Pretty doesn’t even begin to describe what you’re about to feast your eyes on, my dears. Here at Belle The Magazine, when we talk about weddings being all about the details, we mean it wholeheartedly! From the dresses to the flowers to the paper goods, you simply don’t want to miss a thing. So today we are bringing you one of the hottest bridal trends of the year, Celestial Weddings, in the form of an inspired photoshoot. We’ve teamed up with an awesome group of vendors to show you how the right combination of pretty paper details and decor elements can help you make your wedding your own. And oh-boy did we deliver!
A modern bridal look, organic inspired florals and starry-night inspired details are perfectly paired with the stunning wedding stationery and decor elements by The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly! Prepare to fall in love with the beauty captured by Vanessa Anne Photography!
With beautiful blooms, and a tabletop design by Kern Place Florist that will surely make you swoon, this styled soiree truly has it all! Design by yours truly, it’s a perfect mix of boho romance and celestial vibes—and the cake by Tina's Treats of Texas is literally out of this world!
The Paper Goods
Whether it’s coordinating stationery or your very own mix and match sets…nothing feels sweeter than finding designs that you absolutely love! One of my favorite designs from The Wedding Shop is Dazzling Flare, a glamorous and moody style that has the perfect amount of foil for an upscale look. The back of the invite simulated a night sky which made it the perfect fit for our theme.
I wanted the photo shoot to have a little bit of a whimsical feel, yet showcase our signature hint of glamour; so I went with a mix and match look on the stationery adding the breath-taking Elegant Sky suite from The Wedding Shop. From the RSVP cards and the invitations to the thank you notes, address labels and personalized postage stamps, Elegant Sky is the epitome of celestial wedding. The back of most of the elements of this suite showcases a beautiful star map -- with constellations and many other astronomy-related details!
Personalizing all the paper goods for our photoshoot was super easy and fast. My favorite feature when personalizing the invites was the availability of silver and gold envelopes -- you know I love anything metallic! The inside of the envelopes are also very easy to customize. We obviously went with the stars design, but you will be able to find an envelope design that matches your wedding theme.
With The Wedding Shop, you can be sure that the cohesive wedding look you are seeking is being achieved 100% right from start to finish. For many of their beautiful wedding invitations, there are matching reception paper goods like menus, programs and favor stickers that will set your event apart from the rest!
Personalizing your wedding favors will allow for your theme to be present even after your guests leave the reception and go home with a pretty little token of appreciation. Just take a look at our pretty favors! We got the traditional tin can favor boxes from the crafting store and added matching Elegant Sky Stickers. Aren’t they pretty!
The Decor Elements
Did you know that besides offering the most gorgeous of wedding stationery, The Wedding Shop also has a plethora of decor elements for your wedding day? From tabletop and glassware to customized pillows, there are endless opportunities to continue the personalization of your wedding day with Shutterfly.
For instance, for this photoshoot we created this lovely table runner that can be placed on your sweetheart table or signing table. We included constellations and a star map to bring a bigger dose of star inspiration into our cake table. Shutterfly lets you upload any pattern, word phrase or picture(s) you want to create your very own table runners. So whether you want to get going with our celestial theme or you are looking into something classic, you can make it happen with Shutterfly.
For the table number I created a plate using the same star map image from the table runner, which by the way is available for free in the Shutterfly Art Gallery alongside hundreds of designs for any occasion.
Also found on Shutterfly’s Art Gallery, this lovely quote that can be added to any of their decor products. I decided to put it on a couple of pillows! Keep in mind that after your wedding, elements like this pillow, the table runner and the plate, can be incorporated into your home decor and serve as a keepsake of your big day.
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, turned out perfectly. With all the pretty products in hand from The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly we found the coolest venue in town, EPIC Railyard to take the pictures. We borrowed a gorgeous Wilderly Bride wedding gown from our friends at Ella Blu. The talented Heather from Deshea Exclusive helped us out with great hair + makeup… I’m so proud of having this group of talented local vendors as part of this experience!
So needless to say, allow me to suggest that if you are still on the hunt for the perfect wedding stationery, decor products (pillows, table runners, plates, etc) and/or personalized paper goods, The Wedding Shop by Shutterfly 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.
