Celebrating love is the greatest reason to celebrate in my book, and if you are going to kick up your heels, you might as well do so in style. Enter A Splendid Occasion and this ridiculously fun shoot captured by Emilia Jane Photography. This gallery is literally overflowing with fun, steal-worthy ideas for your next soiree (including some gorgeous beauty inspiration from Nika Vaughan Bridal Artists). Which means you should make a beeline to this gallery ASAP.
From A Splendid Occasion…The idea for this shoot came from the recent passing of the same-sex marriage law in Chicago, IL. We thought it would be nice to show our support by putting together a small styled shoot for those now able and excited to start planning their wedding.
The goal was to keep everything very feminine, romantic, and soft, with a touch of whimsy. Alice Padrul’s dresses (the highlight) really lend themselves well to this theme, and Emilia Jane photographed them beautifully. The bright, summer like colors and the accents of handmade materials really put this shoot over the edge. All of the materials used for this wedding can be created by anyone, it just takes a little bit of time! The handmade elements include the popcorn bar, calligraphy, the wedding cake, cake topper, as well as the backdrop for the ceremony, all by A Splendid Occasion.
