Bastille Day Inspired Wedding Shoot

Tanti Lina, owner of Papertini — a floral design company located in Philadelphia —approached Trilogy Event Design with a vision for a styled wedding photo shoot based upon Bastille Day. Utilizing a red, white, and blue color palette, Tanti asked Chief Event Planner Randi Martin to coordinate the day and for Creative Director Francesca Staffieri to design the stationery. Meanwhile, Inna Spivakova from Peach Plum Pear Photography worked to capture all the creativity on display.

To set the stage for the main tablescape, Papertini designed floral arrangements that would stick to the chosen color palette. Selecting foods that matched the theme was easy enough, but Tanti went so far as to come up with a new spin on a signature cocktail — The French Kiss.  

Hatboro-based Ciao Bella Cakes brought a delicious red velvet cake to the table that all the professionals were able to enjoy after the shoot was finished.

For the wedding stationery system that we created for the day, Francesca chose a striking font, with clean lines and open space that allowed the colors to pop.  She also designed the menus, table numbers, and cards.

The wedding invitation suite that Francesca designed was expertly letterpress printed by local family-owned printers, The Paravano Company.

The wedding invitation suite was completed with hand-lettering done by Lynda Asprinio of Write Away for You Calligraphy

And, you can't have a wedding without someone getting married. Playing the part of the bride was model Lindsay Marie whose make-up was done by C.E. Facial Artistry

We were happy to be part of the coordination and design of Papertini's vision, and even happier to see our work featured on Storyboard Wedding, a popular inspirational blog for couples planning their wedding.
