Oct22 Luminous Portrait & Elizabeth Messina 2012

Today we are celebrating the launch of the latest issue of The Knot magazine with the cover shot by our dear friend Elizabeth Messina. We thought we’d spread the love, so we’re featuring a little bit more of Elizabeth Messina over here on the blog today! We adored her launch party of her newest book, The Luminous Portrait, which if I do say so myself, is a spectacular coffee table book. Elizabeth’s artwork is absolutely breathtaking so getting the chance to have a little piece of it in your home is a total delight.

In addition to Elizabeth, the floral designer whose work is on the cover of The Knot magazine also took part in making this launch party gorgeous! Isn’t it lovely how everything connects? We hope you enjoy all of these images shot by Kirsten Ellis.
