Star Wars Wedding Inspiration

starwars styled 01 Star Wars Wedding Inspiration

What groom (or even bride!) doesn’t love Star Wars, right? And I’m sure when you think of a Star Wars inspired wedding, you are thinking – ugh, so cheesy! Well, with a modern take on Star Wars, this shoot proves that you can include your future husband’s interests in your wedding without being corny! Filled to the brim with subtle Star Wars details, this shoot is sure to please both bride + groom with it’s modern take on the films. Love all the touches of dark navy blue, gold, and white with hints of black and yellow. Stars are another fun motif, being it was STAR Wars. icon smile Star Wars Wedding Inspiration  Thanks so much to Meg Ruth Photo for the photos and the inspiration for this fun shoot today!

A bit more about the inspiration behind this shoot from Meg:
Five years ago I married a Star Wars geek. One year into our marriage I told him, “I think it’s about time I saw these Star Wars movies you’re so in love with so I understand what you’re talking about.” After Luke picked his jaw up off the floor and declared I was lucky he didn’t know about this “deal breaker” prior to our union, we watched the three original movies. Now, even though I might not be a Star Wars geek to the effect of my husband, I can appreciate his obsession. And on top of that, I wish I had fully understood the extent of his interest before we planned our big day. My whole goal in doing this nod to Star Wars with a Han and Leia wedding was showing women that they can include their future husband’s interests without making the entire event a themed kid’s party. Subtlety and classiness can be infused in between the tie-fighters and x-wings.

Safari Inspired Palm Springs Wedding

When bride Lisa didn’t know quite where to start in planning her wedding, she turned to the most natural of inspirations: her home shared with groom Lenny. The couple picked fabrics and colors that reminded them of some favorite motifs — wallpapers, upholstery, or a favorite t-shirt. Leave the rest to the dream team of Annie McElwain, Sitting in a Tree Events, and The Floral Lab for one beautiful wedding recipe!

 Safari Inspired Palm Springs Wedding

From the bride, Lisa: In the perfect world we would have had a backyard wedding, but unfortunately our backyard isn’t big enough. We chose the La Casa courtyard at La Quinta Resort for it’s backyard vibe and because we knew the resort would be a perfect place for our guests to spend a relaxing weekend. We set the date almost sixteen months before the wedding so we had plenty of time to figure out exactly what we wanted and make or find all of the personal touches. There were several sunrise trips to the Rose Bowl flea market to find vintage furniture and suitcases, hours spent on eBay finding vintage table coverings and blue mason jars and many late nights spent with the sewing machine or hand stamping place cards but it was so worth it.

Mod Wedding Ideas

We’re closing out our week-long celebration of Valentine’s Day with a bodacious styled shoot from a solid dream team of talent: Nicole Rene Events, Izzy Hudgins Photography, and French Knot Studios, who wanted to bring a funky spin to one of our favorite holidays. Bringing a touch of Pop Art was the perfect way to achieve this, and the ladies were inspired by some of the brightest of bright hues in candy-colored nail polish.

From the stylist, Nicole: For this shoot, I knew I wanted to do something modern, funky, bright, and a little hipster. Izzy of Izzy Hudgins Photography and Audrey of French Knot Studios were perfect to collaborate with to capture this vision. Red, pink and white are so predicable for Valentine palettes, instead, our colors were inspired by a collection of candy colored nail polish. Not wanting to leave Valentine’s completely out of the project, we hinted at the “love”ly holiday with motifs of hearts, arrows and XOs throughout the detailing.

Mountaintop Wedding Ideas

Deep reds, woodsy details, a mountaintop setting — all of these come to mind when we think of our favorite winter wedding motifs. Photographer Catherine Marciniak and stylist Carla Esutache of Style Perfect Weddings and Events whipped up this styled shoot with all of these visions in mind, choosing the mountains of North Carolina as their backdrop. Everything was perfectly topped off by some lovely floral arrangements from From this Day Forward Wedding and Special Event Design.
