Classic Style Meets Modern Elegance Inspiration Shoot

Nov 8, 2018

Location, location, location. That was the inspiration behind this gorgeous styled shoot which pulled inspiration from the historic grandeur of Separk Mansion. Built in the 1920’s, the mansion, with its impressive architecture and sprawling grounds, provided the perfect backdrop for this shoot which combined classic high-end elegance with modern day touches. Large, fluted columns and shimmering chandeliers played perfectly against the vintage pieces while modern designs and colors lent a trendy touch.

To create a historic, timeless feel, the team built the tablescape around Victorian gold-rim china then incorporated modern copper and navy accents. Deep red, white and pink lush florals were paired with lots of candlelight and greenery for a fresh look.

The food, served on vintage platters, was as impressive as the table display and reflected modern flavors and on-trend seasonal selections that would wow guests. Classical musicians elevated the experience, serving as the perfect accompaniment to the couple’s traditional first dance.

The bride was the portrait of bridal elegance in her gown that featured classic lace detailing with a sweeping asymmetrical design. Art deco jewelry paired with a soft chignon and deep red lips tied her look together. Her groom complemented her in a classic tuxedo modernized with its deep navy color and trendy brown dress shoes.

The cutest addition to the shoot? Crosby, the King Charles Spaniel, an adorable yet regal addition to the day who completely stole the show!
