Couture Events and Elle Bridal Boutique Founder Krystel Tien tells us about things that make her workspace her own:

My mini pink polaroid camera. When styling wedding looks the polaroids help me remember and see the looks I have created all together without having to scroll through my phone.

An acrylic and gold Kate Spade stapler – practical and pretty.

A Kate Spade acrylic penholder, filled with Pilot G-2 .07 black pens. These are my favorite pens to make lists, journal, and do business with. I also have a Blush Pearl Swarovski crystal pen that was a gift from a bride (who worked at Swarovski) that we now have our brides sign contracts with – it’s pretty and makes for a super exciting and special moment.

A Vintage Telephone Notepad from Rifle Paper. We believe in wonderful customer service and while we could take appointments online, we prefer to get to know the bride a bit before she comes in. So we use the good old-fashioned telephone and take notes on our telephone pad about our lovely bride.

We sell the Illume candles at our boutique. Smells make a difference to me – when life smells good, I feel like I get more done. The Coconut Milk Mango scent is often burning in my office.

And my office would not be complete without… The lovely coordinators and stylists in it! We have an incredible team, and they make the office a home.
