This week, I posted a beautiful wedding invitation suite for a lovely HollyHedge Estate couple, plus I shared all of the details behind one of my favorite weddings ever at the Fairmount Horticulture Center. It’s been quite the week! And, what better way to cap things off than by sharing an elegant, rustic, bohemian inspiration shoot featured on Philly in Love?
If you’re searching for a wedding venue in Central Pennsylvania, Historic Shady Lane should definitely be on your list. The site is beautifully historic, just as the name denotes, and it’s set amongst trees and beautiful green space. It’s the exact type of venue Pennsylvania is known for, and it’s the greenhouse that served as the setting for the bohemian shoot.
Aside from the setting, the key piece of inspiration for this shoot was the gowns designed by Sheila Frank. Each gown is filled with a soft elegance that’s as bohemian as it is romantic. Avant Garbage Boutique added earrings to each bride’s look, and the rings and bracelets from MaeJean Vintage are beautiful showstoppers.
Aside from the fashion, the bohemian feel was embraced even more as florals filled with ivory blooms and rich greenery were added thanks to Tulips and Twine. Plus, Swoon Vintage Rentals provided chairs that exuded modern, vintage style, and a wedding inspiration shoot wouldn’t be complete without a cake by Lysa’s Caketique and desserts from DD’s Sweets.
With the gowns, colors, and details in mind, I set out to create stationery that welcome guests and matched the feel. I turned to texture when creating the backdrop for the invitation and its corresponding inserts. The backdrop features deep green tones, and they’re paired with greenery touches and script font. The feel is modern and romantic, which I also carried through into the poem by Anna from Blue Rose Poem. The piece would be ideal to hold during a couple’s wedding day portrait session, and it would also look beautiful by a guest book or card box.
