A Movie Inspired Wedding

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Last Friday, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 premiered and all of a sudden Facebook news feeds were filled with excited status updates and fans were lining up hours before the first midnight showing. It got me thinking of couples who were so touched by a movie, they chose to incorporate it into the theme of their engagement shoot or wedding day. 

Did you or do you know someone who had a spectacular movie inspired photo shoot? Write a comment, we'd love to hear about it! Also, for any couples who'd like to play dress up, i'd love to collaborate with you to come up with your own personal cinematic 'shoot. Sherlock Holmes or The Matrix, anyone? Oh yeah, I dig a good action flick that ties in with a passionate love story of course!

I recently coordinated a themed engagement shoot based on one of my favorite holiday romance films that involved ice skating, a pair of cashmere gloves, a novel and a $5 bill. Can anyone guess what movie it was? Can't wait to share the photos with you!

In the meantime, here are some favorite movie inspired photo shoots i've come across so far. The last one isn't a photo, but if you haven't seen it already, take a few minutes to watch this video. It may start off looking like any ordinary wedding video, but this same day edit video is definitely a game changer!

ps- Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I just wanted to say thank you to those who have been so generously supportive to me. I appreciate you more than you know. A huge Enamor hug goes out to you! Xo, ~E

Baby It's Cold Outside {Keep Calm & Get Warm!}

I don't know about you, but my Christmas tunes are in full effect and it's finally getting chillier, even in Southern California! With the drop in temperature (and without rain or snow), I still wouldn't rule out an outdoor wedding. Imagine a cozy fireplace and a reception under the stars.. pure magic!

How are you planning to stay warm (and stylish) for your winter wedding? Indoor or outdoor, you'll still need some coverage... beyond this day... you'll have your love to keep you warm!

The SuperNeutrals

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Amidst the thick of fall, stores are filled with warm and jewel tones. But planning an autumn or winter wedding doesn't necessarily mean you have to go that route. A neutral palette like champagne, taupe, cream, tan and grey can seem bland upon first glance, but is fashionably suitable year round. Layer with a touch of metallic sheen or pair with subtle colors like sage green or dusty lavender to create some depth yet maintain a lovely, cool calm.

What's a vintage inspired wedding without the vintage inspired dress? Each element influences the tone and theme of your overall wedding and while you can accessorize the venue by infusing elements that capture the vibe you're going for, nothing makes a statement like a show-stopping, extraordinary dress!

I look at TONS of wedding dresses all the time and after a while, many of them start to look alike. Once in a blue moon, a designer comes along and wow's me. So much that I have dedicated this entire blog post to the exceptionally talented Yolan Cris! I must have a thing for Spanish wedding gown designers as I wore Pronovias for my own wedding. I feel like they know exactly the right placement of lace to give a dress that extra oomph and the cuts make a gal look and feel like a goddess! These gowns are not for the traditional, conservative bride, nevertheless, YC's intricate beading detail and craftsmanship is outstanding! Here are some gems of her 2011 Vintage Revival and Diva Collection. Swoon away!
