Angel Inspired Wedding

angelic ceremony

Earlier today we shared a gorgeous bridal session from the recent Three Nails Photography workshop – and now we have the wedding! This styled wedding was based off this quote: “If I ever saw an angel, it was in your eyes.” How sweet! Three Nails Photography once again styled this shoot as well as photographed it. His goal for this shoot was to show how the groom looks at his bride – as a perfect beautiful angel. :) And so three sets of angel wings were crafted for the bridesmaids. All were made with real eagle feathers dipped in gold paint and sprinkled with gold glitter. They had braids going all around their head as their “halos.” Such a lovely and inspiring set of photos…

All of the gorgeous bouquets + boutonnieres were made by Three Nails Photography – entirely from dried flowers and skeleton leaves. The bride + bridesmaids are all wearing dresses by Samuelle Couture and the groom + groomsmen are in winter apparel from Zara, Asos, H&M, and TopMan.

The seating chart was a screen door pulled out of an abandoned house in the woods. They pulled out the old screen and replaced it with rows of vintage post cards stamped with the guests names.

The table was built and painted by Three Nails, and topped with antique crystal from the 1920s. The centerpiece contained deer + elk antlers, dried flowers, white birch tree candles and was sprinkled with lavender. A huge chandelier hung above the table made out of deer antlers.

  9. Wonderful! I love that particular tone of gold- not cheesey or tacky at all. It’s classic and romantic.

    Also, the name of the photography company- 3 nails? Religious? Very clever! I like it!
