Today’s incredibly beautiful styled shoot was inspired by the most romantic city in the world: Paris! The overall tone was drawn from the manicured gardens, perfectly trimmed hedges, + stone fountains like those you’d find in a lush Parisian garden. The team then infused the setting with a flurry of charming French design elements + a rich color palette that included different shades of mint, emerald, gold, black + white. You’ll notice some fun details throughout, like the seating chart based on Parisian Arrondissements and yummy French treats at the dessert buffet. And I’m super in love with the model’s look, which was influenced by Brigitte Bardot!
We love the invites by Love Vs Design and you can find them in the GWS Shop!
From the team, Since Paris is mapped out in such a unique way, with several Arrondissements dividing the city, we were instantly inspired to make a seating chart based around it. Each guest was assigned to their own Arrondissement, as displayed with the string art, and again at the dining table with personalized gold frames at each setting.
The jadeite, gold, and polkadot place settings were accented by gold flatware and a gorgeous centerpiece reminiscent of Parisian gardens. The black lacquered box was filled with an unexpected element, green kale surrounded by boxwood hedges. Proving that flowers aren’t always necessary for lush natural beauty.
The streets of Paris are endlessly lined with cafes and bakeries, and we wanted to recreate this with our dessert table. The spread included croissants, eclairs, profiteroles, and a gorgeous cake, accented by jadeite cups and saucers.
