Brides are embracing vintage designs and gowns more than ever, and with websites like Gossamer Vintage, they’re able to find gems without having to hunt for months and months. Emme from Gossamer Vintage has worked over the past year to style her gowns to show brides how lovely vintage gowns can be.

Here’s more from Emme on her inspiration for this shoot:

It’s unusual see a bride in an antique Edwardian gown, so Laura and I decided to do a shoot for it in a private garden in DC. We wanted to create an option for brides who otherwise might not have thought of wearing an older gown for her wedding day. We loved the unique textures of the gown and paired it with an antique wax crown; the venue was the perfect setting to complement the mood.

The bottom shot is my favorite. The texture of the dress, the off-white, the touch of black, what a lovely gown!

Featured Modern, Minimal Wedding with Jewel Tone Palette

We don't often see the combination of a modern, minimalist style paired with a deep jewel tone palette, and we hope that this inspires plenty of brides to play around with a similar color combination!
