1960s bridesmaid luncheon shoot

categories Bridesmaids, Cocktail + Dinner Parties

southern charm bridesmaid luncheon

Ok, so remember last week when we shared a bohemian styled shoot that was inspired by The Princess Bride? Coordinator, Ashton Events and photographer, Jordan Weiland were also inspired by a film when they came up with the concept for this 1960s shoot. Without us telling you, can you guess what it was? We’ll let Jordan dish the deets.

I was talking with a friend about how fun a styled shoot would be inspired by the movie, The Help and my wheels just kept turning. I met with Laura Helm, the coordinator for this shoot, and she took the idea and ran with it. She also thought it would be fun to do it as a bridal luncheon instead of a reception inspiration just for something different for the summer. Plus the look correlates really well with the bridge lunches and pool deck scene in the movie. All of our vendors did an AMAZING job of making this shoot even better than what I could have hoped for. It was a really fun collaboration.

Such a great idea to use vintage playing cards as escort cards.

With the same gold marker they used to write on the escort cards, they personalized each placemat.

No luncheon with your bridesmaids is complete without a fancy bar cart.

Classy Camilyn Beth dresses. Can’t decide if we like this one better in white or blue. The blue with those sunshine daisy earrings is adorable. Definitely bridesmaid material. The white, perfect for a chic bride going for a little vintage look. Love ’em!
