Frida Kahlo: A Wedding Inspiration Shoot

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Creative Team: Mignonne Handmade (accessories & styling assistance), Ouma (dress)Kendra Enriquez (invites)Jessica Gallegos (hair & MUA)Chateau Studio (location)Emily Burton (florals)Modern Revival (furniture & prop assistance)The Agency Arizona (model: Jessica Zindel)

I've had the idea of a Frida Kahlo wedding shoot since I've been engaged.  But I knew the day I was ready to design a wedding inspiration shoot, I didn't want to follow trends I saw online.  I envisioned blush colored drinks, a paleta bar instead of a dessert bar, ice cubes filled with flowers, and the rich floral blends of Frida Kahlo everywhere.

My creative team killed it.  When brainstorming invites with Kendra, I mentioned I wanted the invites to be in watercolor and I envisioned a sketch of two people dancing with the colors spilling out of the lines.  "And can we add texture somehow?  Tissue paper is very popular for Mexican festivities... maybe we can ruffle her dress?" BAM.  Kendra gave me exactly that.  Actually, she gave me artwork! But I can say this about so many of the individuals I worked with.  Like I promised, I'll be sharing some behind the scenes images and where I pulled inspiration from and executed it.  Today, I'd love for you to simply enjoy the images :)

And hey world, can we do more of this? A L L D A Y.  I can't get enough of it.
