When imagining this editorial, Ashley specifically wanted to create something unique which also represents the perfect inspiration for a couple seeking old world Italian charm in a fairytale setting. To bring her ideas to life she chose to collaborate with Elyse Alexandria Photography whose refined, elegant and unique shooting style is representative of the look and feel Ashley was aiming to achieve.
For most elegant brides one of the most important choices they face is deciding on a wedding gown. We wanted to incorporate a unique approach on the wedding dress by integrating a pop of color into the design. Enter- dusty blue! The bridesmaids also wore different shades & textures of blue in their Jenny Yoo NYC dresses from Bella Bridesmaids to really highlight the accent color.
Designing with the dusty blue dress color in mind, we had to keep the other details focusing on textures, rather than color to make sure the contrast was imminent. The lace of the bridal robes down (from The Lace Atelier) to the velvet napkins that were used on the reception tablescapes– all allowed the inspiration to come together in a subtle yet impactful way.
We ended the day with a glass of celebratory grapefruit champagne cocktail via a champagne cart provided by Bubbles & Brews Las Vegas on the bridge that is a close replica to the Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence. Each guest was gifted with macarons, a French treat, upon their departure.
