the hunger games: capitol city citizen wedding

Today’s inspiration shoot from Green Blossom Photography is why I love styled shoots so much. They really allow all the wedding pros involved to get creative and let their imaginations soar! We’ve all see Hunger Games themed weddings with a forest setting and bow & arrow motifs, but what would a Capitol City wedding look like?

It would look like this:

From Green Blossom Photography – “This shoot was inspired by the recent release of the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Rather than focus on a wedding for Katniss & Peeta, which I’ve seen done before, we chose to focus on what a wedding might look like for a prominent capitol citizen.

Since it is believed that the Capitol is in the Rocky Mountains, our hometown of Denver was the perfect location to create our capitol wedding.

We imagined that a wedding for a capitol citizen would be colorful, opulent, slightly over the top, and fuse modern elements with Victorian and art deco lines. We chose a color palette of purples, oranges, and turquoise and brought those color influences into the food, floral design, makeup, and dresses.”

“For makeup and hair we chose an updo, feathered eyelashes, crystals, and a fabulous headpiece. We added jewelry from a local artist / photographer (look closely at the orange piece to see faces!) and paired it with two amazing dresses by designer Ian Stuart.

The model’s red hair and creamy skin were perfect for our vision of a flawless, enhanced capitol citizen and we sculpted designs into our male model’s beard. For the groom we chose a white suit without lapels and tied in our purple color with the tie.”

“We created three stations for our models to interact with.

At our drink station we used a vintage chair in a fabulous blue color, an acrylic side table and tall purple vases to compliment our martini glasses and decanter with a vibrant turquoise drink. The chair was perfect for some ‘formal’ capitol portraits.

At the table scene we incorporated fruit, nuts, vibrant flowers, and vases, and paired them with vintage china plates and modern silver silverware. We created escort cards with capitol names, included a tribute to President Snow, and made golden chocolate favors that we decorated with layered charms. We used modern chairs to contrast the wooden and metal table and created a purple and gold backdrop to add some depth to the scene.

For our dessert station we chose mini cheesecakes, fruit and crème cakes, and golden truffles. The idea was that there would be a multitude of small dessert bites that our citizens could munch on as they mingled at the wedding.

To add to the capitol theme, we also incorporated a sea themed gift from their good friend, Hunger Games winner from District 4, Finnick, and included a white rose and a note from President Snow.”

“For the second part of the shoot we traveled to a local park that featured the outline of the Rocky Mountains and had a large stone pavilion with marble columns. We used the grandiose columns to create a majestic backdrop and then photographed our couple as the sun set over the mountains.

Overall, we feel like we created a fantastic wedding for our capitol citizens that was colorful, opulent, and true to the influences of the books and movies!”
