A mysterious veil blurs the moment only slowly revealing wealth and beauty. The wealth of bygone eras and the beauty of today.

Ancient wood – lathed and adorned with stucco – shines with new splendor among the beautiful light while stone stairs and marble floors bathe in the glance of colorful blossoms.

Florist  Kiana Underwood von Tulipina and photographer  Corbin Gurkin created this exceptional shoot at a former train station in Oakland.

Extravagant robes by fantastic designer, futuristic hair styles and noticeable bridal styles merged beautifully with this abandoned place into a symbiosis of old and new.

Loud colors and opulent flower arrangements rounded out the scenery and showcased every detail perfectly.

Maybe it´s just some of the details that inspire future brides for their weddings. Nevertheless, it´s the complete artwork and the fascinating pictures shot by the wonderful artist  Corbin Gurkin we just can´t let go…
