After seeing today’s inspiration shoot, we’re totally on the off-white dress train. With the striking style of those late 70s black onyx rings as their muse, Heather Cook Elliott Photography + Tailored Engagements whipped up a shoot that reimagines this season’s most unique bridal trends—from sequined tablescapes to floral wall hangings and a hippie-chic bridesmaid dress + big jewels.

Heather says, We wanted to style a shoot for the new vintage bride that loves the sheerness of lace but not lace itself, the shimmer of sequins but not bling exactly, the romance of a crown with out wearing a tiara, the detail of handmade items but not thrift stores, and her coffee with a little gold, or rather, honey.

Elegant, romantic calligraphy by Paper EnvyLooping calligraphy is carried through to the place cards that sit atop the hand-painted polka dot plates on gold chargers (that are just a tiny bit 80s) and all together they create a stack of layered loveliness. And layers are what this shoot is all about – like honey sweetened coffee layered with creamy milk and foam the details are all multi-faceted, a little surprising and always sweet.
