To kick off wedding season, Genevieve Renee and I collaborated on an inspiration shoot to encourage brides to create something unique, personal and handmade for their wedding ceremony. We kept the backdrop inspiration sweet and simple, and landed on three original ideas that ended up representing something old, something borrowed and something blue.
The ‘something old’ backdrop arose from an idea to use the outside of an old church as the setting for a ceremony. For a modern yet whimsical twist, we added jumbo balloons adorned with mixed lace accents and anchored with white ceramic bookends.
The ‘something borrowed’ backdrop was inspired by the simplicity and beauty of nature. We borrowed tree branches straight from the forest floor and built an archway, securing the branches together with fishing line. We handcrafted faux flowers using post-consumer recycled cream-colored paper for an added charming touch.
And finally, the ‘something blue’ backdrop came from our attraction to stately patterns and colors. A bold fabric choice and a giant antique frame was all it took to create this unique focal point for a beautiful indoor or outdoor ceremony.
I loved designing and styling this shoot, plus... it was featured on the lovely blog, Wedding Obsession. Pink & Honey's first official published project! Hooray! Head on over to see more photos from the shoot.
I wish to brighten your day with a little inspiration. Inspiration to try something new. Inspiration to find joy in cooking and crafting, entertaining and styling, writing and sharing. I’m Alexandra Joy and I have many joys to share.
