Philadelphia Elegance: Stunning Styled Shoot in the city of Brotherly Love

Regal, luxurious, high-style, elegant, alluring, sensual – the list of words that comes to mind when exploring this stunning styled shoot goes on and on, just like the amount of inspiration you will find tucked within its many seamlessly composed layers.

Featuring the work of multiple MunaLuchi Coterie members, including photography by Sheronda Seawright, floral & decor by Event Loft, makeup artistry by Sheena Marie Makeup Artistry, cake by Desserts By Dana, and jewelry & headpieces by Headpiece Heaven (view the entire vendor list below).

“Our luxurious shoot has many elegant [elements] out from the eye-catching sweetheart table coupled with mirrored columns and soft candlelight accents to the illusion of a lovely floating floral cake. Our model bride is adorned in four stunning looks while the groom (not to be outdone) also changes into three stylish looks. Garnished with lovely headpieces with each change to the jewelry our stunning couple definitely makes a statement with each outfit change.”

“When I start the process of brainstorming for design ideas, I began with the room and colors that stand out and are more prominent without over-saturation. Drexelbrook is a hidden gem in the Philadelphia area with amazing ballrooms. The carpets served as the main inspiration for the design. Grey paired with white created the right balance while utilizing mirror accents to help bring everything together”

“In a sea of mundane fashion where wedding style is rudimentary and uniform, we wanted to flip the idea of love on its head and create an Avante Garde love story where freedom of expression was celebrated through silhouette and shape. Each gown was chosen with the intent to celebrate the idea of opulent infatuation and its evolution. Our bride is the same but living through four different stages of life because love changes but feels the same every time you say “I do.”

~ James R. Sanders Fashion Styling

“The hair inspirations all had individual personalities that were incorporated into the dress and makeup designs. The natural beauty is free-spirited and delicate with pearl and bling compliments. The natural beauty is simplistic with a playful charm. The long ponytail with the crown gave royal vibes for a Queen. The ruffle dress inspired by Sex In the City which the hair complimented by a sleek bun to show off the brides gorgeous facial structure and headpiece. The sheer dress with sleeves was inspired by classic glam which has dramatic hair and remains classic for years to come in photos.”

“There’s no question that Pat McGrath is a great inspiration to many makeup artists in the industry. Her use of vivid color and effervescent looks helped influence the makeup for this styled shoot and also prompted creativity to push the boundaries for traditional bridal makeup. A bold pink eye and blush cheek, dewy skin, and nude matte-lip paired with the soft, romantic ballgown by Lillie Couture completed that whimsical look. Smokey eyes were the theme for the remaining bridal glam to bring out the ornate opulence in each dress. Intense eyes and glossy nude and bright pink lips helped tie it all together to achieve the overall look of regality and luxury. “
