If you're dreaming of a garden inspired wedding filled to the brim with sweet, girly details that will make your guests swoon...today is your very lucky day. The New England team of vendors headed up by Paper Moss and Megan Chapin Calligraphy, with photography by Public Image Photography and florals by Studio 539 Flowers, designed a Garden inspired shoot that will make your heart go pitter patter. Seriously. It's so stinking pretty, I kind of want to steal every last detail for my wedding re-do. My favorite part, aside from the insanely gorgeous invitation suite that Paper Moss crafted? The milk and cookies. I kind of think every wedding should have milk and cookie favors. To see TONS of additional details, click right here.

From Paper Moss...It has been quite the adventure bringing this fabulous inspiration board to life and we are thrilled to share it with all of you! Our photo shoot's theme, 'Vintage Country Chic', is a timeless juxtaposition of historical inspiration, elements of nature and a hint of sophistication. After sharing our vision with a power team of New England based wedding professionals, we set them loose to use their expertise and our vision came right into place.
We aimed to create a whimsical and romantic ambiance which was a perfect match for our jeweler and florist. We worked together to combine intricate details such as varying textures, bringing together antiques and sprinkling items that reflect the bride and groom throughout the scene. Our venue of choice was an old farmhouse in Connecticut that effortlessly enhanced all aspects of our shoot. (I mean, who wouldn't like a dresser or wedding cake in the middle of a field, right?) We fell in love with the wedding gown and its hints of vintage decor, beautifully paired with chandelier earrings. And the bridal bouquet? We think it speaks for itself.
And of course... the stationery. Keeping in mind that the invitations set the tone of the wedding itself, we wanted these to be unique to the Vintage Country Chic concept. The monogram key logo was partially inspired by a quote by Frederick Saunders that we recently heard at a wedding:
“My heart to you is given:
Oh, do give yours to me;
We'll lock them up together,
And throw away the key.”
Those words have stuck with us in the months since and while scavenging through antique markets upon a box of old fashioned keys, well... that sealed the deal! Paper Moss is always up for thinking outside the box, but in this case, we started with the box and worked around that. Invitations and coordinating handkerchiefs were printed on linen, while all other letter pressed enclosures tucked sweetly in a custom monogrammed muslin bag that encompassed the natural, country look we were aiming for. Sprigs of lavender and rosemary were placed throughout the wedding, and we wanted there to be a presence of that in the invites. Filling the boxes with lavender buds, we rolled the linen invitation and tied it with bakers twine, topping it off with vintage stamps and contrasting white calligraphy. (Who said you had to be a traditional bride to like calligraphy?) From writing on window panes to tags, it is the perfect final touch.
The planning and execution of this SMP opportunity was more fun than we could have imagined.
A HUGE and hearty SMP thank you to all of the vendors who participated in this shoot...
