Summer Circus Wedding

Over the summer the Artisan Maskers collaborated with a whole team of amazing artists to put together a fantasy Circus-themed wedding shoot.  Here’s a quick spread of the carnival madness that ensued!

 

First, we have our Tightrope Walker bride.  She preps for the big day with a gorgeously bizarre assemblage of bridesmaids (below): a Clownette, a Lion Tamer, a Fortune Teller, and even a mustachioed Ringmaster!

 

Next up, our Clown of a Groom and his fabulous Groomsmen: the Magician, the Roustabout, and, okay, the “Lion”, too…

 

A few choice shots of the Bride and Groom…

 

And, then, the gang’s all here!  Time for the party to START!

So, what do YOU think?  Could a Circus be in your marital future?  ;D

 

 

Please, have a look at all of the incredible artists that made this shoot possible!

Wonderland Wedding…Part 2

By NeverAPlainJane

I don’t care what you say, you’ve dreamed about a fairy tale wedding.  Even if it was just once. And even if it wasn’t your typical fairy tale.

Over the next few months I’ll draw inspiration from the combined genius of Lewis Carroll, Walt Disney, Tim Burton, and a score of other Alice fanatics to bring you a series of curiouser and curiouser Wonderland Wedding ideas.

Today, forget all about a white wedding.  If you are going to be queen for a day why not make it

The Red Queen

 (via LA Weekly*)

I’m not saying you have to have heart-shaped red hair (although that would be awesome!), but you could definitely set the tone with this amazing ring-bearer pillow from My Haley Girl.

Sweet, isn’t it?  But why stop at sweet, when you can go sassy.

Of course, we can’t forget your partner in passion.

I adore the steampunk touches in this reception décor mood board that refer to the Red Queen’s Victorian roots.

What about you, my darlings?  Are you a bold ruler of Wonderland or does your wedding fantasy take you down another rabbit hole?
