Modern Gatsby-Inspired Wedding Inspiration at the Anderson House in DC


Using minimal but intentional florals by Sweet Root Village, a gorgeous bridal suit from Australian designer Karen Willis Holmes, and a real couple that got married during quarantine (but never got to have a proper wedding) as our models, we created a modern wedding inspiration shoot that was focused on highlighting the timeless elegance of the Anderson House, a classic DC wedding venue. In keeping a minimal but authentic focus on design, architecture, and genuine emotions, we didn’t use a planner or stylist for this shoot but instead drew from the existing elements for simple but poignant photos.

The inspiration was drawn from the novel of The Great Gatsby, creating the feel of an opulent and carefree party in a breathtaking manor house, but our hope with the impeccably designed suit was that the bride would take the role of the Gatsby inspiration.

This styled shoot was recently featured on Magnolia Rouge, keep scrolling to see some favorite moments.
