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.

When it comes to floral designs incorporated in wedding invitations, Behold Designz prides themself on their floral invitation suites. This Etsy shop is owned by two sisters – one that is all right-brain, an artist whose garden offers the most beautiful of flowers to be found in Australia, which she loves to paint in her sunny studio. The other takes all of her sister’s whimsical floral designs and transforms them into romantic wedding stationery. The beauty in this is that all of their original designs are fully customizable to complement any bride’s color scheme. Here is a sample of their work:

Real Wedding: Gaby Ruiz & Jorge Marquez

I was hired by Gaby & Jorge to coordinate their wedding and make sure that all the details that this DIY bride and groom wanted were carried out seamlessly on their wedding day! I would definitely say that this was the most challenging wedding that I have coordinated simply because when they hired me, less than 2 months from their wedding date, they only had the venue secured. I assisted this couple in locating and securing their vendors, provided timelines and checklists to stay on schedule, listened to their vision of the wedding and provided additional inspiration, expertise, and ideas on how to best bring their wishes to reality on their wedding day within the short time frame and tight budget we had to work with. In order to make this the dream wedding that my clients wanted,  a lot of time and effort went into planning and coordinating this wedding prior to the day of, and I am happy to share that on September 2, 2012, this lovely couple shared wedding vows and expressed their love for each other in front of 170 of their family and friends at the Red Horse Barn!

This outdoor wedding turned out beautifully and I received many amazing compliments from the venue, vendors, guests, and the bride and groom regarding how lovely it turned out and how perfectly the day went! (Actually the venue and one of the resident vendors said that out of all the hundreds of weddings they had witnessed at the venue, this one was the best coordinated and planned, and that I was a pleasure to work with.Yay!) I can easily smile along with these two love birds because I was able to plan and coordinate a beautiful wedding for 170 people in less than 6 weeks!  Please take a look at this shabby-chic vintage-styled outdoor wedding held in Huntington Beach, CA.

7 CHARMING RUSTIC WEDDING IDEAS

BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, AUTHOR OF 101 RUSTIC WEDDING IDEAS

Rustic weddings have never been hotter due to brides loving a natural, home spun feel to their wedding. Here are some fresh ideas brides will love, to help that theme, as well as a barn or country theme wedding, along.
x
#1 Chicken Wire Rustic Wedding Decor
Chicken wire is inexpensive and can be used to wrap around vases for centerpieces or framed to hold escort cards. Check out this Pinterest board for more inspiration: http://pinterest.com/3dmemoirs/hot-wedding-trend-for-2013-6-chicken-wire/

#2 Bride’s Entrance
Hire Clydesdale horses pulling a wagon lined in lush horse blankets to bring the bride to the wedding venue.

x
#3 Candy Sticks Buffet
Make your candy buffet colorful candy sticks in glass jars, like the kind found in an old fashioned general store.

x
#4 Bushel Barrel Aisle Markers
Plain wooden bushel barrels are extremely inexpensive. Spray paint them a sienna color and fill with potted Mums (in this case they added red and green cabbages) and put at the start of the aisle.

x
#5 Rustic Wedding Party Introductions
A great way to introduce your wedding party is to have them enter the reception venue and lead into a choreographed square dance or line dance.
x
#6 Engagement Photos with a Rustic Feel
Have your engagement photo be a take off of the famous painting American Gothic, as seen below.
x
#7 Amber Twinkle Lights for Rustic Wedding Decor
Instead of white twinkle lights, use amber brown ones around pillars, tree trunks or strung between barn rafters. They are the same color as beer bottles.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Get more great ideas for your rustic, barn, country or vintage wedding with my e-book, 101 Rustic Wedding Ideas ($5) available at my Etsy shop… Gail.
