Are you dreaming of a simple and soft vibe for your wedding day? Need some fab ideas? Then look no further than this perfect Maryland photo shoot, which took place at Rockwood Manor on a warm sunny day.
The collaborators on this shoot were aiming for a dreamy retro look and feel and that’s exactly the sentiment I get when I look at these photos. Soft pinks, various shades of green and shiny gold all go together so well and let’s face it, are a girl’s colour palette dream come true – well, at least mine. It’s a total winner in my books.
The flowers. Oh, the flowers. They are STUNNING. Isn’t that bouquet a complete show stopper? There are florals and greenery everywhere you look, including the gorgeous gardens of the venue, and I am in love.
Both the bride and groom’s outfits are simple and understated while still being fabulous. Future grooms out there, take note – you can still look formal AND have your own personal sense of style shine through by wearing a favourite tie or cool suspenders or even a fedora.
Thank you so much to Katy Murray Photography for providing us with these romantic ideas and images. You can read all the behind-the-scenes information below:
“This photo shoot, styled by Hannah Scazzero of Scazzero Illustration and photographed by Katy Murray at Katy Murray Photography, LLC, is reminiscent of days gone by. A simple, quiet elegance accompanies the vintage aura. The black and white photos give us even more of the vintage perspective.
Liana Vazquez, the bride, is wearing a strapless dress by Fabulous Frocks of Alexandria, with a fitted, lace-covered bodice and full skirt with layers of tulle. This dress has a flowing train and a vintage sage sash, courtesy of Mint Lola, tied in a bow. Liana’s dress is beautifully simple and she lets her natural elegance be her adornment, wearing only simple pearl earrings that add a touch of vintage romance. She wears her hair in an elegant french roll, enhanced by the hand-made 24K gold-plated hair comb by Mint Lola, elegantly designed with Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls. Liana’s hair and makeup are by Felicia Renee at Felicia Renee Beauty.
Our groom sports a dark, slim suit with a striped Burberry tie. His white Fedora takes us back to an earlier era.
The bouquet is by Kelly Shore, at Petals by the Shore. She used fragrant Eucalyptus stems and deep green Nagi to set off this large bouquet of shades of dusty rose and mauve. The pink peonies, symbolizing happy life/ happy marriage, good health and prosperity, are surrounded by radiant Ranunculus, light Larkspur, blissful Sweet Pea, Lavender Heather, and pale pink Tea Roses for perfect happiness.
The gazebo at Rockwood Manor is the ideal place for a private first dance. The sunshine and greenery frame the gazebo beautifully and give a wonderful glow to our couple.
The cake by Elise Smith at WinniE’s Bakery is served on an antique trestle desk under white Azaleas in full bloom, with the red brick of the Manor for a backdrop. The rose-colored settee is another ideal spot to relax and enjoy each other’s company in dappled sunlight amid more greenery and the Azaleas. Rentals by Faccia Fresca Vintage.
The invitation suite features watercolor calligraphy and artwork by Hannah Scazzero of scazzero illustration. Intertwining the couples’ names, the invitation artist uses emerald green, soft pinks, and delicate washes of watercolor to echo the happiness of this special day. The classic calligraphy and graceful flourishes emphasize the elegance of a bygone era.”
