Vow Renewal Invitation set based on the Cinderella Invitation

Custom Pink Cinderella invitation set by Hand-Painted WeddingsCustomized projects come in all shapes and sizes. This one was a variation on the Cinderella Invitation set in Hand-Painted Weddings Shop. This invitation was for a happy couple who was going to have their vow renewal in magical Disneyland. The colors in this invitation changed from light blues to pinks, and the cards were printed on a pearlescent paper giving it a very ethereal shimmer. The outer envelope was also a beautiful pearlescent envelope to match. I love how this invitation came out!

Today is part 2 of the Cinderella inspired wedding which features the lovely, soft details of the table decor. To see part 1, click here. I love the textures that appear in this table styling created by Krista Leigh Hurst Photography. The delicate beaded table cloth overlay and the baby’s breath are a perfect match for the hand-painted ivy border in the menu and table number design. Please note that I did take the liberty of putting the sweet pumpkin carriage on the corner of the menus to add a bit of whimsy, but that element can be omitted if a bride is interested in a more subtle fairytale theme.

The Cinderella table looks stunning in an outdoor setting, but I also think this theme would look gorgeous in an old mansion, castle, or gothic-styled reception site. Themed weddings are so unique and fun. I love how the Cinderella inspired theme is filled with whimsy and translates so appropriately with the ethereal magic of weddings.

Have a magical weekend!

Cinderella shoot featured on Hand-Painted Weddings. Photos & Styling by Krista Leigh Hurst.Once upon a time (aka a few months ago), I was fortunate to be asked to join a few other talented wedding professionals on a styled Modern Cinderella photo shoot. The chance to work with other talent on a purely creative photo shoot is one of the reasons I love this industry. There is such a beautiful sense of camaraderie in working together to create art. The different styles and viewpoints each artist brings together truly create a masterpiece.

I provided the invitation, menu, table number and escort cards. Today’s post features the overall whimsical aesthetic of this shoot, along with some of the beautiful Cinderella themed details Krista came up with, such as the white pumpkin, the paper crown, the spool of thread, and of course, this gorgeous pale blue gown. I love how all of the light blues come together into this dreamy masterpiece.

This photo shoot was featured on the blog Bridal Musings, who put together a gorgeous post that you simply must check out to see more photos!

Also, in tomorrow’s post I will be featuring the Cinderella inspired tablescape details. See you here tomorrow!

In the Studio: Cinderella Invitation

April 24, 2013By AllisonIn the Studio

Cinderella Invitation by Hand-Painted Weddings Cinderella Invitation by Hand-Painted WeddingsLately I have been on a “Once Upon A Time” kick. You know…the ABC tv series about all the fairytales that succumb a curse and are sent to the real world. I am loving this show; watching a few episodes daily!

In the spirit of this show is this invitation I designed a few months ago in conjunction with a creative collaboration with a few other talented wedding vendors (more on that later in the week).

The hand-painted Cinderella Invitation would be perfect for the couple who adores this tv series or has a fondness for the timeless, whimsical fairytales of our childhoods.

Note: The Cinderella Invitation is available to order under the Shop Invitations section.
