Vintage Prep Inspiration Shoot

One of the best parts of my job is the occasional inspiration shoot.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to get together with other creatives and dream up a beautiful wedding and then capture it all on film?!


We decided to go for a preppy vintage look and used a lot of plaids, stripes, and florals to create dreamy feel. We used a cheery color palette of buttery yellow, crisp white, kelly green, and navy.  The colors tied together all the details and made the lush blooms, striped linens, plaid dinner menus, and delicate floral design of the vintage china work together beautifully.

With such a lovely bride and dashing groom, we couldn’t help but play a bit of dress up!  Our groom couldn’t have looked more the part, from pinstriped vests and patterned ties, to navy suits and paisley bow-ties. Our bride was the picture of innocence with her long hair billowing in soft curls around her face, and a lovely Jenny Yoo gown (the Georgeanne) to pull it all together.

We then punched things up with dramatic makeup and a gorgeous bun which complimented the Francesca Miranda gown (the Paige, provided by Dimitras Bridal).  Our personal favorite though, is the last look which can only be described as sultry.  That’s right, sultry!  With side swept locks, strands of delicate pearls, and a fitted gown by Ines Di Santo (the Amour, provided by Dimitras Bridal), you couldn’t help but be mesmerized.

The day was filled with delicate details and romantic moments.  Stolen kisses on a wooden swing, playful banter over afternoon tea, and little touches of texture and pattern sprinkled in to add that bit of prep and cheer.  A rack of beautiful dresses, tasty treats, and a gorgeous couple definitely add up to one amazing inspiration shoot!
