This collaboration was a dream come true as I got to work with two incredible local Lancaster County vendors! The photographer, Alyssa Christine Photography is a favorite of mine and I get excited when we have the chance to work together on an event! The florist, Sarah of Hemlock and Hellebore is a new favorite and she did an outstanding job with the floral arrangements for this shoot!
Sarah is the one who had the original vision for this vintage inspired collaboration. Beautifully, Sarah collected this true vintage silk dress from her mother who had initially found it. Almost like a secret from time past, this gorgeous dress revives and dates back to those roaring 1920s, which was a decade like no other.
Glamorous living contrasted against the rest of society, but gave way to an entirely unique era of style and beautiful things. Splurging and spending money on the frivolous things in life was at an all-time high for those who could afford to “have fun” and “drop money” whenever and wherever they pleased.
Inspired by the era of this dress, Sarah dreamed up a vision of recreating a modernized vintage moment. For a few hours, the four of us (model, photographer, florist, and stylist) traveled back and enjoyed a glimpse of those “big money” days, where the glitz and glam lifestyle was sophisticated in appearance, but flamboyant in action.
We put our creative minds together, and this is the vintage beauty that emerged. I hope you enjoy this travel back to older times as much as we did in creating it for you!
