Valerie & David’s Magical Map and Atlas-themed Wedding


DIY travel-themed wedding

I’m absolutely thrilled to share Valerie and David’s magical wedding with you today, and I don’t mean “magical” in that they had tricks and stuff in their celebration. What they did have was genuine love for each other which completely shone through the enchanting photos captured by Nathan Bell with Richard Bell Photography (see his previously featured work). Isn’t that photo above just gorgeous?

This wedding also oozed with the couple’s creativity as you will see via the tasteful map and atlas-themed details that represented their love for travel. From the brilliant boarding ticket invites and luggage tags that showed a plane flying around the world in an infinity symbol, the atlas-inspired turquoise and pink motif, and the map-print bunting and other reception decor, all the elements were cohesive in look and feel. (Incidentally Nathan told me that the bride, Valerie Schooling is another professional wedding photographer in the Charleston, SC area which of course explains the eye for detail.) 🙂

Prepare your virtual pins because you are in for some serious eye candy. Enjoy.

The lovely Valerie is here to tell us a little bit about herself & David and their wedding:

We love travel! In the past year of dating, we’ve been to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. Our wedding invitations were boarding passes with a plane flying around the world in the infinity symbol.

I ordered paper flowers on Etsy made out of atlas paper. These were used in all of our bride and bridesmaids bouquets and reception centerpieces.

Our wedding colors of teal and pink were chosen from the atlas paper color scheme.

These amazing photos are actually what prompted me to write “magical” in the title of this post.

We had atlas paper hearts on toothpicks for the cupcakes.

Our guest book was a globe. We also asked that in lieu of our wedding registry, we signed up for a honeymoon registry on HoneyFund.
