Like many wedding themes found on this blog the challenge is always transforming a unique and nontraditional theme into something classy and elegant. For couples who struggle on how to approach such a task, you will love today’s styled shoot from Live View Studios based in North Carolina. This colorful, feathery shoot proves that you can take inspiration from a popular app based game like Angry Birds, about cartoon birds and pigs at war, and transform it into an elegant wedding with a few subtle touches.
“Who has seen an Angry Birds inspired wedding? When the idea came to us,” wrote photographer Brent of Live View Studios, ”we looked and found a few groom’s cakes & details based on the game but nothing that incorporated it in as an overall wedding theme. With Angry Birds being with one of the top 10 apps & with 1 billion downloads as of May this year, we thought, why not create a wedding inspiration from the game, using elements creatively instead of basing it only on the characters? Keeping the elements of stone/brick, glass, wood, & feathers, and the primary color palette in mind, we, along with a very talented team of vendors, set out to design a rustic couture (entitled Passion Takes Flight) wedding with slingshot pens, tumbled concrete structures, a gold crown & golden eggs, a treasure chest for notes written by guests, and more.”
Dinner was followed by an Angry Bird themed wedding cake by Linacucina placed atop vintage trolley carts (similar to the ones in the game) serving as the cake stand. The bottom tier featured hand painted grass design with a the top tier embossed with a brick texture, and a nest of golden eggs topped the cake. Two additional cakes, with fondant ‘feathers’ lining the sides and accenting the tops, were perched on towers reminiscent of the game, and the table top was covered with moss and river rocks.
