For a wedding as timeless and lovely as Grace Kelly’s, consider venues that convey classic beauty. Venues like the Hotel Monaco or the Meridian House. After all, your venue is the backdrop for your photographs and sets the tone for your wedding.
Choosing a beautiful or historic venue will immediately express to your guests the theme of elegance. Your venue also helps tie in other aesthetic aspects of your wedding – a classic setting can creatively inspire your décor and florals.
Choose classic décor that stands the test of time.
For a wedding as lovely and classic as Grace Kelly’s, consider classic décor that’s not too trendy or DIY. From the table settings to the floral arrangements, to your wedding gown, every detail should exude sophistication. Select pieces that will stand the test of time, and always be beautiful. Here are some samples from recent weddings that showcase classic décor and accessories. It’s inspiration for planning your own elegant event!
Embrace black and white photographs.
Sure, color can be beautiful. But there’s just something special about black-and-white images. Think of the stunning scenes of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in the classic film Roman Holiday. Without the potential distraction of color (there’s always one guest that wears something a little too bright!), you can focus on the emotions, the moments, and the story of your photographs.
The team at Love Life Images knows that timeless weddings are both classic and fun. They embody elegance and also joy. One of our favorite venues also embodies these terms: the Hotel Monaco.
