Ready for some gorgeous wedding inspiration eye candy inspired by Coco Chanel? She was the epitome of style and luxury, yet also inspired a whole new fashion paradigm for women during her lifetime—she exuded classic elegance. With her in mind, we set out to do a styled shoot that would evoke these elements in a beautifully modern way:
“A black and blush wedding color palette make for a modern, romantic, yet timeless celebration of love!”
—Amrit Dhillon-Bains, Anaïs Event Planning & Design
