoy while making these rad heart glasses.

When you are finished crafting, can you instagram a photo and tag me in it so I can see your awesome work? My instagram handle is @Medgemont.

Nina and Jordan are a resilient, funny, and loving couple who I just adore. Three months before their wedding, they changed their venue to Bryant Park Grill because their original location was damaged in Hurricane Sandy and just wasn’t getting fixed up fast enough. They are two smart cookies! Bryant Park Grill was WAY better for them! It perfectly matched their classic, modern style. Plus – it’s surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. Divine Light Photography blew me out of the water with how amazing these photographs are.

I designed their florals and escort cards. The ridiculous pink peonies that are available for May weddings are well worth the threat of rain (which it did, all day) and the chance of it being slightly chilly at night (yep, cocktail hour was a bit frigid). I tossed in some peach garden roses, white tulips, and bright green fern to create, what I think, is one of my favorite bouquets yet.

Ivy! Pink peonies! Bryant Park! Come on, everyone’s doing it!

 

 

We kept the chuppah simple with pops of pink, cherry blossom branches, and a loverly lace drape that Nina and Jordan can pass down to their children to use in their weddings.

Nina loved the escort cards that I did for this shoot, so we recreated them here using holographic silver confetti (of course) and crisp white cards with black type.

I topped off their cake with a few peonies and sprigs of fern.

The team that made it happen:

Flowers and Decor: Michelle Edgemont

Photographer: Divine Light Photography

Venue: Bryant Park Grill

Officially my own boss

Yesterday marked the first day that I am officially running this business without an office job in the way. Or, a better way of putting it, is that I’m now able to continue to work full time on designing kick ass weddings for my clients without having to juggle a corporate day job. For the past one and a half years I’ve worked as a textile designer from 9-6 and grew my company every other hour that I could find.

It was ridiculously hard.

And now it’s over. There were some days and nights when I never thought this week would ever come. But it’s here and I have big plans. YAY!! YAY!! YAY!! I’ll be working from my home studio making modern decorations, putting together colorful floral arrangements, and continuing to grow this business to serve creative couples who have an unconventional style.

I’ve got styled shoots planned, a full calendar of amazing couples who are getting married this summer and fall, my first bat mitzvah, baby showers, breakfast dates, dinner dates, coffee dates, and beach days. I’m currently booking for 2014 – saying your I Dos and want some custom, modern decor? Hit me up!
