Storybook Love: Fairy Tale Wedding Ideas

We’ve fallen in complete love all over again with this fairy tale wedding coordinated and designed by Mary of Very Merry Events at Spence Vineyards. With glittering silver apples and butterflies mixed with buttery satin pink ribbons, this fairy tale wedding would make any girl’s heart beat just a little faster at the thought that this could be a reality on their own wedding day.

These glittered apples are cozily nestled in moss filled wooden boxes, awaiting when the guests find their names and places at each storybook themed table. A perfect detail for this fairy tale wedding!

Each escort card was written by hand by Jane Brenner. Her calligraphy is so perfect and was a great touch to our fairy tale wedding inspiration shoot.

This vignette setting was put together with vintage rentals from Hartmann Studios and Heritage & Craft! We love the idea of having your event designer set up small scenes for more whimsical and styled wedding portraits.

Rather than a traditional cake topper, these vintage time pieces and charms were a wonderfully whimsical addition to the wedding cake. Multiple levels of height was created by stacking the cake stand atop beautifully aged vintage books.

Hello, gorgeous! The bride swapped out her white gown for a more casual look with soft pink ruffles for this portion of the fairy tale wedding shoot. We love the idea of having a different look for your reception or portrait session because you get varying looks on the same day!
