I LOVE to create new designs for styled shoots and to contribute with new teams of creative vendors,
On this occasion, we explores textures and hues of deep purples, inspired by the design principles and color palettes chosen for the shoot. The result of our design was dramatic and with so much dimension!

From Alex, the planning master mind behind this styled shoot, BridalGush,
"The first time I laid eyes on The Estate at Sunset Farm it had my mind racing with ideas of grandeur. Drawing upon inspiration from Old Hollywood Glamour, I set off to design an event that elicited feelings of a sophisticated 1950s dinner party. Rich hues of plum and hunter green accented by delicate touches of gold provide a lavish feel. A bouquet filled with lush florals dripping with colors of maroon, plum, and violet pops against the Bride’s ivory off the shoulder fitted trumpet dress. The addition of emerald and gold accessories combined with a faux fur stole and silk opera gloves provides the finishing touches to this glamorous bridal look. The towering purple and gold wedding cake is a true show stopper with its mixture of marbling texture and delicate flowers. Beautiful vintage furnishings and truly gush-worthy hand torn paper goods complete the look for an overall wedding inspiration shoot oozing with touches of refined beauty. Scroll down to see more from this shoot and check out the amazing group of vendors that worked with me to create this look."
