One thing is for sure, elegance will never die! We got a little phone call from Elizabeth Cooper Design a bit ago to do a shoot with them for a few of their new dresses, and boy was it dreamy! Our lead designer Tressa styled this shoot and I mean… come on!! She KILLED it! We asked Tressa her thoughts and feelings on this stunning shoot and this is what she said!
“When Arin from Elizabeth Cooper Design contacted us about styling an ‘Ethereal’ shoot for her, the first words that came to mind were light, delicate and airy, and I got really excited! This was a new style for me. As I started looking around for inspiration I decided I wanted to create a fine balance between light and dark.”
“Elizabeth Cooper Design was getting ready to launch their new line of gowns, Saphia Blue, and wanted to showcase a few of the lovelies. We decided to do two set ups, and have a different gown for each. For the ‘Emerald’ gown we did a ceremony backdrop with a delicate greenery arch suspended from the ceiling so it appeared to be floating. The florals were light and airy, and pure perfection. We added a surround of lots of glistening glass and lit it all up beautifully with fairy lights and candles.”
“The “Pearl” gown is so exquisite I wanted the design elements to be elegant and dramatic. We decided to do a sweetheart table set up for this one and this is where I played with the light and dark balance. Matte black flatware, black glassware and black candles were juxtaposed with white, crisp linen, light florals and dinnerware, and a sweeping organza backdrop.”
“I learned that going out of my design comfort zone can result in absolutely perfection, especially when I have the most talented team to collaborate with. Don’t be afraid to play and incorporate design elements that you normally wouldn’t think of using. Think out of the box and create something new and inspiring!”
Seriously though Tress, amazing job! While she sleeps from all of her hard work, we’ll be drooling over the photos and wishing we were slow dancing the night away like these love birds!
And we can’t forget the lovely vendors!
