Superhero Stylized Shoot
*In my best 1950’s radio announcer voice**
Ladies’ n gentleman, boys n girls… gather round for something totally unique on the Temecula Wedding House blog this afternoon. Today we have stylized wedding inspiration in which many super powers join forces to create something unique, something extraordinary that will not only inspire but entertain you! A Fantasy wedding with class in which Superman and Wonder Woman join forces in the ultimate union!”
The the setting for this marvelous day takes place at one of the newer Temecula Wedding Venues in wine country, Fazelli Cellars. This stylized wedding combines fantasy with class. The decorations are on point right down to the cake. ALL the vendors participating in this did a tremendous job and no doubt had a lot of fun in the creation and execution of this concept. NEVER seen anything like it before and we LOVE it.
From the Wedding Planner- Cristina:
“I planned, designed, and styled the Wonder Woman Marries Superman stylized wedding and did so because of my love for Superman and because I have been a huge fan of him since I was a child. I chose the theme because I am also fascinated with Wonder Woman and because Wonder Woman and Superman share lots of similarities. They are simply perfect for each other! All the elements of the design matched the theme in terms of colors and decor. Everything I chose for the design was associated with the Wonder Woman and Superman characters from the crystals to the lassos to the attire to the comic book relevance and to the Justice League associations.”
From the Wedding Stationary Artist- Adriana:
“Every time I do a new stylized wedding it pushes my limits and my imagination so I enjoy every second of the process. The gold details I used on the invitation cards were very unique and similar to Wonder Woman’s gold tiara which made this suite an exceptional beauty. The gold glitter doesn’t shed and it gives the invitation the extra glitz and glam. The cards were printed on pearl shimmer paper for a dazzling look. This invitation suite is inspired by beauty and romance. Gold and royal blue are the main colors of the suite and it’s perfect for the eclectic bride. I love listening to my client’s vision. My imagination is limitless. I love creating and woRking with paper and all things pretty! Every project pushes my imagination further and further which I enjoy very much. If a bride can envision a design I can make it.”
From the MUA- Jamie:
Wonder Woman’s iconic red lip, was the central focus to the entire look. That classic red, was achieved with a matte lip stick, with ultra pigmentation, to keep the lips looking fresh throughout the day. The main essence of the eyes, was to make the beautiful brown eyes pop and to work along side the classic red lip in achieving the perfect look. Warm brown were swept through the crease, with a deeper brown pin pointing deep in the crease to achieving ultimate definition. A gold shimmery eye-shadow was added to the lid, so not only do the eyes of the blushing bride pop when her eyes are open, but also when she looks down. Along the bottom lash line, all the warm tones were blended throughout to add to the sultriness of the eyes. Eyeliner was a main tool used in the completion of the eyes. Both the top and bottom lash lines, were lined, with a black waterproof liner, to withstand the day. To coincide with the warmth emerging from the eyes, bronzer was added on the high points on the face and on the highest points of the cheek bones, a shimmery highlight was added to accentuate the natural structure of the bride. To finish off the look, a warm rose blush was added. This look is perfect for any superhero but also any bride!
From the Wedding Dress Designer- Deborah:
What would a superhero wear to her wedding?
The Amazon warrior Wonder Woman has been a character empowering to women for decades. Not only an action hero fighting supervillians, she is a feminist who stands for justice and truth. I’m an environmentally conscious designer of clothing, accessories, home decorative accessories, wedding gowns and accessories so in creating her character through wardrobe, I felt that she would also care about the environment.
I chose the sustainable fabrics hemp/silk satin and modal/spandex, a piece of vintage metallic lace, and some rare and precious wild silk called muga to create her looks.
Her wedding gown is a minimalist bias cut gown with a deep v illusion neckline embellished with a simple row of iridescent bugle beads and buttons down the back. Accessorizing the gown are a take on her iconic (and indestructible) cuff bracelets in gold and rhinestone, and a gold jeweled belt at the waist. An understated but elegant wedding look with a reference to her superhero status via the accessories.
For her reception/getaway look, her understated wedding persona disappears. I designed a gold and crème themed superhero look for her transition into her role as the wife of superman using a piece of vintage gold lace in combination with the wild gold-toned muga silk to design the bustier. (Gold is the natural color of this expensive and wild silk due to the wild silkworm’s diet in the forest and is associated with the goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity.) The little uneven-hemmed mini skirt is made of modal/spandex, a fabric I use in my Green Queen basics and active line. I kept the accessories from her wedding look, the gold cuffs and belt, but added are her iconic projectile tiara and a gold lasso of truth. Edith is the most perfect Wonder Woman ever and made my part a breeze! I had great fun creating the looks for this shoot.

From the Baker- Melanie:
I chose two types of cake, a decadent chocolate cake with a smooth buttercream and a moist lemon cake with a delicious trio of berry filling. I tried to envision what 2 iconic super hero’s would dream about for their special day. A replica of Superman’s gorgeous Fortress of Solitude would only be fitting. Brides and grooms are choosing more non-traditional wedding cakes that put a twist on special day to express their personality and I encourage my couples to be creative so that I can give them a cake of no other and love the design and taste for years to come!
From the Hair Artist-Amber:
These particular styles for our Wonder Woman Bride was such an incredibly fun experience! We were asked to create two different looks. Our first style was a wild tousled look. We set the hair wrapping it around a wand curling iron and sprayed it with a heat protecting style spray before and after curling to ensure the style would last . We set the hair by pinning in place and letting it cool while the model had her makeup session started. After the hair was set , we were able to design the bouncy tousled look and finish her style by placing the iconic Wonder Woman headpiece on her and securing with pins to hold it in place. The second look was a classic French twist updo . Her hair was swept up and secured by locking in place our hair pins and strong hold hairspray to ensure it lasted through the night . To complete the look we secured a beautiful gold v-shaped hairpiece below the twist for our second Wonder Women Bridal look. We were very pleased that her hair styles lasted through the entire shoot and can see these techniques being used in many different photo shoots for engagement photos and weddings , or any special occasion! Our salon is located in south Temecula by the Temecula Wineries and we love to provide our services bothon location or in salon for any beauty needs.

From the Temecula Wedding Photographer- Raelyn:
We all love a good superhero story. Maybe it’s just because I grew up watching the Batman and Superman Adventures on Kids WB, but I’ve always been a bit of a sucker for the Man of Steel. The Wonder Woman craze has been sweeping the nation ever since the big summer blockbuster showed us all just how incredible Diana Prince really is. Of course, we had to bring Superman and Wonder Woman together for a wedding the biggest DC Comics fans would swoon over.
