Even in today’s bustling modern world, there’s still a place for vintage wedding inspiration. At the eclectic Blanc located in Denver, Colo., a bridal shoot teeming with antique touches and classic style has us swooning for the weddings of yesteryear.
And as a nod to the upcoming celebration, an invitation suite on blue antique paper is personalized with thin, elegant calligraphy.
The stylish details are what bring the bride’s story to life. Her perfume, her silver hairbrush and mirror, and a gorgeous handwritten note are beautiful keepsakes for her wedding day.
An impeccable bouquet for this bride includes white roses, stephanotis, ranunculus, orchids, silver dollar eucalyptus, and dusty miller.
The fair-haired bride dons truly timeless attire. Atop her elegant updo is a veil made from 1910 Belgian lace. She pairs it with the stylist’s grandmother’s 1940s wedding dress complete with lace and a pleated skirt.She accessorizes with white shoes and an engagement ring made with a light-blue gemstone.
Nothing is ever old. Make it new again with your own personal style. This bridal shoot gives a rebirth to the timeless wedding traditions we’ve come to enjoy over the centuries and make us look toward the future with a promising beauty.
