flowers • one of the top and (favored) elements we rely on to help illustrate our design story in every event. I will never stop emphasizing how important it is to book a florist for your wedding day—they are key to have in every wedding event set up. 
Between the installs, special last minute touches, and even clean ups I witness, the more thankful I am for florists. My appreciation for all the vendors on wedding day is already so high, but every wedding, each vendor shows me it can still continue to grow more than I thought was possible. Thank you to all the hard working vendors who show up, present their beautiful hard work + install even more in the summer heat and then some! Your hard work to assist in our design story 
never goes unnoticed & we are internally grateful ✨

“We want our sweet table to stand out” | this constant request is something we personally favor with our clients. You will typically find the bride and groom’s table highlighted by strategic elements in our design. Take this photo for example: An illusion table (a custom blush lace sheer linen draped over a farm table) topped off with puddled floor length floral garland + paired with two stunningly matching velvet chairs located front and center at reception makes it fully impossible to go unnoticed.

There are many ways to make your table stand out and we can’t wait to show you more... like what we have planned for our sweet couple on July 28! Stay tuned - behind the scenes footage will be happening ✨

Oh sunshine, how we pray for you to show your  face on every wedding day, but sometimes you can get a little too hot and what do we do to solve it? We umbrella it! Having umbrellas at any part of your event can make it even more festive and weather friendly for your guests! We love adding them to our designs and we think they are the perfect game changer for hot summer days!

When you style a featured stylist/artist in the triad...the creativity, originality and inspiration is unexplainable ! @kellyhovisart can truly transform any blank space into the most favored space instantly with her work—plus, pairing with @moonlightfurniturerenewal under it makes it shine even more! We are all about supporting love in many ways, especially in local businesses in the triad! Lucky you these two will be attending the @vintagemarketdaysnctriangle in May!

“Ever thine, Ever mine, Ever ours “
#beethoven -when trying to choose what love letter to have @calligraphybycarole write for a styled boudoir with @lindleybattlephotography—this one instantly came to mind & I didn’t even have to look it up 😉 (all thanks to #mrbig ...oh and Beethoven himself of course ☺️) #beethoven #everours #loveletter #whitewren #boudoir #boudoirinspiration #fineartboudoir #fineartphotography #fineartcalligraphy #marlalawsonevents #thatsmarla #styling #inventivedesign #allinthedetails  #intimatephotography

Hello lovelies— if you have been following my feed from day 1 , then you know my #fridayintroductions are far overdue! 
My name is Marla , the owner and inventive designer of Marla Lawson Events. 
3 things about me—
1. One ingredient that is always in my fridge is lemons! They are always my go to ingredient! From topping off my famous creamy lemon pasta sauce or when used as a last minute ingredient for a bread dipping, It’s a must at my home! 
2. In another life, I would be living by the beach. The beach is the most calming place on earth to me. I find myself fully at peace when I go. So...if you can’t find me, you might want to start looking near palm trees and salt water. 
3. Throughout my posts, comments and instastories you may of noticed my most famous two words — “OH MY” ! This saying was taken from my mother & grandmother and I can’t help but say it (even my two toddlers have caught the famous phrase bug ☺️) . You may have even spotted this phrase through one of my emails, but if you have heard me shout it—more than likely something stunning has grabbed my attention ! 
Now—a little #BTS in this photo: “ Marla, stop what your doing and strike a pose” -LB . I was recently told to stop styling and casually strike a pose for a new headshot during a styled shoot this month with @lindleybattlephotography and... I loved it! So many times I find myself hustling so hard BTS during a shoot or wedding day set up, I sometimes forget to stop and capture it. What can I say, when I’m in #marlalawsonevents mode, I can’t help myself— but moments like this for example, I owe all to some amazingly talented photographers, who have made me stop in the moment to capture my process. They know I’m hustling hard not only for my clients but for all the vendors involved in any event! "My hustle", the #marlalawsonevents hustle is the inventive design: the styling of intentional details, the making use of every minute in order for clients to truly have their perfect day and the meaningful accents purposefully placed for their guests to enjoy. 
For all of you who has captured my timeless hard work, THANK YOU! 
Cheers to the weekend and we hope we inspire you along the way!
I may be a tad late with this post, but when your sister-in-law of officially one year ago takes wedding photos like this—you have to share! 
She defines T I M E L E S S  B E A U T Y.
