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.

1920s Style Engagement Shoot by Rennard Photography

Hold on to your hat’s lovelies, because you’re about to be blown away! This 1920s style engagement shoot delivers nothing short of ‘wow’ appeal. Captured by the talented Rennard Photography it’s a editorial style love affair with a stunning vintage glam theme, a real engaged couple (who totally rock the 20’s era) and wait for it….not one, but two 1920s vintage airplanes which, my lovely people, are the real deal. I’m still picking my jaw off the floor from the AMAZING kiss on the runway shot! Check it out and you’ll understand!

From the photographer: Chad and Melissa met at a training meeting that Chad was training Melissa for. She felt those butterflies in her stomach and they did not seem to want to go away. The demo was complete and the lesson drifted into great conversation. They talked about the weather, Canada, travel and other various topics. After a few minutes they noticed that they were the only ones left in the conference room. Later that afternoon, she received an email from Chad. It read, “Hey there Melissa… Wanted to make sure you had my email address just in case you had any additional questions while you get acclimated to the new sales tool… Happy to help…” She knew that this email was not just an ordinary email. It was Chad’s attempt to pass on his contact information. Her heart skipped a beat and stirred up those butterflies. Their engagement session was inspired by the couples love for the 1920’s. Chad is a pilot and had a friend who owned this unique plane that only two of it’s kind exist in the world.
