Little Wed Riding Hood: A Styled Shoot


Sometimes when we think of a fairytale wedding, we might envision touches of Cinderella’s castle or shades of Belle in the ballroom. In designing this styled shoot, however, we at Custom Love Gifts, Events, & Prints decided to take things just a little more literally!

Beautifully photographed by Star Noir Studio (and captured on video by Pop Videography), this shoot is a celebration of all things red–strawberries, roses, and romance–with a distinctive nod to the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood reimagined as a modern day love story. With flawless hair and makeup from Southern Sirens, Heidi becomes the storybook character as her signature red cape perfectly accents Alfred Angelo‘s dazzling knee-length wedding gown in which she weds Kirk, our own imagined Prince.

The Historic Ramsey House provides a dream backdrop to create the enchanted atmosphere we envisioned, the effect of which is only heightened by tables and chairs from Anderson Rentals, not to mention Melissa Timm Designs‘s immaculate floral arrangements. Even Zorro, the Siberian Husky, as our Big Bad Wolf is an essential component of our vignette–and what a big smile he has!

For any bride considering a storybook theme for her wedding, The Pink Bride‘s Andrea has a little advice: “Add a classy edge to any theme wedding by opting for subtle nods to the theme that leave room for imagination. Rather than translating your theme wedding literally, hint at it by hiding the details in timeless accents guests will enjoy spotting throughout the evening. Have fun with it – and be sure to make it unique to you.” And we couldn’t agree more! Incorporate the elements you want, tell the story of your love, and embrace the magic of your fairytale day. Celebrate what big hearts you have, all the better to love one another with.
