Scholarship Winner Selected!!

Friday, December 11, 2009

It has been a really fun project for us to go over all 14 different creative entries for the scholarship contest. Thank you so much to each of you who participated, as your creativity and different perspectives were very interesting and inspiring to us.

After much deliberation between our design team, we have selected a winner!

CONGRATULATIONS to Yelena Johnson of The Stylish Soiree

What our lead designer, Gloria Wong of Gloria Wong Design loved most about Yelena's entry:

-Yelena chose a tasteful blend of design textures to communicate the meeting of the bride and groom's worlds. The combination of wood, crystal, silk, metal and burlap for one wedding offered a good deal of design mileage. I loved the juxtaposition of the distressed wooden pews with the calligraphed silk pillows for the ceremony and the wooden tables dressed with crystal perfume bottles as floral containers. What amazing visuals!!!
- Yelena's restrained color palette was also perfect for the upscale bride and her groom.
- Yelena was able to express the union of these two opposites in a very effortless manner. Nothing seemed too contrived, yet all the ideas were very unique. This was fantastic!!

Thank you again to everyone that participated, and we hope to see all of you in March!
