Wonderland Fantasy Styled Shoot


Petals & Lace Visit Wonderland – A Styled Shoot

We are sharing a sneak peek at this enchanting styled shoot that will be featured in an upcoming issue- it was just too good to keep to ourselves!

A group of vendors met at Nathaniel’s Unique Events in Richmond VA and created an alternative to the generic pink and girly Alice in Wonderland. Inspired by a combination of nature and little bit of steam punk: their vision was born.

Here is a word about the shoot from the creative director and stylist Karla Crisp from Petals & Lace Events, who helped shape the shoots design as well as photographed.

“Having 3 little girls we are always watching Disney movies and princess movies. So when the new Alice in Wonderland came out it definitely caught my interest. It was nothing like the childhood version I remembered, it was edgy and dark and magical.

I had to recreate the intrigue and childlike awe the movie had captured.

The unique parts of the styled shoot were having a custom made backdrop that was created from a vision and turned into a reality. It was eye catching and different from anything I had ever seen.

I searched for different table pieces that seemed like they were from the movie. The dress was edgy and made a statement and was also custom made. The vendors all came together to create a magical Alice in Wonderland, themed wedding”.
