You know what's better than an entire shoot dedicated to 1920's glamour?  An entire shoot dedicated to 1920's glamour that also happens to be planned and executed by a serious dream team of NYC vendors. Think the powerhouses that are Violet and VerdeCake AlchemySB Beauty and Private Receptions (just to name a few) all coming together to create a day of serious vintage-inspired lovely set against the amazing Green Building.  Yes, it's awesome... and you can see it all captured by Moss + Isaac right here.

From Private Receptions... Picture a smoky jazz club: a live band croons a love song while a man waits for his whiskey. A woman walks in and the crowd parts; their eyes meet. Drink forgotten the man asks the woman to dance... and dance... and dance. Fast forward to their wedding day...

The idea for our 1920's shoot came from our good friend Bridget of Violet and Verde. When she approached us with the idea we immediately jumped on board and began assembling a team of our favorite vendors to work with! After choosing a color scheme of peach and lavender Bridget and I, together, looked for venues willing to host us.

My first thought for was The Green Building in Brooklyn with their intricate patterned walls, sexy speakeasy-esque room, and stunning chandelier. Fortunately, they were available and were happy to accommodate us. The incredibly talented Leigh Anna of Moss + Isaac provided photography for the day and captured the feel and beauty of the shoot perfectly, as always. I'm still stunned by how wonderful the photos turned out!

Of course, Bridget out-did herself with spectacular floral arrangements! She really brought the whole room to life with plump Juliet roses, lavender anemones, lamb's ear, Amnesia roses, sweet peas, peonies and so much more. It was like a floral wonderland!

Sharon Becker of SB Beauty turned our models into 1920's movie stars with hair and makeup. (Those eyes! That hair!) Hushed Commotion provided the gorgeous headpieces - the long veil she made specifically for the shoot! We all loved it so much we wanted to wear it, too!

The incredible china, cut glass, doilies, books, handkerchiefs and chair came from Little Vintage Rentals who were just wonderful to work with. (Thanks, Mandy!)

The outstanding cake and cupcakes was created especially for the shoot by Cake Alchemy. (Many thanks!)

Our stationer, A&P Design Co, was able to take the photos I sent her from the venue and translate them into a gorgeous letter-press invitation suite. She echoed the pattern on the walls in the entry-way onto the invitations! How gorgeous?!

...and they lived happily ever after.
