I adore how magical this Wizard of Oz Emerald City wedding ideas shoot is. There was a sparkly dreamy gown, whimsical paper flowers and twinkling lighting, which was so atmospheric!

The enchanting table set up features bright green glassware and paper poppies. Then there was the ceremony backdrop, complete with wooden doors and giant flower cut outs.

From the pretty bouquet to the intricate cake and stunning accessories. Be prepared to be blown away.

Claire Gutierrez Photography, thank you ever so much for sharing these otherworldy wedding ideas with us.

Wizard Of Oz Emerald City Wedding Ideas

Luna y Sol created colorful, paper poppies to play off of the whimsical, make believe feel that is Wizard of Oz and also created giant painted poppies to make the ceremony space stand out. The concept was to create an elegant ode to the classic without it getting kitsch.

Every moment in this shoot was inspired by some element of the Wizard of Oz from the pink sparkling gown and the groom’s alternative to a boutonnière, all the way to the location, lighting, and dessert.

They paired the florals with green, vintage depression glassware and played off of the sparkling Emerald City image with gold, antique accents and lots of clear glass elements.

The GirlieBird&Co venue in Albuquerque, New Mexico made the perfect backdrop to this look.

Not only do they have a beautifully manicured lawn that feels like a secret garden, they also have a unique, outdoor “chapel” with a gorgeous carved door and mismatched vintage and antique seating.

The couple’s attire is directly inspired by Glinda the Good Witch and The Scarecrow.

Amanda’s gown rented from Light House Studio was a literal dream that made her sparkle like a shining star. Krystina Romero created a beautiful, sparkling hair-do that paired perfectly with the gown and shoes.

Andy’s outfit was curated by me, the photographer.

His look is a little more laid back like Scarecrow’s look brought together by a stunning, hand crafted leather hat by Jessi, owner of Grey Collective Hats who donates a portion of profits to brain cancer research.

We also paid homage to Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion with Andy’s medal of valor pin and Amanda’s tin ring box. (Can you spot the Wicked Witch of the West in the decor?)

Desert Adorned provided a stunning matching jewelry set with a smooth moonstone pear with rose quartz lariat necklace and rose quartz and moonstone double ring.

Rose quartz is said to be especially powerful when its worn near the heart while opal inspires love and passion.
