Austin Wedding Photo Shoot by Christina Carroll Photography
October 4, 2011

I love the idea of old pieces, like antique furniture and decor, finding new life at a wedding which is, in itself, an ultimate celebration of new life and new beginnings.  This photo shoot by Christina Carroll Photography and the talented folks of Vintique Rentals perfectly illustrates how to make the timeless and classic look and feel new again.  Each piece is lovingly selected and styled to create an uber-romantic, Austin affair.  The florals by Visual Lyrics Floral Artistry, that incorporate local and seasonal blooms, are seriously works of art.  The result of this fantastic team collaboration is nothing less than spectacular and lovely.  See all the details in the full gallery!

From the photographer:

The “Past to Present Stylized Shoot” is a re-creation of a regal time where things long forgotten have been brought back as a new beginning. Vintique Rentals created timeless scenes with antique furniture, old clocks, whiskey jugs with prairie grasses, wrought iron candelabras, chandeliers, and stained glass. Many items in the Vintique Rentals collection have been pulled from barns and attics to find new life as vintage and antique props and scene setters. The historical western town of Star Hill Ranch created by Adam Whooley has a perfectly vintage ambiance. Visual Lyrics Floral Artistry added native grown cotton bloom wreaths, black rose succulents, and flowers in muted colors of antique mauve, mustard yellow and burgundy tones with a touch of champagne. The look and timeless feel was completed with hair, make up and vintage jewelry by April Skinner and Jordan Webb of Almost Impatient Productions, and the gown and belt by Blush Bridal Salon. Christina Carroll captured the 'past to present' vision fabulously.
