Great Gatsby styled wedding shoot at the Mining Exchange!

Art Déco Great Gatsby wedding at the Mining Exchange

Last week I did an Art Déco/Great Gatsby styled wedding shoot at the Windham Grand Mining Exchange in downtown Colorado Springs. The purpose was to show off the Mining Exchange’s elegant new ballroom, the Gold Room, in the gorgeous Art Déco era building adjacent to the main hotel. What a fun day! Our model, Inda, drove over 100 miles to be the “bride”, and the efforts of many wedding professionals all working together made this shoot a huge success. I love the results! I took my visual inspiration from Baz Luhrmann’s “Great Gatsby”. Everything came together just beautifully. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy!

The Mining Exchange has so many options for a wedding! This empty ballroom was a perfect spot for a dramatic wedding portrait. I love the tall windows and high ceilings!

I love how this necklace drops elegantly to the back instead of the front. Gorgeous!

There was another table set up with pink linens and crystal accents. So pretty.

The large glass disk supported by votives is genius. What a great way to show off a dramatic tablescape!

The headband that Inda is wearing is mine, and it’s a geniune piece from the 1920s. I’ve had it for years. Imagine a flapper wearing it back in the day, what a fun thought! Makeup by Rachel Barker, hair by Paige Hoover at Hotheads Studio.

There is a beautiful, antique Austrian piano in the lobby of the Mining Exchange. How could I not use it for a wedding portrait?

The Art Déco style pavé earrings from Bridal Elegance were a nice touch.

One of our last shots of the day. Inda is very photogenic, and so is the Mining Exchange! What a great place for a wedding!
