Just like the good omen of a horseshoe, Grecia Binder, director and founder of GB Weddings & Events, struck luck in pulling off an installation inspired by Galway Downs at our Engaged event this month. (Full disclosure: We have a hunch it was her total creative talent that guided the way.)
Here, she shares the must-have elements to replicate the rustic meets romantic result, the most challenging facets of doing it herself, plus what parts she wishes she could bottle up and take home.
What were some of the details you had to incorporate to bring Galway Downs to life?
We brought in elements of the stable, like the horse shoes on the napkins and horseshoe arch, as well as the rustic details from the barn.
What was the most challenging part of styling this?
Collaboration is always tough, but, down the road, you always come together to present what each vendor has to offer.
What’s your favorite vignette from this installation?
The beautiful floral arrangements and the blue goblets. The marigold and that shade of blue go really well together!
