Get ready to be wowed in a big way. To be completely inspired to the point your mind is floating with fabulous for the rest of the day (or week even). Because we haven't stopped gushing since Wedding Nouveau sent over this pick-your-jaw-off-the-floor gorgeous shoot beautifully captured by Picotte Weddings from their new Spring Revival Issue. It's luxe, cultural and overflowing with so much pretty (including a deliciously beautiful cake from the Sweet & Saucy Shop) - it's safe to say the fourth installment of their oh so gorgeous magazine is going to be be-yond.

And now for some behind the scenes goodness from Seaglass Cinema...

From Wedding Nouveau... For the fourth issue of Wedding Nouveau magazine, I knew we had to go big or go home. Recently, I'd seen that Chanel "Paris-to-Bombay" collection, which quite honestly took my breath away ... and so the inspiration for our spring cover shoot was born.

Often times we see multicultural events steeped in vibrant colors. Believe me, I'm a fan of color. But I wondered — is it possible to have a multi-cultural event that's muted? Instead of reds, pinks and oranges, could you pull it off in beige, creams and soft classic colors? I knew I couldn't do it on my own, so I got together the ultimate style theme to pull off what would become our Parisian Souk-inspired cover, influenced by a fictional Moroccan Studio owned by Ms. Coco, herself...with a little fun and flirtiness of course. So the stage was set. Inspired by luscious Moroccan patterns, Middle Eastern textiles and Parisian tailoring, we had a ball putting it all together for the spring cover, and I couldn't have asked for a more cohesive style team.
