5 Styles for an Old Hollywood Glamour Wedding

Posted September 27, 2012 | 4 Comments

Brides: if you’re considering an Old Hollywood Glamour Wedding theme, don’t miss today’s post! We’ve rounded up five of our favorite hot new styles by the lovely Jesse Ciani to inspire your Old Hollywood Glamour Wedding theme. This collection + shoot – named Cirque de L’Amour – was created by a team of experts. Jessica collaborated with Katherine Weston of Glory Photo, hairstylist Ling Chan, makeup artist Sherry Vang, set designer and stylist Sara Barr, and beautiful models (Olivia Ashcroft, Valecia Jasmyne, and Jamie Ann Safran) to launch this stunning new brand of elegant accessories to tie into this classic wedding theme. Read on to see our five hand-picked favorites after the jump!

Old Hollywood Glamour Wedding

Jessica tells us, “The shoot took place on Sunday, July 29, at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California. My initial inspiration for the shoot was old Hollywood glamour. I wanted the models to look chic, sophisticated, and elegant as the old Hollywood stars – but in a fun atmosphere. I came up with the idea of the circus theme when my little one turned one this past spring (and we celebrated his birthday with a circus theme smash cake photo session). I was immediately reminded of the movie Water for Elephants. My set designer, Sara Barr, was amazing: she made all the circus props for our Cirque de L’Amour. I was especially impressed with the knife throwing board she made. With Ling, our hair stylist, and Sherry, our Make-up Artist, the look I envisioned came to life. We had an amazing time with this shoot and I’m looking forward to doing many more with this amazing team.”

1. Marcelle

We begin the showcase with Jesse’s own personal favorite from the collection. Marcelle is a vintage-inspired tulle bandeau with a floral beaded trim, crystals, and a silk chiffon flower embellished with Swarovski crystals.

2. Bridgette

Bridgette is my hand-picked favorite: it is elegant with a modern feel and features crystals and pearls atop an embroidered headband. Love.

3. Adele

The Adele has double beaded roses atop a metal headband with a silver embroidered trim. The center of each rose features a Swarovski crystal, perfect for a little sparkle down the aisle.

4. Eloise

Two hand cut, hand sculpted blooms together create this hair flower fascinator, embellished with Swarovski crystals and mounted on an easy-to-wear silver metal headband.
