Celestial Styled Shoot

When Megan reached out to me about collaborating on a celestial themed shoot, I knew I was in. I had never done this theme before and I already had some ideas in mind for it. Luckily, Megan and I have similar styles so when she sent me the mood board it was like I created it myself. Plus, the vendor list she sent over was incredible and I was so excited to work with new industry professionals that I hadn’t met yet!
First, we started out with a full invitation suite and printed materials like a menu for the day-of. I used varying shades of blue for the envelopes and dark rust colors for the details in the invites. I also created an envelope liner with stars on it for a subtle tie right when you open the envelope.
For the dinner menus, I kept it simple with black writing on white card stock and lined the edges with gold foil. This allows for the place setting to be the main focus, but also have a fun menu! I found these acrylic stars and tied ribbon at the top for place cards!
Because you can never have too many paper details, I also had these starry place cards that we used as well! These would typically be folded in half to stand on their own and sitting with each guest.
I wanted to create some fun chair backs for the bride and groom, but chairs we used didn’t allow for these to sit in the way we wanted. We put them at the base of the table in front of the chairs, so they could be seen from the front.
For the table numbers, I used black acrylic with white vinyl, then added some gold foil on the top and bottom opposite corners to match some of the other details. These turned out amazing and I’m hoping someone will want this idea for their wedding day too. They were then stood up with a simple wooden block.
And for the real star of the show: this sign! You know when you make something and you’re just so obsessed with it? That’s this baby right here. I used the same black acrylic from the table numbers and hung it on this copper stand. After Brooke from Wildflower Design Studio added her magic to the top corner, it all came together so perfectly. I love the way the golden light reflects on the acrylic.
It was so awesome to be able to use a real-life couple in our shoot. It made the emotions of the entire day feel so real and forced. They were so sweet and excellent models considering we literally made them climb mountains.
I mean how good is that light on the photos below? I love that we got the moon in there and it reflected the light so perfectly off this sign! Plus, look at their cute pup. He was such a good boi through out the entire shoot day! The ‘to the moon and back’ sign matches the same black acrylic as the other signage, including the gold leaf around the edges. This sign is available for purchase as well, click here!
