Ivory + Lace : Vintage Wedding Inspiration Shoot

jane-austen-vintage-wedding-inspiration-lace-1.jpg

Oregon is affectionately known for such dreary winter weather that can leave even the most creative person feeling a little uninspired. I took the rain as a challenge and used it to push myself to design something beautiful despite the weather.

Jane Austen, British Literature and 18th century England have never ceased to inspire me, and I wanted to pay an homage to that lifelong love and create a shoot that reflected the beauty and simplicity of that lovely, bygone era.

I styled the scene with delicacy in mind. Stunning vintage rentals from Something Borrowed, a captivating floral bouquet and silk table runner from Pistils & Stamen, and gorgeous calligraphy by Rachel Jacobson added the perfect touches of elegance to our minimalistic studio. I was drawn to the thought of a bride waking up and getting ready on the morning of her wedding and spending a few, precious moments alone. Quiet moments are hard to be found on your wedding day, so I really encourage brides to find a moment of rest alone (even if it's just ten minutes) to read a few pages of good book, write a love letter and enjoy a spritzer. 

I was fortunate enough to partner with a team of incredibly talented vendors and am so thrilled to share these images with you now.
