From the stylists, Kirbi and Tina: When we first met with photographer Chelsea Davis, we desired to capture a style that was not only beautiful, but was personal and adaptable. We decided to infuse a bit of rustic charm meets the beauty and timelessness of black & white. All the while, evoking some nostalgia through the use of vintage inspired props and wardrobe. Chelsea captured every little detail with talent and grace and effortlessly captured each of the beautiful elements we styled. Her photography tells a true story in this perfect evening sunlight of a charming, romantic outdoor soiree met with the coziness of a rustic, vintage celebration.

Lori Alexander, owner of 7 Closets Vintage, blew us out of the water with the addition of a breathtaking collection of vintage occasion and wedding gowns. With even more romance and lace reflected through the dress selections, the loveliness was only amplified. The addition of the bride’s black sash and satin bowed heels gives the perfect touch of black to the divine ivory gown. The groom sports a perfectly placed silver?gray and black bow tie with a classic black tux.

Sara with Lulubean Designs took our inspiration for black and white vintage and created a wonderfully matched paper suite complete with silhouettes, the whimsical use of timeless fonts, the texture of kraft, and a Save the Date adorned with vintage book pages. Every little detail from the styled event coordinates perfectly with her paper designs.

We couldn’t have asked for more from the dessert goddesses at two bakeries, Cinderella Stories and Frosted Bakery, for their edible perfections. Drizzled in white chocolate, sprinkled with romance, offering punches of silver and golden hues, and the amazing silhouette cookies (Cinderella Stories), the petite sweets were scrumptiously executed. We adorned Cinderella Stories’ large tiered cake with coordinating black lace and flower. We used vintage books, linens, cake stands, and dome platters to arrange Frosted’s elegant cupcakes to create a table that truly says Love Is Sweet. Behind the vintage inspired dessert tables, we fashioned whimsical frames hung with black satin ribbon in the trees and adorned black shutters with a lace bow for a small backdrop.

The floral design by Lisa Cushing of Petals By Design was stunning and simple through the use of single cut stems and arrangements that combined vintage book pages and jute twine with lovely white hydrangeas, baby’s breath, roses, and ranunculus. With timeless white milk glass and mason jar props from A Style Collective, the floral was a subtle display of rustic charm. We also crafted do? it?yourself book page flowers to add to the bouquet and boutonnière to play up the use of these elements in the paper goods as well as the vintage books in the tablescape.
