Ever since this styled shoot loosely inspired by Frida Kahlo landed in our inbox, we haven’t been able to take our eyes off it. Every bit is styled impeccably – from the gold place setting, to the floral crown, to the groom’s dapper blue checked suit, to the lush burgundy bouquet. Milton Photography, Birds & Honey Events, and Akiko Floral Artistry absolutely outdid themselves with this one!

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” -Frida Kahlo

From the event designer, Mona of Birds & Honey Events: Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón, better known as Frida Kahlo, has always been an inspiration to me. Frida, to me, was the epitome of a beautiful and “confident in all the right ways” kind of woman. Frida Kahlo was a “gem” in the truest and strongest sense of the word. Ever since I was a little girl I felt such a deep connection to her. Her eyes, her lips. I remember falling in love over and over again with her and her art. All those colours. All those colours and emotions she evoked. She was a revolutionary gal who liked to live in constant self-expression; I believe this is most evident in her art, the way she dressed, and the way she carried herself. She basically never gave a damn what anyone thought of her. I have always wanted to pay tribute to this beautiful woman and I soon began dreaming of how I could bring all of those beautiful colors and emotions to life as wedding inspiration for those brides who were wanting a wedding that was both soft and powerful all at the same time.
