When Velvet Bride recently got a new designer to their shop (the wonderful Leanne Marshall), they figured the best way to spread the news was to create a styled shoot showcasing the gorgeous gowns and fresh wedding decor. Obviously, we agree – the result is absolutely magical! A team of all-stars including Cluney Photo, Habitat Events, and Habitat Floral Studio came together to create a Cinco de Mayo theme with some lovely handmade touches.
From the owner of Velvet Bride: For this shoot, we styled it with a Cinco De Mayo theme. We recently added a new designer to our shop, Leanne Marshall, and were thrilled to shoot an all-time favorite dress from her collection, The Danielle! This dress is very soft and romantic so we wanted to style it against a rougher, industrial backdrop to get an interesting juxtaposition. We chose the historic Missoula Mercantile building as a venue, which is currently in the middle of an intensive revitalization project to reveal its original design and character. What we found in the venue was magic! Old brick walls, exposed vaulted tin ceilings, metal spiral staircases, and warehouse-style paned windows which paired perfectly with our theme.
For this shoot we wanted to showcase a vibrant color palette of pinks, yellows, peaches, and greens. The bridesmaids wore a pop of color on their lips with bold black and white patterned dresses while the bride remained softer with a gorgeously colorful bouquet. The bride’s dress features hand-dyed lace and a full, silk organza skirt that floats like a dream! The details included a taco bar from Five on Black, floral center pieces from Habitat Floral, and an invitation suite from Ink the Paperie. We loved this shoot and how beautifully Mark from Cluney Photo captured its essence.
