Styled Shoot at the Bowery in West Palm Beach: Industrial Antique Glamour - Part One

Styled Shoot at the Bowery in West Palm Beach: Industrial Antique Glamour - Part One

Styled shoots are essentially small, mock events or weddings that allow several vendors to collaborate to creative something beautiful and/or innovative. The goal is often publication in industry blogs, but not always. 

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with several excellent vendors on a styled shoot at Bowery Palm Beach. The Bowery, located in CityPlace in West Palm Beach, is a restaurant/concert venue/event and wedding venue that has a ton of beautiful space.

Our shoot theme was "industrial antique glamour," which combined several trendy elements with classic styles. We started with our love of marble, rose gold, and geometric shapes. We knew that this combination was modern and on trend, but adding touches of silver and more intricate patterns added to the antique vibe.

The Bowery also features a lot of industrial elements, so it was an interesting combination that gives an elegant-meets-urban feel. While marble and rose gold are extremely popular, the bright florals and lace details keep that classic look that's timeless!

We started by getting the Bridal Party ready...

While everyone got ready, Amanda of Amanda Smith Photography was busy styling and taking photos of our other details.  The gorgeous blush and marble invitations by Cricket Printing and incredible bridal accessories by Champagne and Grit made for some fun photos!  The accessories were custom-designed for our shoot and added a touch of glam to the Bride's outfit.

Then it was time to get dressed! The classic lace dress, provided by Bacio Bacio Bridal, was a perfect "antique" touch to our industrial antique glamour theme.

The Bowery provided some exceptional food for our shoot as well.  From our Signature Cocktail to the Chateaubriand and scallops - it was all delicious!

Styled Shoot: The Brazilian Court

Styled Shoot: The Brazilian Court

Styled shoots are essentially small, mock events or weddings that allow several vendors to collaborate to creative something beautiful and/or innovative. The goal is often publication in industry blogs, but not always. 

I've wanted to do a styled shoot for a while now, and I couldn't think of a better location than The Brazilian Court.  I had been to their restaurant for dinner a year or two ago, and just thought it was so beautiful and intimate.

Once the venue was set, it was all about the theme, design and vendors.  Working with the florist/designer was so helpful in bringing our visions to life, as we really wanted to do something unique and uncommon.  We worked to create two looks: one bright, funky and unexpected, or what we deemed the "casual" look, and the other, the "formal" look - more high-end, antique, with champagne shades and luxurious.

I had a great time working with several local South Florida vendors to bring everything to life, and they all captured the day with their own individual expertise.

Our models, Alex and Will, were fantastic and on board with our vision - and very cooperative in the extreme Florida heat!

I really love this "first look" shot - they were so cute together!

Alex looked stunning in this Rosa Clara gown from Bacio Bacio Bridal Salon.

The casual, bright look was so much fun, and the flowers truly brought it to life. I was so happy with how this turned out! The designers at Xquisite Events are experts in designing exceptional tablescapes and florals.

I loved the invitations and paper story with just a splash of color! Beautiful work from VG Invites.

After the first concept was done, we broke for lunch and came back for the more formal shoot. Before that, Amanda fromAmanda Smith Photography took some location shots with Alex that turned out beautifully.

Onto the more formal, romantic look...

Many of the details were very fun and meaningful - from the silverware that came from one of the designer's grandmother's collection, to the champagne-soaked gummy bears, it was a creative table!

The cake from Sunshine Cake Design was perfect! The filigree details really added to the antique, luxurious feel of the formal look.

The Brazilian Court pool is such a cool little oasis!

Our handsome groom, Will. He was a champ and took as many pictures as we needed!

We walked around the property (and a little bit off of it too!) for some different shots of the couple. Such an incredible location!

I love this happy picture!

More beautiful flowers...

Cheers to a beautiful shoot with amazing people and vendors!
