Old, Borrowed & Blue

By Melissa

So lucky today to be joined by Calgary stylist Pink & Honey Event Styling who teamed up with Genevieve Renee Photographie to create an absolutely inspiring photoshoot filled with beautiful ceremony backdrops. You’re seeing this first here on Wedding Obsession. Enjoy.

Handmade creations add the most special touch to a wedding day. So for our love of all things sweet and crafty, we put together a ceremony backdrop inspiration shoot to encourage brides to get out their scissors and tape and create something handcrafted, simple and personal for their big day.

The ‘something old’ backdrop arose from an idea to use the outside of an old church as the setting for a ceremony. For a modern yet whimsical twist, we added jumbo balloons adorned with mixed lace accents and anchored with white ceramic bookends.

The ‘something borrowed’ backdrop was inspired by the simplicity and beauty of nature. We borrowed tree branches straight from the forest floor and built an archway, securing the branches together with fishing line. We handcrafted faux flowers using post-consumer recycled cream-colored paper for an added charming touch.

And finally, the ‘something blue’ backdrop came from our attraction to stately patterns and colors. A bold fabric choice and a giant antique frame was all it took to create this unique focal point for a beautiful indoor or outdoor ceremony.
