Thanks to Green Wedding Shoes for featuring this shoot.
As one of the greatest love stories of all time, Romeo and Juliet has been the inspiration for many songs, movies, and other art pieces throughout the years. However, the 1996 version with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes often stands out as one of the most beautiful renditions for its blend of modern and classic, with an amazing graphic quality and the juxtaposition of bold modern scenery with this classic story of true love. It was these qualities that inspired Miranda ( Sugar(ed) Occasions) to dream up a wedding based on the innocence and passion of young love in a strikingly contemporary setting. I love the custom ribbon with the phrase “A Legendary Love” carried throughout, and the golden spikes placed on the cake and throughout the centerpiece that she made herself. She has such a creative mind, and I’m so happy I was able to photograph it. So many other vendors contributed to this shoot and were so wonderful to work with. Unearthed Vintage provided all the gorgeous furniture (check out all of their beautiful pieces), the invitation suite was handmade by MakeWells using watercolor and ink, the girls of Hot Pink Style took care of all the hair/makeup/styling, and the Wynwood Walls/Wynwood Kitchen was the absolute perfect setting for this theme!
