Old Hollywood Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot / Austin Wedding Photographer / by Melanie Grizzel

Several months ago, I got together with two other extremely talented ladies Margaret Bedikian of Three Apples Events and Leah Proctor from Zinnia and Co. to do three completely separate style shoots. We did one in the morning at The Inn At Wild Rose Hall, the afternoon was spent doing this one at Vista on Seward Hill, and the last was done at Barr Mansion (here is a taste of that one). Each of us took our vision and ran with it. The first was a tea party and while we all brought something to the table (so to speak) the real vision came from Margaret. This one, I call it Sinatra, was mine. It was inspired by a Frank Sinatra song and I wanted to give it that dark and dreamy feel. Understated with gold, black and cream, it screams class and sophistication without having to really say it at all. We used place settings, glassware and flatware form Antiquaria's collection. LOVE it! Margaret and I went on a shopping spree to Gilda Grace for some detail touches and re-sale shops for the rest. The candle stick, turned single cream rose bud stand was my favorite. Leah spray painted magnolia leaves in gold for the rich luxurious backdrop for Anitquaria's flatware. Seamless. The golden draped chair ties add drama to Vista on Seward Hill's already dramatic look. Gilda Grace Collections' high fashion wedding collection was perfect and added that final touch to this already drama-laden experience. This is exactly how I imagined it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did putting it together! You can also find a "how to" on ruffled.com <click>
