Pink tea party style wedding: Salma + Ziyaad

categories Details + Decor, DIY Wedding, Real Weddings

Happy Monday, readers! We’ve got a lovely bunch of photos for you today from Salma & Ziyaad (Zee)’s quaint tea party-themed wedding. It’s romantic, cozy and feminine (lots of pink!) with loads of DIY and homemade touches. Of course, no tea party is complete without baked goods, and honestly, the desserts in this alone are enough to put us over the edge.

Let’s begin!

These gorgeous invites were hand-stitched, water colored and stamped by Mom & younger sister.

Few things in life are more whimsical than a rope swing. And how stunning does Salma look? Love all those fabulous accessories – the jeweled sandals, fabric flower in the hair (made by the bride’s sister), ah, so pretty.

The postcards hanging in the window are a simple yet brilliant addition, guests “mailed” their notes to the couple using a wooden letterbox (made by dad) in lieu of a guestbook. That’s a cute idea right there.

The tabletop details are amazing – soda pop escort cards inspired by our diy tutorial, glass bottles wrapped in paper doilies, twine and ribbon. Never underestimate the power of a single carnation!

Here come the desserts.  Macaroons, mini-cakes, and more…Salma & Zee are major foodies &  sent guests home with a unique favor – a recipe book filled with their faves.

A seriously beautiful wedding for a seriously beautiful couple. Congratulations, Salma & Zee!

  25. Salaam, congratulations! Beautiful wedding… Loved it…

  26. I just adore her gown! How sweet and romantic!

  27. Alison: the groom’s corsage was a wedding gift from the designer who made the bridal gown! His name is George Wu and his site is http://www.georgewu.com.au . If you look closely you’ll see it matches the lace flowers on the gown 😉

  28. george wu rocks, her gown is GORGEOUS!

  31. They’re such a cute couple! I simply love how her dress is conservative but it fits her like a glove. It looks like a semi formal attire but it’s actually her wedding dress!!

  32. her dress is so refreshingly beautiful.

  33. I adore Jonas’s work! Every image was breathtaking.

  34. A big thank you to 100layer cake for featuring our wedding and thanks to all for your lovely comments :)

    Lauren – the sandals are by Giuseppe Zanotti and were a wedding gift from my shoe-obsessed sister :) Not sure if the same ones are still around, but he tends to do a lot of jeweled sandals and heels so you’d probably be able to find a similar pair online or at a local designer shoe store.

  35. Absolutely stunning! Congrats to the happy couple, and well done to everyone involved in putting such a lovely event together! :)

  36. I love how this wedding screams cozy! Love love love

  37. Everywhere I go Jonas is there. At least he never disapoints!
