Happy Monday lovelies! Today we have an interview with the lovely Michelle of Michelle Durpetti Events, based in Chicago, IL. Take it away, Michelle!
Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.
My name is Michelle Durpetti, I have been planning and producing events my entire career, and have owned by own business for ten years. (Time flies!)
In 2010 I steered McGowan Durpetti & Associates (previously owned with a business partner and focused on events more than weddings) in a new direction with the re-launch of the company as Michelle Durpetti Events, expanding its list of services to include wedding coordination and destination management in addition to event management and creative development. I come from a long line of entrepreneurial spirit and I am really proud of my company’s perpetual commitment to excellence.
For your Friday we’re bringing you this romantic Dallas garden shoot by Refined Romance Events! A bit about the shoot:
People say that opposites attract right? Well, picture this, the hustle and bustle of downtown city life vs. the serenity and peace of a beautiful garden. Put these two scenes together and they create a perfect counterpart to each other.
Today we’re here with this lovely invitation suite by Brown Fox Creative! A bit about the design:
The goal for this suite was to create an invitation that felt formal and feminine, but with a touch of rustic elegance. Metallic gold ink printing on the gate and invitation elevated the formalness, whereas the wood textured gate card for the invitation brought it back to the original rustic elegance we we’re going for. Our favorite touch to this suite is the circular menu for the place settings!
Today’s lovely styled shoot comes to us from The Happy Ginger Co. and is perfect for the upcoming Fourth of July US holiday! Here’s Emily with more:
The best day of the summer is always the 4th of July! Instead of backyard barbeques and fireworks in the park, we created a red, white, and blue themed styled shoot. The result was a gathering with a strong color palette, a rock ‘n roll bride-to-be, and whimsical southern details. All ideal aspects for a patriotic summer party in Nashville, Tennessee.
Today’s gorgeous inspiration comes from Shelby Rae Photographs, based in Atlanta, Georgia! Here’s what she had to say:
A chilly (yes very strange for August) summer afternoon in Milwaukee, Wisconsin third wheeling with these two. I always feel so honored when friends ask me to document their exciting seasons of life. We explored downtown Milwaukee and then went to one of my favorite locations on the water! Thanks for being amazing Karly & Ryan and getting a little soaked! Hehe. Love their love
Kaylee and Adam were married this month at Baker Street Station located in downtown Fort Wayne and it’s about the coolest place I’ve ever seen for a wedding! The Baker Street has lots of old world charm mixed with elegant style and lots of beautiful windows!! The Baker Street use to be a Train Station years ago where people would board the train to travel across the country.
See the rest of the beautiful photos after the cut!
We’re so pleased to have this lovely New Orleans wedding here for you today, photographed by Ibay Photography! From the submission:
The St. Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operated Streetcar in the entire world, and has been running steadily since 1835. The St. Charles Avenue line is the most operated and used of all of the city’s RTA lines, and it never lets it’s passengers down, a combination of locals headed to work and tourists enjoying our amazing city.
Today we’re featuring this beautiful bold invitation suite by Designs by Sarah LLC! Here’s Sarah with a description:
This bold letterpress invitation suite was achieved through a collaboration between bride and designer. The color palette, motif and fonts—provided by the couple—were used to drive the Spanish theme of their event. To highlight the texture of the font and motif, the complete design was printed in letterpress on a pearl cotton stock. Shimmery bright colored envelopes pulled everything together to express a refined Spring wedding mood.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company
Hello everyone! My name is Krystal! I have been photographing weddings professionally since 2010! These days the majority of the work is weddings and the photo sessions that correlate with weddings. (Engagement, boudoir, bridal showers) I photograph between 25-30 weddings per year in Pittsburgh, New Jersey, and Disney Cruise Line Weddings! I do follow my couples through life stages and am very glad when I get the opportunity to keep photographing them and their families long after the wedding day.
