A Colorful Wedding Shoot in Dubai

June 27, 2016
With planning, styling, and design by Dubai based Save The Date Wedding, and florals by Blossom Tree, this styled shoot is so full of inspiration and beauty. And this color palette? Let's just say that it's all kinds of pretty!

With breathtaking views of the Dubai skyline from one of the most luxurious venues, the Penthouse on the Palm Jumeirah, it's a good thing that Joem Aldea + Paula Scalco were there to capture it all — because this shoot is a total MUST-see!

From the design team, "The décor was designed to reflect a baroque style characterized by rich luxury and ornate detailing."

"The vision came to life with the use of burgundy, plum and violet with some accents of gray and gold." And oh. my. goodness. What a gorgeous color palette it was!

From the design team, "for this shoot we worked with two models, which were styled in different ways but as a result looked equally gorgeous."

One was more of a Cinderella style while the other had more of a vintage inspired feel.
