First up for United With Love’s inspiration week is a little gem by Julie at Strawberry Milk Event Design Studio. Julie collaborated with her fellow vendors in the Annapolis and Eastern Shore area on a photo shoot entitled “Sweet Marie,” which focused on a modern day interpretation of Marie Antoinette. The photos by David Hartcorn Photography will be used for the Tidewater Inn’s brochure.
From Julie: The feel of the shoot was equal parts opulent elegance, glam and whimsy, complete with over the top lush centerpieces with ostrich feathers and hanging crystals. Antique crystal chandeliers gave the room’s powder blue, ivory and dusty pink color palette a warm glow. And, of course, no Marie Antoinette tribute would be complete without a little sweet indulgence.
One DIY element would be the cake. We took a plain white cake, added fresh soft pink roses left over from our centerpieces, along with some white fabric flowers (that happen to look very real). As a cake topper, we used a little white bird with an ostrich feather tail. This is made by an Etsy seller that we sell at Duchess of Devonshire. It gave the cake just enough punch while still being subtle and classic.
Strawberry Milk has a lot of cool props which we let our clients use, many of which are antique/vintage such as the silver vintage Moroccan sweetheart chairs, the antique birdcage, crystal candelabra on the dessert table. Other props of ours include the white peacock, the cakes, etc. The bride’s accessories, jewelry and headband are from Duchess of Devonshire.
