When A Classic Party Rental expanded their inventory this past year, Chung Chow, Event Specialist and Social Media Coordinator for A Classic, thought this presented the perfect opportunity to showcase their new goods in a style shoot that demonstrated how you can achieve two different takes on modern romance with their fabulous, new rentals.

Chung wasted no time in planning what resulted in two breathtaking visions, staged at The Ritz Charles’ gorgeous Garden Pavilion in Indianapolis. Her goal? To show clients how to piece together the company’s classics with modern pieces using A Classic Party Rental’s stunning new linens, chairs, bar stools, glassware and flatware.

Partnering with Sophia’s Bridal, Meg Catherine Flowers, and Cory and Jackie Photography, Chung envisioned two bridal looks and a neutral, outdoor backdrop. Graced by soft hues, gorgeous peonies, ranunculus and roses, each look featured the new Vineyard crossback chairs and Panama linens. All we can say is: Brace yourselves for some major pretty!


This airy and romantic look pairs real, blank slate appeal with modern, on-trend touches. Chung draped the tables in A Classic’s charcoal and natural Panama linens and added Vineyard crossback chairs, delicate, stemless wine glasses, Elexa flatware and versatile white china—all rentable at A Classic. Candles provided by Meg Catherine Flowers added a delicate touch, while slate West Elm chargers kept the look cool, clean and modern. Other perfectly modern details included acrylic menus and marble place cards by N Rhodes Designs.


The second look shares the same overall neutral palette featuring ivory Panama and simple, beige polyester napkins. Pops of color not only brightened the look and feel but allowed the centerpiece to truly take centerstage in the design. White, square plates provided a modern edge and Vineyard crossback chairs and barstools were a perfect match for the outdoor setting.



The Look

What’s better than one gown? Two! Chung chose a traditional strapless ball gown and a trendier lace, deep v-neck dress from Sophia’s Bridal. Desiring an overall simple look, makeup was kept light and paired with a messy updo for the ball gown look and slightly deepened for the more sultry second ensemble.
