Vintage Galmour Wedding Inspiration : The Banker’s Daughter

Inspiration can lead you virtually anywhere, but with talent to boot, photographer, Brio Art by Katie Fears and creative styling + production, BRANDtabulous turned an idea into a work of art.
The collab between the fabulous Twin Cities’ vendors showed us that there is more to Minnesota weddings than cabins and hand pies. So, with that in mind, we invite you into the world of old money meets contemporary style with a slight nod to a Great Gatsby-flapper vibe. But, not to worry loves, you don’t need an invite to this luxurious ‘Daddy’s Bank’ soiree, all you need is a taste for all-things glamorous.

On a snow-filled day in May, 2013, the Westin Minneapolis was transformed from the historic Farmers & Mechanics Bank building built in 1941 to what we like to call, a breathtaking wedding shoot masterpiece. The original bank lobby—now home to hotel registration, a restaurant, and private dining rooms—features 34-foot ceilings, a grand marble staircase, original bank vaults (now wine storage), and wood-carved emblems signifying the leading industries of the World War II era, all served as a backdrop for a bank inspired soiree.  
The bride’s gorgeous vintage meets flapper inspired gown by Joynoelle sent us into a fashion frenzy overload and paired fabulously with a side swept hair-do and gorgeous lips by Laura Westrem, truly stuuuuunning! But, if we’re talking heavenly, then our focus is definitely on the exquisite ruffled wedding cake by The Buttercream Collection and gorgeous florals by Brown & Greene Floral. We can go on for days with each and every one of our obsessions with this shoot, but to let you explore into the imagination of these oh-so talented vendors, we will let the glamorous film speak for itself. enjoy…!
