Film Inspired Wedding: Top Gun
Top Gun is such a classic movie. With lines that we still recognize almost 25 years later ("I feel the need, the need for speed!"), how could I not be inspired to do a wedding board? Having seen the movie a thousand times, visualizing how the wedding of Maverick and Charlie would look if we were to see it in on the big screen was not too hard. For Charlie, I drew inspiration from her classic and simple style of pencil skirts and subdued tones. For the bridesmaids, I drew from the army greens of the military and its aircraft. Of course, for Maverick, I couldn't ignore his iconic bomber jacket. It just so happens, the image I found has a model sporting a bow tie and an outfit that I think would work just wonderfully, if only it were in a more toned down color palette (ie: white or tan pants instead of yellow). For the men in the wedding, I thought it only appropriate that they have aviator cuff links. The flowers for the wedding would reflect Charlie's simple and streamline style - all white and no frou frou. So, is this how the wedding of this famous movie couple would really go? I can only speculate BUT I have heard rumors of a Top Gun sequel!
