"Our creative team was inspired to produce a shoot that offered a modern twist on a classic aesthetic. We were inspired by the venue itself, The Ebell of Long Beach which boasts in class & sophistication. Between the details of its modern chandeliers & rich mahogany mantles this venue is the perfect setting for an eclectic couple seeking a tasteful take on what we know as “the modern classic”. For style inspiration, our team incorporated seasonally rich berry tones, & deep navy throughout the design of our coordinating stationary, florals, & tablescapes. The gorgeous stationary highlights artisan touches like gold calligraphy over water colored fine art paper that were simply admirable works of art ensuring to set the mood for any swanky soirée`. Our sophisticated tablescape design featured lush floral centerpieces creating a fine balance between greenery & florals for a soft natural balance allowing the entire table design to shine. Amongst the soft florals we paired dark tableware chargers on top of a lace & sparkle linen that are sure to enhance the mood in any setting. Our team ensured to pair our style theme with our Bride & Groom’s looks for a cohesive wedding style. The Bride features a beautiful mermaid gown with a lace beaded bodice to solidify the classic beauty & sparkle that flows perfectly with our theme. All while our stylish Groom sports more of a modern “separates look” including a coordinating polka dotted bow tie, known as the most definitive statement of class. Last but not least, no wedding is complete without an epic exit! As if they weren’t classy enough... Our B+G made an unforgettable grand exit posing next to this beautiful creamy colored classic Porsche. - What a dream!"
