Fabulously Wedding Photo Shoot: A Charming + Romantic Spring Wedding

As you know, we are showcasing the entries for our 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).

Next up we have a very fresh and bright tablescape shoot with a yellow and white color palette. Melissa Osborne of All About You Productions Wedding and Event Planning in Michigan, was inspired the freshness of Spring. Be sure to leave your comments if you are in love with Melissa's entry. Your votes can help her get to Backstage Bridal Pro Academy!
 Melissa shares how she married Fabulous and Graceful in her bright and sweet shoot: "I chose to go with yellow and white for the color palette. I decided that I wanted something charming, roman-tic, and soft. My shoot naturally had a spring feel to it."
"I opted to do a mock sweetheart table. My whole inspiration for the color and design were these yellow bird cage candle holders that I found at Michaels. I painted wood letters yellow and covered them with glitter to make Mr. and Mrs. banners for the chairs. I used a yellow table cloth with a white runner that has butterflies on it. I could not find yellow chargers anywhere so I hand-painted green chargers that I found at Michaels. I used white plates with a vintage yellow napkin. I made the menu cards with white cardstock and a shimmery yellow border. I used 3 milk glass vases that I found at the Salvation Army and filled them with fresh spring flowers. I hung 5 balls above the table that I made with styrofoam, fabric, and tulle."
"For the guest tables I would use rectangular tables with yellow linens and white chivari chairs. I would continue with the same chargers, tableware, and menus that are on the sweetheart table. I would line up a bunch of the milk glass vases down the center of the tables with yellow craspedia."
DIY: Styrofoam ball instructions: 
1. Take styrofoam balls and poke holes in them with a pencil. 
2. Cut different size squares out of any fabric you want to use. 
3. Put some tacky glue in a hole. 
4. Twist fabric square on a pencil (the eraser side) and stick it in the hole. 
5. Repeat steps 3-5 until desired fullness.
Melissa used the following resources to create this look:
