This wedding shoot was inspired by famous painter Frida Kahlo, her art and life and the muted tones of the desert

Frida Kahlo was a lady of wit, of beauty, of immense creativity and dedication to her people, and her craft. She was a talented artist and a very passionate person, who had a turbulent relationship with her husband. That’s why Frida keeps inspiring more and more people, and her art and life became a source of inspiration for this wedding shoot, too.

Noir Floral gathered a team of talented vendors to bring that passion alive in the subdued colors of the desert. Floral-filled and brimming with watercolor succulents, this vibrant invitation suite was crafted by They Call Me Spindles. The calligraphy piece was hand-lettered by They Call Me Spindles and the quote is from a poem called “Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell” by Marty McConnell.

Deep teal and burgundy for the bridesmaids’ dresses from Vida Moulin rounded out the moodier feel of this styled shoot: one was a teal polka dot plunging neckline one, the second was a short burgundy one with a triangle cut, mismatching and stunning. The bride donned a simple and elegant dress from Cleo and Clementine and of course a gorgeous oversized floral crown, which Frida Kahlo often wore – I’d say it was her personal piece. The dapper gents were rocking suits from Magro Clothing and mismatched ties.

The table was laid with a floral-filled tablecloth, in gray, blush and gold tones. Blush candles and beautiful and lush moody florals perfectly finished up the look. The wedding cake was simply white but with bold roses to tie it up with the whole shoot.
