{Styled Shoot} A Vintage Affair at Sotterley Plantation

I feel like someone picked my brain for details I adore and set them to become a reality in this gorgeous styled shoot!  Seriously! I cannot wait to start putting styled shoots in my repertoire, and this shoot is as if I had any part in it.  I did not, I assure you, it's all the beautiful collaboration of Bandon Malone Photography and TreBella Events, held at Sotterley Plantation in Hollywood, Maryland.

Brandon, the eye behind the lens, had this to share of how this collaboration came to be:
TreBella Events styled this "Vintage" Themed photo shoot on a midsummer day in July. The venue, Historic Sotterley has a very old world, vintage feel with a bit if rustic character. The venue hosts a main home, beautiful gardens, views of the river, as well as a barn where receptions are held. We tried to capture each of these elements in the photo shoot as well as display detailing of purple, copper, and teal blue accents. The bride wore two different dresses - one overlaid with lace and the other accented with diamonds. The brooch bouquet, flower girl basket, and ring bearer pillow all worked together to accent the look of the models. The 1959 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce set the tone as a backdrop to many of the photos. 

Ahh, the Royce, the colors, all of it...be still my heart! Behold this fabulous styled shoot, captured by Bandon Malone Photography:


What I am drawn to the most in this shoot is the gorgeous color palette of teal, bronze and purple.  The details in the table setting, with colored glassware, peacock feathers, glittered ornaments, and escort cards with beautiful calligraphy has us swooning.  The theme could be described as peacock themed, yet the actual peacock details are minimal, which works well.  

The dresses are something else, and I love the twist on the veil, with that stunning fascinator headpiece! It's a very regal looking accessory.  Another accessory we love is the fantastic brooch bouquet! The feather bouquet is also very pretty.  Both bouquets inspire me to create a few of my own!

Many thanks to Bandon Malone Photography for submitting to us this fabulous styled shoot!

  1. Beautiful couple. Beautiful accessories. Beautiful wedding. Everything is great! I love that bridal bouquet of brooches. They're very unique. I hope to find some beautiful pieces when I shop for wedding accessories in perth. Great photos!

  2. The pictures look great! What I love the most is the hair jewelry on the 9th picture. Before my wedding, I had to request for a customized hair jewelry that could go with my slightly-red, naturally wavy hair. Everything I've found in stores were too common, so my best friend referred her well-trusted jewelers.

  3. Love the shade of purple. The bottles are very cute!
