Noir et Blush: Santosha’s Boudoir-Inspired Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

What a special week this is… today is the second day in a row that I’ve gotten to share weddings from our fabulous PW community!  (Interested in having your wedding featured?  Find out more here…) Micaela – aka Santosha– is a Project Wedding hostess that is constantly inspiring… she met her beloved, Marc, thru a mutual friend a year before they started dating.  At the time, they were living an ocean away (she, in Edmonton, he, in London), until a romantic train getaway and a stolen kiss started it all… After six years together Micaela and Marc married in Edmonton, finding inspiration for their wedding in boudoir and avant-garde styling; the décor featured black lace, feathers, skeleton keys, and rococo patterns. Micaela dreamed of an edgy, modern wedding that made a statement.

Micaela scoured the web searching for inspiration, which she found easily in things like luxurious satin corsets, burlesque costumes, and film noir still shots.  The hard part was finding resources to bring her unique vision to life.  Thus, she went all-out DIYing everything from the bouquets to the centerpieces to the cake topper.  JAG Photography captured their wow wedding style in this striking set of sexy photos!

Back to that romantic train ride… After they met through a mutual friend, Micaela and Marc shared back and forth emails, random phone calls, and witty banter online until Marc asked Micaela to accompany him on a train ride through the Canadian Rockies. Their connection was sparked against the surreal and breathtaking backdrop.  Eventually Marc moved from his home in East London to Edmonton to be with Micaela!

The reception was completely unique, unlike any I’ve ever seen.  The Art Gallery of Alberta was adorned with bold striped tablecloths, candles, angels, and black, white and blush everything.  Although Micaela spent hundreds of hours designing the celebration, the Day-of Coordination by Sofia Morgadinho of Awespiring Weddings was crucial.

Pink sweets by Crave topped off the event….  A special thanks to Micaela for being such a fabulous, dedicated hostess and to both Micaela and Marc for sharing their incredible photos with us!
