Our new office & logo! *Cincinnati Wedding Planner*

What a busy spring we’ve had with so many gorgeous weddings, but right now we have a tiny break, which gives us time to enjoy our new office!

Our team shares the new office with the talented and charming Neysa Ruhl of Belle & Blanc Photography (if you don’t know her- you’re missing out! She’s a doll!).  After a long search for the right space last fall, Neysa & I fell in love with the Oakley area.  And just days before I was due with my second baby girl, Ada, we signed a lease for a completely raw space.  Because we were starting from scratch, we had fun brainstorming our different design and décor ideas.  We decided that “modern rustic” was a great blend of our personal styles. The finished product is perfect for inspiring creativity & (we hope!) making our clients feel at home.  Take a look at these before and after photos!

AFTER!

The natural light, cool gray, warm wood tones, modern furniture, and pops of lively green are designed to make sure guests feel welcome. We hope they will want to stay a while!   Neysa’s inspired photography is displayed throughout the space.

There are several elements about the new office that I really love- here are my top 3 favorite:

The conference room doors!  They are just gorgeous!  Neysa found them for $50 each and refinished them herself. Yup, not only can the girl shoot killer photographs, but she can also strip, sand and stain old doors!  Those doors really make a statement when clients first enter the space. Go Neysa!

Another favorite element has got to be the unique stenciled walls! In my search for the perfect stencil pattern, I fell in love with this one…

AND, I loved it so much that Cindy Loon, of loon+co, & I incorporated it into viva bella’s new logo!

 And I’ve saved the best for last…the Chameleon Chairs in the conference room! White suede with a big flower on the back of the seat…oh my!  We wanted our new conference room to feel like a “cozy living room,” in which our clients would feel comfortable sharing their vision and dreams as we collaborate to create their perfect event!

We hope you enjoyed the tour! Come see us soon!

Our new studio is located at 3218 Madison Rd in Oakley.

Signal P&G – Cincinnati Event Planner

What happens when Silicon Valley giants come to downtown Cincinnati? A full day of thought-provoking content regarding the future digitalization of brand-building and…a lot of fun!

We had the opportunity to partner with Procter & Gamble on this exciting event! Federated Media brought in various digital industry leaders, including Google, Facebook, and Twitter execs. For decor, we planned a decidedly modern ‘tech-y’ vibe. Cool-blue lighting accents, by Vincent Lighting, gave the space a cohesive feel.

About 1,800 attendees, in person and via webcast, were encouraged to bring their phones, laptops, ipads, anything to help them stay connected through out the day. Two screens on either side of the stage displayed a live Twitter feed with #signalpg hashtag tweets. What a great feature!
