I'm so happy to share with you this whimsically elegant Alice in Wonderland themed wedding shoot from Christina Wright of Simply Modern Weddings, along with an amazing cast of other wedding professionals too. The complete list of all participating vendors can be found at the end of the post. I'm totally in love with the color palette - it's just beautiful and would be absolutely perfect for a bridal shower in the garden. Below is the story behind the photo shoot concept as told by Christina. "This fun shoot was inspired and styled with our own fun spin on the Alice in Wonderland story! As with other adaptations of young Alice's tale, our Alice is quite the dreamer. However, instead of imagining a world of silly nonsensical, our Alice dreams of her whimsical wedding with the Mad Hatter!"
I love the "playing card inspired" invitation that Darla of Darla Marie Designs created.
And . . . continuing with Christina's story behind the photo shoot before more photos . . .
"Her story begins as she dozes off while sitting under her favorite tree reading classic love stories. Upon awakening, she finds herself caught in a mad cyclone of playing cards. Amongst the maze of cards, she stumbles upon a delightful "playing card inspired" invitation for her wedding in the queen’s garden, followed by the tea party reception in Tulgey Woods. Although our mischievous Alice is running late to the ceremony, she decides to sneak a peek at her reception instead. Alice’s tea party is way beyond what she envisioned! Nothing too extravagant, just an elegant party for her, the Mad Hatter, Mr. Rabbit, and of course the Queen…personalized with all the details she loves! The dreamy palette of colors is inspired by some of her favorite things: the sea, blush, champagne, clouds, with pops of berry. The grand floral arrangement imitates the feel of her favorite tree with its mossy trunk and colorful mushroom scattered base. Suspended from the branches of this arrangement are floral filled teacups. A medley of other floral filled teapots, as well as her dearest books are scattered about the table. The place settings are pieced together using pieces from her great-grandmothers china collection. Since Alice adores all things sweet, a trio of yummy french macaroons are placed for each guest. But Alice’s favorite treat is a delicious cupcake, especially for her and her love to share! As Alice sits and admires her delightful party, she begins to daydream about her next adventure! Wonder where it will take her?" ---- Christina Wright, Simply Modern Weddings
