Okay. Grab a cup of coffee or a cocktail (it’s noon somewhere right) and have yourself a very comfortable seat. This From Inspiration to Reality shoot isn’t your standard wedding fare. It’s so much more. A little bit masculine, a little bit feminine. A little bit high fashion, a little bit vintage. A little bit pretty, a little bit gorgeous. It’s a blend of everything I love, done with a delicate hand and an eye for design. Big, big props to Tracey of Your Las Vegas Wedding Concierge, Chelsea Nicole, Tifany of Gourmet Invitations, Shannon of Emplume, Naakiti Floral Design, and all of the other vendors (full list below) for putting together such great eye candy…
From the moment Chelsea Nicole and I found out about the “Inspiration to Reality” features, we were both on the same page in wanting to give Style Me Pretty readers a glimpse into a different side of Las Vegas; one that evoked the glamour that was the early hey days of this fabulous city! Our entire Las Vegas creative team was absolutely thrilled when we found this stunner of an Inspiration Board called, “Fur & Feathers” that was created by Chiara. The weathered luggage, fur (but only faux for us) and feathers made us think of the movie, “The Aviator” about the legendary Howard Hughes who is as much a part of the “dreamer-can-do” spirit, history and development of Las Vegas as Bugsy Siegel is. As we browsed through the production still images from the movie we became increasingly giddy about our choice knowing it was a perfect way to tie the essence and style of this inspiration board to our unique location in Vegas. Hollywood and Las Vegas have always shared an allure of design, fashion and love of the good times since the 40’s. Alas, starlets in beautiful, demure, vintage inspired designer gowns and handsome men dressed sharp in tuxedos or dinner jackets may not be the scene d’jour anymore, but for us it was a dream we made come true to inspire you all to “Return to Desert Glamour”.
