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.
