Enchanted Atelier was inspired by the effortlessly chic bride for their Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. Filled with memorable vintage inspired accessories, and a little bit of 20′s for good measure. They are adding new designs to their collection and some new versions of some of their favorite pieces.
Here a few of their favorite designs in their “Enchanted Atelier for Claire Pettibone” line. We love them all.
These looks were put together by some of the finest wedding professionals in the business. The flawless makeup was done by Liz Wegrzyn, the ethereal confections were designed by Maggie Austin Cakes, the gorgeous gowns by the one of a kind Claire Pettibone, the headpieces and accessories by Enchanted Atelier. Of course the epically beautiful model Leanne Hyer.
All captured at the breath taking Goodstone Inn. You can say “I do” to an elegant country wedding on 265 acres in the heart of Virginia’s wine and hunt country. A whole property (“Carriage House”) rental gives you multiple choices where your ceremony and reception may be celebrated, including their pool and ivy façade.
I love how intricate, unique and artsy wedding cakes are getting! Gone are the days of the plain cake (woo hoo!). 2013 brought in new wedding trends, including the rise of hand-painted cakes. These sweet confections are true works of art and almost look too good to eat…almost! As the reception centerpiece, hand-painted cakes are a great way to reflect your theme, the season (spring, fall, etc) or even be made to resemble your invitations and stationary. Below are a few recent faves:
I remember when I was a little girl dreaming about getting married on a church jam packed with lovely flowers. I didn’t care much about the type of flowers as long as they where white and there was lots and lots of them. And that’s exactly what I did! When the day came, I chose a gorgeous old mission for my ceremony and I gave my wedding planner the only requirement for my ceremony decor– to jam pack the place with white flowers. It was beautiful, but it wasn’t that “magic”! quite honestly, nowadays I wish I’ve had more control over the whole ceremony decor. But it is too late for me, but not late for you my friend!
Whether you place them along the aisle or in some tall and pretty vases at the altar, flowers are some of the details that probably shouldn’t be miss at any wedding ceremony (in my humble opinion). So here is a gallery with truly gorgeous ideas to get you inspired and invite you to take control over your wedding ceremony decor. Enjoy!
Since we have boudoir on the mind from our last feature from Boudoir On Film we have a few vintage style lingerie ideas for your up and coming boudoir session. Keep in mind that quite a few of our selections are one of a kind vintage. If you love them – buy them, because they will soon be gone. How much are you loving the silk satin bloomer shorts shown above?
We are currently obsessed with all things bright and cheery, including a little pop of yellow underneath your wedding gown. Yellow really packs a punch this wedding season in all gradients. Neon is back and taking over, light sunshine hues are as pretty as ever and of course we always love a classic pure yellow.
Documented fact that we love it when a bride rocks a colored shoe for her wedding. Yes, one of the main reasons being that you are able to wear them again, but they also make a statement-piece for photos. Another bonus is if you decided to slip into a shorter party dress for the evening reception. All your guests will be able to see what has been hiding underneath that pretty gown of yours.
This week we are visiting the wedding shoe again. So far we have listed our favorite gold, blue and now pink wedding shoes. We are huge fans of incorporating color into your wedding shoes. It really does add a little extra bit of fabulous to your wedding look and feel. Skip the white satin pumps and say, “yes” to something with a little color.
As we have said before we are firm believers in accessorizing on your wedding day, at your boudoir shoot, pretty much anywhere. Simply by adding a hair accessory or a simple sash, is often the finishing piece to your already striking ensemble. If you are on the prowl for that perfect accessory to finish off your look, be sure to peruse one of our favorite accessory and now dress designers Tessa Kim. Her looks are refined, gorgeous and unique.
These accessories with the vintage inspired bride in mind. From the headpieces to the dress sashes, every accessory entails vintage millinery accents ranging from the 1920s-1960s. For this photo shoot I wanted create ornate accessories that would make a statement for any wedding day. I used very soft and romantic fabrics such as silk, satin, velvet and cotton to compliment the more ornate details such as the crystals, rhinestones, glass pearls and detailed vintage lace.
I wanted to take an unconventional approach to styling this shoot. It was important to me to capture the architectural integrity of each individual piece and focus on the intricate details Tessa is phenomenal in creating. Rather than put the models in bridal attire, I envisioned the styling to encompass a bare and sensual aesthetic to compliment the beauty of each piece.
Today we’re looking at wedding stationery, and wedding invites. Wedding invitations can do so much to set the tone of your day, so that people will know what type of wedding to expect. From fun cartoon styles, traditional letterpress and glamorous gilding to romantic and personalised love stories, you can find the perfect invitation for whatever your personality as a couple.
Comic Strip Style Wedding Invite
We love this very retro, very whimsical idea for wedding invites. It’s a great way to include the story of your relationship in fabulous colours and is sure to make quite the impact on your guests when they receive it! How could you NOT RSVP?!
For an equally cute but personalised alternative, think about getting a caricature wedding invitation done, perhaps based on an engagement photo? Or for a real burst of colour, try Rosy Days – Wedding Stationery, who create unique designs based on your wedding style and venue in a wonderfully fun cartoon style.
Couture Stationery Collection
If you really want to inject personality into your wedding stationery, couture letterpress is a brilliant way to go. Pretty as a Picture provide a bespoke letterpress service and can design an entire range of stationery to include save the dates, table names and bridal shower invites (as above) to your specifications. They work by putting together a mood board of your style, your passions and your ideas for what you want your wedding to be like, and drafting several drawings before creating a range that’s as unique as you are.

