Floral Staircase Decor is the key to Amazing Fairy Tale Wedding Photos
Thanks to the stunning white and gold wedding invitations and hand lettering by Victoria Fiaretti Creative Design, this gorgeous flatlay lives up to the European chateau style of the stunning Pennsylvania wedding venue at Vinoski Winery. Vintage foil-pressed books, antique keys and luxurious tassel details added to the elegant design. A yellow gold double halo engagement ring from Henne Jewelers was a stunning and unique way to add sparkle with a round diamond!
The vision for this shoot was to create inspiration for couples interested in elopements and micro-weddings who still want an incredible wedding without sacrificing style and luxury just because they have a smaller guest count.
The shoot’s planner and designer, Jeannene Lillie Events, was intentional in creating a design that would inspire a feeling of European elegance highlighted with the softness and excitement of Spring. A delicate palette of soft pinks, ivory, and cream cloaked in luxury textiles and delicate gold details exudes refinement from every element.
The A-line wedding dress from One White Lane Bridal Gallery paired a classic tulle skirt with romantic lace cap sleeves, with pearl adorned bridal shoes to add to the European beauty of the bride’s look!
The chateau style setting at Vinoski Winery offered beautiful locations for the ceremony and photographable moments – the elegant terrace was a perfect place for an intimate vow exchange. May Chester Designs echoed the shape of the terrace railing with a flower arch filled with greenery and blooms in white and blush pink. The ceremony flowers were creatively creatively designed to be repurposed throughout the wedding and would make appearances at the reception and as stunning staircase decor!
The real married couple, Zachary and Megan, shared wedding vows, letters to each other, and reflections on their past five years together as they stood enclosed by the ceremony arrangements.
The florist repurposed the ceremony flower into this arrangement that added climbing blossoms to the base of the reception table. An intimate reception is a great chance to add details, like the scalloped edge linen napkins, gold flatware, and gold rimmed crystal champagne flutes.
These stunning calligraphy place cards are a beautiful detail to a classic champagne flute!
The couple toasted their sweet ‘vow renewal’ with a Vinoski Winery rosé and slices of berry and almond cake!
The linen French Country chairs and repurposed ceremony flowers added a lovely detail to the airy white and gold decor of this beautiful chateau style reception! Alex Robba Cake created a breathtaking wedding cake with hexagonal tiers. The watercolor effect and molded buttercream details added an architectural elegance that suited the Old World venue, while the sugar flowers and vines added subtle peach and green color to the handcrafted cake topper.
Cheers to this gorgeous vintage bar cart! Among the stunning details were cocktails garnished with star fruit and an antique silver serving tray to distribute slices of cake.
The ceremony flowers made another appearance as gorgeous staircase decor! The curving stone stairs at the winery was a natural portrait backdrop, and adding the romantic greenery and flower arrangements turned it into a showpiece! Such a stunning way to add a personal wedding detail the natural beauty of a venue!
