In the heart of Bohemia, now the Czech Republic, we find old world romance on the Charles Bridge. The Charles Bridge is an iconic symbol that has stood the test of time, a gateway taking us to another time and place. The bridge is a stone Gothic bridge that connects the Old Town and Lesser Town. Its construction was commissioned by Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV and began in 1357. The 30 statues lining the bridge are ominous, mystical, gilded. It is this mystical mood that the collaborators wanted to capture in this styled shoot.
The bride’s stunning Kelly Faetanini gown with gilded accents and gold leaf tiara by Eden Luxe Bridal are the perfect starting point. Black paper goods with gilded ink echo the ominous statues while the blush, plum, and rich wine hues of the florals, cake, and the tablescape are deeply romantic. Our bride and groom are at the center of this mystical romance – and, their tender embraces reveal a deep and abiding love…a tale as old as time and as timeless as the Charles Bridge.
