A Fairly Tale Collaboration . . .

It was truly a fairly tale collaboration. In addition to other wedding industry specialists, Derks Formals & Menswear also helped ID Bohemia event couture, design and planning in recreating their vision and interpretation of Beauty and The Beast.

Pulling inspiration from Beauty and The Beast and Dracula (based on Bram Stoker’s Victorian Gothic novel), ID Bohemia’s Inspiration Palette for the photo shoot was filled with numerous shades of deep reds, Victorian era inspired accessories and decorative pieces, a church aging in perfection, and beautifully themed table settings. For more photos of the photo shoot, they will be featured on WedLuxe’s blog and ads as well as Bridal Fantasy’s 10th Anniversary Magazine! For now . . . after weeks, days, and hours, of hard work . . . the result was magnificent . . . here are a few photos from the shoot:
