The Good Life featured on Rock 'n Roll Bride!

We were totally thrilled when Kat from the Rock 'n Roll Bride posted some images from our Moulin Rouge-inspired shoot! Here are some more photos and details behind our inspiration:

When styling this photo shoot, we wanted to create a romantic vintage atmosphere with a twist. Something vibrant, elegant, and out-of-the-box. Having been to the Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris, we tied in details and rich colors reminiscent of our visit. The rich reds, deep purple irises, and black accents were intended on creating perhaps a non-traditional wedding palette. Tucking black feathers into deep, velvety red roses and contrasting purple irises, our floral pieces emitted a tone of a classic wedding romance while being a bit off-beat.

Sheet music was rolled into scrolls and cinched with crystal drops for a little touch of whimsy. Gorgeous hand-painted place cards accented our ruby French brocade linen and black satin napkins gave a punch of interest. All of these elements came together seamlessly to create a wedding celebration that is timeless, a bit sexy, and just radiating romance.

The vision for our bride was classic however, she isn’t wearing a true wedding dress. Her frock is a bridesmaid’s dress from designer Jenny Yoo – it just happens to be white. Using a simple oversized black flower in her hair added so much drama to our bride’s look. Classic and timeless what the look we gave our groom; he donned a traditional black tuxedo with a charming bow tie.

It’s all about drawing from things you love in life when dreaming up your wedding vision. If you are a music lover, bring in subtle pieces of sheet music and incorporate in your stationery goods or favors. If you love Paris, tie in Parisian textures, fabrics, or subtle touches like we did with our 1890s-style Parisian Ferris wheel “bouquet.” If you don’t want to wear a traditional wedding dress; don’t! We encourage our clients to create a wedding experience that’s a true celebration of them, not simple a replica of someone else’s vision. Just look around; inspiration can be found everywhere!
