Blush and Gold Vintage Inspired Styled Shoot

We are so excited to share the photos from our vintage inspired styled shoot! Back in June we had the opportunity to participate in a styled shoot challenge through the Rising Tide Society. The Rising Tide challenge was a great experience and inspired us to organize our own styled shoot. After some brainstorming, the idea eventually evolved into a branding shoot for Pixie Dust Events.

Finding our Photographer

The first step was finding a photographer to work with and we really hit the jackpot! In a google search for  “vintage photographer” we found Elise at Mod Bettie. After our consultation with Elise we knew we had found a perfect fit. Her warm personality, ability to understand our brand and amazing vintage studio was exactly what we had been searching for.

Searching for Inspiration

The second step was finding our vision. While searching for ideas, I remembered a Cinderella themed styled shoot I came across while planning my wedding back in 2012. We loved the vintage plates, gold chargers and beautiful florals they used to highlight Cinderella’s french origin.

Lucky for us, we found some great pink and gold vintage plates and gold vases at Home Goods. We also used gold dipped vases from Etsy and clear candy jars decorated with ribbon, feathers and brooches to add some modern touches to the shoot.

Shoot Day

Despite only getting four hours of sleep the night before the shoot, everything went according to plan. We arrived on location early to find Elise ready to assist us with unloading and decor setup. Shortly after, our makeup artist and hair dresser Jennifer Bartlett arrived. Jennifer did her magic and made us look beautiful (thank goodness for concealer!). The day went by in a flash, and before we knew it the shoot was over. We are thankful that we got to work with so many amazing vendors and look forward to working on future projects.

Boho Inspired Bridal Shower

We were so excited to participate in this boho inspired bridal shower styled shoot. This was the first styled shoot that Pixie Dust Events had ever participated in, so we were honored to work with so many great Detroit wedding vendors.

Modernly Events and Alison Chang Photography took the lead on the shoot. The shoot took place at a old Farmington Hills’ warehouse that had gorgeous light and just the right amount of vintage industrial charm. The stunning concept was influenced by both boho and mid century vibes. Aimee and Alison also choose a color palette that consisted of creams, blush, wood tones and pops of copper to go along with the modern shoot influences. As part of our contribution, we helped source many of the copper accessories, linens and event favors.

Real Wedding: Lenny & Shannon

We were lucky enough to work with Lenny and Shannon on their special day a few weeks ago. We assisted with coordination and created one of our custom dessert tables. Lenny was a fun, creative bride that loved mixing modern and traditional styles – something we specialize in. We loved the fact that Lenny created many of the pieces that we used for her wedding, giving her wedding a unique custom feel.
