Poppy Red and Marigold Vintage Glam Wedding Theme

Welcome back to another week in wedding-land! And what better day than a Monday to shower you all with some super glamorous, super fabulous, vintage inspiration to start the work week. Amy of Amy Majors Photography sent us this luxurious vintage glam shoot inspired by The Old Spaghetti Factory, which is actually where the shoot takes place. And we couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with you today. The restaurant’s decor is filled with unique and elegant furniture, hand-selected antiques and a rich, bold colour scheme in poppy red and marigold yellow so this shoot’s ornate vintage styling complimented it perfectly. Just think old Hollywoood glamour, fur stoles and red lipstick, twinkling crystal and gold embellishments (with a dash of Italian flavour!) and you’re back channeling this elegant era.Vintage Glam BrideRed and Yellow Wedding CenterpieceVintage Glam Wedding DecorVintage Glam Accessories Red ShoesRed and gold Wedding InvitationsRed and Yellow Wedding IdeasVintage Wedding Table DecorationsVintage Glam ThemeRed and Marigold Wedding Favor IdeasRed and Marigold Wedding FavorsOld Hollywood Glam Wedding DecorYellow Wedding IdeasVintage Glam Wedding IdeasVintage Wedding Dessert TableRed and Yellow Wedding ColorsRed Yellow and Black Wedding Cake

From Elisa: We are so happy to share Kelly and John’s classic American engagement shoot. They were a fun and energetic couples, so for their session we wanted to give them both a relaxed activity and a fun one! Carrie Moe, of Fleurish Events planned a picnic and lawn games, and advised Kelly and John on what to wear. “We love to be outdoors!  We’re very on the go, very energetic”, says Kelly. John is a very classic all American. Vintage books, handmade bouquets, ceramic hearts and suitcases were all part of setting the scene. We styled the session around a color pallet of greens and blues (but couldn’t help throwing in a little pink with Kelly’s shoes!). The location was the Bishop’s Garden at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. It’s a very special location to Kelly, whose mother and father were married there. We can’t wait for their wedding in October! 

Thanks Elisa, neither can we!

Jane Austen Inspired Wedding Shoot

“A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.”

Jane Austen

Jane Austen Novels InspirationWell known English author Jane Austen is renowned for her historical novels and today many gorgeous films have been produced inspired by her work. I’m delighted to share with you this beautiful vintage wedding shoot inspired by all things Jane Austen. Stylishly photographed by Bit of Ivory Photography it brings to life this elegant moment in time and unequivocally captures the romance in her stories that touches our hearts.Although Jane only had a total of  six published novels they have become true role models for romantic love stories since the early 1800’s. Jane Austen’s life and the Regency era (1811 to 1820) with it’s elegance directly reflected the writings she produced.

From the Photographer: It all started when I announced that I was going to Europe. My UK graphic designer friend Melissa Love asked, “Since you and Meghan do stylized shoots, could you help me plan one here in the UK? We’ll do Jane Austen!” I think my heart stopped!  Jane Austen . . .  In England . . .  Do fish breathe underwater?  My life was made.

Gold Vintage Glam Wedding Inspiration

Gold Inspiration WeddingTime for some vintage glam inspiration with this beautiful Gold Wedding Shoot from Douglas Thompson Photo. Styled by Dreamers and Heroes it captures the elegance and glamour of yesteryear all bathed in a soft golden glow. Shot within a 150 year old winery, it combines the rustic warmth of the timber and stone surrounds with the sophistication of a beautiful vintage table setting, antique furniture and gold plated glassware. I particularly love the gorgeous up-do hair style on the bride (perfect for a vintage glam theme or classical wedding), and the simplistic organic bouquet with it’s natural foliage and neutral tones – a wonderful contrast against all the opulence. Golden Wedding InspirationVintage Glam Inspiration ShootGold Wedding Vintage InspirationGolden Vintage Inspiration ShootVintage InspirationVintage Wedding InspirationVintage Wedding GoldGold Vintage Inspiration PhotographyVintage Inspiration ShootGold Wedding BouquetWedding InspirationWedding Inspiration PicturesVintage Glam WeddingAntique Vintage Wedding InspirationAntique Wedding Inspiration

From Douglas Thompson Photo: The Golden Vintage Inspiration shoot shows vintage elements, such as miniature paintings, carnival glass, and antique furniture in contrast to non-traditional elements. The gold gown worn by the bride is the dress the designer, Cena Jane Designs, wore for her own wedding. The gorgeous gold highlights the bride, since she is after all, so very precious. Voila Floral’s bouquet does not contain traditional floral but rather organic, natural elements that accentuate the bride without competing with her. Each place setting has martini glasses instead of champagne glasses, and guests are greeted at their seats by a little touch of brandy and a hand-embroidered kerchief to catch those tears of joy.

Vintage Beach Wedding Dessert Table

Vintage Beach Wedding Dessert TableIf you’re planning a vintage or beach wedding theme, I have no doubt you’ll find tons of inspiration from this fabulous vintage beach wedding dessert table shoot I spotted on Project Wedding.  With tempting confections designed by Jenny Cookies and beautiful images by Kaylee Eylander you’ll imagine your back in the 1950s partying Gidget style! I just love how the whole spread is a fresh take on retro vintage theming. Bright pops of primary reds, whites and blues intermingle with the softer beach tones of sand, creme and silver grey. A fantastic retro blue ruffle cake with a starfish topper to add a touch of ‘wow’ to the buffet. And adorable vintage props, like the vintage suitcases, nautical cane baskets, and oil lanterns, make it a stylish seaside soiree that is ‘hanging ten’ with the best of them!
