We have the most beautiful wedding with handmade details to share with you today! When wedding photographers Beaumonde Originals capture a wedding, they do it in such a way that it truly feels like you’re there.
This wedding features a behind-the-scenes “First Look”, smiles under rainy umbrellas, an elegantly-decorated ceremony, a fun wedding reception, and even a carousel! You’ll love to incorporate some of these handmade details — such as a guest book alternative and wedding cake flowers — into your own wedding day.
And let me just begin by saying this is one of the sweetest couples ever. Their smiles tell it all — they are so happy to be married! And I love everything about Carla’s dress: long lace sleeves, floral appliques, short length, and those pointed toe ankle-strap flats? Stunning!
To kick things off, there is an adorable First Look, complete with a twirl. :) You’ll love it! The Historic Smithville Inn in New Jersey was the perfect setting for a fun night of food, drinks, and dancing. Enjoy!
Real Wedding: Carla and Jimmy
They are the cutest!
I love the umbrellas… remember, if it rains on your wedding day, just use fun bubble umbrellas like these!
The bridal bouquet is incredible! Pink peonies and eucalyptus? Yes, please!
Here they are… MARRIED!
Check out their venue: The Historic Smithville Inn! It looks incredible, all decorated for the holidays with red bows, greenery, and twinkle lights.
The decorations at the reception were elegant and lovely; pillar candles shone brightly above the tables along with greenery and hanging candlelight holders. The place settings had gold chargers, hand-written place cards, elegant floral arrangements.
The fireplace made a nice mantle for displaying family photos; the hearth made the space look extra-cozy.
Yes, there was even a carousel!
They used a fun guest book alternative: Jenga blocks! Guests signed their names directly onto the wood blocks with sweet messages; after the wedding, Carla and Jimmy can play the classic game and read notes from their guests. (If you want to recreate this at your wedding, use this classic set and have guests sign with these markers; they won’t smudge + work great on wood.)
Congratulations to the newlyweds! We wish you a lifetime of happiness. Thank you so much to Cathie and Al of BeauMonde Originals for sharing these wedding photographs with us.
