If you’re reading this post, chances are you are a fellow “vintage-phile.” And for that, you have become one of our new best friends – hope you like martinis! But it also probably means that you are a lover of history as well. Lucky for us, history isn’t something you just learn about in school or watch reenacted on TV and in movies. It can be something you actually experience. OK, no, we have not figured out how to travel back in time. Trust if that happens, you probably won’t be hearing from us for a very long time. However, you can visit historical sites that provide a glimpse into another period. We can’t tell you how many times we’ve been shamed for crying because of the connection we felt at certain places (Versailles, we’re looking at you!).
We would feel slightly embarrassed (emphasis on “slightly”), but it turns out, we’re not the only ones who have felt something similar. So maybe they didn’t start crying. However, our very talented friend, Lynsey Lue, felt a lightning strike of inspiration when she walked into the Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit. And when you have something beautifully historic at your disposal, why not add a dose of romance to really bring ‘er home. Perhaps this “Vintage Love at the Historic Fort Wayne” styled shoot will have you feeling some type of way as well.
According to Lynsey, “walking onto the property of the Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit is literally walking into the past. Although the fort never saw battle, it housed many walks of lives throughout the years. The second I saw the fort, I knew I had to do a shoot here. Designed for battle, I instantly saw beauty and love. The history and buildings captivated me from the very beginning.”
