Red and Ivory Vintage Wedding Style

It’s another gorgeous week of wedding inspiration here at Love Wed Bliss with this elegant red and ivory vintage wedding style shoot by Jim Vetter Photography. It seems you can’t go wrong when you combine classic Audrey Hepburn style with vintage accessories and sophisticated tableware. Infuse a pop of red with a beautiful rose bouquet and you’ve got yourself one stunning vintage look.

Red and Ivory Vintage Wedding Style

Photographer Jim shares the inspiration: I love Amy-Jo Tatum’s classic designs which harken back to Audrey Hepburn days. These styles just seems so well suited to the deco feel of the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley, California and it really turned out well with a great team of vendors. The ballroom set features the designs of Tamiko Garner of All Thing Simple and the lighting designs of DJ Jason Mitchell. They layered a contemporary finish onto the classic lines of the gorgeous Shattuck Ballroom. Laura Urbina and the rest of the Shattuck staff were a great pleasure to work with. The Bridal Suite settings were really driven by the beautiful interior designs of the suite provided by the Shattuck. If only every wedding day began in such a suite! The bedroom provided large windows and French doors by which to light our stunning bride. And of course the lavish king bed gave us the perfect way to complete the shoot.

Styling Details

From the photographer: Simplicity was key for us in designing this pretty Summer/Spring shoot. We wanted it to incorporate glitter and sequinned elements in a summery garden setting. Choosing three colors – blush, mint, and gold within the pastel family – we focused on delicate and elegant details accented with gold. We featured a real life couple who just had their one year anniversary and still looked at each other like the day they were married.

The table was set with a satin mint colored linen and topped with a sheer featuring shimmering strands of gold. It was anchored by a grand candelabra floral centerpiece incorporating spring blooms of blush and white roses, white hydrangeas, rich green succulents and dangling mosses. Simple mercury glass votives and blush glass vases sat alongside a couple of sweet paper maché birds. Simple gold chargers were the resting place for china featuring delicate floral pattern highlighted by gold cutlery, ivory floral napkins, and paper menu. Gold chivari chairs were adorned with delicate strands of satin, grosgrain, and sparkly ribbons to bring a decidedly whimsical and spring like quality to the setting. Our invitation suite which included invitations and RSVP cards, seating cards, paper menu, and table number was created using blush, gold, and pastel mints with a graceful floral design.

The bride donned an Allure gown with an asymmetrically rouched bodice and deep v neckline. To complete the look we pulled in a gold satin ribbon tied around her waist and topped it with a sparkling rhinestone bridal belt from Belts by Marital Bridals. Belt and veil were be found at LA Bridal Boutique.

Tropical Wedding Bliss

This wedding design was inspired by the vivid colors of tropical destinations, full of colorful blooms and handmade details. It is a fun mixture of items used in Caribbean and Mexican weddings, from the ‘papel picado’ invitations to the fun ‘Novia’ (bride) sign decorated by paper flowers. Pink shoes add a touch of the unexpected, and complement the bride’s lively makeup and playful hairstyle. Guests can be greeted with tropical drinks in a rainbow of colors, and sent home with pretty boxed favors thanking them for being a part of the lovely day.
 
As summer draws to a close, it’s easy to incorporate some of these lovely details into your day, by creating a few fun items by hand and using fun color palettes that evoke the mood of summer. This inspiration board is perfect for the fun couple who wants to infuse their wedding with a touch of the tropical, or who is adventurous enough to plan a destination wedding in a beautiful tropical setting.

Modern Whimsical Wedding in Black, White, Gold & Pink

Black and white and gold all over, with a touch of pink – what’s not to love about this fun color palette beautifully curated by the talented Haydee of Sweetest Celebrations. An elegant black tie wedding is elevated to new heights with subtle accents in gold, and a flash of hot pink brings an unexpected whimsical flair to the event.

The Inspiration:

The modern bride is someone who takes a classic and romantic gown with a full ruffled skirt and gives it new life with a fun organza flower. Classic stripes in black and white bring a modern feel to the event, from the drinks served under a circus like tent in stripes, to the fun boutonniere worn by the groom.

