Midway Contemporary Art Benefit Art Auction Sneak Peek

Today we are beginning to set up for the magic that is Midway Contemporary Art's Annual Art Auction Benefit event. Titled The Judgement of Paris, this 7th Annual event for them will be held on Friday, April 29th, 2011 at the totally cool and slightly creepy Theatre de la Jeune Lune. We scoped out the cavernous space weeks ago, and immediately climbed for the rafters (into which we are now no longer allowed to go). We can't wait to suspend "cool shit" and help to transform this amazing and underused space in the Warehouse District. Here are a few pics from our first mission:

Ours is the Orange One. 'Nuff Said.


Here's a sneak peek of our installation for Minneapolis Institute of Arts ART IN BLOOM. Suffice it to say, ours is the orange one. The event starts Thursday, April 28th and runs through Sunday, May 1st.    

Up Early for Mpls/St. Paul Magazine Weddings

We started the day early this morning, preparing bouquets for a photo shoot for Weddings | Mpls/St. Paul Magazine. They asked for hot and bright, and we gave them just that -- a vibrant yellow and a shocking fuchsia bridal bouquet. Were mohair and wax dipped succulents involved? Well, you'll just have to wait and see.

Blizzard Wedding: Nothing Short of Epic.

Hooray! Finally on this beautiful spring day we have jolly images for you from a technicolor winter wedding during the biggest snowstorm of the year (18 inches in one day!) A testament to the toughness, flexibility and devotion of their friends, families (and vendors!), Debra and Alex literally had wedding guests shovel their driveways with cookie sheets (!!!) to make it to their wedding. The one thing Debra kept repeating during our meetings was that they wanted it to be "fun". And it was. When we came back to tear down after their event, they were still dancing up a storm to an amazeballs band. We ran into old clients and friends, met new clients, and were SO warmly received by everyone involved. It was one of those nights we felt so lucky to get to do what we do.

A brilliant team of people worked on this event including Amy Zaroff Events + Design, the staff at The Depot, and of course Red Ribbon Studio, who captured the vibrant and joyful images you've seen here. For even more of their images of this event, click here.
