“Come with me, and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination,” Gene Wilder sang in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I grew up with this film, and in years past, I would unwrap each chocolate bar with the secret hope that it would hold the golden ticket to the whimsical factory where imagination rules and chocolate rivers are not just a thing of dreams. I never found my golden ticket, but luckily, Siegel Thurston Photography‘s Willy Wonka styled wedding proves that the magic of Willy Wonka can be experienced by all – no golden ticket required! From Wonka Bars to everlasting gobstoppers and fizzy lifting drinks, no details are spared in bringing Willy Wonka’s candy utopia to life. There are so many great ideas in this shoot that would be perfect not only for weddings, but also for birthday parties and other events. I hope you have a sweet tooth (I know I sure do!), because you’re in for a whole lot of sugar and fabulous inspiration!
Nothing says Willy Wonka like candy, candy, candy! We love the bright, colorful gumdrop centerpieces and the candy reception table that add even more whimsy to scene. Candy reception tables are such a fun trend, whether they are in a Willy Wonka event or otherwise, and the display above by Love Candy Tables is simply perfection.Siegel Thurston Photography Hair Stylist: Hair Ya Go Event Designer: Urban Style the wedding network Floral Designer: Studio B Floral Cake Designer: Hey there, Cupcake!
