A Frida Kahlo Wedding Inspiration: Part I

Monday, July 9, 2012

Why Frida?  I don't know what it is about Frida Kahlo but it all started when I was engaged and planning my wedding.  Something about Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican surrealist painter often depicted for her unibrow, inspired the theme for even my own wedding.  It wasn't long before I knew I wanted to open pandora's box with Frida once again.  But this time with my feet running so that I could create something a little like this...

I would describe Frida's work as folksy with layers of darkness.  I wanted to modernize the theme but ring true to the colors of Mexico.  My goal was to create a wedding theme inspired by Frida Kahlo -- infusing bits of Mexico, bits of fashion, and the ideas that often dance in my head.  There was so much heart poured into this not only by myself but many other artists who collaborated with me.  I will describe in much more detail their contribution in other posts when I also share the images.  For now I hope you enjoyed the first introduction to my Frida Kahlo series.  A project I've longed to quench for quite some time :)
