Styled Shoot: Old Havana by Posh Peony Event Design

Do you wish you were in a tropical paradise right now? This breathtaking and epic styled shoot brought to us by Cristina from Posh Peony Event Design is the next best thing. Salud!

This shoot was designed around 1950’s Old Havan Cuban to capture the era that was full of rustic folkloric and picturesque details. I wanted to have details that were very genuine to the Cuban culture that is very colorful and distressed at the same time. My inspiration came mostly from travel magazines and popular modern + vintage Cuban art.

Styled Shoot: Stop and Smell the Roses

This delightful styled shoot is a treasure of whimsical details. The color story alone is enough to make me happy! Here is what master stylist Regina from Jake Duke Studio has to say:

After what seems as thousands of hours of planning and making sure every detail is picture perfect, when the big day finally comes, it seems to be over with a blink of an eye. This shoot was inspired by the idea to remind the bride & groom to take time to stop and take it all in.

Styled Shoot: Dueling Whimsy by One Fine Day Events

Check out this beautiful styled shoot by One Fine Day Events! A little about the inspiration behind this shoot:

We wanted to create a few different versions of a table design for the mountain-inspired bride looking for a creative approach for her high country wedding. We designed fresh looks to appeal to her “Woodland Chic” side or inspire her “Mountain Sleek” side. We created (3) sets and showcase two whimsical interpretations of each set. Each set has one overall theme – Moody Blues, Snow Drift, and Green Envy – but the styling is re-designed to create two dueling looks. The Woodland Chic interpretations incorporate rustic, homey, and playful touches, while the Mountain Sleek designs speak of a modern, tailored yet unexpected influence. One of our main goals was to illustrate how a few simple changes to detail can completely evolve the vibe of a table or design.

We wanted to create a table inspiration where the rugged elements of nature meshed seamlessly with more refined pieces to create a blend of contrasts. Barbed wire was wrapped around large glass jars and filled with ivory candles to provide light for bouquets of soft garden roses mixed with pea pods and dried cotton.

A Garden Elopement Styled Shoot (1)

Happy Friday! Caitlin of Caitlin Gerres Photography sent over this sweet garden elopement-themed styled shoot — so simple and romantic! She says:

I teamed up with Tianna of Truly Ty Photography to plan this Garden Elopement Stylized Shoot. We wanted to tell the story of a beautiful young couple whose relationship started with two cups of tea at a café in Yorktown, VA. Savannah and Erik knew they wanted to pledge their lives to each other and they knew a bed and breakfast in Yorktown would be the perfect place to do it. Simple. Intimate. Perfect.

Styled Shoot: Formal & Regal at Carnegie Library by Blue Dahlia Events (34)

I’m loving this beautiful inspiration shoot by Blue Dahlia Events: beautiful dark woods combined with regal golds and reds — so pretty!

For this inspiration to reality shoot we wanted to capture the regal tone of a formal affair and honor the coziness of fall and winter with a warm palette of burgundy and raspberry, with accents of gold and ivory. From the florals to the gown and the accessories, each element was chosen for its elegant and stately aesthetic. The more than 100 year old Carnegie Library made the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening. Touches of old England and vintage style were inspiration for the final look.
