Every now and then I long to indulge in a little taste of wedding luxury. The black tie, gilded details, extravagant cakes, fine champagne…you get the idea. And when Sandra Marusic shared her latest inspiration shoot involving all of the above, we knew it was just the ticket to spoil our dear SMPers. So what are you waiting for? Live like a queen for the day (or longer!) in the full gallery right here.

From Sandra Marusic… Our inspiration shoot in Zurich was a perfect match between luxury companies and amazing Swiss vendors. Dream venue, Zunfthaus zur Meisen was built in 1757 in the French style and in the tradition of a baroque city palace with a small cour d’honneur. It dates back to Zurich’s high period characterized by Bodmer and Breitinger and has the reputation of being the most beautiful guild house in the City of Zurich.
My inspiration was “le parfum” by Ellie Saab plus the breathtaking, gold dress by Mery’s Couture Zurich. One of my favorite elements was the absolutely gorgeous engagement ring and I also LOVED all Lele PyP’s shoes!
We used the colors combinations of peach and gold with black and white throughout the shoot. Moët & Chandon were also an extraordinary plus for our details!

Switzerland has long been on my list of vacation destinations I need to visit ASAP. And even though I have been obsessed with the idea of cozying up in a little Swiss cabin for as long as I can remember, it just hasn’t happened yet. This, my friends, is my friendly little reminder that my ticket needs.to.be.booked. Because if one week in a Swiss paradise is anywhere near as awesome as this lovely little day captured by Celine Chhuon Photography, my life will be complete. Join me in the gallery for all of the pretty.
From Celine Chhuon Photography… Sarah and Nicolas got to know each other during a one-year around the world trip. Both are fans of trecking and it was after a long climb to reach on of the highest mountains of Mount Cook region in New Zealand that Nicolas proposed to Sarah! And was then naturally that they decided to seal their love at 1,600 meter high in a nice Swiss chalet on top of a mountain in Switzerland where they’re both from. They both wanted something rustic and simple, decoration was subtle and they chose to have lots of wild flowers as main decoration. The couple spent months to hand-decorate hundreds of vases with lace, pearls, raffia and hemp strings to hold the flowers on the guests tables. Table cloth were hand-sewn too. Sarah and Nicolas are very close to their parents so they wanted to celebrate their own parents’ love by displaying their vintage photographs that they spent months to look for in the attic archives!
The day ended by lanterns in the Swiss sky with mountains as a backdrop, and a song sung by the groom for the bride!

From Claire Morgan
…Lidia told me she was addicted to SMP during her wedding planning process. She is half Spanish and half Croatian, and Stefan is half Italian, although both are born and raised Swiss. Therefore it was a 4 nationality wedding.
They got married in Blausee (which means Blue Lake), one of the best-known mountain lakes in Switzerland is located in the midst of a small nature park. It has a very special color and crystal-clear water, which has its source in subterranean springs. It is also a trout farm so one can see fresh-water trout swimming freely in the small lake.
Lidia and Stefan fell in love with the location and loved how everything was conveniently located so that everything could take place within one location. The hotel and restuarant are located on the shore of the lake and they had an outdoor ceremony just outside the hotel. We took our time for a lovely portrait session just before the sun disappeared behind the mountain in the forest and the evening was enjoyed with a 4 course meal served by the hotel which I can honestly say was some of the best food I ever tasted.
