Wedding Inspiration: A Day at an Alpaca Farm

Alpaca Farm Wedding Inspiration, Flowers by Everly Alaine Florals

A few months ago, I had the honor of participating in a wedding editorial shoot with some other amazing Texan makers and artists. Leslie Acevedo of Everly Alaine Florals asked me to provide the paper goods and calligraphy, and it was so much fun. And best of all, IT WAS ON AN ALPACA FARM. AN ALPACA FARM, I TELL YOU. It was amazing. For realz. And second best of all? IT WAS FEATURED ON 100 LAYER CAKE. Mind = BLOWN.

So anyway, you wanna see some photos? BECAUSE THEY’RE AMAZING.

See those? I DID THOSE. To be honest, I was pretty freaked at the idea of creating a custom invitation suite for a non-existent wedding, but in the end, it was a really fun exercise. The vision for the wedding shoot was to set the scene as textural, somewhat rustic, definitely modern, and all with a classic feel. I silkscreened the event info onto natural muslin and mounted it onto a selection of paper from Paper Source. It was a lovely, heavy cardstock in a mix of cool taupes and greys.

The calligraphy was also fun to do. It’s kind of a secret hobby of mine – and one that I don’t often share, as the world is somewhat inundated with incredible talent right now. I’m a bit self conscious about it! But it was very exciting to translate it into wedding work, which isn’t something I really do any more since working at the flower shop. I’ve done work with amazing local florists since starting SCOUT + LILLY, but in a different capacity (tees, tote bags, custom printed sachets, etc.). I can’t seem to extricate myself from the industry!

This wedding banner featuring the first initials of the “couple” was particularly fun to make. I silkscreened it onto the same rustic muslin that I used in the invitations, and I think the effect was quite lovely.

And, of course, everyone needs to see me and my new alpaca pal. He was really fluffeh. Or she. Can’t remember. BUT IT WAS CUTE.

Everyone was an absolute dream to work with – it was actually quite intimidating! I can only hope to participate in such awesomeness in the future. Here are the details of the awesome ladiez who made this incredible shoot happen:
