What happens when a group of top-notch wedding industry vendors get together and throw a party? Well, naturally a spectacular party. Event planners Michelle Soll of Burlap & Brooches and Sara Fried of Fête Nashville approached Design in August to join forces with other area vendors and create an event that would feature downtown Nashville’s newest enclosed all-weather event space. The space itself is not new – Sambuca is a lively restaurant and bar that features live music every night and along with a scrumptious menu. But Sambuca only recently enclosed their Sky Loft, which now makes it a year-round event space with an urban vibe and primo view of downtown Nashville.
Design in August provided the logo and paper designs to coordinate with a pre-set color scheme of candy apple red, citron and charcoal gray. What began as a staged photoshoot to capture the space and vendor talent (by the keen eye of Gregory Byerline), later turned into an industry party open to 150+ guests! The flowers, the linens, the food and fun all came together beautifully.
Leap in the City program and appetizer menu.
Cocktail stir sticks added a fun pop to the apple Leap-tinis. Yum! While place cards and buffet menus dressed up the tablescapes.
And finally, here are the guilty parties, er… vendors that teamed up to make Leap in the City possible. Thanks again to Michelle and Sara for inviting Design in August to participate, and Dana Patel at Sambuca for setting the stage! Hop on over to photog Gregory Byerline’s blog for a fantastic write up featuring even more event and vendor details.
