classic + modern

 
 

From time to time we have the opportunity to showcase a gown in a styled shoot. For those who are wondering "What's a styled shoot?", let us give you a little background. As a local shop we love to collaborate with other local businesses and creatives. A styled shoot is a way for us to get to work with different photographers, florists, and decorators - as well as showcase a particular gown or style that we think our brides might love. 

This particular shoot took place out at University of Mary. This venue gave us a unique opportunity to pull our inspiration from their architecture. With the nod to a traditional church wedding combined with all the interesting lines and dimensions found on campus we knew we wanted to showcase a clean, timeless look.

Traditional meets urban...

We love the mix of such a clean classic look with a little bit of a modern edge. The open back on the Sottero & Midgley gown we used and sleek hair really help modernize the bridal look along with the all-greenery bouquet.

We wanted to emulate that classic meets modern look in the menswear from Black Tie Optional. A white jacket always has a super formal and traditional look to it, but we paired it with slim black pants and a printed bowtie and pocket square to keep things all black & white but have a little dimension. 

With so many boho-inspired casual trends (which don't get me wrong - we still obsess over those trends) it was nice to show that you can go in the complete opposite direction. Styled shoots always leave us feeling inspired!
