The Great Gatsby was one of my favorite books in high school. I loved the glitz and glamour of the Roaring 20s. It was a time of rapid change, artistic innovation, and high-society parties. The economy was doing great and popular culture boomed. The prosperous years allowed Americans plenty of play time and allowed literature, film, and music to document this era.
This beautiful Gatsby inspired wedding shoot was designed by Gloria from Grand Engagements, the gorgeous flower arrangements were created by Jaclyne at Heavenly Blooms , and shot by Gavin at Gavin Wade Photography. Sophisticated glamour at its best, take a look and be inspired by this shoot.
From Gloria, ”Our inspiration included the subtle shades of powder blue & butter cream yellow because the home had such a open garden setting. When it came to flowers, I envisioned a whimsical garden style with their enchanting secret garden gates. Everything had a glowing and airy feel to it yet had such a radiance about it. I wanted to make sure everything was balanced and that when you look at the pictures you felt that you could envision yourself there in the moment, enjoying lemonade, playing croquet and chasing butterflies. The styling was all about going back in a moment of time and almost reliving the past, but better. The croquet balanced the freedom that this era was all about. An additional key ingredient was the 1927 All American Packard that brought the 20’s back to life.”
From Jaclyne, “I created her bridal bouquet with a mix of snowy white and cream flowers. We used white peonies, white china mums, garden roses, ranunculas, and lisianthis, lightly accented with greenery for a soft touch. The stems were wrapped in white ruffled trim ribbon and finished with a vintage pearl brooch.”
Love the outdoor chandelier…
