Gold halos and ethereal layers of tulle and lace are giving us all the goddess vibes! Shades of subtle mauve and sage are complemented by pops of coral and blue, reminiscent of gilded portraits of ancient deities. This team thought about everything for this inspiration shoot, from the starburst chargers that match the bride's crown to the imported cutlery, the tablescape isn't just pretty, it's an experience. A cohesive theme should immerse your guests in your wedding vision, they should be right there in the fantasy with you. Remember that your guests' first experience with your wedding is the invitation, so it is important that the invitation suite reflects the theme and palette of the wedding as well as communicate important information like dates, time, and dress code. All of these hidden details are sure to capture your guests' attention and spark a few conversations, and that is exactly what a good wedding design should do.
With tons of light and gold elements, these photos by Brooke Bakken Photography are glowing! Wish Blossom Flowers created all of these stunning florals and each flower adds to the narrative. The Commercial Club provided the perfect backdrop for this elegant and over-the-top shoot. All the images are in the full gallery, so be sure to click through and read on to hear more from Betsy Barker of Betsy Couture Vintage Wedding Gowns.
This shoot was styled around the beautiful vintage Brown Rose china pattern by Royal Copenhagen. The delicate nature of this pattern lends itself to the simple beauty of the gold starburst chargers and the brass & wood Siamese flatware. I love creating juxtaposition within a table setting to add charm and create an unexpected look. Tiny brass boxes from Jerusalem act as place card holders, as well as a small gift.
Susie, from Wish Blossom Flowers, describes how she selected the flowers to include in the arrangements, "Anemones are about anticipation and the beginning of a forever. Ranunculus is charmingly attractive and makes one think of a beautiful bride. The Garden Roses complete it all because they symbolize timeless romance. Every element complements the others and every glorious blossom speaks for itself to create sublime perfection."
Brides love glitz, glamor, and grandeur! This glamorous gown by Betsy Couture Vintage Wedding Gowns has it all. The custom-made A-line wedding gown of gold, rose gold, and metallic gold lace is dramatic and effortless. With a scalloped lace hem and buttons at the wrists, it has all the details. Atop, it is covered by a ginormous, extra-long, removable gold-flecked tulle overskirt with a sweeping train that secures at the waist with a stunning gold-rhinestone clasp. Talk about drama!
Amaroq designs the most exquisite crowns! I am always thrilled to be able to put one of her beauties on my brides! Her crowns are solid, stunning pieces of art. This particular crown highlights everything this shoot is about–bigger-than-life beauty, gold, glitz, and glamor!
