We love movie-inspired engagement photos, so ahead of this Sunday's Ocsars, we have even more gorgeous film-spiration for your wedding 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 and Star Wars), 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.
The planner behind this shoot described it as such:
"I was excited to figure out how to tie in a bow and arrow to a wedding inspiration shoot. I was ready to be challenged and ready to bring an edge to weddings that you don't normally see. By creating the Hunger Games wedding shoot I believe it really shows that absolutely everything can be inspiration to a couple when planning their wedding."
Wrapped homemade bread made a perfect Peeta-inspired favor.
From the photographer:
"My whole goal in doing this nod to Star Wars with a Han and Leia wedding 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."
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."
This shoot was inspired by Bella and Edward's wedding 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.
This real Winter wedding 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!?"
The company that provided the furniture and props, Found Vintage Rentals, had this to say about the look:
"Pallets stacked to the ceiling, reclaimed wood, an abundance of trunks; the environment was mysterious. Piles of books created walls. Hanging chairs made the tunneled entrance. Trays became shelves. Luggage turned into treasure chests."
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."
The stylist for this shoot explained the Jane Austen inspiration:
"Like 'Pride and Prejudice' itself, it's a study in contrast; the refined, neoclassical sensibilities of Darcy meet with the wild, heartstrong tendencies of Elizabeth . . . The result? An update on the traditional wedding breakfast for the contemporary bride and groom, one that combines the elegance of weddings past with the playful individualism of the present."
