A Mediterranean-style inspiration shoot

categories Details + Decor, Wedding Ideas

Good morning everyone! Let’s start the week off with a mediterranean inspired wedding shoot from Alchemy Fine Events, shot by the super lovely Jill Thomas. Seems like the perfect inspiration for a pretty spring week. Love the bride’s fish tail braid and gold bangles.

Pretty blues and whites, plus a goddess-y dress are the perfect nods to something Greek.

If you love the look of vintage glass, skip the antique stores and head to the bric-a-brac section of your local thrift stores. You might be able to outfit your whole wedding reception for a few hundred dollars, instead of paying $5 – $10 per piece.

Beautiful photos, Jill! Thanks for sharing with our readers, Vanessa!

  1. Wedding planning may seem like a very overwhelming task to embark upon when you first start to think about it. So what you need to do is to break it down into smaller more manageable parts. Give yourself a realistic timeline to plan your wedding. Unless you have a particular date in mind that you absolutely want to meet, then feel free to enjoy your engagement for a while and discuss with your partner what would work best as far as setting a date
