Dark-and-romantic -Venice-wedding-ideas-4

It would be kinda hard to shoot on the canals of Venice and not have it turn out gorgeous. Gondolas passing, quaint sidewalk cafes, centuries old architecture—enough said. But even so, Heather Waraksa and Chic Weddings really outdid themselves with this bit of bridal inspiration. It’s dark, mysterious, elegant, and distinctly European.

Hello, McQueen! Heather says, We wanted to show that a black wedding dress doesn’t need to fall into the category of gothic wedding. It can be very charming, elegant, yet different.

Eva, Heather, this looks amazing. Wonderful setting, amazing props, gorgeous gowns and fantastic photography. :-)

Eva on Mar 17, 2014

I am so in love with these images Heather. You have captured the soul of the city and the fact that we didn't have much sun on that day in our favour, the soul of Venice came out even more! I love how you have captured everything and I am so happy we have worked together on this! Hope many more. Eva
