Hi again everyone! I hope y’all are enjoying the inspiration shoot featured today! Since I’m of course all about the details, I wanted to share a few more photos with you all and give you some insight into my inspiration for them! And since the shoot was for a workshop, I thought I would share some of the attendees’ photos with you all too! Because I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love seeing different takes on the same details, as well as seeing the different styles of photography! :)

 

We’re starting off with one of our Every Last Vendor members, Laura Ann Miller Photography, who is the sweetest person and an absolutely FABULOUS photographer! :)

In case you haven’t noticed yet, one of my FAVORITE details is the table number. I don’t know why, but it just is! For this table number, I created it around the fringe & layers theme that I had for the whole shoot. I simply used different sized strips of tissue paper (as I will explain for the “place-runners), adhered it to a piece of cardstock, which I also attached to a plexiglass plate (you can just do the cardboard- I just had to weigh it down a little), and put a cut-out cardstock number on top of it!

Did you notice the slight “ombre” effect of the centerpiece containers? Catherine of Layers of Lovely did an amazing job with flowers, painting containers and vases in all different shades of blue, teal, and aqua. I loved that she gave me extra little vases too- I was able to “prettify” a few of the more plain areas throughout the shoot! Oh, and here you get a good glimpse of what I like to call “place-runners”… kind of like placemats, kind of like a runner… keep reading for more of a description on them!

Along with the fringe and layers inspiration that I had for my design, I also wanted to include a few tassels in the mix too. Of course I had to have some sort of seating detail at the table, so I attached placecards to tassels and tied them to the arms of the ghost chairs! [A little hint for the tassels… I used crepe paper for them- you know, the rolls that you can buy at the party store. It gave me the perfect width and was a little more sturdy than tissue paper.]

Ah, escort cards… another one of my favorite details ever! :) Alicia of A&P Designs added fringe to the edges of the escort cards that she created, and I created this ladder-and-fringe-garland backdrop for them. I attached the cards to the garland using painted clothespins, which I had also written the table number on. Essentially, the *realistic* concept would be that you would have several rows of a garland like this, guests would walk up, find their name (easily, because your cards would be in ALPHABETICAL order, and the clothespin would tell them what table they’re sitting at!

I was so lucky that the lovely model already had a pair of aqua heels… how perfect is that?! I always love a good pop of color under a dress, and especially this one by Claire La Faye! The detachable ruffle train made this dress the perfect choice for the shoot… especially when paired with the fabulous look of bright makeup and a fun, eclectic crimped hairstyle! And with Stella & Dot jewelry and a hairpiece custom-created by Carlee Sizemore, our bride’s look was complete! Oh, and how AMAZING is the vintage furniture by The Wooden Trunk?!

The ladder-and-fringe-garland backdrop that I used for the escort card display also served a dual purpose as a backdrop for the amazing cake by Gimme Some Sugar! I’m all about killing two birds with one stone when it comes to wedding details, and this worked out absolutely perfect! [Note: The fringe garland is actually made of felt and was made by the Etsy shop Ally & Aidan.]

So now I get to finally explain my “place-runner” to you all! These babies were literally my babies. (Not to mention that I was traveling with them for nearly a week before even getting to Vegas… I’m still quite proud of the system that I devised to keep them from getting crinkled!) I wanted to do something a little bit different than what you normally see on tables. I love placemats, but I’ve done those before. And I love runners, but with what we were planning on for the centerpieces, I knew that a runner wouldn’t be seen too well. I wanted something that would sort of “define” the placesettings and also be a part of the tablescape… and so, I created “place-runners”! 

Using measurements from the table, I added a bit to each end so it would hang over the edge of the table. I used wrapping paper as the base of the place-runners, and cut them to the size that I wanted. Then, using various sized strips of tissue paper in my colors, I folded, taped, glued and fringed… adhering the pieces to the wrapping paper base. And yes, it took me FOREVER… I definitely wouldn’t recommending doing exactly this for a wedding, but I’m sure a version of it with larger sections would be easier. About 12-14 hours of folding, taping, gluing and fringing, I had my “place-runners” that incorporated the layers and fringe design elements of the shoot!
