Wrap It Up Pretty!
November 4, 2011
What a crazy fabulous week it's been here at SMP! Not only did we bring you your usual dose of fabulous wedding inspiration, but we brought you an entire day dedicated to all things modern! And we're not quite ready to say goodbye to this fab modern inspired party just yet, so before we leave you for the weekend, we just had to share this phenomenal photo shoot by Champagne NW, captured perfectly by June Lion. This pretty little gem just goes to show you that modern comes in all shapes and sizes and sometimes it's as simple as updating a classic look. We're totally head over heels for this one, especially the cute chalkboard photo booth backdrop. Click here for more!

From June Lion: Myself and a team of other wedding vendors got together to put together this unique winter wedding with lots of DIY original details and indie appeal.  For the shoot I crafted a ringbox, wedding veil, reception hairpiece, necklace made from lace, yarn branch chandelier, cake topper with a photo of a classic plastic bride and groom, and a chuppah-like alternative to a wedding arch made with fabric streamers. Other fun decor details include a record player, logs, white painted frames for the backdrop, big white balloons, chalkboard that the guests would also write message on for the polaroid photo booth-guestbook.  The bride has a dress change for the reception so 2 beautiful dresses from local Portland designer Claire La Faye.
