An Aladdin Inspired Wedding
Growing up, Disney’s Aladdin was one of my favorite movies. The catchy tunes, the vibrant colors, and Raja, of course … they were/are near and dear to my heart. So the thought of doing an Aladdin inspired wedding was an absolute dream come true.
And with the new live version of Aladdin that was, at the time, coming out (I’m a little late in blogging this post), we knew that we had to create a special shoot to satiate our inner love for all things Disney.
It’s All About Location, Location, Location
We chose the historical Curtiss Mansion as our canvas. Its adobe-style architecture and desert sand-like walls became a natural backdrop.
We focused on recreating the bright, bold jewel tone colors of the original cartoon-animated movie we all grew up with and loved. But at the same time, we wanted to ensure that its realism could appeal to the modern couple.
If Aladdin and Jasmine were personified into live-action characters, the team at Blue Orchid Events and Design and the rest of our creative team would imagine that their wealth would reflect a unique, modern twist with its rentals, which you can see with this serpentine white acrylic reception, mirror, and gold rental collection.
The iron details at the Curtiss Mansion add to its charm and an extra nod to our Aladdin inspired wedding. And let’s just take a moment to admire the draping florals by A Lavish Moment Event Design. Aren’t they just gorgeous?!
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect and detailed cake. Two Fat Cookies really took our inspiration and created this magical piece of art. Would you believe it if we told you that the jewels on the cake are all edible? In fact, everything on this cake is edible. And how adorable is little Abu?! Even the jewel and feather looks almost identical to the one the Sultan wore! This cake is utter perfection.
The Smallest Details
Weddings are all about the details. I don’t know what it is about the bride’s ring, but it screams Jasmine to me! But the groom’s ring is absolutely timeless (get it?! Yes, I know, I’m cheesy haha)
A mix of delicate details and the perfect colors of gold, turqouise, and pink make for the perfect stationery.
Look at how handsome our groom is:
What a gorgeous pair they make!!!! 💕
I’m absolutely blown away by their lounge area, accompanied by their very own magic carpet!
This dress and headpiece is exactly what we pictured a modern Jasmine would wear. The jewels in the headpiece and top of the Anna Campbell gown resemble royalty and wealth (hello, Princess Jasmine), while the simplicity and flowing bottom half of the dress shows the bride’s playfulness and need to travel (and can you just imagine how stunning it would look while flying on the magic carpet?!).
This Aladdin inspired wedding couldn’t have happened without the perfect team:
