We were so excited to see our work recently featured on Style Me Pretty for this Midcentury modern California Estate Wedding inspiration! This shoot has shown us just how incredible the right team of creatives can be.
Midcentury modern style with old world elegance
We worked with the uber talented Kelly Oshiro to bring to life an estate wedding vision that was both modern and romantic-clean but soft around the edges. Fresh, but with just the right amount of patina. Here's some insight into the design from Kelly:
"Inspired by a modern couple, who loves both mid-century design and old world elegance, I created this contemporary wedding shoot for Booth Photographics. For the bride, I pulled an elegant Delphine Manivet wedding pantsuit from Solstice Bride paired with handmade modernist jewelry from VLM Jewelry, and a sleek ponytail by Studio MMB. For our groom, a timeless white dinner jacket was paired with velvet loafers, all from The Black Tux. I also pulled designers sunglasses from Gogosha Optique for a few sleek and modern wedding portraits.
The ceremony was envisioned as an intimate elopement, held in front of the fireplace at Fenyes Mansion, with understated ferns and geometric lanterns decorating the space. Dinner was setup on the beautiful balcony of the turn of the century mansion. Modern black and tan bentwood chairs from Yeah Rentals! were paired with a gray velvet linen from La Tavola and the place setting was decidedly modern with marble plates from the Ark and a plated fig salad. Twig and Twine created a loose, organic arrangement in moody fall colors with smoke bush, chocolate cosmos and garden roses. Simple gold taper holders from CB2 held traditional bee’s wax candles. A simple tiered cake from Lele Patisserie was decorated with fall foliage and individual hyacinth blooms."
Every detail tells a story
We believe that every photo from your wedding day should strengthen the story of your love, even down to photos of details, place settings, and florals. Kelly demonstrated how valuable a stylist is in creating those stories on your wedding day through styling. Her work behind the scenes freed us up to focus on creating intentional, story-telling images. Because even a photo of a place setting should tell your story and feel lived in.
