I know we have seen a lot of Alice in Wonderland shoots, but this one has a purple spin and we know you all love purple. So we had to share. (; I’m also a sucker for a Rivini Gown.
Read on to hear from the creative team!
A darling “Welcome to our Wonderland” sign hung from a tree in the entrance of the garden. The sign was created using hand white-washed wood that was laser etched with Victorian graphics.
Lindsey Luxa of Dragonfly Custom Design created the invitation suite. Once opened, an antique pewter key gives you a hint that you are in for something magical. Lindsey nestled the beautiful invitation in a silk box constructed of deep purple and iridescent green silks. The body of the invitation was set on a deep purple silk pad with a layer of iridescent green silk, natural fiber paper and dark purple paper. To further tie it into Alice in Wonderland, she used subtle clocks and teapot imagery. Guests are also reminded, “Don’t be late for a Very Important Date”.
A garden tea party underneath a rooftop peppered with manzanita branches, crystals and orchids is right up my alley. For our Alice in Wonderland Photo Shoot, we were so inspired by our environment that we decided to bring the natural elements of the garden not only onto the table but above the table as well. In addition to our organic chandelier, we created an natural structure made of driftwood, intense purple hydrangea clusters and ivory roses paved along the edge. For our charming setting, we scoured all over Miami to find unique vintage tea sets. Mixing and matching sets adds so much character to a table – perfect for a bohemian chic vibe. To top it off, we set an antique pendulum clock indicating the table number for that Alice in Wonderland touch.
