Wedding Style Inspiration: Romantic, Floral Wedding Ideas

Posted: 09/19/2012 11:30 am

This fall, the Musee d'Orsay in Paris celebrates "Impressionism and Fashion," and we're inspired!

Our mood board channels the art movement with hand-painted place cards, mini cakes modeled after Monet's Water Lilies, and a wedding gown that evokes Degas' ballerinas. The effect? Pure genius.
