The result blew.my.mind. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING turned out perfectly. We found the coolest venue in town, Epic Rail Yard to take the pictures. Fiori the Flower Studio blew it out of the water (as always) with the most perfect decor items and stunning florals. We borrowed a gorgeous Allure Bridals gown and headpiece from Ella Blu. My friends at Bazaar Models sent us stunning Lauren to be the bride for the photoshoot and help us out with great hair + make-up. And lastly, Cristina Navarro just did such an amazing job capturing the beauty from every element… I’m so proud of having this group of talented local vendors as part of this experience!
Pretty doesn't even begin to describe what you're about to feast your eyes on, my dears. When we talk about weddings being all about the details here at Belle The Magazine, we mean it wholeheartedly! From the dress to the flowers to the paper goods, you simply don't want to miss a thing. Whether it is a place card to welcome your guest or a favor tag to send your wedding guest home…nothing feels sweeter than finding a design that you absolutely love! So we've teamed up with an awesome group of vendors to create an inspirations shoot to show you how the right combination of pretty paper details can help you make your wedding your own. And oh-boy did we deliver!
When it comes to wedding stationery, it’s very important to find a paper goods company that has friendly customer service and loves working on special requests—which we seriously needed for this project!
For the photo shoot I wanted to create something utterly-romantic + elegant so I went with the breath-taking Night Blossoms suite showcased on the Wedding Paper Divas 2014 Look Book. The lush florals and lavish hues on the front are the perfect fit for a grand love story, while the black and white striped pattern on the back brings a touch of timeless elegance. Like every suite from WPD, Night Blossoms is a really comprehensive collection of gorgeous paper elements that will help couples carry their design and colors across every detail of their wedding day; from your ‘Save to the Date' to your ‘Thank You' card.
For our inspirational shoot we opted for Night Blossoms’ menu cards, place cards and table numbers in black and on Pearl White Shimmer paper. The place cards and table numbers carry the beautiful floral pattern all across the design and they are imprintables, which means you can have them print or calligraphed to your choice. How cool is that? The menu cards have their own charm, too. They showcase the luscious florals on the front and black + white stripes on the back—such a beautiful way to add character to your place settings. We had lots of fun mixing the patterns, as you can see!
For the favor boxes, I chose gift tags from another suite, Effervescent Sparkle. The pale pink colors and the gold glittery details brought a chic-feminine feel to the table top…. Another great advantage of the Wedding Paper Divas designs is the ability to mix and match. Love!
So needless to say, allow me to suggest that if you are still in the hunt for the perfect wedding stationery, Wedding Paper Divas has a collection that is sure to impress. With countless personalization options including multiple color choices and a gorgeous array of fonts, you're sure to find exactly what you need. They have recently launched a set of customizable coasters that we adore and you have to see. I personally think “Stunning Flourish” would have been a great addition to our shoot. What do you think?
I hope you all enjoy this Romantic Wedding Shoot as much as we all enjoyed putting it together and seeing it come to life. Hope it inspires you today! And don’t forget to head to Wedding Paper Divas website to find the style for your wedding story come to life. Trust me, they don’t call them divas for nothing!
