The modern romantic elements and sleek luxurious design of the Sofitel Hotel coordinated perfectly with the design elements of this Romantic French Elegance Hotel Inspiration Shoot.   The Four-Diamond luxury Sofitel Hotel located between Philadelphia’s French Quarter and prestigious Rittenhouse Square was the backdrop.

From Photographer Sheronda Seawright

“Since weddings at this beautiful hotel are made with French elegance it was important for our shoot to capture the elegance of our couple along with some French details sprinkled in.  Inspiration came from the colors of hotel room as well as the French decor throughout the hotel.  For this shoot, we wanted to connect our modern bride and groom to the artwork and edgy contemporary furnishings blended with the warm colors in the room. Our stunning bridal bouquet is a beautiful blend of ivory, blush pink and peach flowers coupled with the warm color of magnolia leaves. Our bridal invitation stationary also incorporates the soft blush pink in our bridal bouquet and is enhanced with elegant gold font and a gold shimmer embellishment. Our bride’s hair is styled with a lovely French twist showcasing her stunning earrings coupled with her shimmering wrist cuff. We wanted both her looks to be glamorous, from her elegant bridal ballgown to her stunning reception dress coupled with her dramatic red lipstick.

Table design details from Lisa DeLuca

“Using high and low floral pieces is pleasing on the eye – circles and laterals are very appealing in a ballroom setting and combining the different styles creates a delicate balance of details. Different metals and metallic items (bronze, mercury glass silvers, silver matte chairs) are really my personal favorites. The Magnolia Leaves used in the center pieces bring a richness that ties all the colors together beautifully. I love how the rust textured side coupled with the dark natural color of the leaves.”
