Love Letter Wedding Inspiration

simple and colorful wedding ideas

Inspired by love letters from a golden era, this inspirational shoot will leave you wishing for fewer text messages and more pen and paper. We promise you will fall in love with the simple and clean look of the paper suite Holly Thomas Design created for this shoot – the exquisite calligraphy is to die for! Just as great, if not better, is the gorgeous location. Set in the middle of a fabulously colorful wildflower garden in Norther Michigan, you can’t help but dream of warm summer nights.

Don’t forget to check out the full gallery here to see even more of this love letter wedding inspiration. Beautifully captured by ElizaJean Photography in the amazing Hooper’s Farm Gardens.

From Sincerely, Ginger Weddings & Events:
Our paper designer put a thoughtful suite together, which included a “love letter” as a place card for each guest that held an inspiring quote. Sincerely, Ginger was born out of a love letter that my grandma gave to my grandpa the day before their wedding, and my grandpa gave me that same letter the day before mine. It was the sweetest gesture, and was the perfect story to inspire my business name. We tied the “love letter” together with the oh-so lovely Frou Frou Chic Ribbon.

For this styled shoot, we wanted to emphasize the natural beauty of Northern Michigan. The shoot took place at Hooper’s Farm Gardens on Old Mission Peninsula. We shot in a wildflower garden, and I was inspired by the colorful, natural, late summer blooms paired with subtle glamour, like gold chivari chairs and chargers.

This shoot was also an ode to my grandma, Ginger, who I named my business after. It’s just the type of party she would’ve thrown, with big bold blooms, champagne, and lots of dessert!

    Beautiful. I had my own wedding in that yard. So nice to see a beautiful place get notice. Also a variety of small businesses put together in such a tasteful way. Small business owners put so much more into what they do. This is the way to spend hard earned money, by giving it to people who take pride and care in their crafts and services.
