Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding Photoshoot…

Regular readers of Love My Dress may recall this feature shortly before Christmas, where Vintage Wedding Planner and Stylist Tiffany Grant-Riley debated 'what is a vintage wedding'. Tiffany illustrated her guest post with some inspirational photographs from a number of talented Photographers across the globe, one of which was the lovely Ashlee Carter, of US based Sakura Photo.

The photograph that Ashlee kindly allowed to be reproduced on Love My Dress, was actually part of a beautiful Great Gatsby inspired wedding photoshoot.

Ashlee told me more…

"This Gatsby Inspired styled wedding shoot was styled by myself and shot at the historic Stoneleigh Hotel in Dallas, Texas

I am a huge fan of Art Deco and the Roaring Twenties and wanted to create and photograph my dream vision of a wedding styled for this glamorous era…"

And what an amazing job Ashlee has done – I just adore the whole concept and love how Ashlee has pulled this whole look together so beautifully.  The model Bride in this shoot wears a stunning ivory embellished mesh gown, white ostrich feather and pearl fascinator and an art deco silver brooch and Swarovski crystal shoe clips…

I just love this shot of the female model being prepared for the shoot – that vintage inspired up-do is beeeeeeeeautiful !
