My oh my do we have a treat to start your week! Thanks to our dear friend Amy of Amy Champagne Events, today we have a gray wedding styled shoot inspired by a literary character of the same name. After seeing these photos, I think that Christian Grey would approve! The design of this shoot is stunning and the models are drop dead sexy! The drama of the staircase at The Patterson Club, the modern color scheme, the unique lighting and never been seen before lit menu by Shindig Lighting, the bridal attire by The Plumed Serpent Bridal are some of our favorite elements of this shoot. The luxurious coordinating cakes by Lovely Cakes, hair and makeup for this stunning model by Beauty Bar, the black acrylic chandeliers by Nicole Ketchum, and the mis-matched silver and china by Borrowed, A Vintage Style Company add drama and life, taking a soft color palette and giving it an edge… each element of this shoot was pure perfection and I just know you are going to love it!
We always love when a photo shoot or wedding’s photos are accompanied by an amazing video to allow us all to see more of the story. BSC Photo shot all of the photographs while BSC Cinema did an incredible job of catching all of the details of this shoot:
From event designer Amy Cagginello… “Black tie” is so classic and always the definition of sophistication and elegance. Very often black tie is so consumed with tradition that events and décor lack individuality, which inspired us to combine black tie elegance with the sexy mysteriousness of the color gray. Our “Shades of Grey” inspired photo shoot at the ultra exclusive Patterson Club located in the Greenfield Hill section of Fairfield, Connecticut was intended to combine the regal elegance of a black tie event with the sexy connotation of “Shades of Grey,” accented with a jolt of color through the persimmon to add a bit of personality and playfulness.
The tablescape décor sat nestled at the foot of a double grand staircase, complete with floor to ceiling molded walls and rich and modern wenge floors. For a rich and opulent look, we layered three different linens with grey tones and patterns with coordinating sheer chair jackets adorned by the clear Lucite chivari chairs. Mismatched silver vintage china from Borrowed added an interesting yet formal look to each place setting, along with persimmon rimmed champagne flutes that also served as place cardholders. Floral arrangements from Fleurescent sublimely captured the black tie formality with the spirit of Grey’s unpredictability through the eye catching persimmon jolts of color.
With no further ado these incredible photographs from BSC Photo… let the lip biting begin…
We just swoon over these gorgeous printed invitations and paper accessories by Roseville Designs. Is that a leather envelope we see? How positively innovative!
I adore the colors and textures mixed in these centerpieces!
Because we were inspired by the of the hybrid of tradition and youthfulness of this project, we decided “why have one cake when you could have five?” Lovely Cakes created a tablescape of five different cakes with varying tiers and designs that could make even the most disciplined salivate for a slice. A few of the elements of the photo shoot that we absolutely adored were the modern translucent acrylic chandeliers by Nicole Ketchum and the custom light projection menu by Shindig Lighting.
^^ I think I just stopped breathing. ^^
