{guest post} outdoor library wedding from luna & chloe weddings

I am beyond delighted and honored to be guest posting today on Postcards & Pretties.  I can't tell you how much I adore Chris' blog.  And I have to tell you that she is just the absolute sweetest!  For these reasons I wanted to create something special for her and you (her lovely readers), which is why I put together a little wedding photo shoot for today's post. 
Inspired by my vintage books, a library check out card that I found in one of them and the magnolia's that are in bloom right now, this is what I created under the magnolia trees..
Photo Shoot
For the escort cards I created a library check out card that has each person's name on it as well as the title and author of a book.  The book name corresponds with the table that they are seated at.  So in the picture below you can see that Wes Barkley is seated at the Cluny Brown table.

For the table I kept the decor simple...

And I had to create a little lounge area...

A perfect little spot for books and bride bingo!  I hope you enjoyed my photo shoot as much as I did creating it!  And I hope you are inspired to create some of your own details for your event...because with a couple paper elements - escort, sign in and menu cards, a handful of decorations and some amazing blooms...you can easily DIY!
