Elegant Weddings

Richard Israel

If ever there was a wedding dress that made our jaws drop and stopped us in our tracks, it’s this one from Ship To Shore. The gown was worn to perfection by bride Adriana, who enlisted the talents of Richard Israel, The Graceful Host, and Chelish Moore to pull together an elegant and modern celebration with her beau, Terrell.

From the photographer, Richard Israel: Although Adriana was my client on wedding day we’ve worked together extensively over the last several years in the capacity of model and photographer on many editorial shoots. This wedding was a photographers dream… In addition to the fact that Adriana and Terrell are obviously an extremely good looking couple and the wedding so beautifully designed they placed their number one priority on insuring their family and friends had the best of times, good food great music, dancing, celebrating their heritages and not holding back on the love and emotion.

Art Deco week: Jewelry

Fashion & Beauty

Photos by:

Art Deco jewelry mirrors the essence of the Art Deco movement, full of bold colors and various geometric shapes. Other characteristics that easily recognizable are trapezoidal shapes, clean lines, stepped edges and rounded arches. What not everyone know, however, is that the movement was influenced by indigenous motifs from the Ancient Aztec and Egypt, or tribal African motifs. Contrasting colors such as Onyx and white metals or diamonds were commonly seen. Because the Art Deco movement was based on the “machine age”, white metals such as platinum, rhodium, silver and white gold were used to lend the industrial “look”.

I never had so much fun browsing images for a post! Here are some of my favorite finds:

Art Deco Garnet ring

1. Art Deco Enamel earrings; 2.Mother of Pearl Silver earrings

Silver bracelet with rhinestones

14k Gold and Zircon ring

If you’re searching for “bridal” Art Deco earrings, check out Adriana Orsini’s Pave Earrings and Ben-Amun’s earrings (for anyone who asked where I got my earrings, they’re Ben Amun style SKU# 00134).

Old World Southern Charm Elopement Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

Vitor Lindo

Maybe it’s the riveting feeling of escape from a quotidian world or maybe it’s the rich history that each cobblestone and brick exudes, but we’d be lost in a world without Savannah. In today’s styled shoot, Vitor Lindo captures the elegant tranquility of a city that boasts enough love stories to fill our history books. To give this elopement a European twist, Tristan Needham and Colonial House of Flowers combined buttercream blooms, rich hand lettering and a delicate china pattern that puts a twinkle in our eyes. The soft neutral palette of the tablescape is the perfect complement for the distinctive architecture in the background, and the lace detail trailing the bride’s gown is enchanting to say the least. Prepare to be mesmerized as you step into the wonderful world of Savannah.

Old World Southern Charm Elopement Inspiration -

From the photographer, Vitor Lindo: Savannah’s southern charm can sometimes be well, a bit too southern. In this styled shoot we aimed to create something more upscale and European. Something one would find in any old city in the world. The Harper Fowlkes House was this perfect venue. It exuded the “old world” feel in and gave this styled shoot a ‘je ne sais quoi’ and allowed us to shot Savannah in a different light.
