Victorian Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot

Beautiful Victorian Wedding Inspirational Shoot

Victorian Wedding – what a creative concept for a 21st century wedding! In history, the Victorian period marked a “long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain”. (Source: Wikipedia) When I think Victorian a few words come to mind: classic, elegant, refined, high tea & lovely china, big fancy dresses with corsets, curly hair and interesting hats and accessories. What comes to mind when you think of the Victorian period?

I have always been intrigued by history and the various eras, way of life, fashion, art, religion, culture, etc that existed before my life began. It is common for people to find inspiration in history (fashion, art, culture, etc) and either replicate, creatively build upon, or re-engineer to suit modern taste and style. When it comes to weddings, we are seeing less “traditional” weddings and more creative and personalized weddings that match the style and personality of the bride and groom. Recent popular wedding style choices have been whimsical, rustic, modern,vintage, outdoor, beach, etc. So when the opportunity came my way to share and inspirational shoot for Victorian-styled wedding, I was all in!

Today I am excited to share a lovely Victorian wedding inspirational photo shoot beautifully put together by a creative and talented group of wedding professionals. Let me give you a few details of the photo shoot:

What inspired this Victorian wedding photo shoot? This photo shoot was inspired by a china plate from Plate Vintage Rentals. The color coordination of the plate was amazing and immediately gave us the idea of creating a Victorian inspired photo shoot. From the lace fabrics to the custom designed invitation suite and Victorian details this shoot was full of ideas and lots of attention to details.

The venue looks amazing, where did this photo shoot take place? This photo shoot took place at the amazingly beautiful Grove Redfield Estate in Glenview Illinois. The bright colors and beautiful fireplace gave this Victorian photo shoot a cozy and romantic feel.

Etsy Thursday: Rainbow Wedding

Rainbow Etsy Wedding Inspiration

It is no surprise that rainbows are a favorite for kids. Even as an adult I still love rainbows, especially when I see them in the sky! Summer is around the corner and I can’t help but notice the increase of popularity for rainbow themed birthday parties. So, I thought that it would be lovely to share an Etsy inspired rainbow wedding for this week’s Etsy Thursday. Are you ready for some awesomeness? I think you’ll love these vibrant and colorful Etsy wedding finds, plus the great thing about this color palette is that you can pair it with shapes, such as chevron, polka dots, and stripes. Experience the rainbow.

Etsy Thursday: Dandelion Wedding

Dandelion Etsy Wedding Inspiration

I LOVE Dandelions and have noticed them increase in popularity over the past year. More artists and designers are incorporating it into their work and I’ve noticed more lovely Dandelion tattoos on folks. This week I thought it would be fun to share an Etsy Thursday post on Dandelion wedding inspiration from some awesome Etsy shops. For this post I decided to go with a rustic feel but in case you are interested in more colorful options, you should know that I did see quite a few lovely, colorful Dandelion wedding finds on Etsy. In addition to infusing colors, dandelions would also be perfect for an elegant black and white theme, whimsical theme, or vintage wedding theme.

Etsy Thursday: Bicycle Themed Wedding

Bicycle Themed Wedding Inspiration

I can’t begin to tell you how many amazingly creative and cute bicycle-themed wedding invitations I found on Etsy. So many that I had to cut myself off so that this post is 50 photos long and I decided that I will have to do a second post on bicycle-themed wedding inspiration. I love the vintage feel of the bicycle theme, the colors, and the font. I have put together a unique collection of Etsy wedding finds below that should provide inspiration for anyone considering a bicycle theme – you can incorporate a rustic, vintage-style, or modern bicycle theme.

Etsy Thursday: Fall Weddings

When I started searching for Fall Wedding items on Etsy, I had no idea how many wonderful finds I would come across. I literally had to cut myself off from adding more and more lovely finds. I definitely think a part two within the next couple months of Fall is so necessary.
