Spruce Mountain Ranch Victorian inspiration shoot

February 21, 2012

Has it been chilly where you live? Here in LA, Winter isn’t quite ready to leave, so we thought this inspiration shoot would be fitting. Plus, we know there are a lot of you that are newly engaged and setting dates for the later part of the year. Hence the pretty pine cones, shades of grey and silver, and snowfall in Revel & Bloom‘s romantic Victorian styled shoot. What we’re loving most about this shoot – it feels modern while keeping classic touches – and it’s approachable, proving that a can of spray paint and a bit of a crafty hand can give your wedding a timeless look.

One of the running themes throughout the decor and design: the idea of a childhood crush that turned into true love and eventually marriage.

Each of the candle sticks were found at vintage shops and painted to match the color scheme.

For the reception table, we found a beautiful grey lace runner and incorporated a Victorian cameo into the centerpiece. We built the planter box and painted it grey. We loved using navy velvet to create a luxurious, romantic feel to the table. We found a lace overlay that we cut to make lace napkins and used beautiful, vintage plates and chargers, chairs and silverware. We spray painted pine cones in various tones, from light glitter to grey to invoke the wintery landscape that was just outside the doors of the lodge.
