Vibrant Gustav Klimt Wedding Inspiration

I was first introduced to Gustav Klimt during college art history classes and haven’t forgotten about him since, and this styled shoot by Sixpence For Your Shoe was the most gorgeous reminder of what a fan I am of his enchanting work. Eric Foley photographed every intricate detail, from Coral Pheasant’s stationery suite to Azalea Floral Design’s beautiful blooms. Fall in love with art all over again right here!

Whimsical

From Sixpence For Your Shoe… Inspired by the vibrant colors, golden tones and the sensual portrayal of love, our styled shoot based on Gustav Klimt came together through a layering of textures, colors, elements and ideas reminiscent of the artist and his glorious paintings.

We immediately set our eyes on Edith Wharton’s home, The Mount, as the style of the art nouveau movement lends itself so well to the venue’s architecture and gardens. Given that Klimt’s subjects were primarily the female, we chose to represent this concept with a same sex couple. Both gorgeous brides were styled by Everthine Bridal Boutique and wore gowns that were so different and yet so complementary to each other. We loved how the Jenny Packham Lina with soft draping yet sexy plunging neckline played with Anna Campbell Genevieve, with its graceful fitting and exquisite beaded detailing. Intricate golden jewelry from Aquinnah added a touch of glamour.

We chose the 1902 stable location for our tablescape, captivated by the European exterior and rustic interior. A black antique table was dressed with a richly detailed golden linen, the most delicious turquoise china, a wild floral garland and artistic candle stands. Azalea designed a stunning cascade of flowers suspended from above to re-create Klimt’s melting of colors. One favorite detail is the “Life is short, Eat dessert first” tags for the truffles at each place setting, a playful nod to all those that dive into their favors as soon as they are seated, along with a bit erotic love as illustrated through chocolate.

When it came to designing the stationery suite, our genius designer Coral Pheasant was most inspired by the luxe china and Klimt’s art. The scallop border on the invitation is evocative of the china pattern and the loose and languid font that felt like it was penned by the artist himself. A painterly floral liner adds softness to the suite. The stamps were arranged them in the lower corner allowing the address to span across the top; an unexpected element that brings whimsy to the design.

The cake featured a decadent red frosting with gold leaf accent. And saving the best of last, watercolor truffles on a wooden painter’s palette.

From Julia Jane StudiosKristen brought her innate charm to her vintage inspired wedding in the Berkshires. She paired her BHLDN gown and cathedral length veil with a vintage clutch, a vintage necklace (a gift from Tim), and custom made bird earrings (also a gift from Tim). Their rings were carried in a vintage glass jewelry box and the table was adorned with brass candlesticks and single flowers in glass vases. Each place setting was marked with a petite handmade bird sculpture. The intimate affair was marked by a sophisticated elegance- highlighted by one long table on the front porch of Chesterwood where all of their guests dined as the sun set over the mountains.

From the Bride… Tim and I were high school sweethearts, and remained friends throughout the years. One morning, after a late night of writing in graduate school, I felt compelled to email Tim and see how he was doing. I couldn’t explain why, but I just felt it was suddenly right to catch up with him. As it turns out, my instinct was spot on, and a few weeks later he visited me. The rest, as they say, is history.

We chose Chesterwood in Stockbridge, MA as the venue for our wedding because of its beautiful grounds and the fact that it was the home and studio of the American sculptor, Daniel Chester French. As an art historian, I was particularly attracted to Chesterwood’s history, and we both fell in love with the gardens when we visited. Our wedding was a small but elegant affair, the weather was divine, and the grounds gorgeous. A string duo provided a beautiful sonic backdrop of classical music during the ceremony, signature cocktail hour, and romantic al fresco dinner, held on the patio of the artist’s studio.

In planning our event, we kept things simple, favoring details and personal touches that spoke to us; privileging sincerity and elegance over prescription. As the day drew to an end, our guests delighted in a spectacular sunset overlooking the Berkshire mountains, and all the details were captured beautifully by our photographer, Julia Gargano (Julia Jane Studios)

Library

From the beautiful Bride… Kyle and I met for the first time when we were both interviewing for medical school. We went to the same undergraduate university, but had never met before then. We dated for the remainder of senior year before leaping into a long-distance relationship during medical school, and we finally tied the knot as we were about to graduate.

One of our favorite things to do over the years when we would visit each other is to eat! We love food, and spent a lot of time trying out new recipes and going to great restaurants. And as students, we inevitably spent the other majority of our time studying together – at home, at coffee shops, and at the library. Therefore, when we were looking for a wedding venue, we wanted a place that reflected the “nerdy foodies” that we are – so the Boston Public Library was a perfect fit. From the moment we saw the beautifully designed plates presented by the Catered Affairs in a magazine, we knew that we had to visit the library’s courtyard restaurant. After our experience, we knew we were in expert hands that are not only devoted to the taste but are creative culinary artists.

Not only was the library a place of intellect, it also spoke to my background in Architectural Engineering and Kyle’s love of history. The BPL is architecturally stunning with its classical Italian style atrium courtyard with its iconic columns, arches, and marble. With its status as the first large free municipal library in the U.S. and recognition as a national historic landmark, it is any history buff’s dream.

