An opulent and romantic wedding look inspired by old-world Europe? Yes please! Isabel Lawrence Photographers put together this inspiration shoot with a team of other talented wedding professionals at Palm Spring’s beautiful Korakia Pensione, and we love the layering of prints, textures, and colors that this lush wedding table scape includes. The antique place setting rentals from Southern California’s Small Masterpiece add an incredible extra touch that you just can get from modern silverware and china!

Here’s a description straight from Isabel of Isabel Lawrence Photographers, and don’t miss the full photo shoot team listed below: We wanted to inspire the modern bride with the feel of Old World Europe. Cut crystal and lushly dripping flowers and seedpods adorn the tables. Each place is set with antique dishes, stemware and utensils; much like a European bride might do after raiding her very stylish grandmothers butlers pantry. We also want to encourage the use of favorite books or objects collected from traveling abroad in the table scape. This uniquely personal touch is sure to delight guests. The linens were chosen to be reminiscent of a ball gown worn to an opera at La Scala and instead of a traditional wedding cake, we thought it would be fun to serve individual meringues.

  6. What is she holding at then end? Is it some dessert? It’s beautiful!

  7. Regarding Elegant Wedding Invitations’ question about what the bride is holding in the photo – it’s one of the individual meringues.
