vintage glamorous styled shoot

Vintage accessories, a rustic barn, DIY charm and a glamorous chandelier – sounds like our ideal event! Seriously, all those elements combined are ingredients for an absolutely gorgeous event…in this case, a styled shoot. You can find so much inspiration for your own event with these lovely images shared with us by  Jalapeño Photography.

In the words of Edwina, photographer from Jalapeño Photography: The backdrop for our shoot, Ekster Antiques, used to operate storefronts in the Northern Virginia and Maryland antiques’ districts, but Caroline Verschoor with Ekster Antiques got away from the restrictions of operating a shop on Main Street when she began selling her Frenchy-chic antiques quarterly out of her barns in Hamilton, VA. Ekster Antiques’ barns are a dream location for any girl who’s ever owned a glue fun. The barns are a perfect mix of rustic, mercury glass-bling, and high style.

The hair and makeup for models Tiffany Griffith and Joshua Medellin were spot-on and done by MakeUp by Tiffany M. Tiffany ensured that the makeup and hair appeared fresh and clean, and then gentle played up the lips and curls to give our bride, Tiffany, a little va va voom. 

The flowers were assembled by the hip Anthomanic —which translates from Ancient Greek as “a person who suffers from an extravagant passion for flowers.” Perfect name for Amanda’s business! Amanda with Anthomanic incorporated beautiful and in-season flowers, which was the perfect complement to the Frenchy antiques. The drinks were styled by Lindsay with the Well Fed Hospitality Group, a restaurant consulting upstart for the DC market. The cocktails were a Bulleit Bourbon Sweet Tea Mint Julep and a ginger beer float. Visually beautiful and perfectly refreshing. The invitations were styled by the Dandelion Patch. Off white invitations played up the vintage feel of the shoot, while the pinks and greens helped continue the muted color pallet. 

Hasna with Sugar Lips Confectionery styled the picture-perfect cake. Ruffles incorporated the elegance of the antiques, and the robin eggs added the perfect pop of color and played on the shoot’s rustic charm. 

The favors were caramel apples dipped in white chocolate and pecan, a Jalapeño Photography styling element. These apples are a crisp and visually stunning favor for fall weddings.
