A Stylish Vintage Wedding Photo Shoot in Suffolk

Sharon Royster grew up surrounded by antiques and developed an attraction to anything vintage. So, the owner of Chic Unique Vintage Rentals & Events adored creating a quintessentially Southern photo shoot with elements from her Suffolk shop that reflected her Virginia roots.



“This shoot was very near and dear to me because everyone involved is from the Suffolk area,” Royster says. “I wanted to showcase the talented creatives in Suffolk so that brides-to-be could see that it is a great place to get married. We have cool venues, talented vendors and everything you could imagine to create a dream wedding.”

Royster says she continues to meet modern couples in love with a vintage look, whether it’s in the small details or a fullscale, vintage-themed wedding.




"Vintage never goes out of style,” Royster says. “Mixing the past with the present creates a wow factor that’s hard to beat. I am so pleased to meet and work with couples who share my love for it and want to use it at their weddings.”
