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.

60s Glamour Wedding Inspiration

Looking for some glamorous 1960s wedding inspiration? Well this fabulous dose of vintage eye candy I spotted on Love My Dress should pretty much do it and then some!  The creative behind the vision is Swedish stylist Madelin Downey and her inspiration for this imaginative shoot was high society 60’s decadence meets rock n’ roll and French chic. Don’t know about you, but I’m totally lusting after the blue tulle gown!

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.
