The Parkside Mansion in Denver, Colorado sets the backdrop for this romantic 1920s-inspired shoot. When the 2013 release of The Great Gatsby was just around the corner, Colorado-based blog, One Hitched Lane, brought A Vintage Affair Rentals, Tess Pace Photography, Bare Root Flora, and several other Colorado wedding professionals together to bring the vision of this shoot to life.
View the entirety of this shoot in the gallery here, all captured by the brilliant Tess Pace Photography.
From Bare Root Flora:
We wanted a soft, romantic look to the florals, and texture is one of our signature elements. So we paired gorgeous peonies, dahlia, roses and ranunculus with lots of lush and textural eucalyptus, camellia, and olive foliage, and privet and pepper berries. Anemone, veronica, Queen Anne's lace, and scabiosa gave the pieces the loose, draped feel we were going for.
From Jessica at A Vintage Affair Events & Rentals:
The 1920s were a golden age in American history and the parties of the Jazz Age, as the era is known, were glamorous. I chose a unique color scheme of green, pink, gold, and ivory for the shoot because I felt it captured the luxe and romanticism of the Jazz Age - with a modern twist. From there, it was all in the details: flowing drinks (even under Prohibition!), dramatic bow ties, extravagant hats and headpieces, vintage cars, soft & romantic flowers, letterpress invitations, fantastic dresses, flapper-style hair, whiskey tables, and more.
