As the weather grew colder and the leaves started to fall, we were full of ideas for winter weddings. We thought the best way to share them with you was through a styled shoot! So we started to plan, Liv and I discussed a dark color pallet, simple elegant details, and a moody romantic vibe. We took our inspiration from industrial architecture, 1930s design, and bold florals.
From here I put together a mood board and Liv started contacting vendors. We sourced antique furniture, fur, and glassware and mixed it with great new pieces like the Irene dress from Watters, beautiful tableware from Event Rental Group and a huge ruby ring from Phyee Collection. We also had pieces made specifically for the shoot and we couldn’t be more thrilled with them, Edelweiss Studio created a full suit of invitations and we had a beautiful icy cake from Cake or Death.
Our models were absolutely amazing as they smiled through a long cold day. We really wanted to create a sexy, mysterious mood, and they nailed in. Hair and Makeup was done by the very talented Norzin who created a soft glam look through a subtle smokey eye, strong liner and gentle waves. Our photographer Cass Rudolph and her assistant Natty brought our vision to life. Cass shot rich, soulful photos and used professional grade lighting equipment to create contrasts and shadows.
Over all we wanted our styled shoot to inspire you, hopefully you take something away from these photos that you can use in your own wedding. As always, if you have questions about creating a mood board, choosing vendors, or sourcing and styling we are here to bring your ideas together seamlessly and within budget.
Hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as we enjoyed creating them!
