Mismatched with Style – A Vintage Wedding Photoshoot

Photobucket

It is not too often that I receive a submission with a staged photoshoot, and less often that I will accept them. However this particular one is so incredibly stunning, there wasn’t a chance I was going to deprive all our fabulous readers!

This vintage but ‘not your Grandma’s wedding’ style shoot was submitted by Christy Whitehead Photography. I’ll let them explain, “This was a stylized shoot that we did at an old sawmill. We had tails for the groom and a lacy dress for the bride. Handmade cameos are featured on the cake. We even had an actual family marriage certificate displayed in a frame on the sign in table. We loved the idea of mismatched place settings and the feel of you pulled this stuff out of your grandmother’s trunk. [It is] very much a possible do it yourself project on a budget.”

If you can swing it, a vintage car for either the happy couples departure, or even just for photos, is by far one of the best props in a vintage wedding. I am not at all biased by the fact that I adore classic cars… and yes, that was a Cinderella carriage you saw!

I am completely in agreement with the photographers – the mismatched place settings look incredible. The slight variation in tablecloths, dishes and even the napkins, come together perfectly. The pearl beading added to the tables is a great idea, pearls portray the vintage theme exceptionally well.

I’m hard pressed to decide, but I think my favorite part of this shoot might have to be the cake. The cameos are just too lovely not to mention.

Speaking of mentioning, I have to give a shout out to all the vendors who were involved in this photoshoot!

  1. Thank you for featuring my photos!

    We did two concepts for this location at the Glen Venue in Glen St. Mary, Fl. The model, Adair Currie, did a more princessy look with the long hair and then when she went with the updo, her hair stylist is Kasey Sisung Blake with Blonde Glam Hair.

    Some of the tables have decals on them, those are by Ten23 Designs – Custom Decals/Lauren Sarnoff Atwaters.

    Tanya Hendricks, with Southern Charm Events styled the vintage shoot, she did a fantastic job!

    We are just blushing with all your raves, thank you!
