1950s Wedding and Engagement Styled Shoot

Brides&Dolls01.jpg

This is a retro 1950s inspired wedding and engagement shoot we put together for Brides & Dolls promo video. The engagement is a modern twist on 50s greaser style and the wedding portion features an authentic pink 50s wedding dress and crimson veil that pairs perfectly with the pink engagement ring. Modeling for us is a real life couple, Iris Ray & Benjamin White. The groom's boutonnière is a pin made from a handkerchief for a unique alternative to flowers and ties in with the greaser engagement. Those goodies paired with saddle oxfords and a retro bicycle make for a super sweet shoot. All paper details are hand pressed by Lucky Penny Paperie to suit the 50s style and announce their Valentine's Day wedding.  The cupcakes are custom designed by Knead to Bake to mirror the lace detail of the bride's pink gown. 1953 pink Cadillac model cars are favors that each guest is sure to love. It's a unique idea for off beat brides looking for some swoon worthy inspiration for their wedding day.
