Landscaped like The Butchart Gardens. This alone would be stunningly overwhelming and I might start crying and rolling around in beds of pansies or something. I love doing nature shots and it's one of my favorite parts of my job. (Sometimes I like to pretend I'm working for National Geographic.)
Located in a climate with constant bright blue skies and gorgeous puffy clouds (for my time-lapse shots).
No cars allowed to park in front.
Lavish, intricate architecture. Cathedral-esque, if you will.
The Bride's Room
Pretty large rectangle shape, with one short end of the room being made up entirely of windows.
Walls hung with black velvet. Sounds weird, but people pop and look really beautiful in front of a saturated black background. Maybe one wall would be a pretty sky blue (I like colors that contrast with skin).
A fabulous place to hang the dress, with a pretty hook, in front of maybe stained glass or a tapestry or something.
Not too many mirrors, as this makes it hard to stay out of your own and the photog's shots. But it would have one huge gilded mirror for that classic "bride-checking-herself-out" shot. Or more commonly, the "flower-girl-checking-herself-out" shot.
Plenty of nice furniture upon which to set accessories for close-ups. A red velvet fainting couch would be cool too.
This post ended up being longer than I anticipated, so I'll post the second half tomorrow!
