Where, oh where, do we even begin on how much we love this inspiration shoot by Cassidy Brooke and A Vintage Affair Events. Perfectly styled, this editorial showcases how color can be bold yet soft, modern yet romantic. How a perfectly suited man can truly change your world. How the perfect couple, beautiful, passionate and in love, can fill you with joy and envy. This shoot is true perfection and we are utterly in love!
From designer Jessica Hearing of A Vintage Affair Events: So many beautiful bridal inspiration shoots are built around the bride of course, which we love. But so many men out there are just as stylish and bespoke as the lovely ladies in their lives, so we wanted to highlight a couple who both love fashion and style, and who wanted to see that reflected throughout the aesthetics of their wedding day. Photographer Cassidy Brooke was looking to highlight color with a stylish green groom’s suit, which was where our design ideas began to take shape. We wanted a organic, modern look to the shoot and a warm and textural fall feel that we thought would not only inspire stylish couples but feel relatable and attainable. Adding in tones and shades of marsala and deep fuchsia gave us just the palette we were wanting--fresh and fallish, yet sophisticated.
We outfitted our real couple in a stylish emerald green suit by ASOS and a stunning halter gown by Willowby paired with a flowy skirt from WToo and stunning ring by Susie Saltzman. It’s a tossup whose updo we loved more--his stylish manbun or her beautiful braided look by KIS Hair and Makeup Design! We outfitted their bridesmaid in a gorgeous deep fuchsia halter gown by BHLDN. We kept flowers organic, romantic and textural and we LOVE how the color palette married with the incredible fall colors of the landscape.
The Manor House recently added a new ballroom and we felt like it perfectly married the modern yet still organic feel we were going for. The table set in front of the fireplace was a stylish focal point for the shoot. Velvet is a favorite for fall weddings and we loved the unusual shade of this Rose Velvet Linen from La Tavola--a neutral but with more depth. We set the table with modern gold candelabra and stylish brass votives, which were a lovely tie-in to the gold rimmed plate and flatware from Crate and Barrel. A concrete vessel filled with lush and textural dahlia, garden roses, pieris buds, grapes, crabapples, blackberries and mint gave the table an organic yet elegant vibe. Stationery from Julie Ha Calligraphy completed the look.
