Let’s all take a deep breath, pop open some pretty pink bubbly and welcome 2012 in style. While you’ve been enjoying the holidays, we’ve been sneaking in some work time to make sure the new year is an unforgettable one for you. Gorgeous weddings, engagements, inspirational shoots and tutorials await! Shall we mosey into the new year with a little vintage Hollywood glam?
We’re loving those sweet Mr & Mrs paddle signs designed by Little Retreats. The gold accent border adds the perfect touch of glam to such an elegant black & white invitation suite designed by Jen Simpson Design.
Loving the pattern and textures in their gorgeous Mr. & Mrs. banner handcrafted by Courtney of Joyful Joyful Designs. Cute idea to drape above the intimate sweetheart table.
The umbrellas? We’re dying over those too! Everything in this shoot is so thought out and executed beautifully. From the vintage pieces to antique mirror trays used as platters for the dessert bar, umbrellas hung on string lights taking the place of chandeliers, and gold tinged mercury glass – stunning.
We were so excited to hear that many of the vases and platters in the shoot consisted of jars and old glass vases that were painted or treated to give it a vintage look (very budget-friendly).
From the fabulous stylist:
Originally inspired by the modern Hollywood city scape, we arranged a variety of different sizes and shapes in matte black, ivory, clear and gold to resemble the eclectic mix of structures. They were paired with a mix of gorgeous ivory flowers. A dessert table is a must at weddings nowadays. It gives guests options making it fun rather than the traditional slice of cake. Miso from Miso Bakes slaved over a gorgeous setup of cakepops, sugar cookies, cupcakes and chocolate truffles. She also created the simply stunning black and ivory cake. We secured an ivory backdrop with a black raindrop beaded curtain in front to add that touch of glam!
Now that they’ve shared their secrets, who’s thinking of having a vintage glam themed wedding?
