Marie Antoinette and the Macaron

I was blown away by this amazing pre-wedding photoshoot by Judy Pak Photography, where they create a “Modern Marie” full of whimsical glamour, and you can’t have Marie without macarons and this amazing dessert buffet!


From Judy of Judy Pak Photography… If there is any day that a girl should be free to live out her every decadent whim, it is on her wedding day. We New York City vendors endeavored to capture the playful, opulent, ultra-feminine spirit of Sofia Coppola’s film “Marie Antoinette” with an inspired wedding shoot for the modern bride. Sofia Coppola’s film so skillfully took a character who we all thought we knew as a detached aristocrat and portrayed her in a more relatable (though equally lavish) light.”

On an historical note, although Coppola’s film has Marie Antoinette enjoying macarons throughout the movie, the French Monarch never actually tried a macaron. These delicacies born in Ladurée, weren’t around until 1862; Marie, died in 1793.
