STARRY NIGHT INSPIRED STYLED SHOOT

Submitted by  Love, Laughter & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning

What was your design inspiration?

I have long wanted to do a starry night theme. Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting plays well along with this. The mood was to be ethereal, light, sparkling and romantic. A little bit of heaven on earth, if you will.

Describe your flowers.

I wanted to use a mostly white floral scheme, with a hint of blue and silver. My florist created lush, gorgeous bouquets and a centerpiece featuring white anemone, white hydrangea, scabiosa, waxflower, white veronica, dusty miller, and peonies. The flowers were a bright contrast against the navy and silver table linens and formal dresses. The flowers were also to be reminiscent of groups of stars.

Describe your cake.

The cake that Gearhart Custom Cakes created is absolutely gorgeous! It is a four-tier cake, with the bottom layer hand painted in silver.  The top 3 tiers are covered in sparkling navy blue edible glitter. Each tier is defined by a band of bling. The topper is a custom acrylic piece made especially for this project, to finish the cake beautifully.

Tell us about your attire choices.

The attire for this styled shoot was so glamorous! The bridal gown and starry overskirt were custom-made for this shoot by Nidel Dresses in Louisiana. It is a modified trumpet gown with a strapless, sweetheart neckline, and corset back. The removable overskirt features a jeweled belt, and layers of starry fabric. Light and flowy, and simply gorgeous! The cathedral length ombre blue bridal veil was from Over the Moon Bridal in Washington state. The dark blue bridesmaid gown was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs in Hartville, Ohio. The designer is Madeline Gardner for Mori Lee. It is a floor length gown with allover lace and sequins. Very sparkly!

The gentlemen wore stylish suits of their own. The groom’s dark blue tie, pocket square, and pocket watch were all provided by Groomsday. The groomsman’s silver bow tie was provided by Doreen Leaf Designs.

Describe any handmade, DIY or personal items.

The jewelry provided by LivyLynn Vintage is handmade and very unique. Their collection is eclectic and matched our bride’s fun-loving personality.

The dark blue gauze table runner on the outdoor tablescape was custom made and hand-dyed especially for this shoot by Thistle and Twill. There are little white flecks in the material of the runner, that are reminiscent of stars twinkling in the night sky.

Describe the tablescape elements.

We had three tablescapes for this shoot:

The indoor tablescape was created on the 200-year old dining table and chairs, which are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate. We used the navy blue satin tablecloth and napkins, and the navy diamond overlay, from L’nique Linens. The silver luxe charger plates are also from L’nique Linens. The china, silverware, and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The floral centerpiece was created by Alyssa Schlegel, and we used the gold cake topper from Ever Laser to complete the look. The favors are blue and silver wrapped Hershey’s Kisses, placed in small tulle gift bags printed with silver stars.

The cake table was located in the formal parlor of Spring Hill. The table was covered in the navy blue satin tablecloth and the silver medallion sheer overlay from L’nique Linens. The gorgeous four-tier navy blue and silver cake was provided by Gearhart Custom Cakes. The silver mirrored acrylic cake topper was made by Traditions Engraving. We also placed blue and silver star-shaped votive candles around the table for extra sparkle.

The third tablescape was placed outdoors on the terraced lawn of the Spring Hill home. Dining al fresco under the stars was the order of the evening for our couples. The table was draped in navy blue satin, with a silver sequin table runner and navy blue napkins. The china, silverware and crystal are all part of the Spring Hill estate. The centerpiece is the same one that was used on the indoor tablescape. We changed out the cake topper to a different silver one created by Traditions Engraving, The heavy pewter candlesticks were added to provide illumination into the evening hours.

