We also have the pleasure of hearing from the bride, Brittany, as she shared with us the details of her love story with PJ and how her dream day came together.
I so love it when people find an excellent theme in a movie, and then they create an inspirational party design concept from it. That is what this board highlights, snippets from a fabulous Hugo inspired bridal shower styled shoot from First Pick Planning, Lizzi Photography, held at POP Champagne and Dessert Bar in Pasadena, California.
If you aren't aware, the movie Hugo took place in 1930's Paris. There's a lot of attention to detail in the styled shoot that holds the theme. From the vintage keys, to the antique camera, even down to the champagne cork place setting holders, which even the pace setting cards are like vintage movie tickets, it's fabulous! Of course the homage to Paris is strewn in with Eiffel Tower tags and French writing.

Monika shared with us how this photo session came to be:Like with most weddings, the day almost seems to be a blur as everything goes into overdrive and time flies quicker than anyone would expect. Knowing this, the bride and groom decided rather than rush the pictures in-between and during their special events of the day, they would comeback in front of the camera, just the two of them, as a married couple one week later.
I've so missed featuring wedding related photography on a constant basis, and have been grateful for the submissions I've received this past year, while I took a hiatus from Two Bright Lights, where most of my features have come from. Well, that hiatus is no longer and I'm happy to report I've signed back on! Let the wedding related photography continue onwards and upwards...fingers crossed!
One such photographer that emailed me a beautiful real wedding to feature is Monika Thorpe! She is a Chicago wedding photographer, and presented me with this cute couple's wedding. I was drawn in as soon as I reviewed the lovely photography, and this lovely couple. The gleam in their eyes says it all! This will be a two part feature as we have Kelly & Scott's wedding, but we also have their post-nuptial pics, too! The wedding is quite intimate, and then the tempo changes a bit as the post-tying the knot pics take place one week after, in and around bustling Chicago! To see that feature, click here.
What's not to love about this color palette? It's soft, elegant and just calms the eyes. Lavender and seafoam green pair well beautifully, especially on a beach setting. Love the use of natural lavender and greenery mixed with the lavender hued touches, and green glass bottle. The natural elements and soft presence of lace, with a few seashells here and there add a nice touch to the whole setting.
I featured this piece before, but in a two part series, as there are so many decor and styling details, plus the gorgeous couple and their captured moments. Today I'm featuring this yet again, in its entirety...it is just too pretty to not share again.
Please enjoy and swoon along with us as you take in the beautiful imagery that Best Photography captured...and get ready to pin!
