We are so proud of this Same Sex Wedding Photoshoot and we are so proud to be sharing it with you today!
Here are a few words from Diana Chouinard
from Jubilee Events about her inspiration and then from TWD owner, Beth Chapman, as the shoot stylists as well.
"Designing this shoot was a treat -- a slight departure from our usual approach to creating wedding specific content. While our inspiration normally begins with the venue -- our surroundings and natural aesthetic, this shoot began with the couple. I wanted to focus more on their story and dynamic as that's what the wedding day is really all about: the two people we are there to celebrate. From there, the other pieces would come together.
The next biggest source of inspiration was our fashion!! When Enzo from Valentino Tailors came to us announcing his new venture in women's fitted suits, we were elated to say the very least. Truth is, we had been on the hunt for a local source for some time and knowing that our trusted colleague who was the source for so much happiness and comfort for our wedding parties and events made this worth celebrating!!
Imagining one of our brides in a fitted suit brought about the whole vision: fierce, powerful, strong, and modern. It was a mood we all felt in their presence and it's a feeling we always want our couples to feel on their big day. Our color palette was a striking black, mix of metallics and gentle touches of white. The tablescape was modern and forceful with florals bursting from the tabletop -- and that Latovola linen which, with black sequins changed to a gold or silver with the wash of your hand. We couldn't tear ourselves away!
With those details in place, our couple's personality and story shone through and every ounce of ferocity and powerful love between them was felt by those around them!" - Diana, Jubilee Events
"I love that this shoot celebrates love! I also love that this shoot had no rules when it came to fashion. One of the marriers was in a stunning fitted ivory suit from Valentino Tailors and the other marrier was in a sleek, modern sophisticated gown by Ines di Santo. I was inspired by Justin Biebers wedding and his wife Haleys veil. I enlisted the talents of veil designer Sara Gabriel to create a chapel length veil encrusted in Swarovski crystals spelling out One Love, the theme of our shoot. The bridesmaid models were diverse in size and color and all looked stunning in metallic dresses from Jenny Yoo and Hayley Paige. This shoot is going down in the books as an all time favorite to style..especially because of our incredible collaborators." - TWD owner, Beth Chapman
and no matter what, love conquer's all.
