Sex and the City Wedding Inspiration

Eeekk!!!  Did you see my feature over on Every Last Detail yesterday?  I am beyond excited to be published and so happy to finally share all the results from this super girly and glamorous shoot Kellie of Hetler Photography and I put together.  So sit back, relax and scroll through all the pretty (and make sure to stay tuned until the very end for an amazing video surprise!!)

Kellie and I knew we wanted to put together an upbeat, modern styled shoot with lots of sparkle. While we love vintage and it is still very popular, we visualized a sleeker event, with lots of downtown glam. As our concept began to unfold, we aimed to define and pinpoint our big city feel. And no city defines big better than the Big Apple!  So we began creating an event that Carrie and The Girls would be proud to attend…

To start the day, the fabulous ladies at Cheeky Strut knocked it out of the park with the hair and make-up for our models, bringing all the Sex and the City characters to life.

And now for one of my favorite parts of the whole shoot – the wedding video!!  Inspiration Video blew me away with the results, it still gives me goosebumps!

Photography: Hetler Photography  /  Event Design & Coordination: The Day’s Design  /  Floral Design: Modern Day Floral  / Hair & Make-up: Cheeky Strut  /Stationary Design:  Emily Ross Creative  /  Cake:  Mirabella Confections  /  Venue:  The Cheney Place  / Videography: Inspiration Video  /  Chiavari Chairs: The Rental Company  /  Bride’s Dress & Veil:  Bridal Elegance  /  Bride’s Hat:  The Day’s Design  /  Ice Sculpture:  Luba Petrash, Grand Rapids Community College  / Catering: Chef Josh Ferguson

We completely immersed ourselves in Sex and the City, watching way too many episodes and channeling our “inner Carries”.  But it was just too much fun to resist!  Thank you to all the vendors that took part in bringing our vision to life. ( and feel free to pop on over to Kellie’s blog to see her take on all this fun!!)
