4th of July Wedding Inspiration Shoot

CreativityGina PaulsonComment

Happy Fourth of July! 

I recently was part of a shoot with some local vendors and wanted to share it with you guys today! This was a Summertime Rustic American Styled Wedding Shoot and we worked with a local florist and a REAL happily married and incredible gorgeous couple for the shoot. It was incredibly laid back, sunny, and fun to be a part of. I got to try my hand at styling for this one, and came up with the tablescape as well as the stationary! (I may have also crafted a last minute flower crown, don't judge me on that baby though! Focus more on the table florals and bouquet that were actually done by an AMAZING florist here in town) 

STLYING: For the tables I wanted to incorporate a lot of rustic and old details. They live on this incredible cute barn so I knew red would be a huge color component and I tried to balance that with white and blue vintage dinnerware. 

PAPER GOODS: This was meant to be informal and light hearted. The only traditional aspect of it might be the vintage-style airmail RSVP Envelope, other than that the rest is pretty whimsical and fun. We added some watercolor brush strokes, a navy envelope with red paint and a mixture of white calligraphy and handlettering. I loved getting to finish off the invitation with "Fireworks to Follow"

So I had the honor of creating some Save the Date's for a beautiful bride earlier this year. You can see them here and also their feature on Oh So Beautiful Paper! I also got to design and calligraphy their wedding invitations which was so fun.  Danielle was looking for something rustic that fit her outdoor wedding. We went with some watercolored leafy accents and fun calligraphy. I love how these turned out for her and can officially congratulate her on her wedding now!
