I’m not what you would call a girlie girl, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like a bit of sparkle in my life every once in awhile. Now I’m not talking about over the top, in your face flashiness. Quite the opposite. I’m talking about subtle touches of bling, a look perfectly captured by a little decorative secret called Acrylic Crystals.
Theme friendly and applicable to everything from favors to centerpieces, you can’t go wrong with Acrylic Crystals. A fresh spin on the popular faux diamond bling, these pretty decorative details provide a gorgeous but subtle finish wherever applied. Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, and easy to use, consider these accents every girl’s “new best friend”. But enough of what I think. Let’s let some visuals do the talking!
Anna and Chris had an amazing spring wedding this past April in their local surroundings of Virginia Beach! With colorful details and a light airy flow, their wedding is whimsical and beautiful! I’m especially in love all their simple yet vibrant details and their bright pink and navy color combination that really gives their wedding that something extra. Get ready to be inspired and feel the love in the air – this spring wedding most certainly has extra doses of both! Enjoy!
Ally + Shaun had a gorgeous homespun wedding in Maine this past September. I love how their friends and family pitched in to help with all the DIY details that truly made their day unique! From the homemade treats to the laid back mason jar drinks, it’s simple to see Ally + Shawn’s personalities are woven into each part of their intimate wedding. Congratulations you two, it looks like it was a blast!
Cindy + Floyd’s simple June wedding is perfect with its’ peacock theme. With amazing details everywhere, from Cindy’s swirling bouquet to the matching floral arrangements made with magnolia leaves, peacock feathers and flowers, C+F’s soiree is gorgeous, unique and yet still homey. I am especially in love with how they utilized Cindy’s hometown with its’ great historic backdrops to capture truly memorable wedding memories. Plus, Cindy has some of the most amazing wedding shoes I have ever seen! Enjoy and congratulations Cindy + Floyd!
It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!
This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”
I’m always saying things like ‘all you need is a little imagination’ or ‘ the possibilities are practically endless’. You may or may not believe me, but today I’m going to show you that those sentiments are exactly right. We have a simple product here at Weddingstar – the Baroque Frames. They are pretty straightforward, either black or gold, square or round, big or small. At first glance you see a nicely designed frame that may or may not fit in with your wedding decor.
Take a look again. What could you do with this simple product? Put a picture in it? – That’s what frames are for right? Well you could do that.. OR you could try out one of these 6 ideas we’ve put together to start you off!
Everything begins in the same place, whether it is a revolutionary movement or a work of art – it begins with an idea. Your wedding style will emerge the same way, as do all of our photoshoots.
This shoot began with a glitter – a glisten. We took the idea of a ‘sparkle’ and built a table setting around it.
This post will walk you through one of our photoshoots – from conception to completion and everything in-between.
The two individuals that were instrumental in creating this shoot were; Luke, the media guy, and Tara, one of our graphic designers. Over the past few months they were both featured on the blog via Luke’s Introduction and Tara’s Reception Ideas.
The thing is, not every centerpiece has to be exactly the same. The one thing I absolutely love is how creative you can really be. It charms me to no end when I see a wedding that has forgone the use of the traditional flower centerpiece. I think that is why I tend to talk about them so often, I’m just hoping that someone reads my posts and is inspired to do something utterly unique to them, (and then of course send me oodles of fabulous photos that I can rave about)!
