The timeless tales of Gone With The Wind, Romeo and Juliet and Wuthering Heights were the main inspiration behind this literary-themed style shoot. The idea of classic romance in novels was brought to the forefront with the James J Hill Library in downtown St Paul, Minnesota, used as the backdrop. Its stacks upon stacks of books paired with soft lighting from globe cafe lights and taper candles created a warm ambiance, while vintage furniture and the stencilled look on the cake and invitations suggested an old-timey feel such as that usually seen on a well used book. To top it all off, the bride was seen embracing a hoop skirt ball gown accented with vintage brooches; a look popularly fashioned in the 1800s.
