100 Years of Wedding Dresses header

Wow, how wedding dresses have changed over the years. We love this styled shoot that showcases the different styles of wedding dresses in the last 100 years.

You will see that modern day wedding dresses have taken a lot of inspiration from years gone by, with current collections using a lot of lace and hand-sewn detailing to create exquisite designs with details reminiscent of bridal styles from the past.

Big thanks to the creative team and Noelle Kraft Photography for sharing these amazing pictures with us…

“The rich history of Edgewater Hall inspired our 100 Years of Wedding Dresses Shoot. We created 14 different wedding looks that showcase the beauty of the everyday woman, and blend together the history of Edgewater Hall with that of the wedding dresses.

“We worked with a beautiful collection of wedding dresses that ranged in fashion and style from the 1900s to modern times. One couldn’t help being taken back in time as each dress accentuated the uniqueness and individuality of their era.

“Much credit is to be extended to the locals involved in this shoot, including the four bridal and vintage boutiques located in Staten Island, as well as Noelle Kraft Photography and local production company Shadow and Sound. Shooting this project at the Edgewater Hall was the ‘pièce de résistance’, as it gave the shoot the grand, historic ambience of yesteryear it needed to be successful.”
