From Lacy Pool + Jessica Epstein of Grayson Elise…We could not be any more in awe of the final product of this stylized shoot. The indulgence in couture design is almost tangible throughout the unbelievable images by Forever Photography Studio, and the collaborative efforts of this elite styling team transfers to yet again, a beyond perfect stage. The elaborate table setting, complete with original chair covers designs by Vintique Rentals, is a statement of beauty in itself, but overflowing with delectable sweets by Hill Country Cakery, this dessert buffet instantly translates into a masterpiece. Each flower arrangement and bloom were carefully selected and placed among the array of antique glassware and chic china pieces. Visual Lyrics took floral decor to another level of amazing. Textured stationery in gray and pink hues from Bittersweet Design Boutique decorate the table with thoughtful “what nots” and lovely product descriptions. These additions add dimension and exquisite detail.
Among the settings, there was a staged, fully-decorated antique mantle, adorned with florals, mirrors and feminine details throughout, which easily allowed for our handsome “groom” to admire his beautiful “bride.” The fainting couch is a beyond magical seating placement to showcase the fullness of the tulle skirt, reminiscent of a tutu.
Vintage ballerina-inspired pieces are scattered throughout this dramatic setting at the The Texas Women’s Federation, and the designer wardrobe carries the theme beautifully. The blush-toned Alita Graham ball gown sparkles with a fully-beaded, strapless bodice and a layered tulle skirt that glides over the wooden floors with the utmost grace. The exaggerated ballet bun hairstyle is surrounded by a satin beaded headband designed by Grayson Elise. The pink hues in her makeup palette and her strong brow translate into the look of a ultra-feminine dancer who exudes confidence and poise. Hair expert Jen Hoover and makeup artist Maris Malone Calderon beautifully brought this look to life. The artistry of Lizama Videography brings movement into this masterpiece of a shoot, giving a already uber-romantic setting the addition of subtle glances and gliding.
