How about a little inspiration for this lovely Tuesday? Stephanie A Smith Photography sent over this adorable little pink vintage inspiration shoot for me to share with you. The shoot was completely inspired by her great grandmother’s china, which is absolutely beautiful- and of course, vintage. It’s simple, delicate, dainty, and just absolutely gorgeous!

She got some gorgeous shots, right?! That field is just so gorgeous! I also wanted to share with you all what Stephanie had to say about her inspiration, because it’s just so sweet and beautiful…

I’m not girlie. I don’t like to wear dresses, or curl my hair. And the idea of makeup makes me cringe. Sometimes I stare at my beautiful, very put together grandmother and mother and wonder how I am the descendent offspring. Yet alas, there was a glimmer of hope for me as I gazed into my mom’s china cupboard and fell head over heels for these delicate pink and white teacups. They were so dainty, so fragile, so beautiful. As I pulled out the pieces, one by one, I wanted to know their story. Where they came from, what they were used for. It turns out they belonged to my great grandmother, Ruth Hoffman. Ruth was a classy woman with exquisite taste. She loved to hold tea parties and Holidays at her home so that she could set the Foley China onto the lace table setting. I’m told she had quite the artistic eye and loved to create floral centerpieces and table settings of the utmost lavishness. However, being a married woman in the 1920’s meant that tending to the home and family took precedence over your passions. Meaning the only possible creative outlet Ruth had was with her table settings. As my grandmother {Ruth’s daughter} finished telling me about her mother I became inspired. I wanted to take these heirlooms and create an arrangement of my own. Something that not only expressed me but also paid homage to the generations before. Something tells me that if my great grandmother were here today she would look at this creation and be very proud of me :)

 Isn’t that so incredibly touching? Not to mention inspiration too- it’s always so meaningful when you can incorporate vintage elements into your wedding design that mean something to you. Something like the china that Stephanie used would be the perfect way to do that!

Are any of you using vintage elements in your wedding that mean something to you?
