I could not wait to share this feature with y’all! Inspired by the love of childhood sweethearts, these wedding ideas from Live View Studios and Viva L’Event are absolutely amazing! Number 2 pencils, stacks of books, class rings, and blackboards are just a few of the schoolhouse details that play a part in this inspiration. And not only is everything fabulous, but every single bit of this is quite dear to me, as my husband and I are high school sweethearts! I think it’s safe to say that happy recollections of note-passing, movie dates, and school dances are flooding my head today- and just in time, since our wedding anniversary is coming up! Enough about us though- let’s get lost in these awesome childhood sweetheart wedding ideas…

From Stephanie of Viva L’Event:

This shoot was inspired by the love between two childhood sweethearts.  The times when you would be in class and the boy you liked would pass you a note or bring you a flower.  The times you would take a stroll hand in hand and him giving you his letterman jacket or school ring made it official.  We wanted to shoot to be a mix of old and new with retro aspects making it a touch of fun.  The color palette we chose for this shoot was black, grey, gold, white, with touches of pink and red.  We used the touches of the venue with the huge chalkboard and brick walls accented this with the couples name and wedding date.  The cake which had the same inspiration incorporated a chalkboard look on the bottom tier and finishing it with some school books and apple on top.  We used a mix of vintage chairs and books to add to the elements of the sequin linen and place setting for that touch of elegance.  The stationary went along with the chalkboard style keeping within the elegant fun style.  The flowers with a spring summer feel were like freshly picked out of a garden with the touches of gold ferns for the table.  The bouquet was so much fun like flowers picked up right from the farmers market with a fun ribbon to tie them together.  Table numbers were based off of what grade level with the head table being “1st Grade”.  The place cards were small zebra’s with the chalkboard name tags to keep with the childhood fun.  The escort cards were #2 pencils to direct you to your grade.  The vintage style coke bottles bring you back to the old times of the soda shops and to add to this who doesn’t love a donut and milk to finish the night (a sweet surprise).  

I wish something like this had been around when I was planning, because I definitely would have had a totally different perspective on my wedding details and design!

Are any of you high school or childhood sweethearts? Or even college sweethearts? I’d love to hear from y’all! Are you planning on incorporating your “sweetheart” story into your wedding details?

 

PS: I definitely have to give an extra special THANK YOU to all the vendors involved in this amazing shoot! Everyone put in so much talent, heart, and soul into this editorial for ELD, and that means the world to me. :)
