Inspiration: 1960’s Mod Photo Shoot
The cake from Elysia Root Cakes, featured a square shape, smooth texture, with a pop of color and pattern. The pattern seen on the cake was incorporated throughout our stationery elements designed by Spilled Ink Press. That same pattern was carried over with the sweets table backdrop where we repurposed embroidery rounds painted royal blue and chicken wire as an architectural piece to hang floral elements from.
The whole shoot was perfectly brought together by Tuan H. Bui’s photographs. He capture the drama and excitement of the 1960’s style of entertaining and of our stylish models. Our bride wore a true 1960’s beaded dress with white gloves. Her makeup and hair, done by Debra Petrielli, captured the times perfectly. Our groom drew his inspiration from the Beetles with the skinny a pant and bright blue suite coat. His look was perfectly finished with a yellow patterned tie.
