This is the second collaboration with most of the vendors listed and provides an outlet for showcasing our best designs and creativity. Not only was this truly a stunning collaboration of some of the best, as well as lesser known, talent in the Twin Cities, there is an engagement story to go with it.

When it came time to recruit models for our shoot, Molly contacted her childhood friend, Brian, and asked if him and his girlfriend, Jay, would be available and interested in the opportunity. As fate would have it, Brian shared with her that he had just finished a custom designed ring and was planning to propose to Jay, but needed to creative way to do so. It was meant to be.

So on one of the most beautiful Fall days we could have asked for and just as we were getting ready to start shooting, Molly realized that our bride didn’t have a ring! — “Does anyone have a ring we can use?!,” She panicked — my acting was mediocre at best, but it worked. “I have one,” Brian chimed in and got down on one knee. The rest is history; however, thoroughly documented. Jay and Brian were married in Stillwater on July 13, 2012. Truly a unique engagement story!

Industrial Romance Inspiration Shoot by Zlata Modeen Photography

24 May

Where do you start when searching for inspiration for your wedding?  You can pull inspiration from objects around you that you adore.   This inspiration shoot by Zlata Modeen Photography is a great example of that concept.  The styler and coordinator of this photoshoot, Carly of Girl Friday, found inspiration in her favorite black and cream taper candles and The Vintage Type’s warehouse location.  All the elements from the unique umbrella chandelier to the pretty flowers in a soft color palette to the contrasting black and white details came together beautifully for this industrial romance wedding inspiration shoot.unique umbrella chandelier white pink yellow romantic wedding bouquet anemone rose gray black white yellow wedding invitation polka dot black white gray gold glam wedding attire black ruffle glam bridesmaid dresses personalized wedding chair sign ribbon bow green black white rustic wedding boutonniere industrial romance wedding inspiration shoot romantic industrial warehouse urban wedding creative umbrella chandelier wedding decor industrial modern umbrella chandelier modern vintage romantic wedding flowers decor pink yellow black white romantic wedding centerpiece anemone wedding bouquet centerpiece flowers vintage china black white wedding menu calligraphy vintage black white gold china elegant wedding menu calligraphy industrial romance wedding inspiration industrial romance wedding inspiration industrial romance wedding bride groom dessert buffet vintage wood table industrial wedding black white stripe dessert buffet wedding decor black white stripe dessert buffet wedding decor bride groom walking down path
Some Details from Carly of Girl Friday, the Styler and Coordinator: Our inspiration came from my favorite black and cream tapers from Five Stripes 
and the home of The Vintage Type–a historic hardwood milling warehouse on Mississippi River bluffs.  The umbrella installation was created for this shoot.  Diane, owner of The Vintage Type, painted the umbrella ceilings with gold spray paint,
punched holes with grommets and threaded through a cord with a bare Edison bulb.  It is a rentable installation.
