Bibliophile: A Vintage Storybook Wedding in Peach & Teal

This pretty-in-peach vintage book wedding styled shoot was inspired by a simple business card from Star Noir Studio, showing an old camera in muted teal with a soft peach logo. Custom Love Gifts styled the “Our Love Story” shoot at Dara’s Garden, the perfect setting for a vintage inspired outdoor wedding in Knoxville, TN.


The love story theme begins with an organza ribbon wrapped Shakespeare hardback book invitation from Star Noir Studio.   The book theme also inspired a Table of Contents inspired seating chart and an oversized guest book where guests can sign as contributing authors to the couple’s love story. Vintage hardback books from Vintage Inspirations perfectly complemented the book theme with antique-look lanterns that lit the cozy little reading nook for two.   A garden path and reading nook were the perfect setting for a first look photo.


The tablescape included faux letterpress parts, scrabble letters and a book page table runner under a floral centerpiece including peach cabbage roses and teal tinted hydrangeas from LB Floral.  Event Rentals by Rothchild provided gold chivari chairs as well as gold-rimmed china we mixed with vintage plates and gold dipped utensils.


Sweet Beginnings by Elaine offered vintage look golden cakes stands dripping with crystals and a greenery-draped wedding cake with fresh peaches for cake topper.  Book pages wrapped around each tier are secured with miniature books painted in gold.   Mini book page wrapped journals served as unique handmade bridesmaids gifts and peach pie in a jar favors with wooden forks tied in peach satin ribbon acted as guest favors.  Toasting glasses and small votive candles carried out the bibliophile theme with a touch of gold ribbon for an elegant feel.


The ceremony site included color coordinated sashes, antique look lanterns down the aisle giant torn book page at the altar.   A love story inspired exit was planned with paper cones full heart shaped hand cut confetti in peach, teal, and old book pages.  A perfect honeymoon getaway photo op was planned with MR & MRS letters and vintage suitcases and a gilded L-O-V-E photo prop.


The Wedding Market provided a birdcage veil,  tea length wedding dress with peach ribbon detail, a pearl bracelet from Jewelry by Grace and muted teal statement necklace that created an eclectic feel for the bride’s attire.  Keeping with the vintage appeal, hair and make-up artist Rachel Dee added a classic up-do with braid detail.  Small handmade book page roses highlighted the theme in a beautiful bouquet from LB Floral.  The groom’s ensemble included an eclectic mix of peach plaid on stripes and mismatched greys.
