Be our (wedding) guest!
The much-anticipated live-action “Beauty and the Beast” starring Emma Watson is set to be released on Friday. But if you simply can’t wait another day to get your Disney fix, allow this “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired wedding shoot to hold you over in the meantime.
Photographer Raelyn Martellino of Raelyn Elizabeth Photography teamed up with Baldwin Bridal and Events and Sylver Weddings and Events for the fairytale shoot at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook, California.
It was chock-full of darling details including:
A modern take on Belle’s signature yellow gown:
An enchanted rose centerpiece:
Table assignments displayed in book form:
”Be our guest” invites:
A candelabra and clock ― shoutout to Lumiere and Cogsworth!
And a “tale as old as time” sign:
Raelyn told The Huffington Post that brides and grooms are already embracing the theme for their upcoming weddings.
“I already have brides asking me for inspiration,” she said. “I even have one who is planning a big ‘Beauty and the Beast’ adult birthday party. I’m pretty sure we’ll be seeing all kinds of red roses, candelabras, tea cups, and clocks with arms this year. I’m hoping we’ll even see some yellow dresses!”
