Words from the Photographer:
One of the wonderful things about being a photographer is having the ability to express ourselves through our art, and to curate beautiful imagery. I wanted to create something that combined some of my most loved interests. This is when I decided to design a fairy tale wedding inspired by Alice In Wonderland.
I have grown up a Disney fan (who hasn't, right?) and one of my favorite films is Alice In Wonderland. I admire how different she is amongst all the princess' (even though Alice isn't really considered one) and maybe this is what I loved most about her character. I loved how she wasn't afraid to be bold, to go outside the lines, and to speak her mind. While in wonderland she comes across things out of the ordinary, people out of the ordinary and she perseveres.
We recreated a lot of the elements in the film, from the tea cups, clocks and whimsical florals to the "eat me" cookies, and we even had Lewis, Carol and Alice join our mad tea party as our very important guests.
The designs chosen for the ceremony and reception site included a mismatched combination of shabby chic rentals, bringing to life the mad tea party. We showcased vintage books, keys, and even The White Rabbit made an appearance throughout the shoot.
We ended our shoot as the sun set and our couple enjoyed reading a book, much like when the story began with Alice and she entered wonderland as her sister read her a book.
