Oh yeah, you’ve waited long enough to see the next in our styled shoot decor stories inspired by our love of music…next up, “You Make Loving Fun.”

And, as Kate from Kate Whelan Events explains, “We loved being inspired by Fleetwood Mac and the ethereal Stevie Nicks. Subtle music accents, like guitar picks used as place cards, melded with boho elements like our lace-covered cake and accent drip cake; flowers were elegant and moody to match the feel of the shoot.”

So put on some groovy tunes, and feast your eyes on this beauty!
