Vintage Glam Barn Wedding Inspiration

Ever since my initiation into the world of barn weddings I have become totally smitten with a gorgeous barn bash. It’s something about the country location, warm rustic features and oh-so-pretty and glamorous details, that gets me hook line and sinker!  And the same goes for this fabulous inspiration shoot sent over by Rachel McNamara Photography. With vintage glam style that includes a tea length wedding dress, patent red shoes and gorgeous diamante accessories. Elegant decor such as vintage glassware and candelabras, mixed with rustic touches, and a gorgeous couple (who by the way, are married!), you have the all the ideas you need to turn a country barn party into a stylish vintage inspired soiree!

From the photographer:  From the red shoes, to the red lips, 3/4 length dress with white gloves, to the rustic charm of the table and place settings, this styled shoot, held at the Oaks Vineyard in Clovis, California, was everything we hoped it would be. Amy Jaye of Posh and Posy Events designed the look of the shoot, with red and pink florals mixed with succulents, rose glass candle holders, and brass candleabras. The table settings featured mixed vintage glassware with burlap table runners and a rustic wood table made by the owners of 3 oaks vineyard themselves! Our models were a real life married couple, who’s chemistry was unmistakable.

Romantic Country Wedding Ideas

Up next is an inspiration shoot captured by Alea Lovely Fine Art Photographer which takes your typical rustic country wedding theme, infuses it with a whole-lot-of romantic style and classical old world elegance. With sherbet hued florals by the Victorian Gardens, a stylish invitation suite by Announce This, a gorgeous array of pastel ombre cakes by Classic Cakes and a beautiful gown by Ivy & Aster with a beaded cape we are sighing over, this shoot is not only bursting with fabulous ideas but writes a whole new chapter on vintage country chic and we’re LOVING it to bits! 

From photographer Alea: A little bit of country, a little bit of elegance. I am from the Midwest and wanted to show a new way to do a Midwestern affair. We got away from the rustic look and found a more romantic way to fit this wedding. With bright colors and eye catching details, my team and I put together a styled shoot that a bride from any region could get on board with.

I loved the cake table. The three cakes with ombre details and soft pastels was a new spin on the traditional one cake. Stunning florals accented the unfinished wooden top table and the “bride and groom” mannequins brought a very unique accent to the table. The dress by Ivy and Aster was a great complement to the shoot. I was going for something elegant that could also be very casual. With laser cut layers and a gorgeously detailed beaded cape, it was a super light and airy gown and also perfectly falls in line with the bridal fashion trending right now. I had her hair done with lighter extensions to accentuate the ombre in her hair. Our hair stylist created gorgeous curls that looked effortless in the wind, and we gave her a rusted golden hair piece to pin back her hair, a nice accessory that wasn’t too overbearing. She wore flat gold tin earrings that complemented her hair, and bronzy makeup.

The ceremony area was in an open field with the center stage being wooden poles, much like you see on a country home, and decorated with florals and hay like accents. I chose mismatched chairs as a fun way to play up an intimate ceremony. The reception table was a worn blue table and we used purple napkins to contrast the colors of the florals. Old silverware was placed next to the gold-lined plates for a subtle juxtaposition of classic and antique. There were great food details like the mini open fruit pies, pecan desserts, and a peach signature drink with actual sliced peaches in it. The invites were watercolor with a modern approach to the RSVP card.

Birds Nest Themed Wedding Inspiration

Wow!…this next inspiration shoot is just Exquisite with a capital E, as far as I’m concerned. The ever so talented Vanessa from Vanessa Voth Photography is not only the master behind the lens responsible for all of this rustic spring loveliness, but she’s also the brains behind the concept. Inspired by a simple twig plate charger, she took the whole birds nest themed wedding idea to another level, using subtle yet gorgeous detailing of twigs, feathers and birdcages in a shoot which which is styled to perfection. Just like birds of feather that flock together, this talented bunch of vendors were all meant to collaborate and bring us this stunning photo gallery.

Photographer Vanessa shares her inspiration: I started dreaming of and planning this shoot months ago. It was always a dream of mine to plan, organize and photograph a styled wedding shoot that fully encompassed everything I love about weddings. Being a creative person myself, I wanted to bring a lot of DIY aspects into the shoot and unique details. My inspiration for the shoot was a twig plate charger I found – and from there the theme of bird’s nest/twigs/feathers came into existence! I ended up with an amazing team of talented vendors and the whole day and shoot could not have turned out any better! Definitely a dream come true!

Vera Wang Lovestruck Inspiration Shoot

I’m delighted to share with you this morning a stunning wedding inspiration shoot from Live View Studios. Inspired by Vera Wang’s fragrance Lovestruck it encapsulates the idea of feeling totally in love and being swept away with beauty and emotion. I adore all the soft pink ombre tones which deepen into a palette of fuschia pinks, mauves and purples. The sparkly details and silver decor that give the whole vintage look an element of glamour. And I know you’ll be smitten with the divine ombre wedding cake by Frosted Bliss Cakes and the to-die-for hairpiece from Petals by KC. Be prepared to be hit by the love-bug ladies!

Lovestruck Wedding InspirationSilver and Pink Sparkly Wedding InspirationSoft Pink Wedding InspirationPink and Silver Rhinestone Wedding Ideas

Photographers Brent & Anna share the inspiration: Our inspiration for the shoot came from seeing a Vera Wang Lovestruck perfume ad, and the falling petals photo is reminiscent of a scene in the commercial where Leighton Meester throws a bouquet from the balcony while she passionately embraces her love. Ombre arranged florals and a ruffled ombre cake, antique jewelry and an old pocket watch, a bold yet soft flower hair piece on the bride, and accents of glitter, silver, and sparkle are some of the unique details from the shoot, and our goal was for the feeling overall to be one of passion and vibrancy, much like the feeling of being lovestruck. This was a big undertaking, and we could not have done it without all of the help of the wedding vendors who contributed to the shoot. Some of the unique elements for this styled shoot was the use of antique jewelry, including an 80+ year old pocket watch, sparkly DIY favor boxes, raspberry champagne, and the oversized custom floral headpiece, unique guestbook idea, an ombre sparkly cake, and custom cake pops designed for the event with miniature flowers. We wanted it to sparkle and glitter, and everything did just that!
