Romantic & Soft Wedding Inspiration

We are delighted that today a recent shoot of ours is being featured on

When planning this shoot, we knew that we wanted it be romantic, but still have a soft, natural feel. We chose a beautiful open space park and complemented the location with a number of scenes designed to evoke casual, elegant romance. With our location in mind, we selected green, lavender, blush pink and touches of gold to complement the other elements of the shoot. The whiskey-barrel cake table was set with simple buttercream cakes subtly decorated with fresh flowers and fruit. For favors, were small bread loafs were tied with a delicate lace ribbon and presented on a bed of lavender buds offering a variety of texture, taste, and smell.

 For the table scene, we loved the look of mismatched vintage china flanked by vintage silver flatware. The flowers were soft, romantic and beautiful without being overbearing. For those looking to toast the bride and groom, we built a champagne toasting station complete with beautiful bottles, a vintage bar cart and a sprig of lavender in each flute. Throughout the shoot, there are vintage love letters and small touches designed to serve as subtle reminders that love is timeless.

 For the hair, there were a few different looks:  We started off with a modern Gatsby retro wave which is very on trend for this wedding season.  Next is something that is here to stay, the fairy tale, braided headband.  This look is romantic, innocent & soft.  Finally, we finished with an unconventional wedding upstyle for the fashion forward bride.  Either embellished with fresh flowers or a decorative heirloom comb, this look is a showstopper.

For the invitations, we couldn’t decide on just one so we did a few.

The rustic love note inspired wedding invitations are inspired by vintage love letters (which compliments the love letters in the shoot). This invitation blends cursive and typewriter fonts for a bold typographical approach on a rustic-textured paper. The main invitation, with an elongated tea-length design, melts your heart with a beautiful quote about love and relationships on the backside. The response postcard has space on the front for a love note, giving the bride and groom a wonderful keepsake to cherish long after the wedding is over. The elegantly layered blush is layered on Kraft paper, this wedding invitation is romantic and feminine. Lastly, the  natural hand drawn kraft wedding invitation is simple and vintage-inspired wedding invitation is purely typographical with a strong hand drawn approach on Kraft paper.
