vintage inspired bridal shoot

Love is in the air today as I share this beautiful bridal inspiration shoot from Mia Dee Photography. This pink and neutral shoot incorporates a vintage flair with lots of handmade details from some amazing Etsy shop artisans. The addition of gold in the design keeps it fresh and modern, and you will surely be inspired for your own lovely bridal shower or wedding.

The design features 3 areas: a dessert table with whimsical chocolates from The Frosted Petticoat, a welcome table, and a romantic teepee that could serve as a fun photo booth area.  Check out all the details {told by Mia} and vendors below…

Dessert Table:

Red velvet cupcakes topped with The Frosted Petticoat’s chocolate filigree hearts sit daintily on a vintage gold cupcake stand by Glam Fete by Bri. The Frosted Petticoat’s raspberry flavored chocolate typewriters and “key to my heart” candies lie at the forefront, waiting to be eaten. Adorably displayed on a ribboned lollipop stand by Papa Santone’s Workshop, is The Frosted Petticoat’s lavender flavored heart pops. Chocolate kisses from The Frosted Petticoat adorn strawberry & orange flavored macarons and sit sweetly atop a lovely cake stand from Rita Marie Weddings.

The centerpiece of this table is the stunning tiered cake. Covered in Irish cream flavored chocolate gems by The Frosted Petticoat, this yummy mascarpone cake is sure to impress. Sitting atop the cake is a stunningly detailed Marie Antoinette chocolate topper by The Frosted Petticoat. As a finishing touch, it’s beautifully displayed on another cakestand by Rita Marie Weddings. Lastly, the table is decorated with wedding heirlooms: felt acorns by House of Moss, a magenta beaded bouquet by Bridal Bouquets by Ky, a gold & pink brooch bouquet by Magnolia Handmade, bird cake toppers by A Sweet Reverie, and a gold sequin tablecloth by Candy Crush Events.

Welcome table:

A Manzanita tree serves as a cupid-themed centerpiece. The gorgeous silver tree by Simply Mad Weddings is adorned with ornaments from Handy Happy Hearts, Bee Bee Knitting, and Old World Primitives. To its sides, we’ve placed meaningful mementos in honor of love. A sweet spoon art photo by Petek Design reminds us of love. Also, a great way to repurpose a bridal brooch bouquet is by placing it in a reception vase to create a delicate flower arrangement. Here we’ve taken Noaki Jewelry’s beautiful rose brooch bouquet and placed it in a pink & gold glitter mason jar by Jessica Catherine Designs. All of this sits atop a sparkly sequin tablecloth by Candy Crush Events. Lastly, “love” welcomes you to the night’s festivities with Wise & True’s adorable gold marquee sign.

To end the night, the two lovebirds will retire to a romantic evening of indoor camping {this is a fresh idea for a Valentines Day fete too}. The foundation for this whimsical seating area is an ethereal lace ruffle tent by Sugar Shack’s Teepee. Crowning the structure is a rustic felt and tree branch wreath by Madly Wish. Gold glitter XO’s rest on a pile of love poetry at the teepee’s entrance. Gorgeously tempting the lovers on a vintage tiered cakestand by Cake Stand Lady, are some leftover fruit and sweets by The Frosted Petticoat. Lastly, a vibrant gold sequin pillow by Raine Style Home sits inside the tent, adding the final touch of romance to the scene.

Every girl knows that one of the best parts of any special occasion is dressing up! We’ve dressed The Frosted Petticoat founder, Sam in a sexy-n-sweet Carrie Bradshaw-esque tutu dress by Mandolin Dreams. Her hands are blinged out with multiple vintage wedding rings from Temsah Jewelers and she’s rocking graffiti-splattered earrings from Akireaus. Extra sweet accessories include a hot pink lace shrug and gold feather hairpins by Graceful Hunter. Sam also has an heirloom button bouquet by Bride as a Button to commemorate the night’s festivities.

    love this. Onto a different subject altogether some of these dessert tables are good to highlight a few things. In sri lanka we have big crowds to invite even for a child’s birthday and setting up a dessert/food table is daunting because there is so much food you just have to make, so there is no room for being delicate. Any suggestion on how you can still have a beautiful table.

    That is so pretty. Wedding is such a beautiful decision for both the bride and the groom. They spend their whole life together. What is required is to just find the best partner for you.
