Handmade Wedding Inspiration
We’re delighted to share this next shoot with you all, inspired by photographer Athena Pelton‘s love of all things etsy and handmade. Nearly everything from the photoshoot is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, right down to the bride’s wedding gown with touches of blush pink! Prepare yourself for some eye candy styled by the wonderful Nadia of A Fine Fete Events and some handmade greatness.
From the photographer, Athena: I recently designed and shot an inspiration shoot styled around my vintage dressmaker sewing machine. As I was pulling inspiration for the shoot, I found myself on Etsy all. day. long. Looking for inspiration, and perusing the beautiful handmade goodness that abounds.
Being a knitter, sewer, and all-around-craft-maven myself, I cherish handmade, and saw this as an amazing opportunity to celebrate the fantastic resources that Etsy provides and style a wedding shoot around vintage love – and handmade details. The design of the shoot itself isn’t groundbreaking, but the concept behind using as many handmade items as possible (including the one-of-a-kind blush gown!) is something that any bride can embrace.
