There’s much to be said for the classics: the stunning beatitudes of a blooming bouquet, the captivating romance of delicate lace… they are enough to stir a sea of lovesome emotion! It’s no wonder these exquisite parts seem to know nothing of time, and ferry their graceful presence through age after age of bridal beauty. They bear the timelessness and eternal romance of a thousand love stories before them, and suddenly a single look can carry with it the infinite possibility of love itself!
A word from stylist, Debbie Hemingway:
“Set against our crisp white studio walls with beautiful natural window lighting, our shoot was created to inspire real brides with ideas for a romantic european inspired wedding. When curating a shoot, I start with amazing gowns & a beautiful color palette. The gorgeous gowns from Magnolia White Salon set the tone for the romantic classic styling here. I’ve been a collector of antiques & vintage styling pieces & our studio was the perfect place to bring it all together for this shoot. The vintage ring from Trumpet and Horn paired beautifully with an 1890’s French Ormolu ring box that I sourced in the south of France. The handmade papers from Farmette Press were beautifully crafted with the artistic talents of Bijou Creative Calligraphy!
A simple textured white cake from A Cake Life was accented with gold vines & dried tea roses from my garden. Designer Maggie Wu sent over some of her beautiful hair pins that I fell in love with! An elegant table top floral adorned the lovely silk textiles & linen napkins from Silk and Willow & our Vintage etched blush French stemware.”
