"This day was so fun & absolutely romantic. Since we couldn’t make it to Italy, we decided we would find the closest thing possible to designing something gorgeous, unique, & Italian-Inspired. I had grown up next to Gondola Getaway, located on the beautiful Peninsula in Long Beach. They are a venue that imports their gondolas directly from Italy to create an experience for their clients that is one of a kind. We designed a shoot to encompass and showcase the natural beauty and authenticity of the European Gondolas. Filling up the gondola with greenery and flowers, our vision came to life. And with the larger gondola, what is more perfect than a sweetheart table for a romantic one on one dinner. Using rich jewel tones with accents of brass, we created a bold design that enhanced the entire look. Krista Jon with Archive Rentals did an incredible job pulling together the design with her team. Every single vendor really helped create a cohesive look for this shoot—from the florals, to the cake, to the hair & makeup, to the dresses, to the invites. A big thank you to Danae Pearce Events for designing it all so wonderfully! This distinctive inspiration can allow brides to get excited when deciding what kind of a look they desire for their own special day! In today’s world, you can really get married just about anywhere – which allows for endless possibilities to create a wedding that is unique to you!” –Natalie Schutt, Owner/Photographer of Natalie Schutt Photography
