1920s style abounded in Bridal Market, and we couldn't get the inspiration out of our heads. We thought of the idea for this photo shoot after seeing so many Art Deco influenced gowns. In particular, Jenny Packham gowns caught our eye, and we featured one in the shoot. This took place at the historic King's Daughters Inn in Durham, NC which was built in the 1920s. It was the perfect venue for our Art Deco inspired shoot! Our attempt was to create a vintage 1920s feel while still portraying modern design that today's brides could relate to. There is so much vintage-rustic style in weddings lately, so we thought we would take on vintage-glam instead.
The lovely couple
This turquoise velvet ribbon was delicious!
A luxe dinner table!
Calla lilies, deep pink and lavender roses, and peacock feathers gave the perfect lush yet sleek shape to the floral arrangements.
I call this pose "laugh and touch your necklace."
Mini champagne favors.
Gorgeous amusé plates by Revolution.
The dessert table.
Champagne tower, yes please!!! Dying for one of our brides to try this...
We were super nervous about this, but accomplished it beautifully. It's actually as easy as it looks.
A letterpress version of an actual sign built in the Durham in the early 1900s. Bull City!
I love the crystal details in this shot: broche on the bouquet, hair jewels, and the back of this glam dress.
The Moss Room at the King's Daughters Inn. Fun fact: that ridiculously gorgeous headboard was once part of a sign over the entrance of a fine lingerie shop in Durham. Ooh la la!
My favorite shot of the day. Seriously, Big Star Studios, breathtaking work.
Hope you enjoyed, my darlings! We will definitely be doing a styled shoot again soon. Any theme ideas?
