From Stacy K Floral… What a gem that the Finger Lakes has a wonderful location in the heart of Ithaca. This Firelight Camps styled shoot was shot entirely on medium format film which helps to give it that dreamy enchanting look by Alexandra Elise Photography. The creative collaboration was inspired by the hand painted silk scarves and skirts designed by Louelle Design Studio. The color and patterns custom created for the bride and bridesmaids inspired the color scheme.

Firelight Camps was the perfect setting for the organic feel we were striving for to highlight these skirt designs. The invitations rested perfectly upon the Petunia Rose china. Coral peonies, king proteas,and textural greens and blooms helped highlight all of the other amazing creations. The final piece to really bring it all together was the New Mexican turquoise heirloom jewelry.

We started our shoot with an intimate tablescape off the back deck with gorgeous natural light illuminating the entire area. Then we walked out back to the Buttermilk Falls trail to continue our shoot in the lush greenery. There is such a sense of calm at Firelight with the crackling of the fire and the birds chirping. What better way to celebrate your wedding than at a glamping destination in the Finger Lakes where you can have your ceremony & reception right on-site– minutes from Buttermilk Falls– and also have your closest family and friends stay on site to continue the celebration!

1950’s Style Wedding Every Vintage Bride Will Love

At first glance, you might assume this wedding is from decades past. But sure enough, it’s a modern day affair inspired by 1950’s, Mad Men style charm. The bride opted for a nontraditional silhouette paired with the prettiest hat veil and nailed the vintage chic look to a T. See it all in The Vault from L&L Style Photo.


From The Bride…What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

We definitely wanted a more intimate wedding and something that reflected our values as a couple. We chose a forager’s theme because we first met at a foraging event. We shared a little bit of our world on that special evening – from the food, which was vegetarian and vegan to the instax photos, which shared our love for all things analog and old-school.

What was your color palette and your style vision?

For the color, we chose lots of green with splashes of white and crimson flowers. The white and green complimented the venue, which had a 1950s, mad-men era charm to it. In terms of style, we wanted something alternative but classic at the same time. We didn’t want to spend too much energy with the minute details that others were convincing us were absolutely necessary but weren’t important to us.

What unique elements or DIY details did you include?

Our DIY scattered fruits and nuts arrangements (consistent with the forager’s theme) by my maid-of-honor and our playful, culturally themed children’s table.

What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?

I wanted to create a signature scent for my wedding. We used 20 Diptyque Baies candles and it was definitely worth the splurge. When we entered the dining room, guests were greeted with the smell of Baies – it was truly amazing.

Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors, your cake, etc.

Our flowers were sourced by our floral designer, Colie Colleen of Flowerscout – she’s so talented! She works with local flower farms in the Hudson Valley to offer an array of locally sourced seasonal flowers for all her clients. I have an aversion to big clusters of flowers and she was able to create these amazing arrangements that were truly organic and represented the natural greenery of a garden. My gown was self-designed after it was purchased from Net-a-Porter. I worked closely with Ignacio, my tailor, to create the classic 1950s silhouette. He’s the industry’s best kept secret and has done alteration work for Chanel for years now. I don’t like traditional veils, so I went with a hat instead. Shoes – I’m all about comfort and moving around, so I had to switch to sneakers in the middle of the night (totally unplanned). I’ve had those sneakers for years and they’re over-worn, but they’re super comfortable and perfect for dancing away in the night. We didn’t have wedding favors, but guests were encouraged to take home the Baie candles.

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

I was all about everything being perfect, but one thing I would do differently is to relax and just enjoy the process. Everything planned and unplanned will be awesome in the end. AND…don’t forget to ask your local talent (friends, family, etc.) for help.

Gold + Lucite + Green = Wedding Dreams.

If you’re looking to inject a bit of modern romance into your upcoming celebration, here you go. The ultimate wedding inspiration dreamed up by CCL Weddings And Events that you’ll want to share with your vendors pronto. From the lucite invitation, to the skyline ceremony, Ruth Eileen Photography has captured it all to share and we’ve got it waiting for you in The Vault!

From CCL Weddings And EventsWith a view of a skyline like this, the W Loft in Brooklyn is a minimalist space that naturally captures the beauty of New York amidst the hustle and bustle. For this styled shoot we featured elements such as marble, plexiglass and gold accents to represent the classic, modern bride who loves timeless styling and contemporary elements.

We wanted the reception table to be more than a table with a linen so we teamed up with Taylor Creative for their glass tabletop. Their leather benches and plexiglass armchairs were stunning with the table! Marble accents and gold dinnerware graced the furniture from Taylor Creative, while Wild Floral Designs brought life to the shoot by incorporating loosely gathered palm leaves into the florals. They also created an impeccable arch that was intentionally not connected to truly accent and frame the skyline behind the ceremony altar. Along with the leather benches used for seating and plexiglass boxes filled with fauna, the ceremony space was designed to have a clean look because the couple and the cityscape would be the signature touch to the overall look of the wedding. The model wore a jaw dropping gown from Sarah Seven, embodying nothing short of elegance. Sugar Couture designed and created a stylish marble cake to match the theme of the shoot. Small Paper Co designed a stunning invitation suite produced by Aether Workshop with an acrylic invitation and a gold mirrored backing. Any wedding event wouldn’t be complete without “his” and “hers” cocktails with custom cocktail stirrers designed and created by Letters to You that read “bottoms up” and “l’chaim.” Our team could not have created such a spectacular shoot without the help of all the talented vendors who made it all possible!
