Dubai-based shooter, Paula Scalco has brought us some gorgeous images against an incredibly beautiful mid-east backdrop. Teaming up with some of the most talented wedding pros in Dubai, soft grrens and golds are paired up with white. From the team: " This wonderful styled shoot accentuated the traditional gold and white wedding colors while incorporating an earthy feeling. Using this year's Pantone color of the year - green - alongside bamboo elements, we managed to achieve a more contemporary, soft, and distinctive look to the whole classic white and gold wedding palette.We also wanted to highlight the bride in her classic beauty, and as such chose an off-the-shoulder with elbow-length sleeves and grosgrain belt with a small bow at the waist by St. Patrick. The bow added a touch of fun femininity that highlighted our overall theme. Our hair and make-up artist, Monica from Blush Beauty, created a simple, bronzy, earthy toned makeup. Topped with an elegant up-do, we managed to create a timeless, classic look which flatters almost every skin tone and eye color. As for the table decor, Irina from Blossom Tree Dubai used over 40 gold vases to re-create a table runner, after which she then proceed edto fill these vases with fresh orchids. In order to bring in a more modern touch, we included bamboo mini planes and chameleon chairs provided by Party Social. As for the wedding cake, Little Miss Cupcakes designed a gorgeous cake that screamed modern minimalism. To play off the earthy feel and vibe, we decided to add an engraved bamboo cake topper to the side of the cake. Ritu from Creative Box perfectly balanced the traditional and the modern used our color palette, designed beautiful monochromatic wedding invitations, welcome pamphlet, and menus monochromatic using a mix of typography and calligraphy.The finishing touch was..... balloons - yes huge white balloons!! Because why not? Thinking outside the box can deliver amazing results.Having said that, we'll leave you with a few highlights from our Up, Up, and Away! styled shoot captured by the talented Paula Scalco Photography at the Four Seasons Resort in Dubai."
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
