The Hunger Games inspired wedding

Photos via You & Your Wedding

I have stumbled upon these photos a few days ago, while browsing You & Your Wedding website for my own wedding inspiration, and I simply couldn't resist the temptation to share. You know how big of a Hunger Games fan I am: I've read all three books several times, I have them in their audio form on my iPhone and I can't even explain it properly, but there is something in that story that touches the most inner parts of my brain and soul and I love reading every single page over and over again.
And while this photoshoot might not represent precisely my idea of chic and glamorous reception, there are many beautiful and eye-catching details that are simply too beautiful to pass: like the sea of ruffles on Katniss' dress, simple yet glamorous golden chairs, exquisite calligraphy place cards, pretty gold-trimmed vases with daffodils, simple white candles, homemade fruit pies that could have come straight from Peeta's bakery, and natural linens. And the cherry on top? A stunningly beautiful Mockingjay wedding cake. I love when a photo makes me dream and these have kept me dreaming for several days already. 

Photos were taken by very talented Carmen Santorelli.

  4. How gorgeous - I love no matter what the theme of a wedding as long as it is part of you both and this is obviously such a massive part of this lovely couple (and you it seems!!) :) I hope you found lots of inspiration for your own wedding - these pics are gorgeous.

  9. You know I love his hat. I think my Godfather wants to wear a similar hat to walk me down the aisle.

  19. I love the colors! Gosh, I feel so relaxed and tranquil just looking at these photos. So so lovely. I am reading the third Hunger Games book now (I finally got around to reading the second one and absolutely flew through it- so amazing!), and I've been struggling to stay interested. I'm not even 100 pages into it yet though so I'm still holding out hope that it will start getting exciting!
