Old Hollywood Glam Wedding Inspiration

Design Inspiration

Photos by:

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.

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Instructions:

1. Roll out the wallpaper and cut out 33 – 6 ½” by 1 ¾” strips of wallpaper for your 6 ½” small hoop, 11 strips for each row.
2. If using a larger hoop you would just need to cut more until you have enough to fit around the top. You can make your strips thinner of thicker depending on the look you want, just add more or less strips.
3. Lay your 11 strips out under the hoop and then glue the top of each strip to hang onto the embroidery hoop. Next glue the rest of the 22 strips together to form tear drops.
4. Once they are all glued into a tear drop shape, glue two on each end of the connected loops all the way around.
5. Take out your torn fabric and loop it through the bottom layer. Once you have looped all the way around, pull the fabric tight and tie to hold the chandelier together.
6. You can then glue each bottom corner together until the chandelier holds a firm shape.
7. Now for the cording—Cut three equal lengths of cord. Roughly 14” – 20” depending on the size of your chandelier and one very long piece, 2 – 3 yards long .Tie each one to equal sides of the hoop. Hold your chandelier up by the cords, moving them around until you are centered, then quickly tie a firm knot in the center. Take your glue gun out plus left over ripped fabric and glue fabric around the knot so it will hold firm.
8. Look at your pretty chandelier! You can experiment with different sized strips to get a different look for you chandelier. All you have to remember is too add equal amounts of strips to each layer.
