Glamorous and modern styled wedding with maximalist table

If you're looking to bring BIG style to your wedding tables, but aren't sure where to start - this whimsical & dreamy styled shoot is the perfect place! At a small table in a coffee shop on the Jersey Shore a bold vision came to life, with modern florals by Sticks and Stones Flora and creative design by Sarah Montgomery Events. While minimalism and muted colors can be chic, this pair envisioned an overflowing, maximalist tabescape - filled with unique blooms and eclectic charm.

Getting inspired to go big with your details

"We knew that the creative direction would involve layers of detail. We wanted to showcase how to turn a seat at the table into a full experience. The shoot was inspired by the elaborate details often found in golden age art and countered with a bright and fresh look. We want to help people lean into the details of maximalism, while keeping it approachable, sustainable and elegant."

The guest details styled by Sarah Montgomery Events sat on top of a farm table and a velvety jewel toned blue runner, which popped against the bright neutrals. Natural stone candle holders featured pastel tapered candles that complimented the florals and contrasted with the textiles. On the sweetheart table, embroidered gold cloth sat and a velvety pink runner sat on top of a neutral base. Vintage cut glass held the florals using frog pins and a wild meadow design served as a grounding point for the design. A vintage lounge sat beside the sweetheart table.


Dovetail Vintage Rentals provided the layered of textured rentals that brought the team's maximalist vision to reality!

Wild texture flowers blended with garden roses married the casual with the sophisticated. Cream poppies sat next to David Austin roses, dainty chamomile and chartreuse sea grass. A medium centerpiece sat at the center, with an eclectic mix of bud vases flanked on either side featuring tall poppies and spirea.
