Speaker Bio: Youngsong Martin

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Youngsong Martin, owner of Wildflower Linens, has created a new standard for tabletop and event design. A former fashion designer, Young infuses her linen collections with rich colors, textures and patterns. Ultimately Young and Wildflower linens have made table design haute. Her collections are released several times a year and mirror couture trends from Milan, Paris and New York. Additionally, trips to China, France and Italy clearly keep Young on the cutting edge of today's looks and tomorrow's trends. Young also works with top designers around the country, including Preston Bailey of Preston Bailey Designs.

Her unique and drop dead gorgeous linens and tabletop designs have been featured on ABC's Extreme Weddings and TBS's Movie and a Makeover and WE'S Platinum Weddings. In magazines such as Grace Ormonde Weddings, Bride and Bloom, Today's Bride, Wedding Bells, Special Events Magazine, Your Wedding Day Magazine, and The Orange County Register. Not to mention the wedding blog circuit including Junebug Weddings, The Flirty Guide and WellWed.

We are very excited that Young will be presenting on a panel at The Academy, along with Grace Ormonde, Catherine Hall, and Gene Higa. This powerful team will be discussing the important relationship between a designer, a photographer, and an editor. How can this dynamic team work together effectively to produce images worthy of being published? In addition, they will be sharing insights and tips on creating amazing photoshoots to be published. This is a very unique opportunity to hear such a dynamic team speak together on this topic.

Here is a sample of Young's beautiful work that was recently featured in Grace Ormonde's Wedding Style Magazine:
