Inspiration to Reality: Melissa + Bassil

We had the pleasure of working with Melissa and Bassil to plan their Fairmont Hotel Macdonald Edmonton wedding while they were living in Toronto. Melissa knew she wanted a wedding with Art Deco influence and a nod to The Great Gatbsy. A classic palette of navy, silver and white combined with crystal and pewter accents conveyed the formality needed to perfectly reflect the theme.

Below is the inspiration board we used to design Melissa + Bassil’s wedding:

Wedding Trend: Art Deco

A noticeable trend this year in design – whether in fashion, interiors or events – is a return to the rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation of the Art Deco era. We’re even seeing this on the big screen with this weekend’s release of one of the most highly anticipated films of 2013, The Great Gatsby.

Whether you’d like to incorporate a few touches from the era or have a completely Art Deco themed wedding, here’s some eye candy for inspiration!
