We were so pleased to be a part of this gorgeous photo shoot that was featured on Munaluchi Bride!  Captured by ArtPhotoSoul, the golden affair added a shimmering glow to the landscape of the beautiful Grove House at Cypress Grove. RW Events coordinated all of the details that created this modern Southern look, from the dazzling cakes by Wendy Woo Cakes to the lush floral work by Windermere Flowers and Gifts.

Gold and white were the main colors of the day, with accents of peach. The tablescape featured traditional elements, such as the white-washed wooden table, mixed with modern pieces, like the acrylic ghost chairs and white leather lounge furniture. This combination of modern and classic Southern looks continued throughout the decor and paper goods.

The invitations and paper goods bore classic typography to match the elegance of the event. We used metallic golden peach ink printed on white paper to coordinate with the color scheme. The envelopes and menu backings were a warm, weathered metallic gold. We kept all of the paper goods clean-looking with few embellishments to create a modern feel.

We were honored to be a part of this gorgeous shoot! Thank you to the following fabulous wedding professionals for all of their contributions:

{Inspiration} Royal Blue and Yellow, 1940s Retro Wedding Shoot

Enjoy a little flashback to our feature last May on Style Me Pretty! Retro Americana was brought back to life in this styled shoot by Wings of Glory, and every little detail is absolutely adorable! Everything about the fashion and decor, coordinated by Vows Wedding and Events, will make you feel as if you’ve stepped into 1940s America.

The props from this shoot were incredible! Coca-cola bottles, mason jars and Volkswagens are only a few of vintage décor used throughout the retro inspired shoot. We loved the use of this World War II era airplane as a backdrop.

This sweetheart neckline strapless dress from Carolyn Allen’s Bridals & Tuxedos was paired with long white gloves and a birdcage veil for an overall classic look. The delphinium bouquet is wrapped in white and blue gingham ribbon, which inspired our designs.

Inside the Danville Bed & Breakfast awaited a dessert table with treats from past centuries. Lollipops, soda pop, bubble gum and marshmallows were some of the sugary staples – topped off with a four tiered white chocolate fountain from RW Chocolate Fountain Rentals.

We created a panel-style invitation using old-school paragraph-form wording (just like they did before printed invites became accessible to everyday folk).  The invitation used a heavy bright white stock with gingham fabric layers and bright yellow printed accents.  It opened to reveal a custom wedding map and wedding weekend information, including where to stay, area activities, and additional wedding-related events.  The mailing envelope was lined with a navy gingham fabric envelope liner.

We continued the use of navy gingham fabric throughout the ceremony and reception papers.  The double-sided fan-style wedding program used the checkered fabric as the mid-layer, with a sunshine yellow grosgrain ribbon tied to the wooden handle. The menus were printed on bright white and layered onto midnight blue and white, with a blue gingham knotted sash, perfect for a picnic-style wedding.

{Inspiration} Romantic and Dramatic Anna Karenina Photo Shoot

Romantic Wedding Photo Shoot

For brides who love literature, the theme of this styled shoot allows them the ability to step right out of a page from Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel and into their fantasy wedding. Along with the amazing talent of Eventrics Weddings, we captured the style of Anna Karenina through the opulent, romantic, and dramatic decor and paper goods. We invite you to flip through pages of a passionate love affair captured by Clearly In Focus Photography. You can also read more in the feature on Fab You Bliss!

We just love this dress by Modern Bridal Shop: the fusion between modern and antique is gorgeous. The bride’s Victorian-inspired accessories really set the tone for the overall look.

Anna Karenina Dress

This birdcage veil is great for the modern bride who wants a break from tradition. Equally bold is the bridesmaid’s tulle-topped hat. It’s risky but we love it! Boldly Unique hand made all of the amazing headpieces for this shoot.

Royal Blue Wedding Invitations by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

 

We think it’s amazing how Eventrics Weddings, with the help of Taylormade Wedding & Event Flowers, created unique centerpieces that somehow looked like they were reaching out from the base in a longing manner, mimicking the everlasting desire the couple shares for each other. George L. Gaines Jeweler provided the heirloom china, silver, and glassware, which transported guests to 1870s Russia. Even the decorative chargers and chiavari chairs provided by Event Source Solutions made for an adventure to the past where etiquette and prestige were the keys to happiness. The details in the heirloom silver add a lavish touch fit for an aristocrat and her count. The ornate detailing can also be seen in the shimmering midnight blue linens with black and silver lace overlay and teacups with proper saucers.

