Vintage Family Heirlooms


Today’s Inspired Creations Contest concept embodies so much of what I love in wedding ideas – it’s unique, personal, eco-friendly, and timeless.  The creative duo of Brancoprata styled and photographed this concept, which incorporates family heirlooms and vintage items and is incredibly romantic!

Sofia’s father raced pigeons in Europe.  All of these trophies, which Sofia and Andre filled with fluffy alstroemeria, are from his competitions.

These lovely pearl earrings belong to Sofia’s mother.  They were given to her by Sofia’s grandfather to wear on her wedding day.  Sofia, as I do, believes in weaving precious family treasures throughout weddings.
