Phantom of the Opera Style Shoot

Thanks to all of the wonderful vendors who were a part of this amazing style shoot! Ask for the Moon Events put together this Phantom of the Opera style shoot at the Van Dusen Mansion was inspired by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s marvelous musical. All of the vendors involved in the shoot are huge fans of the show, but in this style shoot—the Phantom gets the girl! For couples planning a themed wedding, they should make sure the theme has many details that can be incorporated into different aspects of the wedding. Whether the concept is a distinct color, a vintage feel, fairy tale flare, or has the facets of the royal wedding—the couple should feel passionate about that particular idea. They should also make sure they stick to the theme. Sometimes couples can get excited about too many characteristics of different themes, and end up losing their vision and focus. Even when you want to ‘wow’ your guests with a remarkable event, remember that less is always more. Make sure that the theme doesn’t overshadow the most important aspect of the entire day—your wedding. Red roses, sheet music, masks, and guest favor boxes were all inspired by the Phantom of the Opera theme in this styled shoot.
