Hamilton Inspired Wedding at the Luxmore GrandeTHE GANEYS
Today’s oh so romantic wedding styled shoot was inspired by the Broadway hit musical Hamilton. An incredible team of vendors brought so much heart to this shoot mixing together 18th-century history, nods to the musical, and contemporary style ideas, making this shoot a truly creative endeavour and so inspiring.
Greta of Green Pearl Photography dreamt up this wedding between Alexander Hamilton and Eliza Schuyler after becoming enamored with the soundtrack. She searched high and low for the perfect team to bring her vision to life. Greta explained, “If you are not familiar with the story of Alexander and Eliza’s love, Alexander made a lot of mistakes, though Eliza chose to stay and she chose to repair their marriage. Then, once he was gone, she continued to tell his story and to keep his legacy alive, because she loved him that much even through his imperfections.”
The Luxmore Grand proved to be the perfect venue. Tucked away on the outskirts of Orlando it provided the feel of the Schuyler Mansion. The library, hardwood floors, grand foyer, and stained glass windows from the 1850’s made it the perfect backdrop for this shoot. There was a lounge, from RW Events, set up in the blue parlor, where Alexander and Eliza said their vows in the musical.
Eliza wore a lace and tulle Hayley Paige gown from The White Magnolia, Tampa. The blue skirt paralleled Eliza’s blue wedding gown from the musical. Her hair was pulled back in a twisted low bun. Her fresh, natural makeup was applied perfectly by Laura Reynolds Artistry. In her arms, she carried a lush garden style bouquet from Flowers by Lesley. Filled with ranunculus, white roses and greenery it complimented Eliza’s wedding attire perfectly.
The Schuyler sisters wore Jenny Yoo and Nouvelle bridesmaids dresses from Calvet Couture Bridal. The soft color palette was an appropriate representation from the musical. General George Washington (the groom’s “right hand man”) and John Laurens also attended the event. Each gentleman wore a custom suit from Bespoke & Co. Alexander Hamilton had a double-breasted vest in a beautiful blue tone.
The guests enjoyed specialty tea from K-Teas before moving into the reception space. The farm table from RW Style was set with pewter chargers and blue goblets from Ever After Vintage Weddings. Three lush centerpieces sat along the runner from Nuage Designs. At the end of the day, the wedding party enjoyed a piece of the incredible five-tiered wedding cake from The Pastry Studio.”
