Wizard of Oz Wedding Inspiration

world of oz inspiration

Today’s whimsical wedding editorial, based on The Wizard of Oz, is just about as lovely as it gets! As fans of the beloved film ourselves, Analisa Joy Photography‘s beautiful images definitely transported us to super fun place. But possibly what we love most about this one was the perfect balance of subtly and precision carried out by the team. We had to look twice to notice the fun nods to the movie. But once they began to appear (yep, that’s a yellow brick road aisle + a sweet little garland-adorned pup that looks an awful lot like Toto!), we realized that this styled shoot was not only a fun bit of eye candy, but could be hugely inspirational to all couples who are currently planning a colorful, whimsical wedding celebration! Here’s a bit more about the shoot from the planners at Couture Events:

We brought in a touch of magic, a dash of red glitter, and our own yellow brick road to create this wonderland. They say there’s no place like home but we wouldn’t mind hanging out here for a while…

And what could be better than a sequin Ban.do heart boutonniere to celebrate that notion?!
