Ever wondered what Don and Megan’s wedding would have looked like? Makeup artist Nika Vaughan and the photographers of Studio Starling did too, so they created this shoot for Mad Men fans everywhere. It’s a mad mod world at Nellcôte with bold blue baroque chairs, a dainty Exquisite Designs bouquet, a dramatic bow topped veil, and a two chic sheaths too good to choose between. Oh, and a dreamy Don Draper dead ringer. You can stop wondering what could have been and see your imagination come to life in the full shoot!
From Nika Vaughan, Makeup Artist… It all started with the question, “What would Don and Megan’s wedding have looked like?”
From Nicole Radja of Studio Starling… We’re all big fans of the show, and felt like we wanted to see their day. We chose Nellcôte as our location, a cool new restaurant in the Randolph/Halsted St. area in Chicago. It’s cool ’60s French modern vibe and gorgeous decor was perfect. We wanted to have Megan’s flair for fun and unexpected outfits pair with Don’s traditionalism.
