Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Inspiration

Design Inspiration

It’s no secret that we’re total suckers for Old Hollywood Glamour style. Mel and Steve of She-n-He Photography photographed and created the paper goods for this amazing styled shoot with the help of Zinnia and Company, Three Apples Events, and vintage chinaware from Antiquaria, this shoot is all about simple details for a maximum impact. The rich color palette has us daydreaming of a black-tie affair this afternoon!

From Melanie of She-n-He Photography and Design: We collaborated with Zinnia and Company on this luxurious black, cream, and gold shoot to inspire couples with upcoming winter weddings, but certainly the classic look can translate to anyone putting together a fabulous party to entertain!

And we found the perfect outfit for our party hostess: a stunning oh-so-couture gown covered in gold sequins. And a beautiful pair of red Lanvin heels to go with it (the only pop of red!). From the tablescape to the invitations to the cake table, everything was designed to fit into the theme; to play on black, cream, and gold; and to really evoke a feeling of romantic extravagance. Antiquaria provided the china for the table – sets of cream plates with gold rims, gold-accented tumblers, and beautiful gold-rimmed wine glasses. Gold candlesticks dotted down the tables, but instead of holding candles, we thought cream roses would look stunning filling the various heights by each setting. The main table arrangement was an enormous piece Zinnia and Company created with gold-painted magnolia leaves (which were also tucked into each napkin behind the silver-ware!) and clusters of cream roses in a beautiful black urn.

Inspired by Frank Sinatra’s “Put Your Dreams Away,” we chose The Vista on Seward Hill and wanted start to finish to be exquisite – everything in black, cream and gold, the epitome of a classic, lush dinner reception.

    Thanks so much! We had SO much fun putting this together :) The candlesticks were actually collected at various thrift stores if you can believe it – such a great find! Thanks to Ruffled for featuring the shoot!

    Yes we hit several thrift stores in the area, and for some reason there was an abundance of these candlestick in various sizes. I love them because at the end I got to keep them and I decorated my Thanksgiving table the cream rosebuds propped up in them again.
    Loved them. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

I’ve been wanting to do black as one of my colors, and seeing how well it goes with gold and cream-I’m set!!! Thank you!!! You guys are amazing. I wish I had a fraction of the creativity you guys possess!!!
