Sunflower Wedding Invitations & Other Unique Stationary from Basic Invite

I’m going to sound totally cliche saying this… but as a photographer I find details beautiful! Whether it’s a brides hand squeezing her dad’s tux during the father/daughter dance or a vase full of fresh flowers on a reception table…. I LOVE DETAILS! But i’m not the only one….

Images of wedding decor are easily the most Pinned and searched images by engaged couples JUST LIKE YOU! So when I photograph a wedding… I want to make sure I capture each and every one of those details that you’ve been working on for months!

So I make sure my timeline allows just the right amount of time for me to style my couples’ rings, flowers, ribbons, fabric swatches, and anything else that inspired their day! This makes my photographer heart so incredibly happy! What can I say… I like pretty things! #sorrynotsorry

But one of my VERY favorite details to photograph that is often left out is the invitation!

I love looking at the wording, the fonts, the colors, the texture, and the style that the couple has chosen to be the first representation of their day to everyone they know! So when Basic Invite invited me to partner with them, I knew it would be the perfect fit! Because not only are their products amazing… but they are giving my brides a discount! (Keep scrolling for some sample images and a discount code at the end!)

As a former bride and a current photographer, I’ll be the first to say that every detail of your day matters! It should say something! It should encompass who you are as a couple! And Basic Invite is the PERFECT place to find that!

Why?

I’m glad you asked! :)

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their ACTUAL INVITATION! That way everything looks exactly how you want it— down to even the tiniest detail.

Style

Flowers are one of the main elements of most weddings. Flowers have the ability to brighten any room or venue and have the power to take a room from ordinary to extraordinary. Particular flowers convey particular emotions! One type of flower that has been showing up for many of my weddings is the sunflower! Sunflowers are the perfect summer flower and have always been a favorite among many brides.

The bright yellow petals are sunny and cheerful, while the dark centers add a touch of drama. And while sunflowers are the perfect complement to a rustic, country-themed wedding when they're skillfully paired with other flowers and greenery, they can also take on a much more formal look when paired with some cream colored stock blossoms!

But there are more ways to incorporate flowers into your wedding celebration than the traditional way! And one of those is through your invitations! These Bridal Shower Invitations Sunflower are the perfect way to tie together your wedding day with all the celebrations beforehand! Not to mention the matching Wedding Invitations! Their matching sets are the perfect way to string your bridal experience together from bridal shower to thank you card.

Easy Button

So, while they’re website doesn’t have an actual big, red easy button that we can push… it does make things as simple as possible! Basic Invite knows that Brides have a lot on their plate…. that’s why they offer products like these all-in-one send and seal wedding invitations. The RSVP can be easily detached and sent PLUS guest addresses are printed right on the front so envelopes aren’t needed! (WOOT, WOOT!)

However if the invitation you choose does require an envelope… don’t worry! You can use Basic Invite’s free address collection service to request your addresses with just three simple steps. Share a link, collect addresses, and get FREE ENVELOPE PRINTING! (Can I get an Amen!?!?!)

Featured on Big Day Made- Blaine & Jordan's Romantic White Wedding in Springfield, Illinois

I am so excited to share with you this beautiful white wedding at Springfield House of Prayer and The Rail Golf Course in Springfield, Illinois. There is a lot I could say about this wedding day, for example:

1.) This is the perfect example of a budget wedding done RIGHT

2.) These are color scheme #goals... all that white made everything so bright & airy and fresh.

3.) I can't believe those flowers are fake

4.) The CONSTANT outdoor rain and freezing temps during the entire day made outdoor pics of the entire party not possible, however, the pictures were still stunning. 

5.) I can't believe she MADE HER DRESS! 

Each of the carefully selected pieces that adorned their venue can only be described as timeless and elegant. This wedding made for one of the most simple-romantic designs I’ve ever seen. But this perfect decor was NOTHING in comparison to the love and joy that quite literally beamed from the faces of not JUST the bride & groom but from ALL who attended this wedding. In fact, I don’t know if i’ve every been to a wedding quite as joyful as this one. Why? Because Jordan and Blaine had their eye on the prize, their marriage. Since their relationship was long distance the ENTIRE time (Him in Illinois, Her in Tennessee), they were just so happy to finally be together and it SHOWED.

Jordan and Blake grew up in the same friend & church circles, about 3.5 years ago they began noticing each other differently. Their relationship began by mentioning each other in casual conversations with mutual friends until eventually Blaine decided to do this thing FOR REAL! Because they were dating with the intention of marriage, he decided to take a visit to Jordan’s family farm in Tennessee. After this trip, he was certain about her, their relationship, and their future. So, he began putting a plan together to make this thing official. His first move was to call Jordan’s dad and ask him if he could pursue a relationship with his daughter (Cue all the “awwwwwww’s…..) whoever said “chivalry is dead” has NOT met Blaine! But Jordan’s father made Blaine sweat a bit by making him wait and wait for a response…. until finally he gave him the green light.

But there was still one problem, there were 425 miles of Midwest Farmland between them.

They committed to seeing each other every two weeks until 6 months later, Blaine proposed to Jordan on her birthday. And 5 months after that, Blaine & Jordan stood together, hand in hand, in front of God and their family and friends, and put to words what their hearts already knew for so long.

Blaine & Jordan, from the moment I met you, Jesus’s love and light burst through you both. You’re kind and sweet, warm & loving, and SO MUCH FUN! You are truly as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. Never stop, and never change.

There are a lot of discouraging things in this world. But a couple like you guys bring hope to all. The only thing more powerful than the way we love people is the way that we love people together. And my prayer is that anyone who crosses your path, feel the same love that I and many people were blessed enough to experience on your special day.

God bless you both and congratulations on your newest adventure! It was such a privilege and a true pleasure to get to document your first day. I’ve photographed a lot of couples and a lot of weddings… but you two TRULY took my breath away!

Spotlight Feature: Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique in Peoria, Illinois

A while back I had the pleasure of meeting & photographing the ladies over at Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique in Peoria, Illinois.

While stepping into the doors of Central Illinois’ first exclusive bridal boutique I was taken aback at how exquisite this boutique was. Every square inch of this place made you feel like ROYALTY. The bright and airy atmosphere, the soft and elegant French furniture for families and friends to watch, the ceiling to floor mirrors, the STUNNING crystal chandelie… the warm and friendly faces of their employees, their dressing rooms fit for a queen… not to mention the BEAUTIFUL assortment of bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses, and bridal accessories (I know this is the longest run-on sentence EVER…. but really… this place is stunning!)

I am confident that this boutique is the PERFECT place for any bride to find that perfect dress.

These ladies get it… they do! They KNOW how long you’ve been dreaming of this day. Just interviewing them, I could feel their level of commitment and their passion in ensuring that each and every bride who walks through their doors has the PERFECT experience. That they leave feeling confident, beautiful, and encouraged.

Cloud nine is an amazing boutique for brides who cherish individual style and a one-of-a-kind experience. Schedule an appoint HERE or by calling 309-693-3830.

Pro Tips:

When asked what “her one piece of advice would be for brides getting ready to go wedding dress shopping would be,” Owner, Jennifer Hitchens, responded, “Have an open mind.” Always be willing to try everything. You might end up getting what you came in for, but you might be pleasantly surprised. :)

Me: “For a bride who wants a timeless wedding dress, what elements does that include in a dress?”

J.H.: “Ivory, a line, clean, lace, satin/silk”

Me: “For brides who want their wedding to be ‘trendy’ what all does that include in a dress?

J.H.: “Colored. Fit to Flare. Lots of Detail. Illusion Dresses.”
