Kim @ Inspired Goodness's Picture
Kimberly Canale, Brooklyn, NY Vendor: Event Designer Website: Inspired Goodness About Me: From the moment the engagement ring was slipped onto my finger, I've been in love with all-things-wedding. I still get teary eyed reading proposal stories in magazines and love sneaking a peek at a bride and groom glancing at one another for the first time, as the ceremony is about to begin. With each of my clients, I get to know their personality, family background and hear the story of how they met and fell in love. Each piece becomes another element from which I use to build the overall vision for their wedding day. As the Creative Director at Inspired Goodness, my job is to create the various details that makes each of our weddings come to life. My work incorporates classic elements; engraving, hand calligraphy and vintage typography. Using a mix of found objects and flea market pieces lends a rich history to my work and challenges me to find creative ways to use mass-produced elements, each with a chic and timeless result. With every new client, I get to explore avenues I've yet to pass and love knowing that the next adventure is just around the corner!

Behind the Scenes

August 21st, 2009 @ 4:52 pm by Kim @ Inspired Goodness

On my blog, I love doing “behind the scenes” posts. It shows sneak peeks about what the IG team is working on.

You may remember the post I did about the Family Tree Envelope Liners and the Etched Mirror, well, these photos are from our staff at that same wedding. Since everything happened surrounding a master time-line, here’s a step-by-step of how the day progressed:

10:00 AM: Leave Brooklyn to pickup van @ UHAUL


John driving us to the rental depot

11:20 AM: Load van with lots of boxes!

12:00 PM: Leave IG Headquarters and Head-up to The Central Park Boathouse.


Top to bottom: Mrs. Cupcake and I took the van and the boy’s take the train to Central Park.
Me looking very excited that the weather is gorgeous and ready to get moving.

2:00 PM: The van is unloaded and the IG Team Arrives.


From L to R: Me, John, Jillian, Dave, Mrs. Cupcake [Brooke], Mr. Cupcake [Nick] and Stephanie

2:00 - 2:45PM: Everyone is given their projects for the day and the installation begins.


From L to R: Nick is in charge of setting up the postcard racks. These will hold the escort cards.
The girls help me alphabetize the escort cards.


John and Dave start decorating the entrance with lots of draped crystals and quilted mason jars.

3:00 PM: The rentals and florist arrive on-site


All hands were on deck to get the 22 tables covered with the violet tablecloths and the chairs unloaded from the truck.


The Ovando team placed their arrangements on 22″ mirrors we provided as the center for each tablescape. The floral arrangements consisted of these amazingly huge dahlias, the pink ones are called Cafe Au Lait. Their massive size was great for the large room.

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM: The guys are making good progress on the entry-way.


From L to R: John looking good in his cute Inspired Goodness apron. Nick organizing the crystal strands. Dave working on getting the look just right. The center fixture is up and the hanging mason jars start to be incorporated.

Meanwhile, the girls are….


From L to R: Centerpiece elements are placed on top of each mirror and postcard style table numbers are displayed in acrylic holders. The guest book table is setup and Stephanie places the escort cards into the right slot in each rack - the front of each card shows what table the guests are seated


From L to R: The cigar roller is coming during the cocktail hour and we’ve setup our display of custom matchbooks and cigar labels. (More on these in a later post!!) Everyone helps distribute colored votives throughout the cocktail area. Brooke is in charge of decorating the bride and groom’s chairs.

5:45 PM: The candles are lit and everything begins to take shape.


From L to R: Brooke and John lighting all the table candles. The glow from the reflecting mirror really lights up the room. John and Dave are getting the entryway finalized. The final table setup ready for guests!

6:00 PM: We’re complete with the installation a little early, we head over to the bar for a quick toast


From L to R: The Cupcakes. The view of the lake from inside the cafe was so beautiful!!

6:55 PM: Guests arrive and the bride and groom get to see the finished space!


The very glamorous (and just married) Shira and Loren with moi!
