My Work: A Styled Shoot {Full Recap}

Jocelyn from Ready or Knot {Wedding Chic} asked me to style a photoshoot her intern, Kassy, was putting together to showcase Rockbrook Village businesses. I was eager to help, so Kassy and I rounded up food, flowers and decor from a number of neighboring stores. I never realized how many great businesses were located in Rockbrook! After some initial brainstorming with Jocelyn, I came up with the following concept:
Our photoshoot was centered around a sophisticated neutral palette. I wanted to tell the story of how a couple’s personal style can be incorporated into a wedding, so that the couple’s personality is the focal point of the event rather than over-the-top details and decor. The first scene was staged as the bride’s closet. I wanted the closet to reflect the bride’s personal style, so I mixed vintage furniture and accessories that she could have inherited from her mother and grandmother with modern perfume bottles, makeup and jewelry that she purchased herself. The bride’s closet is literally a treasure trove of accessories from past and present, and she expertly adorns her neutral and simplistic bridal gown with dramatic layers of gilded jewelry from her collection. She loves accessorizing on a day-to-day basis, but her wedding gives her the opportunity to create a more luxurious look. For the reception decor, I styled the space with the same mindset as the bride’s closet. The space is simple and elegant, and like the bride’s style, the food and decor are designed in neutral colors with gold accents and details. The groom’s refined style is incorporated into the design with the clean lines of the cake and the classic details like the vintage champagne and crystal chandelier.
I was really lucky to be able to work with some amazing vendors. Daniel from The Mullers took all of the beautiful pictures. The Mullers are a husband and wife photography team that capture couples’ love stories in a fresh and stylish way. I’ve been a fan of their work for a long time. I envisioned each model’s personal style very early on in the planning process, but I couldn’t have achieved the exact look I wanted without Natalie from Sequined Silver Lining. Natalie is great to work with and her own style is a breath of fresh air. Natalie will work with you whether you need help styling your day-to-day look, packing for a trip or putting together your perfect bridal style. Jocelyn provided the bride and bridesmaid gowns. I felt like I was shopping for my bridal gown all over again when we were selecting the models’ attire. Ready or Knot is like a girl’s wonderland. Lastly, I have to mention Jessica from Nostalgia Rentals who provided a lot of the vintage furniture and props for the shoot. I borrowed the vanity, cake plates, serving dishes and many of the vanity accessories from the rental company. Nostalgia Rentals is a lifesaver to an event stylist (they have everything!). Many thanks to the wonderful vendors (and friends) we worked with!
