French Impressionist style shoot

Categories   Wedding Fashion, Wedding Inspiration

Some of us love to dream of living in a glamorous gold-trimmed mansion fit for royalty, Monet paintings adorning the walls, antique lace gowns hanging delicately along an open dressing room. For those dreamers, we present you with this fantastical collaboration between A-listers, Corbin Gurkin and Ceci New York. It doesn’t get any more romantic than hand died napkins, a nude & gray palette, antique gold and pink jewelry, and a dinner table set in a secret garden. If after these ethereal photos you still want more, make sure to pick up a copy of the latest issue of Pacific Weddings magazine.

From Corbin… I’ve always found such inspiration in the work of impressionist paintings – the soft gestures, subtle palette, and ethereal nature completely encapsulate the look I love to create in my own wedding photography. There’s no better season than springtime in Paris and when conceptualizing this inspiration shoot I wanted to bring together a group of artisans who could translate a vision of the impressionist inspired garden party. I collaborated with Ceci New York who so beautifully captured the nude & grey palette I had in mind with touches of ombre throughout.

Ashley Brooke Perryman, our remarkable makeup and hair stylist, used soft pink tones to create a romantic look for our model and we loved the natural braided hair that so many brides are drawn to right now – it was the ideal effortless look for our bride.  Delphine’s gowns were paired with custom jewelry from Kristin Morris in antique golds and pink.

The typeface was reminiscent of the belle-epoque iron works and café signage. I’m particularly drawn to texture, and Ceci used a canvas envelope to bring in a painterly quality to the invitation set. The result was complete perfection.

Nancy and Anne of Fete in France found the perfect spot for our tablescape – the Commanderie in Montmartre. They hand died our ombre napkins, used antique containers for the florals, and sourced an iron table that created the garden party aesthetic. We paired our table design with stunning gowns from Delphine Manivet, whose delicate lace and soft white material reminds me of antique French tea dresses, completely apropos for our styling and design concept.

The talented bakers at Sugarplum Cake Shop completed the design with a hand painted blue and nude toned cake that featured subtle brushstrokes and watercolor details.

What’s not to love about this shoot! Thanks so much for sharing ladies!

Lindsay on Jan 25, 2012

Sorry, this is the art historian in me, but the shoot looks more Art Nouveau/Alphonse Mucha inspired than French Impressionism inspired. Is that what the designer meant?

Kim on Jan 25, 2012
