It's inspired by old photos of family weddings - faded, hand-painted, worn, yet still elegant. The pieces have a natural, carefree, casual vintage feel. My palette includes dusty pastels, white, ivory and champagne as well as a fabulous deep blue that I just couldn't turn away from. For materials I chose vintage jewelry findings, soft feather pads and big full bloom flowers, coordinating birdcage veils for brides AND their bridesmaids, and petite bridal cocktail hats for something a little different.
I can't wait for the upcoming photo shoot with Rosemary Photography. Rose is an amazingly talented wedding photographer from Seattle who also crafts amazing vintage portraits. She is a dear friend and I'm over the moon, just absolutely thrilled, to be working with her on this! I know she'll make these pieces come to life!
