Fashion Wedding

October 26, 2009


I’m so excited to share with you the fashion from Wendy’s wedding! Take it away Wendy:

The ceremony was inspired by a short film in Akira Kurasawa’s “Dreams”; the fox wedding.  –Have you seen this?  The music played was Michael Nyman’s “String Quartet No.2: 3.III”, which is more unusual but beautiful; when it started, the bridesmaids and I started the long walk from behind the hill top to the top of the aisle.


The girls were instructed to keep their parasols down over their faces, and to walk tightly in pairs of 2 (except for my sister in the lead).  Guests had no idea I was in the back of this long, colorful train.


One by one, they peeled off down the aisle (folding up their parasol and trading it with my dad for their appropriate bouquet), and then stood along the side of the chairs instead of in the front front. The flower girls tossed pink carnation petals, which I liked because they kind of remind me of peach blossoms (again, an inspiration from Kurasawa’s “Dreams”).


When it was finally my turn, I kept my triangular-shaped white parasol over my face until the right moment in the music and, like the others, closed it and took my bouquet from my dad and walked down the aisle with him.


Thank you for sharing Wendy!

[…] love this series of photos which I found on Engaged in Paris (they are from a real wedding story on Santa Barbara Chic, with the cleverest entrance by a bride to her wedding) but I think the pastels and strong colours […]

That is one of the most creative entrances I’ve seen. If I were the groom I would have been on the edge of my seat. beautiful colors, beautiful dresses, just lovely! Great blog. I have officially subscribed!

That is a very interesting and beautiful unique wedding. Thanks for sharing!

Such lovely Wedding parasols, very pretty.

Oh my gosh, this is so lovely! What a beautiful wedding.

It was bar-none the most magical and scene-bursting wedding I have ever attended. The violin music completed the brief stop in Never-neverland.

The best part of the reception was, of course, the dancing of Thriller by the wedding party.

This summer celebration makes the sting of autumn all the more painful…sigh.

The stark background, makes the dresses pop all the more.. so beautiful!!

I get goosebumps looking at those photos! What an awesome day. You’re the best Wendiesel. Props to Kelly for putting it all together into the most beautiful wedding I’ve been to.
