Kiss the Planner Creates a Great Gatsby Themed Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot

Brides everywhere are having a love affair with the heart-throbbing theme, The Great Gatsby

This May has been heating up not only outdoors, but in theaters too. This summer’s hottest movie is translating into the latest wedding craze. “Brides everywhere are having a love affair with the heart-throbbing theme, The Great Gatsby” says Aviva Samuels, Destination Wedding Planner and winner of the Trendsetter of the Year Award 2012 by Wedding Planner Magazine.

A show-stopping performance was recreated as a wedding inspiration photo shoot at the lovely Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. Ms. Samuels of Kiss the Planner set out to replicate the feel of the Gatsby Estate and chose this magnificent National Historic Landmark in Miami, with its ten acres of exquisite formal gardens. The property which was built in 1916 is reminiscent of Gatsby’s Estate and was the perfect choice to showcase the wedding details, including a wedding ceremony, sweetheart table set for two, bridal party couture and styling, floral bouquets, flapper greeter, wedding cake and sweets station.

Set in the Roaring Twenties, the bridal party was styled in sparkle encrusted bridesmaid’s gowns from Adrianna Papell, formal wear from The Tux Shop and hand-made jewelry from Elaine Arnold Design. The wedding gown that our beloved heroine Daisy wore was provided by Mariolka's Bridal and her lovely headpiece from January Rose Bridal Accessories. She and the other models were styled flawlessly by Gorge Hair and Makeup. The fanciful flapper provided by Boca Entertainment designed to welcome wedding guests to the soiree as they first arrived.

The stylish wedding ceremony in Vizcaya’s Gardens and opulent floral tablescape were created by J Morgan flowers, along with the stunning bridal bouquets accented with jeweled handles. Coordinating linens, chargers, glassware and flatware provided by Panache a Classic Party Rental Company. The wedding cake designed and crafted by Paola Cake Atelier got rave reviews. Noteworthy was the beautiful sweets station, handmade invitation, escort cards and menu crafted by A Sign of My Love.

Jamilah Photography captured the stunning images and Key Moment Films gave an upbeat behind-the-scenes look at how the shoot was put together.

“Stylized photo shoots are a great way to showcase your ideas to potential clients” says Aviva Samuels. “While Kiss the Planner was responsible for the overall vision for the shoot as well as coordinating all the parts, the individual vendors involved had a chance to showcase their extraordinary talents, each contributing to the overall success of the creative team.” The stylized photo shoot with all its intoxicating details was published on May 9th, just before the opening of the movie remake on Style Unveiled, a premiere wedding blog.
