Photography by We Are Seekers
Here in Rebellious Brides, we don't like taking things too seriously. In fact, one of our dream concepts even before we started this blog was to do a tribute on the movie Temptation Island. My matron-of-honor, Anna (the super beautiful girl in white) actually hosted a bridal shower photo shoot for me before I got married--and I think it's a wonderful idea to have a photo shoot like this with your girls in replace of the kinky bridal showers.
This shoot is also a tribute to two of the concepts we introduced in the blog 2 years ago--the "anti-white" (colored gowns) and "white w/ a twist" (self explanatory). Two concepts that were perfectly interpreted for this Temptation Island setting and which, fabulous designer Vidal Clayton of the Cecilio Abad Design Team graciously indulged us with. Each gown used for this shoot was re-constructed just for this shoot, and the gold gown was made from scratch. Clayton never ceases to surprise us! And I hope this encourages all you rebels to consider having a rebellious wedding gown!
And finally I want to talk a little bit more about the venue for the shoot which I think is also perfect for the modernized version of Temptation Island that we were going for. The venue is Sulo Hotel--which, just like the old movie is like a Throwback Thursday of some sorts because it was actually historically circa 1967 'till it was revamped into this ahhhmazing hotel that looks sooo hip and fabulous and can easily be one of those unique wedding venues that only the people in the know would well...know!
Enjoy the feature. "Everybody needs a shipwreck once in awhile." *wink*
