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.
See the rest of this amazing styled shoot after the cut!
Table Scape + Colors: I wanted to incorporate rustic and modern details throughout. The rustic details were mainly achieved with the metals birdcages and reclaimed wood boxes and pedestals. The main colors were Coral, Cantaloupe (peach), Fuchsia, Mango (yellow/orange), and Mint.
To achieve a distressed rustic look, I opted to have a bare wood table and chairs and only accented with straw charger plates and the colorful china and bamboo flatware. The napkin was a natural tweed poly linen.
The centerpieces were designed around white hydrangeas, coral charm peonies, pink and cream garden roses and stock, pink dahlias, orange and fuchsia ranunculus, yellow pincushions, succulents, and palm leaves.
The Ceremony was designed in a more modern style using a bamboo pipe + drape structure accented by corner florals and hanging votive bubbles. The aisle was adorned with wood boxes + pedestals, birdcages, florals, succulent, and candle details.
Photography: The photographer captured the shoot beautifully using natural light, delicate poses, and vintage filters using both film and digital cameras.
Stationary: A coral and mint color palette was used to create a modern invitation with pineapple details. Various fonts were used to create mixture of vintage and contemporary styles using various sizes and alignments.
Attire + Hair + Make Up: Professional models participated in this shoot and were styled with vintage pinup girl style in mind. The attire was very clean and sophisticated with Designs by Justin Alexander (Style #8465 + #8627). Selections had lace details. I wanted the make up to look very fresh and simple with a bold lip and nude eyes.
The Groom wore a classic white tux with bow tie and a traditional Cuban guayabera and khaki pants with fedora hat. Both were styled with vintage jewelry and hair pieces.
Mojito + Sweets Bar + Cigar Lounge: There were a variety of Cuban sweets and mojitos accented with vintage Cuban cigar boxes, dominoes, and lounge furniture.
