Featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs Blog for our DIY Birdcage themed wedding shoot

We had the pleasure of creating an amazing photo shoot for Elizabeth Anne Designs Blog that was featured in her Inspired Creations Contest. With the help of the every so talented Jade McCully Photography and Emma J Designs we created a wedding concept incorporating birds and birdcages that is so whimsical and fun!

Adorable framed signs showed the way to the birdseed wreaths that decorated the entrance to The Davenport House.

The look is sophisticated yet relaxed and handmade and the palette of pink, peach, purple and gold is perfect for a springtime wedding. A bird logo, as shown on the invitations by Emma J Designs above, made its appearance in all of the details.

A birdbath at the entrance held programs and birdseed in customized stamped muslin bags, that woudl be used to shower the couple as they exited the aisle as the new Mr. and Mrs.

Escort cards were hung with clothespins from a large antique frame backed by chicken wire, and birdcages and ribbon were the theme of the day!

For the table: The main focus was the wooden dowel bird mobile that hung above the table. We used different sizes of mason jars for the vases and cute bird pictures in frames as a base/charger for the plates. Stuffed birds in different patterns sat on each place setting and the matching bird house from the place cards hung from the backs of the chairs.
