When you follow a rabbit down it’s rabbit hole, you might just get a whimsical wedding out of it! Inspired by Alice and her adventures, a group of talented Tennessee vendors put their heads together to create a fantastic day. Photographer Chastidyi Parrott breaks down all the details:
There is nothing better than a whimsical wedding! So when we teamed up with Southern Sirens for a series of storybook inspired shoots, Custom Love Gifts & Events couldn’t wait to join in on the Alice in Wonderland theme. This wedding opened doors to whimsy and a little avant-garde style, perfect for a unique venue like the Knoxville Zoo.
We started with eggplant purple linen with rosettes from Campbell Tent & Party Rentals and paired them with a giant teapot overflowing with flowers and greenery from Melissa Timm Designs. A mix of floral arrangements and brightly frosted cupcakes in gold-rimmed tea cups from Vintage Inspirations added the perfect details. Spray-painting inexpensive clocks in silver was an easy DIY project that made the Mr. and Mrs. seating extra special.
The cake from Sweet Beginnings By Elaine featured a mix of pearls, vintage brooches, and even a miniature looking glass with a tiny teacup and a hand-crafted love cake topper. A dessert table featured mini key lime pies, brownies, and red velvet cookies from Bradford Catered Events and honey pot favors with vintage tags. The dress from Wedding Wonderland included a delicate lace neckline that flows down the back of the dress into a pool of soft organza and tulle. Our groom’s attire included a pocket watch similar to the design on the invitations.
