Shabby Chic Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Melanie of She-n-He Photography, along with Three Apples Events, Antiquaria and Zinnia and Company, created a tablescape that is filled to the brim with gorgeous wedding ideas that are simple to achieve and can be done in many different ways. They weaved ribbons in different colors and widths that starred as a table overlay, which laid the foundation for pretty vintage china from Antiquaria. I also loved the hanging teacups that formed a chandelier-like arrangement with flowers “pouring” on the table.

For this inspiration shoot (photography by She-n-He Photography and Design) we wanted to create a striking tea party brunch wedding but with an air of dreaminess and whimsy. Shot at The Inn at Wild Rose Hall, one of Austin’s most naturally stunning venues, the table itself was a beautiful tea service set to stand out against the forest-like background. Antiquaria provided the gorgeous china on the table – elegant plates, teacups, and glasses set on a deep blush tablecloth. We created the woven ribbon topper bring a fun rainbow of colors to the table to offset the formality of the tea sets and china. Leah of Zinnia and Company created stunning low centerpieces of spray and garden roses (traditional tea party fare) mixed with more unusual Spanish moss, poppy pods, seeded eucalyptus and millet. We carried the tea theme throughout – the table number and escort cards, created by She-n-He Photography and Design, were attached to mismatched saucers. Queen of the FrontTIER made an incredible spread from tea sandwiches to scones, mini pies to cookies and on and on. To bring the whimsy, we hung teacups and other tea set pieces from the tree branches overhead and have flowers in some of the pieces, as if creamers were spilling moss or teacups were pouring roses.

The bride we envisioned two dresses for the occasion. To start, she was dressed in a stunning long gown with a draped flowing overlay polkadotted with crystals paired with a gorgeous jeweled collar necklace for some fun. The dress was very ethereal, to look like she floated out of the forest. But for the reception, she would change into something more fun, easy and breezy – a simple short poofy number and a pink rose choker with rose gold sandals, all provided by Gilda Grace Collections. Shot in the early early morning hours to get the best light (which meant starting setup before the crack of dawn!), we couldn’t be more appreciative of all the vendors for their fabulous work!

Brooklyn Bridge Park Wedding

Bohemian Weddings

This week couldn’t have started off in a better way than with this Brooklyn wedding, setting the tone for yet another week of stylish couples. Julie Pepin Photographer shot their wedding in Dumbo, where Victoria and Justin exchanged vows at one of my favorite places: Brooklyn Bridge park, with Manhattan’s skyline as the backdrop. So without further ado:

From the bride, Victoria:
The Ceremony –
Our ceremony was on a tiny pebble beach with Manhattan as the backdrop. The DUMBO area of Brooklyn, tucked into the shadows of the bridges with it’s cobblestone streets and Old-New York feel could not have been more perfect. As the trains went by in the distance and curious tourists looked on, all we could see was each other. It’s amazing how a ceremony in such a public place could feel so intimate and quiet.

The Reception –
After the ceremony, the guests walked down the street to reBar, which is in a beautiful loft space in an old reclaimed tea factory. The walls are filled with the work of local artists and are lit by antique chandeliers and candlelight. In the lounge area, they let us play an old Disney film we love from the 30’s called Flowers & Trees on loop. We filled the wooden shelves with childhood photos and wedding portraits of those who came before us. There was no assigned seating, no stuffy sit down dinner. Instead, we had an all night-long cocktail “hour” with all sorts of comfort food and strong drinks flowing throughout the evening. We had what I proudly claim to be the smallest wedding cake in history. It was the size of an old 45 and covered with rainbow sprinkles. Perfection.

My Favorite Moment –
My most treasured moment from a day filled with nothing but treasured moments, was when we had our first look at one another. As I walked towards him I felt like I was in a cloud. Everything seemed to be in a slight, beautiful blur. When I finally faced him it was surreal. It was him and I, all dressed up in our special grown up wedding clothes, giggling with each other that it was finally here, it was all happening. And in my mind, at that moment, staring at one another in awe, without saying anything at all, is when we really said “I do”.
