TRENDING – Romantically Re-Purposed
Barn & Ballroom Brides alike are loving a little homespun charm for their big day.
Re-purposed and re-designed vintage props and decor are finding their way into every aspect of weddings. Everything from vintage doors, old shutters, antique bureaus and suitcases are serving a purpose. Re-claimed palette wood bars, love it! Old shutters as table runners? Why Knot? They add the perfect touch of rustic charm to your table-scape. Your grandma’s old dresser as a cake table? Sweet! Vintage double door ceremony arch? Oh so unexpected!
Check out this Styled Shoot at one of our favorite New Jersey Destination Venues, The Ashford Estate. While the ballroom is grand and the guest house is opulent, the rustic ceremony barn and scenic grounds steel the show. For this shoot we hit all the big trends including ethereal gowns, lush blooms, drapey bouquets, organic details and unexpected props, vintage decor, stunningly styled vingettes and subdued colors with opulent accents.
For this Shoot we created a grand head table using an antique refurbished library table. The table was sanded and infused with gold paint to give it a little sparkle. Old dining chairs were given new life with a distressed paint technique and re-upholstered cushions. The piece that we are most excited about is the grand bench. It came to us as an old bed frame and once we took it apart, chopped it up and reassembled with a bench seat and some luxurious pillows the results were more then we could have hoped for! The Cake Display is one of our favorite set ups to style! For this look we went with a stack of vintage suitcases piled high for the cake to sit on top of and framed with an antique gold frame. Some other romantically re-purposed pieces in this shoot were the china cabinet turned martini bar, tattered wallpaper, vintage door backdrop perfect for selfies and the oversized gold frame attached to vintage doors that were the perfect photo-op prop.
Watch our table-scape come to life!
