We all love a little touch of Paris wherever possible, and we love the Gothic architecture represented in so many Parisian landmarks. La Belle Fleur Events combined preppy chic with a Gothic style a la Chanel’s Karl Lagerfield, with purple florals by Natural Beauties Floral, Inc. and shot by Ashley Biess Photography.

Conceptualized and designed by the creative minds behind Natural Beauties Floral and La Belle Fleur Events, this Parisian-inspired shoot came to life in the beautiful gardens of the Morton Arboretum. The lavenders, deep purples and black colors photographed brilliantly against the greenery of the hedges. A black wedding dress was a must for the edgy-but-elegant avant-garde style the designers were dreaming of for the shoot. The design was made complete with gorgeous florals, bell jars, a wedding cake detailed with lace, vintage bicycles, and butterflies. Enjoy!
