As many of you saw, this shoot was recently featured on GreenWeddingShoes blog! We were so honored and excited to be featured. However, with any great shoot and being published, not all the images make the final cut. A few weeks ago I shared a behind-the-scenes look into this shot, this week I will be sharing two more posts about the blog, with more lovely images and more information from each of our vendors about how we put this together.... Enjoy!
When the team originally met, we were thinking of going with a 30's inspired route for the shoot. Tamra was blown away by the trailer for the new movie Oz and how it was 20's/30's inspired, so she presented the idea of using Oz as inspiration and luckily everyone was on board. Together, we pictured a shoot that was rich with glamour, but also had an organic feel with the flowers and decor to create living art. The goal was to create an illuminated experience, event - so we mixed shiny/ metallic golds with an abundance of greenery to bring each detail to life.
Styling the clothing for the models was so much fun! As the accessories designer for the shoot, I had a lot of the head pieces and belts imagined and available to pull from her collection, many of them new pieces from her 2013 line which already has a 30's flair to it. I consulted with a good friend of mine, Rebecca, of Schone Design who makes modern wedding dresses with vintage inspiration. We choose a lace beaded number that was detailed without being over the top, along with a blush silk charmeuse gow that had a glorious low back - a true vintage staple. The last look was a flirty short number with a high lace neckline and luxorious silk velvet coat.
For the male model, I knew we needed a top hat, no Oz theme shoot would be complete without one! The suit was a combo of pieces, tying in a classic grey suit jacket and skinny black tie, with a herringbone designed pant to give it that off beat vintage feel.
