Marie Antoinette-Inspired Wedding
When Miles and Corina started to plan their wedding, they decided on two big factors. First, they were going to get hitched across the country in San Francisco, in the city where they started dating. Secondly, they were going to take inspiration from the original fashionista herself, Marie Antoinette. That combination, along with an awesome antique store venue, Rojo Foto, and those sunny SF skies gives us today’s supremely pretty wedding. This color palette is so fresh and fun! Congratulations, you two!
From the bride. We wanted our wedding to have a very romantic and vintage feel to it, with a touch of quirkiness…and for both of our personalities and style to truly reflect through it. Our theme inspiration came from Marie Antoinette. I’ve always loved Marie Antoinette’s fashion aesthetic, so we tried to work in that whole era but still make it about us and a little more modernized. Since we were going with the whole Marie Antoinette look, we used a lot of those colors from that era only much richer.
We knew from the beginning that we wanted to do a lot of DIY projects to make it more personal and unique….and it was so wonderful to have our family and friends be a big part of that. My bridesmaid Liz has always been so crafty, so whenever I would find something that I loved or an idea that I had she insisted she make it! She made my veil, my garter, the vintage button and flower boutonnieres, and the bride and bridemaids’ bouquets.
We wanted our wedding to be in San Francisco, which is where we had our first date. We were looking for something very unique and a place that had chandeliers galore! We stumbled upon this antique shop which was aboslutely amazing, and they had just started to open up their place for weddings. It was exactly what we were looking for….quaint, rustic, romantic, intimate and chandeliers everywhere!
Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Let your wedding be completely you because in the end you’re the one who has to look back and know that it was YOUR perfect day. Take in every moment from the beginning of being engaged to being married because it all goes by way too fast! Definitely invest in a great photographer, because you want to make sure you have someone capture every sentimental moment.
