Old Hollywood Glam Styled Shoot

This photo-shoot was inspired by a mutual love of Old Hollywood Glamour. The historic Ragland Mansion in Petersburg, Virginia was the backdrop for the shoot. This elegant antebellum Italianate built in the 1850’s later became home to the family of Joseph Cotton the American film, stage and television actor, and is Petersburg’s best kept secret. Hair and makeup styling was inspired by the film actress Rita Hayworth. Dayna Cobb Makeup Design transformed the beautiful model, Kelsey Pape, into a screen legend with a long finger wave, false eyelashes and MAC “Diva” lipstick. Keta Jackson of a Dezinerz Edge created the almond shaped gel enhanced look for Kelsey’s nails. They were finished with OPI’s “I Theodore You” from the “Oz the Great and Powerful” collection. A gold foil stripe was added to create a look of elegance. The bracelet and earrings were made by hand by McKinsey Bamber Jewelry. Each leaf is cut from brass, hammered by hand, and beaded together with round rose quartz stones. Kelsey’s show stopping, oyster colored, vintage inspired Casablanca dress was generously provided by Bliss Bridal Boutique. The beaded embellishments and trumpet silhouette are a perfect match for the Old Hollywood theme. The vintage gold clutch is the photographer’s own, handed down from her mother. The two tiered and timeless almond fondant cake with a band of gold was created by RockStar confections and embellished with a single peach rose. The uniquely beautiful bouquet was designed by NicolaFlora. Nicole combined heart shaped pink anthurium, eucalyptus, white orchid, pink and peach roses and gold accents to create an unforgettable, one of a kind bouquet for the occasion. Take a step back in time with the photos below, and be sure to pin your favorite vintage-inspired details!
