French Impressionist Wedding Inspiration with Sofia Coppola Style
Today’s Impressionist wedding inspiration is served up Sofia Coppola style, with pompom velvet heels, colorfully sweet treats and all the delicious pastel eye candy in between. Any French artist would clamor over the crowd for a chance to capture this European wedding scene, and my are we glad someone did!
That someone is the inimitable Lisa Blume Photography, whose ethereal images bring us closer to Heaven every time.
Lisa and Mady Sieracki both had a hand in choosing the sophisticated and tastefully vintage fashion pieces across the board.
Well, Emily Baird, you sure know how to make our hearts sing! Held in place with thin velvet ribbon, this illustrated invitation suite is a testament to the beauty of this era.
With design and floral expertise from Eventi Floral & Design, we’re wondering how exactly we stepped into this classic Monet.
Is it just us or do the abstract water lilies on this cake from Fluffy Thoughts look like they’re jumping from the frame?!
The bride sports a dashing array of vintage-inspired gowns from Claire Pettibone with exquisite detailing and artistic hints upon the fabric, while a classic gray suit from Tuxedo House was the name of the game for this groom.
Can we have this assortment of heels from Bella Belle Shoes and Dolce & Gabanna at our disposal everyday?
From the photographer, Lisa Blume Photography: Look past the subjects to capture the emotion of a moment, realizing that every shadow tells a story. Light pastels, lush blooms, and soft textures combined to create a work of art in this feminine Impressionist inspired shoot. Monet was most inspired by nature, so other than some of the bridal portraits, our shoot largely took place outdoors. The majestic landscape of Great Marsh Estate was a lush backdrop for our art inspired wedding table. Texture and layering of pieces on the table replicated the layering of paint in Impressionism and the blurred lines between subjects. The French Impressionists, such a Monet, depicted ordinary scenes with particular attention to light and movement. Natural lighting was key for this bridal shoot, with special attention to details such as texture and color. The bride wore a romantic, flowing Claire Pettibone gown with floral appliqué on the bodice that mimicked the pattern of the table linen. Little details such as dangling earrings, a dress with fringe, a bouquet tied with hanging ribbon, and a loose hairdo all added to the sense of movement we sought to create.
We should reflect on this table… with patterned linen and pretty lilac glassware from The Ark, BBJ Linens and Select Event Group.
Manicured lawn and topiaries aplenty, there’s just no getting over this architectural dream: Great Marsh Estate.
We know you’re probably dying for more, so feel free to continue down the Monet rabbit hole with this blended watercolor wedding inspiration too. Never forget!
