This vintage Chicano shoot...

was a collaboration by artists and wedding professionals. We chose Helwig Winery as our venue because their Wine Cave has an old world design and feel. Kathleen, Helwig event coordinator, opened Davancy Chateau, a private residence, and the shoot came alive. 

Kristi designed with dark roses, pedals, calla lilies and candles, using red and black as the foundational colors in the vermilion-brown and tan tones of the wine cave. She styled the table and the stairs using all her own creativity, including the rose topiary. The rose napkins were her genius.

Crystal's hair and makeup were pure artistry. For the bridal portion, Jenny O. did a romantic loose curl in her hair and a soft makeup with poignant red lip, but for the getaway shots she converted Crystal's hair and makeup into a masterful vintage pinup.
