Dalmatian Affair: Elegant Black and White-Inspired Styled Shoot from Couture Events

We here at California Wedding Day love weddings (duh!) and four-legged friends...conbine the two in one shoot and it's safe to say we are nothing short of giddy. So when this elegant black and white styled shoot at San Diego's US Grant Hotel hit our mailbox from the Couture Events we did a happy dance. 

From the designers: 

We instantly fell in love with the idea of a 101 Dalmatians-inspired wedding shoot full of glamour and fun. Our styling team re-imagined the story of Pongo and Perdita using a gorgeous black and white palette, vintage decor, and, of course, man’s best friend. To help bring the classic Disney film to life, Couture Events collaborated with the US Grant, Sara France Photography, Rhapsody Rentals and Classic Party Rentals. Isari Flower Studio created elegant monochromatic bouquets and centerpieces — and selected red roses for the perfect pop of color. Dog-shaped cookies added hints of whimsy, while classic gowns and tuxedos reflected the film's original era.

This shoot was created for couples looking to bring a little fun to their classic black and white wedding. We hoped to show how blending unexpected details with a timeless style can create a wedding as unique as the couple themselves. We also loved the idea of turning a children's story about love and family into a refined wedding style that couples could recreate on their big day. Not to mention, this is a perfect way to incorporate furry family members into the wedding!
