{Styled Shoot} Masquerade! Paper Faces on Parade...

If you know those lyrics, you're familiar with one of my favorite scenes from my favorite musical "Phantom of the Opera".  I want to go to a Masquerade ball just as extravagant and stunning as the one in this musical...do those really exist?  One can dream, right?!

This isn't the first time I've mentioned Phantom of the Opera, by the way.  I created a Black Swan meets Phantom of the Opera bridal inspiration board, which won in a poll I asked our loyal readers of which collaboration they'd like to see.  I love the dark underlying tones, yet the elegance and all the romantic touches. It works so well for the Halloween season!

Why all the talk of Masquerades and Phantom of the Opera?  Well, today we are bringing to you a Masquerade inspired styled wedding shoot that we are just drooling over, submitted by Wren Photography.   Jennifer from Wren Photography shared this with us about this gorgeous styled shoot:
Just for fun we, Wren Photography, partnered up with many great local wedding vendors to show how different a Halloween/Masquerade inspired wedding could be. The bride wore a gorgeous silver gown enhanced with a black birdcage veil, lace gloves, sparkly heels, and the most gorgeous ring we have ever seen. The bridesmaids wore rich purple dresses that went perfectly with the colorful bouquets they carried. The gentlemen, looking very dapper, were the perfect side kicks for the lovely ladies. The gorgeous ceremony and reception location was overlooking the shores of Lake Superior in downtown Marquette, MI. The black & white linens and modern centerpieces complemented with the exposed brick of the historic building was the perfect touch to this offbeat wedding..The ceremony took place inside while onlookers, dressed up in elegant masks, enjoyed cocktails. After the ceremony the bridal party rode along the lakeshore in a brand new limo bus, which also provided a stunning backdrop for pictures with it's mirrored black finish. The guest dined on some delicious cocktail food, darling cupcakes and a scrumptious grand cake. All these touches made the bride & groom's styled wedding day both as mysterious and macabre as it was fashionable and fabulous.

Behold the Masquerade styled shoot, designed by Knots and Kisses, captured by Wren Photography:

Gorgeous!  The vibe of this shoot is mysterious and romantic. and we looove it!  The colors are bold, dramatic, and just elegant.  I'm loving the touches like the black feathers in the bouquet, the candelabra, and the Masquerade masks.

Many thanks to Wren Photography for submitting such an amazing collaborated shoot!
