Philly Cake Maker

Styled Shoot :: Mixed Metals Geometric Inspiration

During this absolutely frigid cold spell we’ve been having I thought it was appropriate to share one of our favorite shoots from last winter with Alexandra Whitney Photography. Shot at Maggpie Vintage Rentals, this shoot came together with an amazing team of vendors who were such troopers through the frigid temps. Check out these colorful DIY's!

SK created the large statement wall with various-sized canvases, painter’s tape, and a perfect palette of paint. We used it as a focal point behind our table, but it would also be a fun option for a photo booth or ceremony backdrop.

My only request to the talented ladies of Falls Flowers was to include magnolia leaves. I love the way the back of magnolia leaves look coppery, fitting nicely with our 'mixed metal' theme. Don't you love the way Falls Flowers made such a statement with them on the back of the chairs?! To top it off, the centerpieces they created for the table were stunning, spilling over the edge of the compotes and onto the table.

For the place settings, we DIY’d hammered copper placemats. The hours we spent hammering away on them paid off because they are still one of my favorite elements of the table. They add such depth! LoveLeigh Invitations created these fun menus that fit right into the the salad plates. I’m all about finding new ways to display old classics.

Philly Cake Maker masterfully created the geometric cakes, which we adorned with flowers and a handmade geometric topper. The geometric trinkets hanging above the cake table were crafted by soldering steel sticks cut at various sizes together, then spray painting them with different metallic finishes.

We are so grateful for the team of vendors that braved the frigid temps and came out to pull this shoot together!
