Elopement at the Palace of the Fine Arts
This shoot was inspired by the grandeur of the Palace of the Fine Arts. With its soaring colonnade, dramatic rotunda and intricate sculpting, the Palace provided a backdrop full of details reminiscent of old world beauty. Click here to see the full editorial featured on Joy Wed!
Our color palette of muave, deep reds and dusty yellow was the perfect juxtaposition against the neutral design of the Palace. Abelia Floral provided us with a spilling, organic arrangement full of garden blooms which helped to bring a feeling of natural elegance to our luxurious table, set for two. Our bride’s bouquet was a whimsical, lush arrangement full of muted tones.
We were honored to showcase this stunning Crystal Design gown with its high neck, illusion lace detailing and form fitting fabric. The fabric draped softly around the curves of our model with each step she took.
Stephanie Brazzle captured each vignette through the medium of film. Each intimate moment and intricate detail was captured as if to give the viewer a glimpse into the past. Her eye and use of natural light helped to create photos with so much depth and emotion.
Our stationery suite was carefully crafted by Scribbles and Swirls; who used textured edges, vellum and wax seals to create the paper suite. A hand drawn illustration of the Palace, custom vow books and menus helped to depict both the intimacy and grandeur of the elopement.
This shoot was an absolute dream come true. Each intricate detail perfectly complemented the grand scale of the Palace of the Fine Arts, giving us a cohesive story truly evocative of the old world.
