Created by 54 Event Planning & Design and Mishaun Arrington Photography, the inspiration for this pastel family heirloom wedding styled shoot began with a wedding picture from the Kennedy wedding, a perfect theme in a presidential election year.
About the Pastel Family Heirloom Wedding Inspiration
The team wanted it to have a vintage feel without it being too over the top or trying to replicate a specific time period completely. Ashley, the planner researched popular wedding colors from the 1950s and realized that her grandmother’s china, passed down from generations, would be the perfect addition to the tablescape. The shoot evolved into focusing on family heirlooms. In addition to Ashley’s grandmother’s china the heirlooms consisted of American Fostoria and Boopie glasses and sterling silverware.
When deciding on the perfect location for the styled shoot it was important to choose a location with rich history as well as a gorgeous landscape. The Ruins at the Barnsley Resort was a perfect fit with its exposed brick and elaborate gardens. The bricks at the Ruins brought out the true beauty and richness of the color palette.
The dress from Adore Bridal was a classic and demure look created by a Sabrina neckline, natural waistline and chapel length train. The lace of the dress complemented the linen and tied in with the theme eloquently.
