Classic bridal traditions of the east coast mixes with the laid back vibe of California in this gorgeous wedding shoot set in Coloma, California.
Hair and makeup was done by the Prestige House of Beaute in Placerville – the bride’s hairstyle is a perfect example of going back to timeless beauty in contrast to the long, flowing styles seen in many weddings of late. The architecture and landscape of Northern California served as the setting for our shoot. Natural materials and golden sunlight contrasted beautifully with our elegant bridal gown and décor.
Gorgeous accents with diamonds and pearls provided that vintage touch, while the bridal bouquet was fresh and modern using a beautiful array of textured flowers in a neutral color palette. Our bride wore a voluminous ball gown with a strapless neckline, which encompassed that traditional beauty we were looking for in this shoot. While a more casual style for grooms – such as wearing sports jackets or khaki – has become the norm, we wanted to take it back to a classic vibe with a James Bond-inspired tuxedo.
From the photographer: “I wanted to show that even with trends all around us we don’t have to fall into them…we can stick to the classics and still be unique. Beauty is timeless!
