Spring Wedding Inspiration with Wedding Paper Divas

Spring is here but it has been a bit shy so I thought I would throw it back to a warmer, more colorful time when Ruffled Blog asked us to create a styled shoot using an invitation suite from Wedding Paper Divas as our inspiration.

Naturally, I assembled a dream team including Christina Lilly Photography, Flora + Fauna, Mary Kate Moon and Dovetail Vintage Rentals and we got to work! Save the Dates and invitations are among the first details that you choose for your wedding and you want to make sure the rest of the design is cohesive and compliments these elements.  Below is the invitation suite that sparked the color palette and details and only strengthened my love for watercolor.

We loved the idea of creating a very vibrant, colorful tablescape and incorporating that gold banner detail in our paper goods.  One of my favorite little details were the little baguettes tied in striped napkins and an overflowing runner of flowers, bud vases and candles making for a cheerful focal point.

The location for this shoot was one of the beautiful parks in the Monmouth County Parks System, Historic Walnford in Allentown, New Jersey.  This venue provided some unique opportunities for portraits of our bride and groom with these pretty backdrops. These photos are some of my favorites!

Although we absolutely love the popular color palette of white, blush and greenery, it sure was fun to create floral arrangements bursting with color.

Mary Kate Moon was able to bring my paper good dreams to life with these sweet chairback sashes, and embellishing these Wedding Paper Divas escort cards with her gorgeous calligraphy.

I think we all fell in love when we stumbled upon this charming gardening shed on the property. If this doesn’t make you feel all those spring feelings, then I don’t know what will!

Flora + Fauna captured the most beautiful video of our shoot. Make sure you check it out!
