Frida Kahlo has always been one of the most famous artists ever, and she inspires more and more creative people all over the world. Today’s wedding editorial is inspired by her, too, and it’s full of bold colors and impressive touches.
This editorial is inspired by the most famous painting Las Dos Fridas (The Two Fridas). Created at a pivotal point in her life, the painting depicts an expressive double self-portrait that symbolizes the artist’s contrasting, yet very separate entities.
Frida is known for mixing embroidered Tehuana dresses with bright blouses, scarves and accessories, so one look for the shoot was inspired by that: it was a black A-line dress with long sleeves and a plunging neckline plus a bright floral print. The bride was rocking a red and pink floral crown and bold earrings. the second look was a vintage-inspired off-white lace wedding gown with long sleeves, a high neckline and a neutral floral crown.
The dramatic tablescape featuring an overhanging canopy of roses, ranunculus, Icelandic poppies, hydrangeas, berries and orchids, displayed right above the color-blocked table arrangements and cacti. Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium created a trio of black wedding cakes for the occasion. The main cake featured a hand painted bottom tier and it was adorned with a double cascade of handmade sugar flowers, butterflies, and green leaves and berries. The two-tier cake had a rose gold bottom tier and a black top tier with a hand painted parrot. The third cake featured a crackle effect and was topped with a crown of sugar roses and sugar leaves.
