I am always so impressed when people take a favorite movie and successfully infuse the details into an event (especially a wedding!) that is chic, elegant, fun, and not cheesy at all. It can be really hard to take inspiration so literally without going overboard! I thought it would be fun to take a look today at my all-time favorite movie-inspired weddings, photo shoots, and engagements sessions. Be sure to check out all the links to see the full photo shoots…they’re all incredible!
I think I can say with pretty good confidence that this Wizard of Oz styled photo shoot is in my top five all-time favorites. Toast Events took the idea of a sweet Kansas wedding for Dorothy, and the result was charming and delightful, down to the last pretty detail. There are even personalized place settings for each special guest, from the Scarecrow to Glinda! Picture by Melissa Schollaert Photography via Style Me Pretty.
Did anyone else thing that Pixar’s Up! was one of the greatest love stories ever? It is one of my favorite movies, not to mention, the perfect whimsical inspiration for a wedding or party celebrating love. This bride and groom used balloons everywhere, of course, but they also tied in bright colors through the flowers, bridesmaid attire, and other decor.

I still haven’t seen Water for Elephants, but from the pictures and previews I have seen, I can only imagine how beautiful of a movie it is visually! This photo shoot was inspired by the main characters in the movie, and I can’t get over all of the vintage circus accents and the incredibly romantic venue.

Did your heart just skip a beat too? These engagement pictures inspired by The Notebook are phenomenal. Not only does the bride look just like Rachel McAdams (um, jealous!), but the couple recreated some of the movie’s sweetest moments so beautifully. The truck, the canoe, the “if you’re a bird, I’m a bird,” the KISS…it’s all there! Picture by Blushing Bride Studio via Green Wedding Shoes.
What movie do you think would make amazing wedding/event inspiration?
