A Modern Vintage Styled Shoot

Antiques, exposed brick and raw, natural beauty were the inspiration for my Modern Vintage Shoot. Lace dresses and fluffy tulle skirts were the perfect pairing and gowns came pouring in from Kleinfeld Bridal, Concord Wedding Center, Matthew Christopher and Kimberly Pixton Couture.

The City Club, a local venue here in Concord, NC was the first stop in our photo shoot. The approximate capacity is around 600-1000 and this venue is simply beautiful. I am a huge fan of exposed brick, and this venue was simply stunning.


Items shown in the City Club Images are as follows:
-Allure Bridals “9051
(This dress can be found locally at Concord Wedding Center)
-Tuxedo from Jim’s Formal Wear at Concord Wedding Center
-Bouquet by Linda Gibson
-Lighted backdrop by Concord Wedding Center
-Jewelry borrowed from Pixton Couture
Pnina Tornai “32933053” (Can be found only at Kleinfeld Bridal)
Pixton Couture “Cymbeline”
-Cake by Sweet Boutique Bakery
Claire Pettibone “Alchemy” (Gown provided by Kleinfeld Bridal)
Pixton Couture “Demoiselle”
-Table Design by Linda Gibson
-Design & Decor by Concord Wedding Center
Matthew Christopher “Juliet”

The next location we shot at was an old warehouse. It’s chippy paint and exposed brick were a charming touch that was so perfectly contrasted with the gowns.


Items shown in the Warehouse Images are as follows:
Pixton Couture “Marianne”

The Depot is a “pickers paradise” when it comes to all things antique, old, and shabby chic- a perfect setting for my shoot. I found a diamond in the rough when deciding to set one of the locations at The Depot at Gibson Mill.

Okay, if you are a Castle fan, you probably are swooning over the Dress Beckett wears in tonight’s episode!
