I’m proud to say you can find our styled US Grant wedding featured on the popular wedding blog Stylemepretty.com! We had a stellar team of vendors work with the US Grant to create a luxurious faux wedding dripping in chandeliers. Both the presidential suite and the Crystal Ballroom of the US Grant were the ideal settings for Theresa of BIJOU Beautiful‘s idea of a Modern Cinderella styled shoot. We collaborated with Heather of Sweet Revelry Events and Alise of Sweet Marie Designs to create a fairytale like story of a modern woman in a whimsical US Grant wedding, a Cinderella-esque story. We are so excited that Stylemepretty.com wishes to feature our work. Since it is such a popular wedding blog among brides to be it is a big honor to have them showcase our images. If you are not aware of the US Grant, it is a historic luxury hotel in the heart of downtown San Diego. The luxurious details and historic charm make it no wonder that many brides want a US Grant wedding. The old chandeliers are so beautiful and light up the ornate wall moldings. The Crystal Ballroom is where Heather and Alise set up the ceremony in front of a fireplace and lined the floor and mantel with candles and roses. Many future US Grant brides can find so much inspiration in the work of these talented, top-notch vendors!
We wanted to create a luxurious wedding where the dress was a showstopper. What’s a Cinderella with out her dress? Better yet, what’s a Cinderella without a groom! Our model Katie and her boyfriend Mitch were our awesome models. I think it may have been a bit of good luck because now these two are officially engaged! Now she can have a Cinderella wedding of her own… she already looks the part.
