“It’s in His Kiss” Cafe Style Wedding Inspiration

Cafe Wedding Style
When Ashley Garret from Life in the Sunset sneaked this wedding shoot into our inbox, we knew it had our names written all over it! Ashley told us that she wanted to push the limits with some ideas she had for a Valentine’s Day wedding theme. What she ended up with was a gorgeous pink, white and silver modern theme we could easily see being used for an intimate cafe style wedding, engagement party, or rockin bridal shower. Based around the cute “It’s in His Kiss” message it’s jazzed up with fabulous hot pinks, pretty pastels and pops of metallics. You could even take it one step further and have the old hit “It’s in His Kiss” bopping along on your itunes, to really get everyone in the vibe. So there you have it my sweets … time to pucker up and have some heart-infused fun!

The inspiration from Ashley: I had coffee at Graffiti Cafe one afternoon and fell in love with this venue. I thought it would be such a cool place to get married or have a killer party. The floors are perfect for vinyl decals and I love the neon peace sign over the coffee bar. The cafe has a very modern feel but at night ends up being so romantic with it’s lit fireplace and candles.

Snow White Inspired Wedding Shoot by Cathy Lee Photography

Kathryn and Michael were married in 2011, but unfortunately their wedding day was rained out. With a soggy venue and nowhere to take images, their photographer Cathy Lee offered to re-take their wedding images as a styled shoot. This lovely couple were very touched by Cathy’s gesture and quickly envisioned their ideal wedding shoot – a “Snow White” inspired theme. As you’ll see, Cathy Lee put together a wonderful team who magically created this fairytale fantasy for a most deserving pair!

From the Event Planner: When we were told about this couple, we knew instantly they deserved a gorgeous wedding! The inspiration was a classic take on Snow White. We created a styled shoot that wasn’t literal to the story but more elements of the fairytale. In other words, we took Snow White out of the fairy tale book and into the real world. 

The castle was located in the Merrimack area on a quiet hill and was the ideal fantasy backdrop. In keeping with the couple’s request for a classic look which included elements of fun, we worked closely with Soiree (stationary) to create the concept of the fantasy stationery and added a splash of creative cakes and classic florals to the styled shoot. A romantic setting was created by setting the table against the castle and adding elegant red and white linens.

The second table setting allowed us to play with the idea of the woods, dwarfs and nature. Adding texture to the linen  would allow the viewers to see a more nature-like side of Snow White. All of these elements we brought to life to create the perfect storybook setting and a dream come true for this amazing couple.

Photographer Megan shares: While attending the annual Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s International Conference, better known as “WPPI” in Vegas this year, I decided to make the trip even more worth it and signed up for Gavin & Erin Wade’s styled desert shoot. Myself and 15 others hopped in a van and headed down the rural freeway to an open clearing of desert for miles and miles. It was so fun to leave the strip for a bit, and to be able to shoot an amazingly cute couple. Kate and Chris were married this past June and still have the newlywed glow, where just a glance makes the other smile, a photographers dream!!

The Inspiration: {Photographer Carries shares}: I lived in New Orleans for a little while but didn’t get to experience Mardi Gras so I’m always wishing I’m there on Fat Tuesday:-) Part of what I love about my profession is coming up with creative ideas to continue improving and making them happen! So this was a little bit of inspiration that turned into a really cool shoot and it will even be featured soon in Tampa Bay Wedding Styles online magazine which is also pretty exciting. We actually did the session on fat Tuesday and Ybor is as close as I could get to the French Quarter feel. Feathers, bead covered florals and mask, beautiful wedding gown and fabulous models, Bobby and Cienne at the Roosevelt set the scene. I just wanted a simple, rough background and an alleyway I could light purple so we used a video light and off camera flash to create a dramatic effect. Here’s a little behind the scenes and also some of my favs.

Jane Austen Inspired Wedding Shoot

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”

Jane Austen

Jane Austen Novels InspirationWell known English author Jane Austen is renowned for her historical novels and today many gorgeous films have been produced inspired by her work. I’m delighted to share with you this beautiful vintage wedding shoot inspired by all things Jane Austen. Stylishly photographed by Bit of Ivory Photography it brings to life this elegant moment in time and unequivocally captures the romance in her stories that touches our hearts.Although Jane only had a total of  six published novels they have become true role models for romantic love stories since the early 1800’s. Jane Austen’s life and the Regency era (1811 to 1820) with it’s elegance directly reflected the writings she produced.

From the Photographer: It all started when I announced that I was going to Europe. My UK graphic designer friend Melissa Love asked, “Since you and Meghan do stylized shoots, could you help me plan one here in the UK? We’ll do Jane Austen!” I think my heart stopped!  Jane Austen . . .  In England . . .  Do fish breathe underwater?  My life was made.

Gold Vintage Glam Wedding Inspiration

Gold Inspiration WeddingTime for some vintage glam inspiration with this beautiful Gold Wedding Shoot from Douglas Thompson Photo. Styled by Dreamers and Heroes it captures the elegance and glamour of yesteryear all bathed in a soft golden glow. Shot within a 150 year old winery, it combines the rustic warmth of the timber and stone surrounds with the sophistication of a beautiful vintage table setting, antique furniture and gold plated glassware. I particularly love the gorgeous up-do hair style on the bride (perfect for a vintage glam theme or classical wedding), and the simplistic organic bouquet with it’s natural foliage and neutral tones – a wonderful contrast against all the opulence. Golden Wedding InspirationVintage Glam Inspiration ShootGold Wedding Vintage InspirationGolden Vintage Inspiration ShootVintage InspirationVintage Wedding InspirationVintage Wedding GoldGold Vintage Inspiration PhotographyVintage Inspiration ShootGold Wedding BouquetWedding InspirationWedding Inspiration PicturesVintage Glam WeddingAntique Vintage Wedding InspirationAntique Wedding Inspiration

From Douglas Thompson Photo: The Golden Vintage Inspiration shoot shows vintage elements, such as miniature paintings, carnival glass, and antique furniture in contrast to non-traditional elements. The gold gown worn by the bride is the dress the designer, Cena Jane Designs, wore for her own wedding. The gorgeous gold highlights the bride, since she is after all, so very precious. Voila Floral’s bouquet does not contain traditional floral but rather organic, natural elements that accentuate the bride without competing with her. Each place setting has martini glasses instead of champagne glasses, and guests are greeted at their seats by a little touch of brandy and a hand-embroidered kerchief to catch those tears of joy.
