{ frozen themed style shoot | frozen birthday ball | photography }

If you have heard “LET IT GO” way too many times, you know that all things “FROZEN” are all the rage throughout the world!!!

This FROZEN Themed Style Shoot/Birthday Ball was a collaboration of the most amazingly creative vendors, who, inspired from the hit Disney film, truly turned this winter fairytale into a well styled reality.

The triple tiered fondant cake by Sugar Chef, featured drifting snow, snowflakes and rhinestones was a focal point.

Marjorie Bennett and her uh-mazing team at MB Custom Florals created a magical space of glittering snowscapes, complete with a white branched fur couch installation, and a to to-die-for royal table incorporating florals w. snowy scenes of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kirstoff + Sven, nestled in crystal globes.

Each setting featured custom place cards, w. blue glass chargers, matching goblets, glass napkin rings, sparkling linens and Louix XVI Ghost Chairs, all courtesy of Atlas Party Rental. Then, professional lighting design by Illumene, brought the Evergrene Club ballroom to life.

Highlight was the winter inspired “Dessert Table” undoubtedly the yummiest eye-popping spread ever, created and installed by the pastry chef extraordinaire Annie R. from K-Tering Desserts.

Eventually, dozens of little princesses were invited to enjoy the creations, including the birthday girl, wearing a stunning gown designed by Sasha Krasnova, and Lisette Maiorisi of Bless the Dress.

As the film played on a large screen in the background and snowflake projections danced on the walls, the children played games like “Pin-the-Nose on Olaf,” designed snowlake art, had their nails painted in glittery blues, and their hair snowed, they took turns at the portrait station, danced amongst the giant falling silver balloons, oh, and of course ate all the yummy sweets.

Gift opening on Elsa’s Throne was fun too, as the birthday girl sat with each guest, she gave them each their thank you gifts, which included silver/diamond snowflake necklaces in little tiffany boxes, crystal snowflake wands, “melted snow”, and take-out dessert boxes.

Special heartfelt thank you’s to all of the fabulous “vendors I love” who I work with throughout each year, and who come together every fall to help me create and style the most incredible fantasy worlds… Marjorie and your team, who stayed up till the wee hours to create this spectacular room, you are the best!!!! Annie from K-tering Desserts, who came all to the way from Miami to create your magic… Jenn from Sugar Chef for the beautiful cake… Heather from Atlas Rentals who sent over trucks filled w. linens, chairs, goblets, chargers and more… Shannon from Illumene, who even though he was away on vacation, still sent over staff to do their wonderful lighting, and even hunted down a branch projection just for this occasion. U all rock!!! Big thank you to Kelly for shooting alongside me and to Jessica for all her help. AnaMaja for setting up a great portrait station and working with all the little supermodels in training. And last but not least, To Nanny + Pa, for all of the millions of little + big things they helped with.

Janet + AJ’s Engagement Party was hosted with love by the Groom-to-Be’s sister + brother-in-law at their private residence in Palm Beach.

The veranda was transformed into a tented, chandeliered dining space. The table was adorned with florals, candelabras and gold chiavari chairs blended with a metallic overlay, 18k gold flatware, goblets and china.

However, it was the breathtaking sweets table that was the focal point… including an amazing multi-tiered pearl and jewel emblazoned cake, gourmet desserts, and custom cookies featuring the replicas of the proposal, the ring, and a calendar featuring the date of the deed.