We created all of the invitations and paper goods with an ornate border and aristocratic-looking monogrammed crest. The black and royal blue accents perfect coordinate with the layered, midnight-colored scheme of the shoot.  The invitation is a generously-sized 7.5-inch square mounted on a midnight-blue velvet-covered panel, and delivered in a black box with a printed address wrap.

We can’t over get how these butterflies quietly spread their message! It’s beautiful, creative, and adds a whimsical touch to an escort card display.

{Inspiration} Modern Purple and Green Wedding

Out with the old and in with the new! This green and purple inspired photo shoot at Mission Inn Resort was a modern oasis of bright colors and even bolder prints. Wings of Glory Photography once again did an outstanding job capturing every detail from the baroque prints to the whimsical centerpieces and everything in between. Anna Christine Events coordinated the look to keep it fun, funky, and utterly breathtaking.

It all started with a simple white canvas. From there, the possibilities were endless! The tables were adorned with gorgeous purple damask print table runners to contrast the crisp, white linens. Flowers by Lesley created the floral arrangements and adorned each clear hanging loop of the four foot tall centerpieces with a single orchid, creating a grand and whimsical display. Plush throw pillows complimented the space with bold chevron and classic damask prints in eye-catching green and purple hues. Hitched Event Rentals incorporated their striking white throne chairs along with ottomans and acrylic chiavari chairs.

Creating the stationery for this shoot was perfectly exhilarating! Our stark white invitations sported a pop of color with a compelling green chevron print on the front and splashes of purple damask on the inside.

The escort cards embodied the best of both prints and colors.  After all, why choose one when you can have it all?

The vibrant colors even made their way to the menus. We kept the look modern and precise, being sure to truly indulge in the green chevron print accented by purple text. The menus were accompanied by a sparkling surprise for the guests. Hello Sugar’s fabulous edible glitter-coated, cake-filled Disco Ball favors left everyone beaming with wonder. Trust me, they were just as delicious as they looked! Wendy Woo Cakes was sure to add to the sweet factor with a cake too spectacular to put into words.

{Inspiration} Fresh-Squeezed: A Rustic Lemonade Stand Wedding

Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Wing of Glory Photography, Lemonade stand, bride and groom

Imagine a simpler time, spending a sunny afternoon sharing crisp cool lemonade. Childhood pastimes, like a lemonade stand, can be great inspiration for a memorable wedding.

The charm of this vintage-tinged daydream was captured by the Wings of Glory photo team and brought to life by the coordination of Vows Wedding & Event Planning. We had a wonderful time squeezing gallons of romance and joy into the invitations and paper goods that we created for this lemonade stand-inspired photoshoot.

These amazing photos capture the couple’s warm love and the effortless setting of the shoot.

The talented team at Bring out the Beauty in You enhanced the bride’s natural beauty to go along with this youthful theme. Her sun-kissed look was perfect with the glowing afternoon light!

Our paper goods were designed in yellow, blush pink, and gray, with a combination of stripes and lattice. The invitations used a layer of yellow striped seersucker fabric, were wrapped with cotton twine strung with an adorable yellow button, and encased in a custom-sewn burlap envelope. The hang tag-shaped menu cards reflected the decor’s rustic farm style, and had an added detail of jute twine.

The escort cards were displayed on a distressed yellow dresser with a backdrop of burlap streamers, adding to the rustic flavor. A yellow polka-dot border encircled each antique-style typeset number, and we backed the round cut-outs with burlap.

We absolutely loved how effortless our table numbers looked amongst the white flowers, which the Flower Lady casually placed in mason jars. Sprigs of lavender and sliced lemon accents were just slivers of the amazing details.

The lemon fresh inspiration was carried through with some delicious sweet treats. The dessert buffet included pink lemonade-colored popcorn, pink and yellow rock candy, soft pastel French macarons, and a breathtaking cake creation by Wendy Woo Cakes.

The furniture and design details by RW Events created an authentic atmosphere of a stylishly vintage farm.  The head table was set with mismatched chairs. We love the way our playful custom chair signs turned out: “He’s mine” and “She’s mine,” in case guests had any doubt! Our drink tags, below, continued the burlap motif seen on the rest of the paper goods. What a cute way to send your guests a loving message!
