12 Gorgeous Modern Wedding Details

Japanese Umbrella

Easily one of the happiest days of my life was my wedding day. Sam and I were lucky enough to work with the best wedding planner ever, Jeannie Savage from Details Details. Not only did Jeannie understand our design taste, she introduced us to Sunny Ravanbach of White Lilac Inc, who was able to take our initial thoughts and ideas and run with them. In the end, Jeannie and Sunny helped us create the most beautiful wedding we could have ever asked for. You can see some pictures, here. Though it’s been awhile since that day, every so often, I’ll look through Jeannie’s blog to see the weddings she’s helping dream up. Like her company’s name states, Jeannie is all about the details.

In 2014, we raved about Intersections, a captivating wooden cube that cast dreamy shadows with a single light bulb. Fortunately for us, Agha is still creating intricate installations in this style, with her most recent, radiant piece being All The Flowers Are For Me.
