designer throws a party: “tomandjessfest”

by Grace Bonney

i always feel like the heavens have somehow aligned when two talented artists end up together. the amount of talent and creativity in their households must be off the charts. so when i heard from photography (and recipe contributor!) stacy newgent about the engagement party she shot for tom and jess (a graphic designer and architect) i couldn’t resist. i love all the well-designed details and handmade touches. even if your wedding/engagement days are far off or long gone, i love getting party inspiration from events like this. the mounds of flowers piled on a wooden table runner are so, so cool. (and how great is her fishtail braid? brings me right back to elementary school) click here to check out the full set of images on stacy’s site. thanks, stacy!
