Vintage Bridesmaids – a sneak peek

This photo shoot focusing on vintage bridesmaids, is something I’ve been mulling over for the last six months or so.  What fun to see it finally take place at the newly-restored Annie’s Bakery and Cafe last Friday.  My inspiration came during a visit to A Vintage Affair, where they have the most wonderful selection of 1950’s prom dresses in sorbet shades.  I love the idea of pairing these feminine gowns with shoes and accessories that are completely now.

Right off the bat I knew that Annie’s Bakery would make the perfect backdrop for this shoot, with it’s ice cream bar and antique, floral wallpaper.  Thank you to everyone at the bakery for accommodating us.
