Candyland Theme Wedding Fashion Shoot & Contest
May 23, 2011 - Weddings
For this photoshoot, we played our own updated and elegant version of Candyland. Colorful, fun and sweet as candy!
We wanted to have the perfect whimsical spring wedding and with the help of some truely creative Gainesville, Florida wedding professionals, we got it!
Our beautiful bride wore two fabulous Lazaro gowns and a funky Jim Hjelm from Solutions Bridal along with a custom two-tone pink Pettiskirt. The decor was designed by the ingenious Susan Minter at The Event Divas for her own unique version of the popular candy bar including handmade floral confections that look good enough to eat.
Sabrina Johns of 6th Street Station, did two lovely bridal up-dos that look great and feel great to beat the Florida heat and humidity. She also showed two looks for men, with our model Christian. Both a casual down windswept bang and a more modernized - vintage Hollywood look. Kara Winslow did all of the make-up looks that you see, starting with a soft natural bridal face pictured in the series under the Live Oaks and Spanish moss. Then for a fun, funky, hard candy look Kara amped up the color and put a bubblegum glossy lip on our model Heather. How fun would it be to do this at your reception? Love.
Custom invitations, soda pop and straw labels for our "Candice & Landon" were all designed and crafted by Giovanni Lugo of Footstone Ink.
The vintage 64 Mercury Comet compliments of owner Don Bell. If you are interested in having him chauffeur for your wedding day, he and his sweet ride are available!
We hope you are inspired to add something sweet to your wedding day!
