This album had an ingenious approach to what we refer to as ‘classic’. One would consider something as ‘classic’ when it has outperformed continuous changes brought upon by time – that’s why ‘classic’ is synonymous to ‘timeless’. This styled shoot looked classic in all sense but the addition of clock pieces was a creative and literal irony to the ‘timeless’ look that it achieved. Witty.
Here is what the planner of this shoot had to say about the decor and style
The day remains in a bride and grooms memory for the rest of their lives. Weddings are timeless, classic and elegant and this inspired You’re The Bride to design a setting that captured this look using clocks to tie it all together. We loved the idea of a “timeless” wedding in a place filled with history and character so we used the Library at Long Acre House in Farmington, Michigan. The color palette was inspired by the tone of the library and the fact that we wanted a classic and clean look. The burgundy accented well with the wooden fixtures, and the gold tones finished the look of elegance to the room. Merri-Craft Florist created a beautiful centerpiece arrangement of white roses, burgundy mums and grapes, italian ruscus and ivy in a chest with a clock.
We used elements of “time” by embellishing the burgundy napkins with miniature clocks that were set on bread and butter plates. Chocolate kisses wrapped in gold foil and displayed in gold organza favor bags were a sweet treat! Clear gold beaded charger plates, gold rimmed stemware and flatware provided by Event Source enhanced the elegance of the table scape. We placed round clock inspired menu cards under each charger and place cards at each setting designed by Senor and Senora. We kept the natural beauty of the wood table but chose to add a splash of color by adding a burgundy table runner and gold ribbon. A strand of timeless pearls was weaved along the runner to soften the look which also included a old antique pocket watch. Gold taper candles on crystal holders and votives lent a romantic feel to the occasion. A timeline of the evening’s events was featured in a gold frame. A celebratory bottle of wine awaits to be opened for the couple to toast their nuptials. The three-tiered round white cake with burgundy ribbon on each layer was presented on a gold stand placed on a satin burgundy linen provided by Your Event Party.
