The smallest detail can be the inspiration for your wedding design.
Amanda Allsbrook of Magnificent Moments Weddings created this entire wedding inspiration shoot around blue and white china. She incorporated lovely details and pops of pink to curate a romantic and classic style, all captured by Green Valley Photography. By choosing a single item as her inspiration, Amanda was able to execute a cohesive look that successfully highlights the beauty of the china.
We all have items we cherish, things we love, and ideas we can’t let go of. So why not use those as inspiration for your wedding? Let yourself be inspired by what you love. Maybe it’s your grandmother’s china, or a black and white photograph, or your vintage engagement ring. Perhaps you find inspiration in your mother’s wedding gown or the pattern of your father’s pocket square. Or maybe you start with your favorite colors or a time period you are obsessed with. Whatever that little detail is, you can make it bigger and make it the focal point of your big day.
No matter where you get your wedding inspiration, it will be special, because it will be significant to you.
From Amanda Allsbrook, Owner of Magnificent Moments Weddings:
This photo shoot was inspired by my love of decorating with blue and white china. The blue canton china dinner plates were purchased at a local antique mall. The original concept for the shoot was based on these plates, but incorporated the use of any blue and white china and pink flowers. I narrowed down the flower choices to pink peonies accented with roses because it best exemplified the proper color scheme paring with blue and white china. Pink peonies truly brought the color scheme of blue, white, and pink together.
I found inspiration from interior design blogs and pictures of blue canton china used at dinner parties. Five design concepts were used in the shoot: a dinner table, drink table, gift table, silhouette booth, and a cake table. The dinner table also had a beautiful fireplace that was used to help make the space feel more intimate. The dinner table was kept very classic, using the blue canton china plates, a navy tablecloth, and just small pops of pink through the flowers in the centerpiece and on the menu cards. The drink table brought more color to the shoot by using signature cocktails in two colors. The silhouette booth is a play on the photo booths you often see at weddings. It played right into the concept for the shoot of being very classic and was something different to help inspire brides. The Separk mansion is a beautiful setting that complimented the classic look of the shoot perfectly with the venue’s hardwood floors, checkered floor, and beautiful chandeliers.
