A Busy Week of Photo shoots and Soap Opera Weddings

Photo shoots, movie weddings and other fantasy design opportunities can be a great source of inspiration.  For a wedding designer a “fake wedding” can also be oh-so-much fun.  I’ve always loved soap opera weddings.  They often have the best flowers and lots {and lots} of them.  Like an almost obscene amount of flowers, but hey, it’s a soap after all and they always lay it on thick.

Brenda & Sonny got married on General Hospital last week and I definitely approved of the floral choices and overall wedding style.  {Brenda’s bouquet was a little blah for her dress and I thought it could have been a little bigger and more lush, but I digress…it’s inspiration nonetheless.}  Flowering branches, tulips, hydrangea, roses and icy, snowy details defined their floral style and I could easily see this soap opera wedding in a Vermont setting.

Back to the real world…Prepare to Wed had a photo shoot at The Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT on Wednesday and a handful of Vermont floral designers did a little fantasy wedding designing of our own.  I can’t share pictures of my tabletop design, but here’s a little sneak peek behind the scenes on the day of the shoot.

Make-up artists, models, photographers, florists, bakers and more took over The Round Barn.  Tweed River Video was there to talk to some of the vendors.

Another nod to honeysuckle with pink roses, tulips, ranunculus and godetia.

What’s your favorite fantasy wedding design idea?
