ESPECIALLY when it is inspired by the designs of Mary McDonald (of Bravos Million Dollar Decorator fame).
And it just goes to show how easily interior design can be translated into wedding details.
They are constantly at personal odds but have launched Sugarbaker Designs, an interior design firm.

Design and Olive Route on the stationery helm for a knock-our-socks-off shoot just bursting with personality.

Stop by the gallery for more from this fab creation and check out our tips below on how to bring some of these details to life.
So how do you take gorgeous inspiration from blog to real life wedding.
Heres some great ways to incorporate those gorgeous details from this Interior Design Inspired shoot:Using pattern Having an entire reception filled with patterned linens may not be an option but try incorporating a pattern you love into napkins, a table runner, backing table numbers or on name cards.
A dose of gorgeous pattern goes a long way and by incorporating small bits throughout your event, you can really add that wow factorAlternatives to Flowers We love how todays shoot incorporated veggies and plants into the tablescape.
Herbs, succulents, vines, artichokes – these all work for a gorgeous centerpiece.
Also, instead of a vase filled with an arrangement, try floating a single peony (or other large bloom) in a water filled vase.
Adding Metallics We havent met a sparkle that we dont adore or a gold piece we can live without; basically we go crazy for all things metallic and sparkly and think a little dash on the table or photo booth backdrop is pure perfection.
Adding your Style Stamp Take cues from your home when deciding on a style or color palette for your wedding.
Maybe your really into earth tones and an organic affair speaks to your heart.
Whatever your style may be, it can easily translate into elements for your Big DayFrom Kaella of Kaella Lynn Events Our inspiration for this photo shoot was interior design, notably that of Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorator and author, Mary McDonald.
Glossing over the pages of her book, Interiors, we can’t help but notice how her principles of interior decorating apply to wedding design.
There’s even an official “Color of the Year” announced a few weeks ago by Pantone, the world’s color authority, that impacts consumer choices in weddings and fashion, interior and graphic design, furnishings, and even cosmetics.
Turning to interior design for inspiration can help a couple identify their style, and subsequently their wedding theme.
The interior has a wedding theme with a glamorous, contemporary, warm and extremely sexy feel.
And while DIY will forever have a place in our hearts, we wanted to create a classic look for the modern couple really utilizing the professional eye of an event designer, stylist, florist, etc.
An aesthetic that, for the purposes of our shoot, is synonymous with Mary McDonald’s style: bold, chic and timeless.
?The foggy San Francisco winter weather lends itself to classic indoor weddings, but by no means should this equal a drab affair.
Therefore, we chose a striking, rich color scheme of emerald, gray and gold.
As one would in their home, we employed these colors through layered textures, patterns and accessories.
Often forgotten is the bridal party/sweetheart table backdrop, which is oh-so-important for framing and staging in photos.
We created a backdrop of Quatrefoil curtains, velvet drapes and sequin pillows, creating the cozy yet luxurious feel of a grand living/dining room.
Lacquer statues, gold accents and green plants weaving through the table décor pile on the texture while chinoiserie images and graphic details walk the line between old world and modern glamour.
Our venue, The Box SF, struck the same balance, and we felt compelled to include some of their antiques in our shoot.
