Sew in Love: An Heirloom Valentine’s Day Shoot at an Old Industrial Warehouse

Inspired by simpler times, the team at New Jersey’s Dovetail Vintage Rentals collaborated with photographer Jessica Oh to bring to life this creative concept of an heirloom Valentine’s Day wedding. Juxtaposed and enhanced against the stark backdrop of an old industrial warehouse space, delicate textures, warm colors, and cozy vintage pieces worked together to create a romantic, intimate setting. Bathed in the ambient glow of flickering candlelight, a reclaimed farm table was set with assorted milk-glass vases holding ranunculi, carnations, and tulips in shades of red, pink, and white. Hearkening back to the days when love letters were sent by post, a galvanized antique mailbox was transformed into a suspended centerpiece, out of which spilled a cascade of seeded eucalyptus leaves, candy-colored blooms, and old-timey valentines in hand-calligraphed envelopes. A subtle sewing theme was threaded throughout, with an antique Singer sewing machine on display and wooden spools scattered purposely here and there.
