Super Stylish Sunday ~ A Great Gatsby OBSESSED Photo Shoot

Brideys, you are about to be blinded by this absolutely brilliant Great Gatsby photo shoot. Seriously. Turn off your phone (c'mon, just for a short while), shut the door, and allow yourself to be taken back to the 1920s with all of it's grandeur and elegance. Savor these sublime photographs, and perhaps even get some marvelous ideas for your wedding too!

A few words about this fantastic shoot: "The inspiration for this shoot came from that most opulent and glamorous Gatsby era, the inimitable 1920’s. The vision was to create marvelous scenes reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most notorious work. Full of grandeur and historic character, The Society Room of Hartford served as the perfect venue providing architectural drama and elegant interiors. We selected a rich jewel tone palette accented with silver and gold to create an overall majestic ambiance. This was further accomplished by the luxurious details styled by Dani Fine Photography, Tony Palmieri of Datura: A Modern Garden, Geoffrey Ecker and Kia Martinson of General Eclectic. Palmieri also designed gorgeous arrangements and custom bouquets to compliment each look worn by the models."

More details about these photographs: "The Dani Fine Photography team conceptualized, styled and photographed this remarkable shoot. What really made this shoot unusual was the collaborative effort to source genuine antiques from this period. We wanted to underscore the luxury, excess and utter beauty of the time by incorporating some authentic pieces. General Eclectic was a terrific resource to that end. Additionally we also had an amazing vintage dress provided by Tova’s Vintage Shop and a myriad of lavish jewels and other accessories provided by a variety stylists and experts."

If you know me at all, then you KNOW how I feel about cake, and this one? Fucking astonishing! The color pallet, the jewels and the styling alone blow me away!

I would love to sit at this table... 

A few words about the clothing, etc: "Beth Chapman, fashion stylist and owner of White Dress by the Shore was the genius behind the sumptuous gowns, fantastic headpieces, magnificent antique jewelry and accessories. The fellas, outfitted by Enzo Valentino of Valentino Tailors wore traditional tuxedos and stroller suits characteristic of the 1920’s."

I wish that I could have been a model for this shoot just for the opportunity to wear all of these awesome cloths! 

And now for a little bit of boudoir... DAMN.

Hot stuff...

So, I'm just going to say it. He's hot. And him in that tux? OMG.

Incredible bouquets. Just stunning.

That headpiece!!!! Holy shit! And the smoldering eyes? A MAZ ING! 

Just curious? Who doesn't want to wear this?

I cannot, for the life of me, get over how fucking fabulous the details are for this photo shoot! Right? I mean... Can you??

I want all of this. I want to get married again (to the same dude, of course!) just so I can have everything encapsulated in every single one of these photographs!

WOW! Just whoa... "This was an amazing project from start to finish."
