Photo Shoot : an Elegant Wedding in the Floating City {aka Venice}

Recommended Posts

I've got a such a special treat for you today - a beautiful Venetian inspired photo shoot that is overflowing with glamour and glitz. Here's a little bit about the story behind this lovely shoot . . . When Marni Gold of Creative Custom Card Boxes and Cherin Szul of Customized Wedding Creations started to come up with a concept for a photo shoot, they had a difficult time narrowing down exactly what it was they wanted to focus on {as they both had tons of ideas to work from}. In the very early planning stages, Cherin found herself in a local store almost drooling over Venetian style masks and just knew she had to work with one. Marni suggested they work around a Venetian theme to make the mask a focal point and from there everything started to fall into place. That's when Cherin chose Jessica from The Crafty Chemist to make a Venetian styled mask for the shoot in the color palette of deep red, antique gold, and cream. I LOVE these colors together.









The lace look on the invitations and the Venetian design overlay was created by Carey at Lasso'd Moon Designs.



The Estate at Florentine Gardens was selected as the venue for this shoot because of it's beautiful grounds and stunning stone structures which lent a more European ambiance to the shoot.


Jennifer from Nuage Designs helped to procure a flowy, yet elegant tablecloth as well as gold shimmered chair covers to which Cherin added a personal touch by painting on the bride and groom's initials.  To continue with the flowing aspect, the team wanted to incorporate more than just flowers into the bouquet, so they decided to work with Marie from Emici Bridal and incorporated some feathers and brooches into the hand made silk floral bouquet giving it a more unique look.




Other elegant little touches reminiscent of Venice included the tile "Amore" sign on the dessert table created by Cherin, the Venetian Lace on the card box that Marni crafted, the Italian designed chocolates from Donna & Company Artisanal Chocolates, and even the addition of refreshing Bellini's as the signature cocktail.




Other vendors for this shoot also incorporated the Italian touches whether it was through the colors, designs, etc. Don't you just love this elegant look?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
