I could not be more thrilled to bring you part two of Matthew Ree & Debbie Hemingway’s epic trip to Havana, Cuba. (Catch up on part 1 here!) This duo showcased two stunning dresses against an old-world façade that Havana is known the world over for. With vintage cars, delightful calligraphy, a beautiful place setting, and images from the streets of Havana, this wedding inspiration shoot is a definite step back in time and a peek at one of the hottest new destinations for American brides!
From Matthew Ree – “We were drawn to the patina colors, amazing textures, patterned tiles, narrow lanes and mysterious dilapidated stairwells inside of old but beautifully faded buildings. The layers of distressed colorful and chipping paint everywhere makes Havana an intoxicating backdrop to style a photo shoot.”
Be sure to see part one of this journey behind the doors of Havana here!
