Lucy, from Lucy Munoz Photography, gives us a behind the scenes explanation of how this shoot came about: “Our inspiration started with our love for the Earth and the organic components (water, air, land, and sunlight) that make it such an amazing place to live in. We incorporated these elements throughout our vintage stylized wedding shoot because of our love for nature and it’s earthy tones…
The table setting had a rustic log that was used as a vase. We felt that the addition of Chinese mums made it feel so alive and touchable. The silverware was wrapped in jute to make it feel more earthy and organic. We also added a musical request birdbath where guests are able to fill in their favorite songs that could be played throughout the night. We love that there is a sign on one of the bird that reads, “Hey song bird, can I have this dance?” The models Allyson Cunha and Miguel Cervantes wore vintage wedding attire that was relaxed yet fitting of the scene. The amazing Flawless Team lead by Nancie Serrano and Angie Torres conceptualized make-up and hair as a throwback to the 20’s. They put feathers in Allyson’s hair creating a synergy between the birds on the table and the element of air (one of our inspirational themes).
The gorgeous wedding cake was done by The Cake Mamas. We loved that they did the fondant in a pale blue (mimicking the water component). The compass also took from the water theme and the decorations kept it looking ultra vintage. Kupcakz etc did the beautiful cupcakes. We loved that they looked like old vintage ribbons that had fallen right into place.
Our surprise DIY component was the place cards. We thought it would be a great idea to recycle old tree trunks. We decided to use a log that had been previously cut down. We drilled holes and put in vintage looking doorknobs. The end result? A gorgeous eco friendly way to recycle and reuse previously cut down trees.
