"When two people meet, each one is changed by the other, so you've got two new people."
- John Steinbeck
I have always been enthralled with vintage, and there has always been something so innocent and everlasting about the Post World War 1 Era that has fascinated me.
In a time of great struggle, two things keep us going, hope and love.
When I mulled over photographs of brides and grooms of the 20s and 30s, the stoicism despite the beauty of the occasion always alarmed me. Photography was different and much less mobile but the meticulous attention to detail in this time when the photographic mechanism relied heavily of precision is also a reflection of the time in general. Between, the fine lace, beading, and netting, oozing bouquets, grandiose, table settings and the acute tailoring of men's suits, this tangible craftsmanship is something that I long for. It truly was a time where people built things that were made to last and appreciated for years to come.
Some inspiration for a modern bride with a vintage heart.
