Gatsby Gorgeous

Well, we don’t want to brag…but we were one of the lucky one’s that got an exclusive viewing of The Great Gatsby on Tuesday night!

The night started at the Zapwater offices with fashions straight out of the roaring 20s.  All the guests were encouraged to take inspiration from the movie and dress as their favorite Gatsby character.  We teamed up with Jilly Ink, Pistil and Vine, Private Label Linens and Re:find Joy to create a beautiful, vintage/Gatsby-esque vignette!  I love how Molly included one solo green votive – to replicate the glowing green lantern in the story.

Be U Weddings hosted the event, along music by Fig Media, photography/photobooth by Cage and Aquarium, glamorous vintage gowns by Mignonette Bridal and of course…flapper-worthy fare by Pure Kitchen Catering, and beer pairings by Goose Island Catering.  All the glitz and glamour you would expect to see and taste at a Jay Gatsby affair!

After the soiree, we headed out to the Icon Theater for an exclusive viewing of The Great Gatsby, in 3D.  A whimsical dream, that took you back in time.  You felt like you were there, and left you wanting more.

The movie officially premiers in theaters tomorrow and is sure to be the hit of the summer! So if you love glitz, glam, sequins, sparkle and fabulous parties – Gatsby is a must see!

Now go out and see it… ‘old sport’

xo-tm!
