“Their eyes met and they stared together at each other, alone in space,” wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald in his famous book, The Great Gatsby. In that described moment, the two lovers Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan admit their long-burning love for each other in what is known as one of the greatest romance novels ever written. It was this exciting, fast-paced, opulent-party filled story that inspired this styled shoot featured in the Arizona Weddings Magazine 2016-2017 issue!
Our vendors did a simply stunning job of pulling together this masterpiece. StepOnMe Photography captured the quiet passion between the couple and the dazzling 20’s-influenced details. Stylish Events by Lisa planned the intricate setting that makes us swoon for the ritz and glitz of the early 20th-century party scene. The low-lighting and closed drapes with glimpses of fine wine set a moody scene that is both timeless and modish. It combines familiar elements of modern luxury with memorable details reminiscent of the Roaring Twenties. The bride and groom looked quite chic and effortlessly sophisticated while lounging about the shoot. We love the bright lip and wavy hair held back with a glimmering accessory on the bride, as well as the dapper tuxedo and bowtie on the groom from Celebrity Tux and Tails. The avant-garde florals by Butterfly Petals brought together this marvelous Great Gatsby styled shoot.
