Vendor Highlight: Lindsey Dunlap

I first met Lindsey on an editorial shoot and I was completely blown away by her intuitive creative talent, her eye for design, texture and color and her incredible skills for organization and communication to boot. She’s a rare combination of creatively intuitive and organizationally analytical. I think that’s why we get along so well. She can take any idea or inkling of a creative thought I might have and flesh it out into something not only creatively genius but also come up with something that is exactly what I had in mind but could not describe. And she will execute it flawlessly, every time.

We have since worked together on many shoots and she never ceases to amaze. Scroll down to see her amazing work on our mini shoot at Beehive Studio and stay tuned for an incredible collab with Haley Nord just shot this month.

For those of you who aren’t sure what that is, here’s the scoop.

What is a Wedding & Events Stylist?

Are you drowning in a neverending sea of non-stop Pinterest inspiration, shifting and turning on your ideas for wedding theme, colors, decor until you can’t see straight? Or do you see yourself spending countless hours at the craft store stocking up on endless supplies that will likely end up in the bin after your wedding? If you have the budget for a full scale wedding planner, I would HIGHLY recommend you pursue that. Michelle Leo Events and Belle Bodas Events are just two of my all time favorites to work with. (More on these amazing women coming soon.)

If you need feel like you’ve got the planning part well in hand but could use some direction when it comes to style and execution of your wedding day, you might consider a Wedding Stylist.

A Stylist will work with you to turn your jumbled ideas for style and theme into a streamlined look and feel for your event that best fits you and the spirit of your partner as well as the venue and your budget. Think linens, tablecloths, place settings, color themes and endless rental items like rugs, furniture and glassware.

Rather than spending precious hours combing sales bins at Crate & Barrel, a stylist will save you time (and money) by not only steering you in the right stylistic direction but by having the right connections to get everything you need for rent, get it to your event, work with your vendors to get it all set up right, and have your backyard wedding looking like a million bucks and you looking less like a hot mess on your wedding day. Even better, Wedding Styling alone is very affordable and worth all the headache you’ll save looking through swatches and picking out tables.

Lindsey WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR LIMITED DATES FOR THE UPCOMING SEASON FOR WEDDING & EVENTS STYLING AND DAY OF COORDINATION STARTING AT JUST $800.

What is a Day of Coordinator?

One thing I occasionally have to talk a Bride or Groom out of is the thought that they themselves can be in charge of coordination on the day of their wedding. I can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to watch a tired and gruntled pair of newlyweds walking their venue after the wedding cleaning tables and sorting candles. Only a little less sad is watching haggard Mother of the Bride gathering gifts and votive candles.

If you hire one vendor for your wedding, PLEASE let it be a Day of Coordinator. A Day of Coordinator is just what it sounds like, someone you hire to show up well ahead of your wedding and make sure all your vendors arrive on time, get what they need to complete their mission, and leave on time with checks in hand. A Day of Coordinator will also make sure you, your family and your wedding party get everything you need for a smooth transition from getting ready into getting hitched. They will see that everyone is in place for proper start times of ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. And they will make sure they work with all vendors at “Strike” (that time after the event everyone forgets about when you’re both off to your honeymoon and your family is left with the mess). A really great Coordinator will shoo your family and friends out the door and make sure everything at the Venue is in tip top shape to fulfill the cleanup portion of your contract.

Lindsey will be available for limited dates for the upcoming season for Wedding & Events Styling and Day of Coordination starting at just $800. As always with our Preferred Vendors, work with Lindsey, get 10% off your floral package in 2019.
