Krista previously introduced you to Ginger’s Closet as a potential bridal gown resource to get once-loved luxury gowns with the likes of Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Romona Keveza, Rivini, Kenneth Pool, Amsale, Lazaro and many more. Not only is it a fabulous eco-friendly choice, but it’s a chance for brides to get their dream dress at an affordable cost.
Today, the ladies at Ginger’s Closet wanted to share with you a styled shoot in a fresh delicious color palette of coral and chartreuse. It took me hours putting the images together because I spent most of the time wishing I could fit it all in. The photos by Elizabeth Kaye are just that, perfect. The tablescape is ga-ga-gorgeous and the dresses/styling is beyond words. Pretty sure you’ll agree with Ginger’s Closet’s tagline because it’s just so fitting – consignment never looked so good.
From the Lynzie + Patricia of Ginger’s Closet:
Our theme was “Fresh Spring Couture”, and our shoot was inspired by the beautiful bridal gowns carried in our store. The once worn and sample designer gowns were the stars of the shoot, rife with couture elements such as lace, embroidered beading, floral embellishments and stunning fabric detailing and draping.
In keeping with our fashion forward gowns, we went with a colour palette that is very current including coral and chartreuse. We were fortunate to shoot in the incredible and historical Berkeley Church Field House where floor to ceiling windows flooded the space with natural light- the main ingredient for our photographer Elizabeth Kaye’s stunning artistry. We asked Lisa at De Rose Designs to create the most opulent spring inspired florals that were slightly outside the box. Lisa’s floral runner, chair swags and floral pillow added an air of luscious whimsy to the fresh and colourful tablescape. Versace dinnerware, hammered metal pod vases and flatware, an orchid-adorned bust, taper candles and barely there ghost chairs completed the look.
Our brides, modeling gowns by Vera Wang, Amsale, Romona Keveza, Kenneth Pool, Christos and Melissa Sweet, were accessorized in pieces by Haute Bride, Sara Gabriel, Desla, Stella and Dot and Angela Mikhail. Each look had a very distinct and different air than the next showing the personality of each gown and the bride who wears it.
At Ginger’s, our goal is to illuminate the potential in each gown and help brides not only see its beauty, but also envision what it can become. Spring, consistently a symbol of new life, was the perfect season for this shoot as we brought new life to once loved gowns and styled them with fresh creative vision. The creative “Fresh Spring Couture” shoot was an experience of talent, surprise, beauty and positive energy which is exactly what you will find in Ginger’s Closet.
