Does anyone else have a mild case of the post Valentine’s Day blues? We had to remind ourselves today that the romance definitely doesn’t have to end, and this stunning session we’re about to share is helping big time. Planned + designed by Joelle Charming, we’re loving every last bit of this ballet-inspired scene. Joelle teamed up with Brian Tropiano, Krista Jon + Archive Rentals at The Colony House in Anaheim, California, where they set out to create something beautiful, timeless + romantic in the most straightforward way possible. We can’t wait to see how all the creative brides out there take the ballet concept (one of our faves!) and apply it to their wedding.
Joelle says, I’ve always wanted to be a ballerina. There’s something so classically beautiful about ballet. About the way that dancers hold themselves, and the ethereal way their bodies move. My ultimate goal was to convey all of that in this inspiration shoot.
There couldn’t have been a better dress for this editorial than this compelling design by Lindee Daniel.
That bouquet by Krista Jon! Le’Swoon, le’sigh.
An unbelievable rendition of a sweetheart table!
Absolute floral heaven…
Did you notice all the cute swan touches? Such a sweet nod to the ballet…
A big thanks to the artists below for sharing this breathtaking editorial with us today!
