Big-Screen Inspiration For Your Big Day

Dec 16 2015 - 10:30am

We love movie-inspired engagement photos [1]. Ahead of one of the most exciting movie releases of the year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens [2], we have even more gorgeous film-spiration for your wedding [3] or e-shoot. From sweet animated flicks like Up and Tangled to a few romances like Twilight and Safe Haven (and geeky picks like Harry Potter), there's something for all types of theatergoers. If you and your beloved share a love for the big screen, here are some of my favorite movie-themed big-day shoots.

Wizard of Oz

This fun shoot answered the question: what if Dorothy and Oz fell in love?

Harry Potter

The stylists behind this Harry Potter shoot were going for a more grown-up take on the series. The result was an "earthy, aged but magical feel." With butter beer, naturally.

The Hunger Games

The couple who tied the knot at this wedding [4] read the Hunger Games series together and were totally obsessed!

Star Wars

From the photographer:

"My whole goal in doing this nod to Star Wars with a Han and Leia wedding [5] was showing women that they can include their future husband's interests without making the entire event a themed kid's party. Subtlety and classiness can be infused in between the tie-fighters and x-wings."

Safe Haven

The vendors involved in this Safe Haven-inspired shoot explained:

"For the reception we wanted to go bold and fun with a wardrobe change & thought a patriotic and summer theme would be fun since they celebrate the 4th of July in the story."

Twilight

This shoot was inspired by Bella and Edward's wedding [6] in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, but with a twist. The stylist set the scene in California with some '20s art deco and vintage flair. The name cards tied to chess pieces was a nice touch.

Alice in Wonderland

This real Winter wedding [7] was thrown for a German and French couple who met in Las Vegas. The bride, Sabrina, explained the Alice in Wonderland theme:

"A lot of fantasy is needed to think about the fact that two people from two different countries, with two different languages met in Vegas, fall in love and get married. That's actually how we found our wedding theme: FANTASY! And what reflects fantasy better than Alice in Wonderland!?"

Indiana Jones

This wedding [8] shoot was inspired by the warehouse scene from Indiana Jones's Raiders of the Lost Ark and played off a couple of quotes from the film: "Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" and "'X' never, ever marks the spot."

Honey & Poppies, who created the jungle-inspired florals, added:

"To me, tropical flora is lush on foliage and scare on actual blooming plants, so I wanted to use just a few really stunning exotic cattleya orchids and gardenias. Both of these flowers also evoke the 1930's and 40's (Indy's time period), when they were commonly worn by ladies out on the town."

Romeo + Juliet

The style of this wedding [9] shoot was inspired by the 1996 adaptation of William Shakespeare's tale Romeo and Juliet. It was both gothic and romantic.

Brave

The look of this Brave-inspired shoot was "mystic yet ethereal" with "woodsy details."

Water For Elephants

According to the photographer, the shoot was an imagining of what a wedding [10] between Jacob and Marlena (played by Robert Pattinson [11] and Reese Witherspoon [12]) would have been like.

Water For Elephants

It was even shot at one of the locations used in the movie, the Orange Empire Railway Museum.

500 Days of Summer

Love this wedding [13] shoot inspired by 500 Days of Summer, featuring many of the movie's downtown LA locales.

The tablescape cleverly incorporated the architecture theme, along with Summer's bedroom wallpaper and Tom's chalkboard wall.

The Great Gatsby

With The Great Gatsby film out this Summer, we saw lots of beautiful 1920s wedding inspiration [14]. In this shoot, the bride had her '20s hairpiece and fashion styled to perfection.

Up

If you loved the Up engagement shoot [15], you'll love this real wedding [16] inspired by the animated movie. It included so many sweet details from the flick!

Where the Wild Things Are

Green Wedding Shoes put together this vibrant and playful shoot inspired by Where the Wild Things Are.

Anne of Green Gables

A vintage wedding [17] dress and a lot of books completed this cute Anne of Green Gables wedding.

Tangled

At the end of the Disney flick Tangled, it is alluded to that Rapunzel and Flynn get married. This shoot was a photographer's vision of what that would have looked like.

Tangled

The color scheme of lavender, peach, and gold was inspired by Rapunzel's dress in the film.
