For our next blog post, we went back in time to revisit a gorgeous photo shoot we had the joy of designing: a Labryinth-inspired wedding at Up the Creek Farms. This shoot had a special place in our hearts, and even caught the attention of the wedding blog Every Last Detail, who wrote a feature on it. Conceived by Denise at Dogwood Blossom Stationary, the photo shoot was specifically inspired by the ballroom scene in Labyrinth, with details ranging from the thirteen-hour clock to the bride’s hair modeled after Jennifer Connolly’s in the film. We all had a blast getting together and watching the movie for inspiration, then turning that into a real-life whimsical experience. Thanks to That First Moment Photography, we are able to share these incredible details with you!
Up the Creek Farms served as the perfect setting for our ethereal theme, beginning in the gorgeous outdoor field featuring Spanish moss hanging from the trees. The bride and groom were dressed and made up to look like the two stars of the film: the bride’s gown, designed by LA Bridal Boutique, and hair, done by Marigold Scott Hair & Makeup, were made to resemble Sarah’s in the ballroom scene of the film. The groom was dressed in a gorgeous tux by Absolutely Fitting.
The decorative details began outside, with a velvety blue couch set up in front of a pair of doors. On one side was a 13-hour clock, which read a slightly-edited quote from the film: “Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way to you.” Another fun detail came in the form of table assignments held in small “crystal” balls, ornaments hanging in front of the pair of doors.
The florals done by Flowers by Lesley evoked the perfect balance of mystery and whimsy, utilizing the color scheme of pink and white. One fun accent was the boutonniere worn by the groom, which featured a small watch face.
The interior of the barn was decked out in lavish decor, all influenced by moments from the film: the chairs, which were modeled after one of David Bowie’s many costumes; the table centerpieces; the chandeliers; and of course more gorgeous floral arrangements by Flowers by Lesley. The rentals were provided by A Chair Affair, and the lovely paper goods, such as the menu, were created by Dogwood Blossom Stationary.
At last, the food! The amazing cake featuring delicate lace and handmade sugar flowers was made by Everything Cake, and the gorgeous array of desserts and snacks were prepared by Two Sweets Bake Shop. The variety included brownie pops, French horns, and glitter popcorn.Each detailed accent added to the stunning appearance of this photo shoot, and we were delighted to be a part of it. Much thanks to the venue and all the vendors below for making this day possible!