Gold flatware and plating treats guests like royalty, but the striped straws keep the event casual, while adding a touch of whimsy at the same time. Pink and gold are scattered throughout the wedding in unexpected places — the tiny flags on the straws, the monogram cake topper, and some fun balloons that can be used as photo props for the guests and bridal party. 

This inspiration board is the perfect combination of the modern and whimsical. It is for the modern, hip couple that wants to have fun at their wedding, while still providing their guests with a beautifully elegant experience.

Hollywood Glamour Wedding Inspiration

Hey lovelies! It’s that time again for some gorgeous wedding inspiration from the lovely Haydee from Sweetest Celebrations. Take it away Haydee!
 
In a day and age where brides are turning to the past for wedding inspiration, it is difficult to stand out in a sea of vintage weddings, full of rustic and natural details.  Fear not, you can still channel your vintage goddess, but in a much more glamorous way.  If your wedding is not the perfect excuse for dolling up and being as glamorous as can be, when else can you indulge in decadent details that evoke glamour at every turn? I created this inspiration board for the bride who wants to feel and look like a glamour queen on her wedding day.  These images evoke a subtle Hollywood Glamour mood that is perfect for the bride who wants to be surrounded in gold and shimmery details, and be the star of her event.
 

Hollywood Glamour Wedding Inspiration

A beautiful gown is a must, but it must be sleek and chic and overflowing with beautiful details, like this perfect sheath dress covered in gold beading with the drop-dead back detail, that leaves them breathless even as you walk away.  Keep the hair chic and elegant with a perfect updo highlighted with a sparkly vintage brooch, with makeup as effortless and flawless like those in the movies.  Set the tone for your wedding with this perfect invitation in gold, and carry out the same theme to your escort cards for the guest’s seating.  The cake is simple yet decadent, with gold piping and a sweet brooch detail to accent the top tier.  Gold chandeliers at your venue allow you to focus on a clean design for your table settings, highlighted with gold and silver and a touch of blue for subtle color.  A sparkly cocktail to welcome your guests kicks off the evening and is sure to enchant all who attend.
 
I hope more brides embrace the beauty of the past in their own unique way.  Look to the past for inspiration but be sure to make your wedding unique by adding personal touches that speak to your personal style.

LWB Welcomes Sweetest Celebrations {& Parisian Chic Inspiration}!

Hi lovelies! It’s a wonderful Thursday morning and I’m excited to announce our brand new guest blogger to join the LWB family –  lovely Haydee from Sweetest Celebrations. You’ll be pleased to note Haydee is not only obsessed with all things weddings, but she also just happens to be a wedding co-ordinator (handy girl to have around I say!)  Just like us, there’s nothing she loves more than immersing herself in some serious pretty – and lucky for us she will be sharing plenty of pretty inspiration on LWB every month. So, give a warm welcome to Haydee,  and enjoy her first gorgeous feature, then be sure to pop over to her pretty website to see how she can make your special day come to life!

Lately, I’ve been inspired by Paris – the city of romance, soft ruffles and glamorous chandeliers. I picture a wedding adorned with sweet details in shades of ivory and pink, accented with touches of black here and there. This inspiration board features a Parisian Chic wedding theme, with traditional items such as vintage teacups and upholstered wing back chairs balanced with modern touches like black crystal accents and pink ruffles. A nice finishing touch would be to have chandeliers everywhere – to cast a soft mood for the ceremony and then to also liven up the table decor on a smaller scale. French macaroons create the perfect finale adding another element of French elegance to your wedding theme.  I think this style of inspiration would add a touch of romance and glamour to any wedding.

We love beautiful bridal veils here at LWB, but when you combine it with breathtaking photography then you absolutely have us melting at the knees! In our Breathtaking Bridal Veils #1 we focused on the bride modelling her stunning veil. However this time, we decided it was time to show off some amazing shots of couples which featured the wedding veil. The end result…, well, utterly romantic would have to be a understatement!
