1920s flapper wedding: Christina + Kyle

Categories   Real Weddings

custom made feather fans

The 1920s speakeasy culture is always one of our faves to see recreated. Feathers, rhinestones, gold accents, rich colors, drinks flowing… it’s glamorous. What’s not to love about having your closest friends and family dress in the free spirit fashion of flappers with custom made feather fans to keep cool. Christina is not only a dear friend, she’s a modern day flapper with killer style! And one of our favorite bits about her wedding – she found her photographer & videographer by bidding for them in our vendor section!

Christina + Kyle run a rad design studio, Thompson & Partners, so obviously they were excited to design all their printed goods.

Centerpieces were a combination of vintage medicine bottles collected over the years and wine/champagne bottles spray painted with matte gold and glitter, filled with various purple and white flowers.

Great tip from Christina: Ask your bridesmaids to remind you throughout the planning process and wedding day that everything is perfect even if it doesn’t look exactly how you imagined it would be. The things that go differently than planned often make the most memorable stories.

first dance

Our good friend Holly Mirkheshti flew in from Atlanta to sing jazz standards during the reception. Our first dance was “Cheek to Cheek” by Fred Astaire, choreographed by our dear friend Daniel Ponickly inspired by the 1920’s dance style “The Peabody”.

And now for their featurette with a little cinema inspiration from “The Artist.”

"The Most Perfect Wedding Week-end" is what so many were calling your celebration of love & life, Christina & Kyle! A day has not gone by since that fabulous feather-festooned festival of vows, colors, dancing & music that I haven't rewound the images in my mind ! What a memorable event "produced" by two of the most creative people I know. As they say, "Thanks for the memories!" What a blessing to be part of it all. I love you both so much!!

TONY HILL on Jan 2, 2013

Wonderful use of ostrich feathers. Is the fan a genuine antique from the theme period? Very nice

Christina Landers Thompson on Feb 19, 2013

Thanks for all the lovely comments! It was truly the most perfect and magical day! My dress is a vintage inspired Jenny Packham purchased at Panache Bridal in Beverly Hills. I purchased the ostrich feather fans on Etsy : )
