A Modern Glam Wedding Inspired by Tron

tron wedding ideas

I’ve received quite a few emails asking for help incorporating your fiance’s interests into your day – how can both your personalities be seen on your wedding day? Well, today + tomorrow is all about the groom! Pulling ideas from their favorite movies, drinks and hobbies – plus a huge feature on groom fashion, so I hope you all enjoy!

What if your fiance loves Tron and video games? Can you still have a glamourous wedding that incorporates some of his interests? Christina at simply modern weddings has found the perfect way to pull a few inspirations from the movie – mainly the dining room scene – to create an ultra glam wedding! This is modern + edgy infused with romantic lush floral – and a touch of futuristic fantasy meets artsy eclectic. I don’t get to share lots of really modern weddings, so I hope this helps inspire those of you dreaming of a modern wedding. :)

A bit more about the shoot from Christina (including Larrissa’s sketch above), “Since I adore all things modern, the concept for our shoot was inspired by the dining scene in the movie Tron Legacy. I just loved the contrast of the harsh digital world with the home’s ultra luxe decor. In my mind I dreamed of what a wedding in this digital tron world would look like. Once I teamed up with Trista Lerit and Larrissa with Inviting Occasion, our creative minds went modern glam crazy!!

The floating silver disc digital curtains in the home décor became our inspiration with Tiselle Letterpress for the invitations. The stationery suite was made even more fantastical by tianyi letterpressing silver ink onto black buttery suede paper. Sweet and Saucy also played off this concept with her delicious dessert creations!

Our bridal party fashion needed to be just as fabulously styled as the design. Our bride’s gown was a couture Elizabeth Fillmore that was a perfect hint of drama for the look of the shoot. We selected jewelry and textured party dresses from Rent the Runway for outfitting the bridesmaids, and our guys were sleekly suited with pieces from Express.

The concept of “the grid” was made reality by Larrissa creating a 3 dimensional grid installation piece as the stunning ceremony backdrop. Believe it or not, it was made out of black and clear straws!! She incorporated silver cootie catchers and plastic bottle turned floral to give the design a whimsical touch. We played off the same grid idea for the lucite reception table, but used silver mesh placemats for a different texture and look. Once the lighting hit everything, it was magical!

And of course we had to bring that mysterious blue elixir into the shoot as our bliss cocktails!

I’m a W Hotel fanatic, so i knew their newest property W Hollywood Hotel would be a perfect fit for this design. They have a magnificent ballroom space that can be completely transformed for your look. I was even inspired by their fabulous white croc hallways when selecting the white croc chairs for the shoot. Their property was a perfect fit for that hip, glam look we wanted!

And maybe some Daft Punk for the reception music? :) Below is a fun behind the scenes video from the guys at Shadetree Films.
