NYC Red Vintage Inspired Styled Shoot

I think Red just became my new favorite color. And it is all due to the gorgeous red details that are featured in this beautiful styled shoot from Sasha Chou Photography. When you have stunning florals, an exquisite gown,  and a killer New York City backdrop, then it is all over. All over with a swoon at every single amazing detail.  It is lovely inspiration like this, that makes me love my job more and more each and every day. I mean, come on, how breathtaking is the bride and groom in such a dreamy setting?  I kind of want to be transported to the city and get all dolled up with the pretty dress, the romantic flower crown, and surrounded by all the elegant details.  So, without further adieu,  lets dive into this perfectly made red vintage inspired styled shoot and enjoy a bit of wedding inspiration.



























Inspiration from Sasha Chou Photography

 We decided to do the shoot in the city’s East River Park, with the Williamsburg Bridge and the morning sunrise as our backdrop.

Our shoot featured many elements that most brides needing an inspirational boost can draw from. For example, the vintage dress being modeled in the shoot can appeal to a bride considering whether an heirloom dress can be made anew again.

Another idea that can be used for an inspirational feature is the beautiful floral crown adorned on our bride’s head. Budget and DIY brides are always looking for affordable alternatives to the pricey cathedral/double veils; so our floral crown can come to the rescue. This was created using a vibrant and bold red rose and balanced by ranunculus and brides protea intertwined amongst a vine of jasmine.

A special element for this shoot is the red shawl, which coincidentally ties in with the red of the bride’s bouquet, corsage and floral crown. It can add a special something to bride’s looking to incorporate the statement color into their wedding; even if it so happens to be red.

Floral Belts
Many brides will always want to keep their look classic, so having flowers on your belt keeps the tradition of the classic bride yet it adds a fun and flirty look to it all.  There was such a demand for flowers that we decided to create our Build Your Own Belt line! Each bride has the opportunity to pick the belt, the types of flowers and the adornment so that it’s customized specifically FOR her BY her.

Black Accessories
From the bride to her bridesmaids, women are getting more bold by experimenting with color. We’ve seen a surge of weddings where brides have worn black sashes. Some brides love the black and white look but may not be bold enough to wear it. Instead, they put it on their bridesmaids! For this particular wedding, we had the MOH in our Nadya Belt and the bridesmaids wore a customized belt that we did just for them. It was so popular that we named it after one of the bridesmaids! It’s called the Tina Belt.
