Amelie Wedding Inspiration

Amelie is not only a heart-felt movie, but also has a ton of  lovely wedding inspiration throughout the film. So much inspiration that The Emerics created an outdoor garden wedding vignette inspired by the film. Filled with organic elements, quotes from the film and a very specific color scheme of greens and reds. Read on to hear more details from these Las Vegas wedding photographers. Do check out more Amelie wedding inspiration in the full gallery by clicking here.

We decided on small plants as favors too because Amelie has potted plants along the windowsill of her apartment and thought it would flow nicely with the organic vibe. Since Amelie was a waitress at a cafe in Paris, we decided on a menu board instead of individual menus on the plates. In the movie you can see her handwriting the menu on glass. And just to pay further homage to the movie itself, we chose a few of our favorite quotes and hung them alongside the escort cards.

Jason and I set out to create a wedding inspired by the French movie Amelie, which is our favorite movie of all time – our daughter’s middle name is Amelie, just as an indication as to how much we love it! I began to seek out the organic elements of the movie, as well as our favorite quotes to help us set the scene for a small, intimate courtyard wedding. The movie has a very specific color scheme of greens and reds, so we kept those colors throughout the design elements.

The narrator describes Amelie early in the movie as someone who enjoyed “life’s small pleasures : immersing one’s hand in a sack of grain, cracking the crust of a crème brulée with the back of a teaspoon or skipping stones on the Canal St-Martin.” We used burlap sacks with the word, amour, over the outdoor fireplace, we also used had a vase of river rocks for guests to write wishes for the newlyweds on, and of course, creme brulee was part of our dessert table.

A lot of the pieces were thrift store finds, such as the cake table, the suitcase, and the panel with fabric strips. We simply refurbished them ourselves to match our color scheme. We had our talented friend, Sarah Barajas, make the crepe cake, raspberry tart, and creme brulee. There were a lot of DIY elements throughout the decor, as well. Jason hand-sewed the burlap sacks and the burlap “cards” flag then made stencils for the letters. I painted the small terre cotta pots green then used sandpaper to give them a distressed look. We also designed and printed our own escort cards, place cards, and quote cards. The table covering was also made by the floral artist based on the vision we had.
