A film theatre as a reception venue?! With scores of hotels and resorts to choose from, a film theatre isn’t the first venue that springs to the minds of engaged couples planning their fantasy wedding. Yet once this offbeat choice captures the imagination, like a good movie, it will simply not let go. There’s nothing more glamorous and glitzy than Hollywood, and it is the secret dream of many women to be the leads in their own romantic comedy.
To help stroke the fancies of star-struck brides, I got together with many of my friends in the industry to hold a wedding photography showcase at the Fox Theater in Redwood City to show exactly how it can be done. The styled shoot was graced with two models, two gowns, and a host of beautiful accessories and accents.
The details for memorable receptions included flower arrangements by Seasonal Celebrations and make-up and hair by Jenn and Michaela of Super! Makeup and Hair Artistry. The talented Giao Nguyen designed the old-school glam hairpieces that perfectly matched the gowns provided by Nouvelle Bridal Boutique. The linens and settings were provided by Blue Water Party Rentals. The 20s inspired stationary was crafted by Brenna Catalano of BC Design Studio. Lighting design was by LD Alliance.
The shoot was hectic but it was an incredible experience to work alongside my colleagues and come up with a beautiful spread that highlights the possibilities of this emerging, unconventional event location. Special shout-outs to Sarah Ward of Sarah Ward Events and Laurie of Seasonal Celebrations, it wouldn’t have been a success without you.