When designing the details of our wedding, we wanted a wedding that was elegant, romantic and intimate, that reflected who we were, as well as who we are now. The menu was picked to combine our Texas roots, with accents of BBQ pulled pork and breakfast tacos, with our current New England living with a touch of lobster bisque and wedding favors from Boston institution, Mike’s Pastry.

The wedding cake is a nod to our months spent in Sicily during a summer of medical school where the specialty dessert was the Sette Veli, which was also the cake Kyle had proposed with. We wanted an intimate affair with our closest family and friends who have been with us through the worst and the best, have seen us grow over the years and supported us in our pursuits. We hoped that our celebration would reflect the characteristics that are unique to us and shows our appreciation for our guests.

From Urban Lace EventsThe Bride and Groom live in New York City, but have spent many holidays and weekends in Cape Cod where the groom enjoyed childhood summers with his family. When choosing a wedding venue, the couple desired a location where friends and family could come together for a relaxing getaway. After visiting Chatham Bars Inn, the couple fell in love with its seaside location and elegant yet relaxing atmosphere.

With its seaside location, the couple envisioned a reception with a nautical feel. We see a lot of nautically designed weddings each year so we really wanted to elevate it and create a design with originality and sophistication. With Lucinda Wesson from Chocolate Creative Design on board to create the wedding paper, we knew it would be just that! The couples favorite detail was the Save the Dates that included a beautiful custom designed fabric pouch complete with a brass “porthole” and map of Cape Cod. The bride loved how the save the date set the tone for the wedding and got guest excited for the big day. The pattern used for the save the dates was carried throughout the wedding with the custom made table runners, menu cards, and wrapping paper for the bridal party gifts.

Boston Marathon Survivor + Nurse Tie the Knot

When this Boston Marathon bombing survivor fell in love with his recovery nurse at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, a wedding in the city that brought them together – even under the worst of circumstances – only felt fitting. They called on their favorite local vendors for a summer celebration at the Hyatt Regency Boston, and the result was a day of love and triumph over tragedy all captured by Prudente Photographers. Scroll below for the must-watch clip by I Do Films and beautiful words straight from the Bride.

From The Bride… Our fairytale wedding was a whirlwind. While our start was hardly a fairytale beginning, James and I still reel in the love that we feel for each other, the love that we feel from the city of Boston and all of those that came together to make our dreams come true. We wed a little over a year after my now husband headed to the Boston Marathon finish line with five childhood friends. A Boston Marathon bombing survivor, James and I met while he was receiving treatment at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. We instantly connected.

Coming together in a mere six months, our wedding was coordinated and held at Hyatt Regency Boston and tended to by top, Boston-area vendors. The morning of the wedding, we headed over to G2o Spa + Salon via Uber. G20 styled us to perfection with soft, sophisticated, side swept, up-style and natural, dewy and sun-kissed make-up that set the tone for a captivating smoky eye. MiniLuxe continued the pampering with manis and pedis with their Boston-inspired polishes. My bridesmaids donned navy LulaKate Pearl dresses compliments of Bella Bridesmaid and I wore an Allure Couture gown from Bella Sera Bridal Boutique.

James didn’t look so bad himself! He dazzled in a custom-made, two button, navy, Brooks Brothers suit, a made-to-measure option that was proudly made in Haverhill, MA. Our gentlemen and groomsmen were dressed personally by menswear designer and chief creative director of Men’s Wearhouse, Joseph Abboud! 

We exchanged vows on Hyatt Regency Boston’s outdoor Nantucket terrace overlooking the cityscape of Boston. James surprised me with gorgeous, sweeping linens from Design Light Co. that flowed above us during the ceremony. The light breeze seemed to highlight the feeling of love in the air, as Carol Merletti of Wedding of Your Desire, our officiant and main supporter of our marriage from the start, married us. We wanted our day to be as intimate as possible, a marriage of our individual tastes as well as a focus on our life together, past and present. We opted for an elegant Nantucket theme, because that is where we spent so much of our time. 

The vision was honed by wedding planner Rachael Gross of lolagraceEVENTS, who married navy and silver accents and took our visions and made them real. New England Country Rentals executed our fairytale vision with top-tier products to include platinum accents of stunning silver-rimmed tableware and knotted flatware. Ryan Designs, The Fine Print and Design Light Co., provided integral décor and design elements. Goosefish Press personalized hand-fed, antique letterpress invitations with a classic script and vintage-inspired engraved font with inks mixed by hand. Custom design day-of stationery, signage and custom logo were provided by Lynn Graham Designs featuring whimsical calligraphy by The Fine Print.

Even the flowers were symbolic of our theme: Blooms of Hope’s imaginative, seafaring and romantic floral arrangements perfectly enhanced the day in a show of protection, pure love, beauty and strength. My aunt’s business Twisted Stems, provided my bouquet and incorporated a piece of my mother’s wedding dress into the design!

After the ceremony we retired to an intimate reception and cocktail hour in Hyatt Regency Boston’s Adrienne Salon and Grand Ballroom. Crooner Antonio Cassisi wowed with Italian sounds during cocktail hour. Which was my absolute favorite – it was so romantic! The best part of the wedding is that I get to relive it each day! Prudente Photography’s gorgeous photos encompassed the emotion and personality of the day and videographer, I Do Films, told our storyline to perfection, looking for the beautiful moments and setting them in perfect arrangement. A wedding is a day that brides and grooms treasure forever—to us that is an understatement. We will forever love and cherish all of those who made our special dream come true.
