How To Have A Wes Anderson Themed Wedding Day

A whimsical slightly fairytale sort of vibe seems to hover around this wedding inspiration. And we think we know why... this vintage summer camp wedding shoot has an "accidental Wes Anderson" theme, and we could not be more excited about this fun new trend! If you are a fan of the works of Wes Anderson, ie, Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, then you may have said to yourself, I wish I could live in a world like this... Welcome to your perfect wedding day theme!

Keep scrolling to see just what it is that makes this camping style wedding so very Wes Anderson-y. And you can see every last bit of this lovely shoot in our full gallery thanks to the photography talents of Nikk Nguyen Photo.
