Orchestrated Stylized Shoots: Union

We all know I'm a total literary nerd. If you follow me on Goodreads, you know I inhale books and can find pleasure in just about any genre, no matter how lengthy, or honestly, how lame. I'll read just about anything. It's one of the few ways I can successfully disconnect from my to-do list and completely lose myself in something mindless and not task-oriented.

All that being said, when Chelsea told me that there was a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house right here in Virginia Beach, I just about fell over. In just the past year, I read one of the best books I've seen in awhile, and one that came to my lap quite unannounced and unexpected. Loving Frank by Nancy Horan was a book that surprised me, broke my heart, challenged me and ultimately instilled in me a great admiration for the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. So, when Union was born, I was more than a bit giddy to know we were going to be at the Cooke House, right here in Virginia Beach, connecting intimately with the legacy and design of one of America's greatest contributors to the architectural world.

As usual, our participating vendors, led by the vision and styling of Isha Foss Events, far exceeded our expectations and brought new life to a classic design that in true Frank Lloyd Wright form, paid homage to his craving for linear and geometric design, while also brandishing a seamless fit with the surrounding nature. And while we tucked ourselves away in a still mostly unknown little pocket built into the side of a sand dune, we went back in time and found ourselves wholly immersed in his design and inspiration.
