We were thrilled to pieces when Jessica Adams Design, of Newly Loved, an up-and-coming local wedding stylist, approached us about working together. We decided that Jessica should put together a stunning escort card display. We're in love with what she came up with!

Here's what she has to say about the process:

Fall to me is a rich color pallet, a spectrum of brown hues, star gazing nights, and toasty bonfires. These were a few of my inspirational thoughts when conjuring up this escort card display for Baltimore Bride. As I dug deeper, I realized my inspiration was stemming from my camping experiences throughout my marriage. We are big campers and our favorite time to venture out is in the fall!

With that being said, I wanted to incorporate a beautiful wedding display with little hints of camping here and there. Once the concept was created, my next thought was how to display the cards. I didn't want to go in the traditional fall direction and use mini pumpkins (even though they are adorable). I wanted to be a little more creative. Which had me think back to one of our camping trips in Western Maryland where we decided to see how many acorns we could collect on this particular trial before we headed back to camp. Yes, that was it – acorns! This symbol of fall was a great accent for the cards that were neatly nestled on plaid flannel! They were the perfect choice to house our escort cards for this shoot.

The table, which displayed the cards, was also decorated with our favorite camping mugs, an aluminum teakettle, and a vintage glass lantern. My idea was to not use them for their intended purpose but as vases filled with wildflowers to help bring in the deep vibrant colors of fall. Not only was the floral color palette ideal for our theme but also the flowers were the perfect detail to soften the tablescape.

Last but certainly not least, was an amazing 5-post canvas tent that acted as the backdrop for our table. To some, they may see a boring ivory primitive tent, but to me I saw a honeymoon escape for the bride and groom after their big day. It was brilliant! To enhance it's look and make it wedding worthy, we adorned the tent with willow branches and corresponding flowers from our table. The tent not only tied our camping theme all together but it gave the overall shoot a very whimsical & enchanted feel.
