Today’s wedding styled shoot features a 1920s-inspired theme with pops of color — gold, ivory, peach, and pink. Think: Great Gatsby! The bride wore a satin v-neck wedding gown, accessorized with a pearl statement necklace and headband, while the groom wore a classic black tuxedo, accessorized with a bow tie. A sequined and balloon covered backdrop served as the focal point along with clocks to prepare for the stroke of twelve. Floral arrangements included roses, hydrangeas, scabiosa pods, pine cones, and greenery. We love how the natural elements are sparkling with glitter, and let’s not forget the champagne toast. A New Year’s Eve celebratory necessity. Cheers, y’all, here’s to 2014!
