Inspired by the ballroom scene in the movie Labyrinth, which is a forever favorite for many of us, this project was extra-special for many of the vendors involved. For this styled shoot designed by Anna Christine Events, feminine was paired with masculine: flowing fabrics paired with tooled leather, lush florals paired with old clocks and weathered metals. With Claire Pacelli Photography behind the camera, every detail of this whimsical styled shoot at Up the Creek Farms was captured to perfection.
The wedding invitation we designed for this styled shoot was a scalloped-edge gatefold invitation printed with a custom pattern in shades of cream, warm brown and sepia. A satin ribbon wrapped around to close the invitation with a custom wax seal. These were housed in a brown silk gatefold box with a rich brown ribbon and a bronze brooch embellishment.
Inside the ballroom, table settings of glitter glass chargers from A Chair Affair were topped with wedding menus printed in a vintage patina, embellished with a wide, peach-colored fabric ribbon then layered with crisscrossing ivory ribbon. Next to each setting, scroll-like place cards were wrapped around fresh peaches (in the film, a poisoned peach transported Sarah to Jareth’s whimsical Ballroom in one bite). We also created round escort cards, that rested inside glass bubbles atop lush green mosses, and hung in front of free-standing rustic doors.
The bride dazzled in a gorgeous gown from LA Bridal Boutique reminiscent of Sarah’s grand ballgown, and wore lengths of ribbon in her hair; the groom was sleek and sophisticated in a sharp gray tuxedo from Absolutely Fitting. Fabulous floral accents of pale pinks and whites designed by Flowers by Lesley added hints of romance, complementing the stunning 5-tiered pale pink and white wedding cake fit for a Goblin King and Queen by Everything Cake. A stunning dessert buffet with the most decadent of treats was created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.
