Impressionism: A French Inspired Wedding

A table design truly is a work of art and we can’t think of a more accurate example of this than with this table design inspired by the French Impressionism movement, which derives from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, soleil levant.  With winter officially in full force, we are lost in dreams of warmer days ahead of us. That’s why this week we’re all about embracing soft textures, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette with this French Impressionist inspired wedding shoot. The super talented Emily March Photography and Rebecca Rose Creative created a stunning styled shoot inspired by the 19th century art movement, which means lots of soft textures and pastel shades that come together like an artist’s dream.


As she talks about the concept, the event stylist and floral designer, Rebecca Rose Creative says:

This shoot was inspired by the beauty of 19th century French Impressionist artwork. In designing these wedding ideas, we strove to give a modern take on French Impressionism, which is always characterized by soft textures that blend together, abundant garden blooms, and vivid use of a pastel color palette. The gown, by Elizabeth Dye, quickly became the perfect element of inspiration, with its classic, romantic silhouette and unique blue-gray tulle overlay. Artwork by Monet lines the envelopes on the invitation suite and the colors, textures, and details of a French garden party are recreated for a modern elegant dinner setting.


We just can’t get over all the beautiful little details! From the styling of the napkins to the beautifully handcrafted stationary, this shoot was truly a work of art.
