Maria + Oscar’s Romantic French Vibe Wedding
We couldn’t be more excited to share Maria + Oscar’s incredibly beautiful wedding here on BLOVED Blog today! Captured by film photographer 2 Brides Photography whose artful approach I adore. She has such a talent for capturing the most beautiful colour tones, thoughtful details and such joy of people. The Wild Rose was the Floral Designer and Planner – and we’re so in love with her romantic designs!
“Working with Maria & Oscar has been such a marvelous experience from the start. Our entire team just fell instantly in love with them! It is quite rare that a couple gives you such great inspiration, and such freedom to run with it! They are both avid Francophiles. Their love for Paris and French culture reached its highest mark with a romantic proposal by the Seine.
They have been going there at least once a year, and love going into Paris old second-hand shops. So they really wanted their wedding to have a” French Vibe.”Another considerable interest they have is reading, and since Oscar is a journalist, Strindberg & Hemingway are big favorites. When at home, their favorite movie is” Midnight in Paris,” cuddled up under a blanket drinking Mumm – Hemmingways favorite champagne. To intertwine their wishes and to make that match the color scheme of midnight blue, dark red, and blush, they wanted something very Art Nouveau. So their wedding had personalized stuff like Antique Strindberg books and table numbers, where I laser cut a navy velvet Art Nouveau numbers.”
“Their seating chart was a large book cover. With the headline” All our favorite characters,” and each table was made to resemble a turnout book page, with a new chapter representing each table.The back of the book was made in maroon leather, and it even had a little bookmark with a tassel on it. All of their signage was very stylish in a very art nouveau way. With laser-cut wooden frames, and the same floral graphic on top of that that they had in their invitation suite.
Because they had a buffé style dinner, they decided to skip menus on the tables, and instead concentrating at making the place cards attractive. Inside of each place card, there was a question to the guests’ table. This turned out to be a great conversation starter, and the guest had so many funny stories to share during the dinner. The buffet was, of course, made by a french chef, running a small catering service company, and it tasted so good!”
