STYLED SHOOT INSPIRATION | mixing vintage with modern for a totally “of-the-moment” look

Everyone has heard the saying “something old, something new” millions of times… and the idea of combining both vintage and modern pieces was a big part of our inspiration for the recent “Modern Day Secret Garden” styled shoot we organized. Do you love contemporary accents but also have a place in your heart for some vintage romance? You CAN HAVE BOTH! Check out some of the beautiful photos below for ideas on how to work the best of both worlds into your special day.


We paired a totally modern two-piece, hand painted gown with an antique style gold leaf head piece. Natural makeup and loose hair completes a look that’s clean and unique yet classic.

Vintage candle sticks, romantic custom designed menu cards & a character-rich, moss covered farm table pair unexpectedly yet perfectly with sleek metallic chairs and simply modern place settings.

Nothing is hotter right now than a hanging floral installation! We took this trendy idea and incorporated both vintage feeling Secret Garden style vines and greens with floral filled glass orbs for a modern twist.

...And we really cannot get over the bridal bouquet! It's the most perfect blend of classic elegance and modern, wild beauty. STUNNING!

We LOVE how couples have started including their special furry friends into their weddings! Who could have imagined 80, 90, 100 years ago that this would be a thing?! Is there anything better than styling your best four-legged friend with dreamy floral collar (to coordinate with the rest of the wedding party, of course) and capturing some special moments that you will cherish forever? We think not!
