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:

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.

Sunday Funday: Spotlight on Trumpet & Horn

Normally I would advise to stay away from the Internet when buying key pieces for your wedding. Dresses are being made overseas that claim to be designer gowns when in reality, they are fakes.

The CATCH: I stumbled upon a jewelry company a couple months ago that specializes in vintage, antique, estate and vintage-inspired jewelry. Their one of a kind status is what differentiates them from other jewelry stores. All jewelry is hand selected by the owners, who in my opinion have an incredible eye.

Each piece has a story to tell and that’s my favorite part! Check out my favorites…
