Our Blog post today is inspired by the movie The Great Gatsby. We love the allure of all of the glamour and high society that the movie brings to life. You just want to get dressed up and be invited to such an elaborate event. Since the movie has had so much hype with the elaborate parties that were done at that time we have been getting so many questions and inquiries about doing a Gatsby inspired style wedding. They really knew how to party with style and class.
In 2009 we worked with such an amazing couple Elizabeth and Jeremy who had come to us with their wedding inspirations. They wanted to do a Gatsby inspired wedding which was so fitting to them. Elizabeth works in fashion and loves the glamour and details. Jeremy works for a Bridal magazine so every days he sees weddings, so they wanted theirs to be different in every way. We really wanted to create their Gatsby inspiration and have it also tailored to them. You can say they were way ahead of the trend back then. Where to even begin on how every detail was taken care of from the trollies that picked up the guests as well as all the vintage cars for the wedding party: to the The Bourne Mansion which was the setting for the dinner reception; the the flowers in shades of purples; to the lace dress that Elizabeth wore; to the vintage backdrop bar scene that was a back drop for some fun photo; to the 1920’s styled champagne glasses that were constantly filled with champagne. There was such attention to detail that Gatsby himself would have loved to be invited to this wedding. Did I also mention that they were a stunning couple and fit the part of glamour and sophistication! We have attached some amazing pictures to share with you on this wedding. It is still one of my most favorite couples as well as one of my favorite styled and coordinated weddings.