‘Summer of Love’ – Fun 1960s Garden Wedding Inspiration

IMAGINE IT PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we’re going back to the swinging sixties – fitting really given the news today 🙁 – with a charming garden wedding inspiration shoot full of mod fashion, daisies (one of my favourite flowers) and super sweet details; all in a vibrant palette of white, yellow and green that screams Summer……

1960s Inspired Summer Daisy Wedding

“Welcome to the Summer of Love!  The 1960’s were such a cool era.  I love Mod looks, the glamorous hair and makeup, and the groovy fashions.  I also love bright colors and flowers.  Daisies were the perfect fit for this sweet little styled shoot, they are such cheerful and hearty flowers. I decided to use a bright yellow and white color scheme to bring it all together.  The overall look is fresh and light, perfect for summer!

We used two different bouquets.  One is a brooch bouquet of daisies, created especially for this shoot by Susie Kays Design.  The bridal bouquet was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and small fillers.  The bridesmaid bouquet was a mix of daisies.  The table centerpiece was a mix of daisies, hydrangea, and fillers in a rustic teapot, set upon a vintage cake stand.

The cake by Cake Wasted was a beautiful three tier confection of perfection!  The bottom tier was hexagon shaped, covered in yellow fondant frosting and a delicate white geometric pattern.  The top two round tiers were covered in creamy white fondant frosting, and adorned with a cascade of handcrafted daisy blooms.  The golden cake topper, provided by Everlaser, read “I love your sunny funny face.”  It was a cute nod to one of my favorite actresses, Audrey Hepburn, and complemented the bright yellow color scheme of the shoot.

I wanted vintage attire for this shoot.  I chose an elegant, long sleeved cream gown, which featured a woven cream and gold top, and a wide gold belt, which looked amazing on Lauren.  On our bridesmaid model, Sammy, I chose a flirty sundress in light yellow with an overall polka dot design. We accessorised with a pale yellow birdcage veil, and short vintage gloves. On our groom Brandon, we kept a clean, classic look with a button down shirt, pastel bow tie and suspenders.  On Lauren’s adorable daughter Addie, we chose a light yellow shantung dress with a simple white organza overlay skirt that had a few floral appliques.

Our tablescape was an eclectic mix of items.  The lemon yellow satin tablecloth was topped by a daisy print runner, handmade by Laurie Wallick of Lorili Design.  We used beaded glass charger plates, white dinner plates with a basket weave detail, and smaller dessert plates with hand painted daisies on them.  Glassware was a combination of vintage green cut glass goblets, and small champagne flutes.  The matching napkins and napkin rings were also made by Laurie Wallick.  The centerpiece was placed on a vintage white cake stand.”

Our Vibrant Country Villa shoot is featured on the Southern Celebrations Blog!!

In December of 2017, Southern Celebrations Magazine announced a Creative Challenge.  Those interested were to design a styled photo shoot, featuring one or more of Pantone’s Spring 2018 Top Twelve Colors.  The photo shoot had to feature several styled vignettes, including a tablescape, cake/dessert table, and fashion.  The winners of the Challenge would be featured on the blog and in the upcoming Volume 7 of the magazine. We answered the Challenge!  

On Sunday, February 4th, 2018, my team of very talented vendors and models gathered at the Sunset Vista Ranch, LLC.  The results of our Vibrant Country Villa styled bridal photo shoot were absolutely amazing!  Our team’s collaboration was one of the top 3, chosen from over 70 entries!  We are very excited to share the blog post from Southern Celebrations with you!  Enjoy!

Audrey Hepburn – Funny Face Inspiration Board

Image may contain: 1 person(Disclaimer:  Pictures are not my work, just inspiration. )

I love, love, love the movie “Funny Face”, with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire!  It was the perfect combination of story, song, dance, and fashion!  The fact that the majority of the story took place in Paris, France, just adds to the charm of the movie.  The scenery was amazing.  I highly recommend that you view it sometime! 

This is my take on a wedding inspired by this iconic cinematic masterpiece.  I would love to create this for a couple, or even a styled photo shoot.  If anyone would like to work on this with me, please feel free to send me a message!

Enjoy!
