A 1920s Speakeasy-Inspired Wedding Styled Shoot
I am still so completely enamoured with all things Art Deco that I couldn’t wait to share this stunning Speak-easy inspired wedding inspiration shoot from La Candella Weddings with you. A fresh and romantic take on the style of the era, it is full of elegant details, vibrant colours and the most spectacular florals by Mt. Lebanon Florist – the bouquet is simply stunning!
The combination of the exquisite heels by much-loved CVB sponsor Bella Belle Shoes, the flapper inspired bridal makeup by Beauty by Joy and the opulent sweetheart table centrepiece and place settings styled by Yohana Williams Wedding Planning evoke all the glamour of one of Jay Gatsby’s famous parties, whilst the rich red calligraphed stationery by Margaret Madeleine Calligraphy, the soft chic updo by Kristen Donalson and the graceful one shouldered Pronovias wedding dress from Coni & Franc, against the beautiful backdrop of the grand Palazzo 1837 Ristorante, give it a refined elegance more suited to a Downton Abbey celebration.
Here are a few words about the shoot and how it came about, from Angie of La Candella Weddings “I adore getting to work with other creative wedding professionals. So, when Yohana Williams, a local wedding planner, contacted me about putting together a styled photoshoot, I was so excited! This shoot was based around the location we chose, the Palazzo 1837 Ristorante, located in Washington, PA. We decided on the theme of a 1920’s Speakeasy, and added a bit of Art Deco & Gatsby influences. I hope you enjoy it!”
Isn’t it divine?? Just so glitzy and glamorous, I do so love this look for a bride, it is the epitome of stylish! A big thankyou to the whole fabulous team (listed below!) who played a part in creating this speak-easy inspired celebration to life. And a special thanks to the lovely Angie of La Candella Weddings for capturing every gorgeous detail, and for allowing me to publish it on Chic Vintage Brides. These were just a few of my favourite images form the shoot, you will find more of them here on her blog. And be sure to pop across to her website www.lacandellaweddings.com to see more of her work.
