Welcome to my fake wedding with Style Me Pretty guys!

I know- a lot of wedding, wedding, wedding to lead up to the actual wedding but bear with me because it’s a lot of content & I feel like I’ll only be sharing this with you once.

( Also we will discuss how I forced my family to re-take wedding photos…another post though? ).

Anyway, if you follow along on Snapchat you know Style Me Pretty hosted a fake wedding for me & Michael. It was one with a bit of edge. Hosted by vendors who aren’t afraid to do their vision on their own terms. Based  around the idea of Modern Gothic Romance that breaks the rules in all the right ways, you know?

The vendors are all from LA or SD which is why I REALLY wanted to share. Since we got married in Cabo, it’s been hard to recommend local people. But have no fear, I got you covered with these talented, amazing people.

On that note, I’ll let the creative vendors explain their vision for The Skinny Confidential FAKE wedding shoot ( keep in mind this wasn’t actually our real wedding but a rough draft? ). Stephanie Weers take it away:

Vendors for Fake Wedding Shoot:

From Ro and Co EventOur Modern Gothic Romance design concept was heavily inspired by Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential. Combing The Skinny Confidential blog for design ideas and inspiration, we noticed a strong palette of black and white with soft hints of blush and lavender. We were especially influenced by the style of the condo Lauryn shares with her fiancé Michael, who happens to be our groom model for the shoot. It has a sleek, clean and modern aesthetic with bold artful statements throughout.

Lauryn had mentioned that her own wedding would be deep and moody, the complete opposite of a traditional, sweet white wedding. Having seen the Goth trend all over the Fall 2016 runways, we knew it would be the perfect touch of badass needed to capture Lauryn’s style and create the high fashion editorial look we were envisioning. With that, our Modern Gothic Romance concept was born and absolutely came alive through the lens of Rebecca Yale Photography.

The gorgeous white marble interior space of Vibiana, formerly LA’s first Archdiocese Catholic Cathedral, was the perfect backdrop for a dramatic ceremony and dinner scene. The venue’s former confessional booths served the lounge space well.

Fashion stylist extraordinaire, Annie Cavallo, chose the most glamorous dramatic nude Inbal Dror gown with flowing train to grace the ceremony scene. To add a hint of rebel, we paired it with a daring, yet sweet Alice and Olivia leather jacket. We love the embroidered back detail!

A moody black Galia Lahav gown with plunging back and cape added high drama to the dinner scene. The playful white Inbal Dror dress would be the perfect choice for dancing the night away. Michael’s classy Tom Ford tux complemented Lauryn’s three dramatic looks beautifully. Suzie Moldavon nailed the modern goth look, first with a deep oxblood lip and sleek ponytail and then softening to a lighter mauve lip and sleek all down hair and finally creating a relaxed party look with a boho braid.

Emblem Flowers created romantic arrangements in the moodiest of hues. Deep tones of oxblood and plum were contrasted with mauve and dusty rose with hints of gold. The ceremony scene was overgrown with lush greenery and a dramatic statement piece in the altar’s alcove.

Vintage furniture from Found Rentals provided the perfect contrast with modern tabletop selections from Casa de Perrin. The dining scene was heightened with gorgeous marble and floral menus from Yonder Design.

Yonder Design’s dramatic invitation suite featured a pressed flower suspended in Plexi and wrapped in leather and velvet. Additional details like The Mrs. Box velvet ring box and Silk and Willow linens added a luxe feel throughout.

On the menu, Superfine Bakery served up a collection of delightfully moody tiered cakes with hand created sugar flowers. Redbird’s pastry chef, Kasra Ajdari, whipped up delicious mini pistachio pavlovas and salted caramel and orange blossom mini donuts. Redbird’s bar director, Tobin Shea, created cocktails that fit the mood of the shoot.

This dramatic and moody interpretation of a wedding fit Lauryn and Michael’s personalities and brand to a T. We can’t wait to see how their real wedding comes alive!

Lauryn here, YA YA IT’S COMING I PROMISE. I just take a while. In the meantime, do you like our fake wedding shoot? We had a fucking ball if we’re being honest. Michael like actually thought he was modeling so there’s that. LOL.

    oh my goodness, this post / shoot is stunning! I am in LOVE with the black dress and that gorgeous marble set up. The Style Me Pretty team really knocked it out of the park! That oxblood lipstick is gorgeous – do you happen to know the brand/colour? I also LOVE the fishtaill braid – the contrast of the dark flowers with the icy blonde is seriously killer! x

      It turned out exactly how I pictured! I can’t remember but I can find out! Thanks so much Shannon! xx

    The white dress with the leather jacket is so fun! But the black dress seems more like you. I love this shoot. When I saw the headline I definitely thought it was going to be about retaking your wedding photos, I’m dying to know what you didn’t like about them and how you recreated everything. Did you not like any photos? Or just the ones with your family?

    Everything in this post looks so baller! Love it! I literally can’t decide which dress of yours I like best, and don’t even get me started on how gorgeous that cathedral is. I’m maybe just a little jealous. If anyone wants to throw me a fake wedding, I’ll be over here… x

    This is UNREAL. You are so gorgeous. That first dress is unbelievable and I’m obsessed with the braid they did for the third dress. I love everything about this.

    That black gown looks incredible on you! Even if this was a fake wedding, it’s still awesome that you have photos of yourself in so many gorgeous gowns!
