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.

25th Anniversary-72

With vintage touches and a gold and plum color palette we designed a surprise 25th anniversary party for one of our own. Tom came to us in early May wanting to plan a surprise anniversary party for his wife Lee. We were of course thrilled to work on this event.

We went to one of our favorite venues in Lansing, the Rosewood Inn. We also created a dessert table that featured a cake by Bella e Dolce. Other fun activities included a photobooth and games with prizes for the winners.

Congratulations Tom and Lee on 25 happy years!
