Hill City Bride | Lynchburg Wedding Bridal Blog » A Lynchburg, VA Wedding and Bridal Blog...

Well, this wedding is definitely one for the books. Honestly, it was one that I heard about even before it happened because the vendors were so excited about how unique it would be. Once I saw the photos, it definitely didn’t disappoint! Lauren and Danny were so creative with their wedding day… down to every little detail. They used local vendors and Etsy to its fullest to find those special touches to incorporate things for the perfect steampunk wedding.

Lauren even utilized her interest in photography (note her camera tattoo!) into the day by incorporating her camera collection. Mini gears were made out of chocolate for the reception, and the cake is amazing! You will also notice that Danny and Lauren used a handfasting cord at their wedding, which is an outward showing of the couple coming together. So fun!

I know that you will have fun with this wedding today, and be sure to take a peek at the full vendor listing below. Enjoy!

  • Linda Hall - Love Is In The Air - Thanks for the shout out, Jennifer! This wedding was so much fun to design and put together. Lauren and Danny loved stepping out of the box and let us really use our creativity. They added so many of their own touches which truly made this a unique wedding that their guests will always remember.

Get ready for an absolutely gorgeous wedding! The color palette of dusty shale and coral combine perfectly to make for a very sweet affair… not to mention how lovely the bride, Aurora, is. Gorgeous! This couple met at college in St. Louis, and they have family all over the world. The perfect solution for their nuptials was to just have it right in the town they met, and it turned out beautifully. They had a clear day for their classic coral wedding! Take a peek into Nathan and Aurora’s day, which was photographed by Dana Tate, Wedding Photographer.

Vendors:

I adore this rock and roll e-session for so many reasons. It’s just different… the colors, the street art, and the vibe of this couple are all just perfect. Plus, I love the fact that they used their surroundings so well. Just take notice how they used simple (and some vibrant!) pieces of their city such as staircases, walls and even their reflections. I picture this couple just taking a leisurely walk with their photographer, PhotoHouse Films, and just soaking it all in. I want you to do the same… soak in the loveliness and subtle creativity of this session. Enjoy!

Did you see our most recent styled shoot? If not, click here! The entire shoot was inspired by a Wedding Paper Divas invitation called “Exquisite Leaves”. Beautiful! We had several DIY projects including this one which is a unique way to save an invitation. We will show you the in-tact invitation first and then proceed with our creative 3-d invitation DIY!

Supplies:

  • Vintage frame
  • 3 Wedding invitations
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Sharpie marker to match the background color of your invitation (if it is a thick invitation)*

Simple instructions:

  1. Cut out the scrapbook paper to fit the frame.
  2. Using two of the invitations, cut out pieces of the embellishments (in our case we chose the leaves).
  3.  *If necessary, run the Sharpie around the edge of the cut invitation pieces. The inside of my invitation was white, so it was necessary for me to use a black marker to get rid of the white edge.
  4. Using the hot glue gun, glue the decorative elements to the in-tact invitation in layers. The goal is to have these pieces 3-dimensional, so do not press down on the hot glue dots you use. Also be sure to be very neat with the glue when gluing.
  5. Once the pieces are dry. Glue the full invitation to the scrapbook paper.
  6. Insert the scrapbook paper into the frame. If the frame has glass, place the glass behind the scrapbook paper to keep it in tact.

What a fun, easy keepsake idea! To see the true dimension of this project, please view the photos below.

  • Andrea - The Pink Bride - Love this DIY guide so much! What a fun way to showcase your wedding invitation as artwork.

Did you catch our new style shoot? If not, check out our original posting here and some DIY projects here. So fun!! I was SO honored to have Liz from Sincerely, Liz: Photography capturing images, BUT we also had a few guest photographers present. I loved that! Going through the photos and seeing different perspectives was… interesting. What captivated some, others passed by.

Today I am excited to share a selection of images from some of our guest photographers. It’s a lengthy post, but honestly… I could not narrow some of the selections down. Enjoy what we have for you today!
