As 2020 rolled in, Angela of An Event Lady Production along with Hannah of Southern Belle Photography dreamed of creating a shoot with a 1920’s old Hollywood vibe but with a fresh, modern twist. After finding the perfect historic venue in Winston-Salem, NC, they collaborated with an amazing team of vendors to create a vision of pure glamour.

The Millennium Center is every bride’s dream. Built in 1906, the Millennium Center was originally a post office before later becoming a federal building and eventually an event venue. Over the years, the Millennium’s historic charm has attracted celebrities (such as Oprah Winfrey, Jay Z, John Mayer, & Maya Angelo) and also been a location for many Hollywood films (like “Leatherheads” starring George Clooney and Renee Zellweger & “House of Cards” with Kathleen Turner and Tommy Lee Jones). The Millennium Center has a unique vintage elegance that fit the shoot’s Roaring 20’s/Great Gatsby glam feel to a T.

To execute their vision of a black & gold Old Hollywood wedding, Angela & Hannah brought on a team of incredible vendors. Model bridesmaids Emy & Sarah looked glamorous with black gowns by English’s Bridal and vintage themed feather fan’s to replace traditional wedding bouquets. Model bride Eden looked stunning in a beaded-top wedding gown from English’s with plenty of tulle around the base for a beautiful, flowing train. Groomsmen Abraham & Sebb joined model groom Jordy in smoking hand-rolled cigar’s in style at the Millennium’s bar, looking just as dapper in their tux’s as the Rat Pack.

Besides lavishly decorated art-deco inspired tables & a decadent cake by Wicked Sweet Cakes, this styled shoot boasts a full wedding party who would make even Cary Grant and Dorothy Dandridge jealous!

For an added “wow” factor, the shoot also included a hand-rolled cigar station by Amendola Family Cigars, a vintage Rolls Royce getaway car from Fantasy Limo, and a strolling champagne serving skirt for reception guests from Lily Jade Entertainment (complete with a server in a 1920’s flapper dress).

To complete the day, Eden & Jordy finished the shoot with romantic rooftop portraits as the sunset.
