Last month a Fantastic Team and I got together and designed a styled shoot modeled after one of our most favorite Disney Princesses, Belle and her Beast.
We dip-dyed the Photographer, Raelynn Elizabeth Photography's original wedding gown a beautiful Ombre Gold, to bring Belle's Classic Yellow dress into the modern world.
For the Tablescape, I used my royal blue linen swagged up over a creamy yellow one, to tie into Belles blue Country dress. You'll see on the ground the Candleabra's that were prolific in the original film, as well as my nods to Lumiere and Cogsworth, as well as the enchanted rose.
What princess wouldn't want a pair of sparkly gold heels to go with her fabulous dress?
Lumiere tucked to one side of the stack of Belle's books from the library, while Cogsworth is standing guard on the other side.
We used the very iconic single rose as part of our decor, but only one had the magical dust twinkling off of it...
I pulled a large gilt framed painting off my own wall, and attached the Seating chart made by Boxed Wedding Invitations, as well as moss to give off this fantastic look.
Of course, Mrs. Potts and Chip had to make an appearance! While Mrs. Potts was relatively easy, I had to give Chip his iconic missing, well, chip. Yes, the broken piece was done on purpose! We even had Chips siblings in the drawer, all whole and healthy...
I just knew when I bought this chest that it would be perfect for a cake table...
Here's our nod to the Gaston's of the world. If you look closely, you'll see where we acknowledged the bar scene of the film. There's the Spittoon, the antlers from the wall, even a softer version of Gaston's armchair. And on the benchseat, you'll find the Beast's Magic Mirror that he sent Belle home with so that she might always be able to see him...