For a romantic and feminine feel to your invites, consider something similar to this laser cut floral edge cream invite with statement silk bow by Save the Date!
Vintage Minimalist – Calligraphy
Calligraphy is a beautiful, fresh and romantic way to have your wedding invites written up. Think about hiring a calligrapher, and use simple, plain off white card for a modern look with a dreamy feel.
Fun Poloroid-Inspired Invites & RSVPs
These poloroid style invites are ideal for those planning a particularly peppy wedding day! They add a whimsical feel while also being very personal. Wedding photos are popular for thank you cards such as The Parlour Press’s wonderful vintage-style photo thank you cards (which we definitely suggest you take a look at!), but why not use a great photo of you both as an invite too?
Traditional Monogrammed Invitation
For a traditional black tie affair, we love the idea of monogrammed stationery. This invite by Finer Details certainly gives an air of sophistication to your celebration even before your guests know where your fabulous celebration will be held!
Luxurious Gold/Silver Foil Stamping – Bella Figura Foil Stamping at Pretty as a Picture
Bella Figura letterpress is a style of foil stamping to create a gilded look on the face and the sides of card. This style of stationery is done by Dublin based wedding stationery suppliers Pretty as a Picture. Bella Figura can be mixed with letterpress or used on its own as all-foil printing with all foil printing (Pretty as a Picture recommends think matte gold on shiny gold for a real ‘wow’ factor!) It is perfect for a gold or silver themed wedding, for a 20s style vintage inspired celebration, or a thoroughly elegant affair.
Quirky Art-Deco Inspired Invites & RSVPs
This invite by Feather & Ink displays a beautiful modern art deco style and can be customised to your own colour scheme. It’s clean lines and contrasting colours make for a very contemporary feel to a vintage style.

Love story invites are a major trend for 2013 weddings, and we think they’re a great way to share your personal story with your guests.

White or Cream’s Beggan wedding invite is a stunning display of graphic design for wedding stationer. We love the way the whole collection sits together, bound by a pretty floral design. The collection is simple yet intricate and the quote provides a unique and romantic feel.

A very non-trational shape for wedding invites, this set including a bottle shaped day invite was created for a vineyard wedding in the U.S. We love this rustic look with a bit of a twist as it shows that you can really think outside of the box(y) when it comes to your stationery!
