This Over-the-Top Ballroom Styled Shoot Brings All of Your Opulent Wedding Fantasies to Life

If giving yourself the task of creating an “Opulent Dream” themed styled shoot, you’d best be prepared to buy your weight in blooms and sparkly crystals–and that’s just what luxury event planning and design company Dacceni Occasions did. For this photo shoot, they filled a banquet table with an enormous floral table runner, added some glitz with a gold table cloth, and hung strands of crystals across the room. All the over-the-top decor was captured by Judah Avenue Photography for this fit-for-a-queen bit of inspiration.

The shoot was “designed to combine modern and classic elements that appeal to a bride who embodies exquisite taste with a flair for style and originality,” says Dacceni Occasion’s Nnenna Didigu. The soft pinks, reflected light from the crystals, and the elegant appliques on the paper goods were combined to create “a blissful utopia.”
