If you love quotes as much as I do, but don’t know how to integrate them into your wedding decor, you’re in for a huge treat today. This styled shoot features one of my favorite C.S. Lewis quotes seamlessly integrated into various details including a beautiful hand lettered table runner and hand stamped silverware. But that’s just the beginning. From the wild flowers to all the vintage details–everything about this elopement inspiration was so unique and unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
A huge shout out goes to A Pretty Affair, Crystal Bolin Photography and the rest of the vendors who collaborated to pull together this stunning vision. Here they are to tell us a little more about their inspiration.
“Each element of this shoot is near and dear to our hearts, starting with the spectacular table runner script, hand-written by the very talented Corey of InkLetterLove. This quote, by C.S.Lewis is a favorite particularly because it signifies beginnings. And that’s exactly what that day was about. Corey also wowed us by making our place cards from marble tiles and adorned them with liquid gold writing.”
We couldn’t possibly finish this amazing table with just any floral or plated decor. Jenny from Port And Palm Co did something divine by truly speaking to our vision and filling beautiful diamond glass vases with colors of autumn shining through out. Not to mention the breathtaking wildflowers that joined the party. Blushing brides and ranunculus were kissing the glassware and vintage plating she blessed us with.
Nikki Parker Designs added just the final touch we did need. Their love for hand stamping vintage silverware truly speaks to us. Each piece was carefully created and stamped to tell a story of its own. And that’s a detail we could not have gone without.
New age mixed with vintage is something we don’t see often because they’re so different from each other. But the harmonious fusion it becomes is magical. The old rustic table and absolutely gorgeous seats were provided by TrueLoveVintage. Both pieces, over 40 years old, have stood the test of time and remained almost flawless, just as love does every day.
Last but not least, Crystal Bolin Photography brought our vision to life by capturing the love and detail through her lens. Her extraordinary way of finding the perfect light or shade to allow everything to just radiate in its own form is a talent most photographers do not possess. Each shot perfectly captured the magic that took place that day. We hope you can feel the love from the wood to the silverware, running through the ink and up each petal and beaming through the love on our couple’s faces. Cheers to the butterflies, Mikaela and PerlaWedding + Event planners of A Pretty Affair
