Fabulous Wedding Photo Shoot: A Return To Innocence

As I wind down the fantastic Annual Backstage Bridal Pro Academy Scholarship Contest. Wedding Pros from across the United States submitted entries for a chance to win a full scholarship to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy this September at the number one resort in the nation, Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, California where they will join other wedding professionals in elevating their wedding planning business at THE best educational experience around. (no passport required).

I am thrilled to share with you a super cute shoot that reminds me so much of the Little Rascals. Danielle Pasternak of Danielle Pasternak Wedding Coordinator in Pennsylvania, was inspired miniaturized items and a nod to childhood and the wedding dreams of a little girl. Consider this a glimpse at her dream wedding through the eyes of her youth. Be sure to leave your comments if you are in love with Danielle's entry. Your votes can help her get to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy!



Danielle weaves a magical story on how she translated Fabulous and Graceful: "A big trend we are seeing in the wedding world are miniature-sized items with a nod to our child-hood. Finger foods, cake pops, mashed potato stations, and cupcakes are all starting to wipe out seven-layer cakes and twice baked potatoes. Why is this happening? I see all of these items as things that provided comfort in our youth."
"The full tablescape came together using vintage china pieces, stunning gold flatware, mismatched chairs and stemware along with Grandma’s lace doilies to represent the Bride. The Groom’s taste came through in the centerpieces with candles, wooden crates, a large branch structure and some Spanish moss. To add some more sparkle and coordinate with the gold flatware, we glittered a wooden “3” to represent the table number. To greet each guest was a lovely cupcake because sometimes dessert can come first. On the menu for dinner was petite shrimp, grilled cheese bites with cream of tomato sips, a little spaghetti and meatball and a spoonful of mac."
"The sweetheart table was designed using a vintage coffee table (just the right size) and a blush pink, vintage loveseat. The flowers were incorporated to match the bouquet of the Bride while candles were added to the groom’s side to tie in to the larger tablescape. Plates were raised onto small stands and two bite-sized cookies awaited their arrival."
"After dinner, there would be some chatting and discussing held in the Milk and Cookie Lounge. More vintage sofas were brought in as well as a stack of old suitcases that were formed to make a coffee table. We had several different kinds of cookies to be enjoyed with a cold glass of white and/or chocolate milk."

"Once the guests had their fill of cookies, they were invited to share a dance with their loved one and indulge in the sweet display complete with cake pops and miniature cakes. This is also where we decided to use old, metal letterpress letters to spell out “Grace & Fab”."
"Overall, this shoot was truly about the innocent and soft views of what a wedding should be through the eyes of a child. To me, there isn’t anything more graceful or fabulous than that."
