If you’ve been reading the Inspired Bride for a while, you’ll probably remember this inspiration board that I designed a while back. Well, I loved it so much that I recruited some of my favorite people – Shauna of Shauna Younge Dessert Tables, Amy of Design 8 Days, and Jonny and Michelle of Paper Antler – to help me execute and shoot it. With the help of hair and makeup guru Rene Rattler, our shoot at MPLS Photo Center became everything I hoped for and more. I LOVE the results, and especially since it’s my first time styling something of this scale, I hope you do, too.
Before I sign off and leave you with this eye candy, I want to say a special thank you to a list of folks outside our team who donated time or resources for our project: my mother-in-law, Kathy, who created the custom made chevron napkins we all fawned over; FiftyFlowers, a sponsor of the Inspired Bride, who provided us with the wholesale flowers I used to style the arrangements; the Twinery, who donated gorgeous black and white twine as well as pink and white twine for our paper goods and dessert table details; Crystal Kluge, whose impeccable calligraphy was used in the paper goods design as well as on our envelopes; Flutter Boutique, who kindly lent us our wardrobe; and the wonderful vendors who donated product to fill out our dessert table – Bake It Pretty, Hammond’s, Oh Nuts!, Cocoa & Fig, and Laura’s Candy. My thanks last, but not least, to 100 Layer Cake for featuring this shoot today.

I’m in LOOOVE with those chevron napkins! They’re fantastic. They would absolutely make my day. Where did you get those?
Hello everyone! My amazingly talented mother in law made them. Everyone’s asking, so she should probably go into business making them 🙂
Mary Lynn says
Nevermind, I finally calmed down enough to read in the post that your MIL made them. Kudos, they look gorgeous.!
Hah! Well, I just emailed her. She’s thinking of doing some for sale, so sit tight. If it happens, it’ll be sometime soon, and I’ll let everyone know on the blog 🙂
