Latest Obsession: 3D Wedding Invites
I love when brides/grooms add a bit of innovation to their wedding invites. Here’s a couple that has something in common, they pop off the page. If it’s something you’re a bit wary about, you can also consider doing this for your save-the-dates which always have room for a little fun. Do you like it?
With the invitation telling the romantic fairy tale story of their wedding, from the proposal to the actual wedding party at a castle with alpine scenery, the folded Leporello silhouette landscape card, does not only tell the story but is unique and a keepsake to always remember the most gorgeous day of their lives. The intricate design and the folded pieces, combined especially with the two-colored paper make this invitation a little piece of art.
It started as a hand-cut cutart wedding invitation, but I wanted it to be much more delicate and detailed. So the technique was to be laser cut with a touch of laser engraving. Producing an invitation without ink, it was a challenge to get the typography to be readable. Apart from that, it was also a challenge to not overdue the design, because the lasertime is expensive.
This DIY pop-up baby shower invitations I made (with the help of custom silhouettes by Le Papier Studio and modern calligraphy by Sincerely, Dapper) for our special friends. I’ll be hosting the event in Chicago on a Sunday after I photograph a fantastic winter wedding 😉 Being our friend’s first little one (nicknamed Baby Kiwi), I really wanted to make it memorable with a special theme: Polar Pop-Up Potluck! (hint hint, it’s in Chicago during February). The whole thing will be DIY at a modern floral shop space. Yes, I’ll have plenty of pics to show you next month, lots and lots of details! For now, take a peek of the invitation (resources listed at the end)!
This was all about the latest 3D invitation obsession. Let us move to ballerina and swan lake inspired photoshoot in which this gorgeous couple has used very pretty golden and white 3D invitation.
So am going to share a photoshoot that’s near and dear to my heart, considering the fact that it incorporates three things that I love. Ballet, $ex in the city & all things pretty. Yep. That awesome. Designed & styled by Blossom Events and captured by Edison Photography, you’ll agree that there are so many little details that you can use as inspiration for your own wedding.
From Blossom Events: It started with watching old episodes of $ex and the City and the scene from the last episode of $ex and the City when Carrie was sitting on her bed in her Versace gown. The dress reminded us of romance and a giant tutu skirt. This very quickly evolved into a ballerina/swan lake inspired photoshoot. When we think of ballet, we relate that to lots of tulles, ruffles, feathers, gracefulness, lightness, and of course romance. We were also inspired by the beautiful architecture in Russian ballet halls.
Our vision was to create a wedding that is romantic, girly, and modern with a tinge of vintage. We wanted to keep everything girly, so we decided on the colors – light pink, ivory, and white.
For the bridal gown, we wanted something like a tutu skirt, but with a twist, and something big. It is a Mori Lee gown from the Blu Collection. We loved the texture of the gown, and because it was made of organza, it was light and fluffy.
The tulle pom pom picks were made to create a little softness and fun to the drinks.
We love DIY projects, and wanted to do simple details that we thought will also provide the light romantic feel. We used satin ribbons to create the backdrop because it reminded us of satin ribbons from ballerina shoes.
