Just because you want to celebrate the joy of marriage with an intimate ceremony doesn't mean you can't go all out in the pretty department.  Love Life Studios and The Stylish Soiree put together this awesome vintage inspiration for two with beautiful wildflowers, lacy details and vintage pieces.  The setting would be perfect for just two or two hundred.  Click here to see all the details!

From Love Life Studios...The concept behind this shoot was a summer garden party elopement celebration for the newlyweds. We like to think that even if the bride and groom aren't planning a huge affair for 150 guests, they can still celebrate their union (and of course, their personal style) with a beautiful dinner set for two and plenty of lovely photos to commemorate the day.

The tablescape was created with a mix of new and vintage decor items in a color scheme that included taupe, cream, and shades of purple. A small white writer's desk serves as the makeshift dinner table with two wooden bistro chairs pulled up for casual outdoor seating. A lavender table runner bathes the white desk in a wash of color, while lace placemats give the tablescape a dainty, delicate feel. The floral arrangements were placed in a mix of vintage amber glassware and brown apothecary bottles. Purple anemones, lavender, cabbage, sweet pea and thistle were used to create the 'just picked' look that suited our relaxed garden party inspiration.

The bride and groom's place settings were adorned with their names crafted out of copper artist wire and newsprint paper flowers, as well as two sprigs of lavender held together with a blue hand dyed silk ribbon. We created a festive signature drink that matched the color scheme of the elopement dinner; a blackberry sorbet float made with two scoops of sorbet topped off with sparkling pink lemonade - light, summery and refreshing, perfect for summer.
