Shades of turquoise weave through this shoot from the bride and groom’s accessories to vintage furniture rentals. Mama Sweet and Company created an adorable and comfy styled seating area that tied in beautifully with the 50’s inspired sweetheart table made to resemble a diner booth. Cakes by Carissa designed a one-of-a-kind geometric turquoise wedding cake.
Simple and classic flower arrangements made from baby’s breath and roses in blush pink and white with the slightest touch of blue helped bring this color scheme full circle. The bride’s kissing ball was studded with roses and similar versions were also made as chair decor to tie in this romantic vintage look. Photographed by Kelly Anne Photography this shoot was as fun and lovely as can be!
From the photographer:
This 1950’s brunch inspiration shoot is perfect for couples with a deep love for the beauty of the past. Young hearts with old souls, or older couples seeking that feel of nostalgia. The elements that make up this styled shoot are also perfect for couples looking for a design blueprint of how to style their smaller, more intimate event without skimping on the decor they really want. Sometimes a beautiful estate table and some personalized decor is all you need for the perfect celebration.
For our bride, we chose an above the knee sweetheart dress with a blue sash to compliment her blue wedding shoes. Our groom especially dressed for the era with suspenders, a bow tie, vintage cap and blue shoes as well.
To create a truly nostalgic ambiance, think vintage furniture and decor rentals. To give your wedding design an even more personal touch, see if you or your family members have anything reminiscent of this time period to incorporate into your decor. Serving dishes, dinnerware and tablescape items are one of the easiest and cost-effective ways to emulate a desired look. Consider using vintage CorningWare, timers and a piece of vintage furniture to serve your wedding food and cake off of. Another must-have is this antique car, perfect for either your getaway or just for photo opportunities.
To recreate this look, scout out a couple key pieces that are true to the era – whether for seating, decor or serving food or drinks. You don’t have to go overboard. The details are what is going to set the tone!
We would recommend a bellini with your choice of fruit as it paired nicely with our breakfast menu. Another great option would be mimosas. To kick the theme up a notch, ask your attendees to come in 50’s attire. Either have your DJ create a 1950’s wedding playlist for guests to dance to, or create one yourself for a smaller function.
Thanks for stopping by!
