Inspired by the ever-so-fabulous TV series, this modern chic Sex and The City wedding inspiration is one for the books! Filled with tons of silver sparkle, shades of pink, and black accents, Hetler Photography and The Day’s Design dreamed up a wedding look that any chic fashionista would be thrilled to have!
From Shelby of The Day’s Design:
Kellie (of Hetler Photography) and I knew we wanted to do an upbeat, modern styled shoot with lots of sparkle. While we love vintage and it is still very popular in Michigan, 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 why not create an event that Carrie and The Girls would be proud to attend? We completely immersed ourselves in Sex and the City, watching episode after episode and trying to channel our “inner Carries”. We took cues from everything, from Carrie’s newspaper print dress, iconic flower accessories and her love of simply stunning style.
While the décor was definitively a big factor, the fashion was an even bigger one. We wanted not only a gorgeous gown, but also glitzy accessories. A stunning crystal trimmed veil worn to the side served for our bride’s indoor look, while a custom designed tulle hat made the perfect look for our outdoor shots. The ladies at Cheeky Strut did an amazing job bringing the characters to life through hair and make-up.
Our G Rated version of Sex and the City showcases our “little” city as being great as any other. We paired one of Grand Rapids’ urban, warehouse-like venues with sequins and jewels all while keeping a clean, simplistic feel to the space. Modern Day Floral nailed the floral design with oodles of lush peonies and the glamorous ice sculpture was just the perfect amount of extra bling. Modern touches, such as leather couches in the seating area, were paired with wedding classics, such as white plates and chiavari chairs. Our gorgeous real life couple was so amazing to work with ensuring lots of picture-perfect moments, while our lovely ladies added some serious New York attitude. Throw in some martinis, Manolos and a big yellow taxi and we called it the perfect day!
Shelby’s description certainly says everything that I wanted to say about this Sex and the City wedding inspiration. I can tell you one more thing though- I absolutely love it!
So what do you think about pulling wedding inspiration from a favorite TV show or movie? Do you love this Sex and the City-inspired look as much as I do?
