The sign of a truly talented vendor is when he or she can take a seemingly mundane object and turn it into a stunning piece of decor. Brooklyn-based David Stark, creative director of David Stark Design & Production, is definitely one of those talents—he's used everything from Benjamin Moore paint strips to shredded office paper in his fabulously inventive designs.

His latest display of genius: For a recent wedding in Maine, he re-purposed a nearby pile of logs destined for the fireplace as party decor, stacking them to make a giant backdrop for the band. After the wedding, they went back to their original role as firewood. The effect was rustic but chic—so cool. Check out more photos from the wedding at —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
