The historic charm of The Century Inn set the scene for this editorial shoot that is sure to give you loads of micro wedding ideas. And while it might be big on style, this shoot is meant to inspire the smallest of celebrations. The simple and yet classic design allowed romance to dazzle with regal details even the Royal Family would love. The intimate affair kicked off with an outdoor set-up mimicking a self-uniting ceremony. It featured a canvas backdrop hung under a wooden arbor adorned with whimsical fresh florals from Leaf Hopper Designs and foil vows books for the exchange of I dos. Bold blue, bright red, and a majestic gold shined inside the bed and breakfast venue, as floral accents, fairy lights, and a statement circular arch from Brittany Anne’s Events added to the moody yet quaint aesthetic. Two princess-worthy bridal looks and a popping red lip courtesy of La Pomponnee Beauty Artisans added to the sophistication. Eye-catching elopement stationery completed the details. Through these creatively styled photos by Angie Candell Photography, this design is ending the stigma and showcasing that you can in fact combine smaller celebrations with luxurious flair!
About the Shoot
I wanted the ceremony to be simple and intimate, and we included a few other stylized details, such as vow books by Theorem Fine Goods.
I draped this gorgeous “And So The Adventure Begins” backdrop from Blushing Drops as the main ceremony decor! In Pennsylvania, you can actually “self-unite,” which means that you don’t need an officiant to seal the deal!
For the reception, I wanted a nice long table that would showcase a circle arch by Brittany Anne’s Events! There were so many pretty details – from the flowers by Leaf Hopper Designs, place settings by Pineapple Street Designs, super cute table settings by The Mustard Couch, and a beautiful, hand-crafted cake topper by Sweet Pea Sugar Art.
I have been wanting to do something epic with a wedding veil for a long time. And a cathedral-length veil was just not going to cut it. So, I got a bolt of tulle – yes, an entire 120 feet of tulle – and hung it out a 2nd story window! I love anything super epic and romantic, so this was really fun to create.
I also have to mention the amazing “We Eloped” announcements by Pineapple Street Designs. Elopement announcements are a perfect way to either invite your friends and family to an “elopement after party,” or to just let them know that you got hitched!
Different gowns were showcased between the ceremony and the reception! I wanted something a bit more regal and classy for the reception, and the gown that A.Cherie Couture sent was beyond perfect! The same thing goes for the veils. For the reception, I wanted a chic little birdcage veil, while I wanted something a bit more whimsical for the ceremony. Vita Couture Veils supplied them, and I am in love with both!
