Happy Halloween : Twilight Wedding Inspired Photo Shoot

Happy Halloween - I have an amazing treat for you all today. It's a gorgeous Twilight inspired photo shoot that was sent in by Melissa of Truly Chic Inspirations who planned this photo shoot alongside Sandy from Firefly Confections.

I will now turn the blog over to Melissa who will explain more about the shoot.

We are both avid Twilight fans and our inspiration came from the Breaking Dawn wedding.  We were lucky enough to team up with such a talented photographer, Janelle from Janelle's Photography, who made our vision come to life. Janelle not only captured our vision but incorporated the perfect model for this shoot. 

Using the last name "Cullen" was key for us.  The "Cullen" crest cookies were created by Sandy (Firefly Confections), the "Cullen" cake banner was created by Meli from Blush + Jelly, and the "Cullen" crest wine label was created especially for us by Sandy's mother. 

We didn't want this to be all about deep reds and black so we took some time in finding white and silver touches to give more elegance to the wedding theme. The wedding invitation and place cards were must have items and Kristina of Uptown Girl Designs gave us an amazing design (she is a fellow Twilight fanatic as well).

I was lucky to come across the vintage photos and candle sticks at an antique flea market while on vacation this summer and Sandy took some time in finding the perfect plates.
