Glam Peacock Masquerade Wedding Inspiration

Celebrating with a Styled Shoot

We are so excited to finally share the Glam Peacock Masquerade Styled Shoot on our blog! This has been one of our favorite shoots to date with it’s a perfect combination of our love for vintage and modern styles. The glamorous shoot took place at the historic DIME Building as part of a celebration of the one year anniversary of the Detroit Rising Tide Society. We had a blast working with all the ladies and were honored to be included in the shoot.


Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this styled shoot all began when Lynsey stumbled upon a set of gorgeous turquoise and gold peacock plates at a local store. The design concept was expanded after a visit to our favorite linen shop, Special Occasions East. They have so many beautiful options, narrowing it down was not an easy choice! In the end, we decided on a gorgeous metallic coral linen with teal napkins and turquoise chair sashes. To give the shoot a more glamorous feel, we added lots of gold accessories and details. Some of our favorite decor accessories included the crystal cake stands, vintage gold silverware, and mirrored side table.

Sweets and Treats

One of the highlights of this glamorous styled shoot was the amazing dessert table, with desserts from Bella e Dolce Cakes! Erin made a custom cake that included a masquerade cake topper, gold lace accents and vertical pearl appliques. She also created mini-tarts, cake truffles and macarons that were included on the dessert table. Gummy bears and chocolates were also included on the mirrored gold table to create a mini sweets display.



It’s All in the Details

We had a blast participating in this shoot. Some of our favorite details also included the stunning invitations and paper goods by Invitations by Caitlin. We also loved the gift box that Linda from Ask Your Bridesmaids so graciously sent us.

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.

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.
