Alice in Wonderland with an edgy twist
From Oh So Pretty Events & Rentals: I love Alice in Wonderland and have been wanting to do a styled shoot around this theme for a long time. I especially love Tim Burton's re-make of this classical movie & decided to do a styled shoot that focused on the more edgy side of Alice in Wonderland. I mixed in elements of glam as well because that is my aesthetic & I also wanted to show real brides how they can use this for their own wedding in real life too.
Would you believe us if we told you this caged dress was made entirely of poster board paper?! Oh So Pretty Events & Rentals spent hours creating this showstopping piece with built in boning. She also made the tulle skirt the bride is wearing, talk about talent!
Edgy vibe in a modern venue
I chose the Hudson Loft as the venue because I wanted to give it a more editorial, modern look and the sleek loft style backgrounds at Hudson Loft in Downtown Los Angeles fit perfectly. They also have so many different rooms available that allowed me to create totally different looks in each space too. The color palette I went with was a mixture of pinks, red, black, gold & greenery. I mixed in a lot of black elements throughout the shoot to give it more of an edgy vibe.
Whimsical garden feel
For the ceremony, I had Letters to You create a large laser cut calligraphy sign of a Lewis Carroll quote "Every adventure requires a first step" & had Scarlet Blushes put garland vines around it as the centerpiece of the space. I wanted to create a whimsical garden in the middle of this modern loft, so I had Graciela Orellana create these super fun paper flowers to go down the entire aisle & to complete the look I used MTB Event Rental's gorgeous gold infinity chairs for seating.
Mini cakes for all
For the reception table setting, I used the black petrified wood cheese boards from West Elm as chargers & vintage gold and white dinnerware from Otis and Pearl. Each place setting had mini cakes topped with caramel & flowers by Sweet Nothings Cake Shop and blush chiffon napkins from A Ribbon's Nest.
Prettiest cake cart
One of my favorite settings was our gold bar cart where the cake was displayed. Scarlet Blushes did an amazing job with creating this floral chandelier installation & the cake that Sweet Nothings Cake Shop made was to die for!! For the escort table, I used our Florence console table & had these pretty gold pearl knobs from Anthropologie as the name card holders. I had Letters to You write another quote on this black petrified wood cheese board from West Elm and it looked so beautiful with everything.
Amazing team of vendors
This styled shoot was a dream to work on and I have to thank all the amazing vendors that were involved, they really brought my vision to life and I couldn't be happier with how it all turned out.
