The Wizard of Oz is a movie that has been a part of people lives and living rooms for many years. The movie displays not only black and white, but also captures vivid color from the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. The movie “Oz The Great and Powerful” created a modern twist on an old classic.
With emerald being a consistent color for designers this year, and Oz being an ever popular event theme, Elegance & Grace Weddings produced and designed a stylized photo shoot that not only reflected the many elements of the movie, but recalled the story of Oz: from the black and white beginnings to the vibrant color transition in the middle, and most notably, Dorothy’s ruby red slippers.
The “Over the rainbow” theme for this side of the shoot was born with color being the inspiration – taking the flowers of many colors and create a garden full of life complete with an “over the rainbow” floral arch. The outdoor setting featured many beautiful bright colored flowers in shades of red, yellow and blue.
If a thematic, colorful, and not to mention ruby red wedding is what you dream, this shoot presents you with the creative elements that are easily attainable to adorn your wedding day!
The second phase of the shoot used inspiration from the black and white aspects of the movie as well as emerald city to create an atmosphere that embodied a sexy and sultry look within the castle walls. The tables were adorned with variations of emerald and gold tones and the walls included green uplighting. These colors come together to create a sophisticated and elegant “emerald city” look. The design concept of this photo shoot was to include emeralds, golds and reds which are fantastic fall colors in combination with the Oz theme.
