Navy Blue and Pastel Pink Wedding by Studio 1250

You know what? I’m pretty much going to let this wedding speak for itself, because it’s nothing short of breathtaking! I was delighted when I first laid my eyes on this Charleston beauty from Studio 1250, and even after pondering over it several times, I can’t seem to get enough. With vintage touches and a palette of navy blue and pastel pink that balances the masculine and the feminine… it’s pure joy, pure pretty, pure wedding!

From the photographer: 

Allison and Jason’s wedding day was held at Middleton Place in Charleston. The day began with everyone getting ready at the Inn and praying that the rain holds out. Thankfully, it did. The overcast clouds were much better than pouring rain, especially for a ceremony at the Octagonal Gardens. The sun peaked through the clouds just as the ceremony began, making light for a grand entrance by Allison and her father. After the ceremony, we walked around the gardens taking advantage of the wonderful scenery. Because of the overcast lighting, I decided to shoot a little more black and white than usual. I really like the mood it created. At the reception, the band “Shimmer,” lead everyone into a spectacular evening. The band played tons of classics from Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra to all the modern hits everyone knows. They definitely rocked the house and had everyone dancing like crazy. What a wonderful wedding my good friend Chelyse Harp of Intrigue Design & Events put together, well done!

From the photographer: Maggie & Haydex met during their undergrad at UBC. They did the same degree so shared many of the same classes. They had been good friends for 4 years before they started dating. Haydex’s original plan was to propose to Maggie on a romantic getaway to the Sunshine Coast. However Maggie found out about the ring before they went on their trip. At the end, he proposed in her bedroom and she said yes!

Vintage DIY Wedding by Studio Vérité Photography

It’s pretty much impossible not to fall for this adorable vintage DIY wedding. Not only does it feature a beautiful bride with a stunning dress, a beautiful garden setting and wonderful vintage details, but the couple’s cute-as-pie little daughter as the sweet flower girl! (Who I must admit, almost upstages Mummy and Daddy’s special day!)  But, really the icing on the cake has to be the amazing snaps by Studio Verite Photography. They re-created the perfect vintage atmosphere with nostalgic images which instantly transport you back to the early 1900’s. All-in-all this is one delightful affair which will tug at your heart strings.

Bride Ana shares: 

Our wedding took place at the Twin Oaks Garden Estate in San Marcos, CA. The venue has a charming little old school house and fit perfectly with our vintage/diy theme. Our colors were blush, khaki, and grey. I love the look of burlap and it was used to wrap the bouquets, boutonnieres, and in our cake topper. Since Brian is from the desert we encorporated succulents in the flower arrangements. 

We tried to save money as well as give our wedding a personal touch with DIY projects. We made and printed out our invitations and wrapped them with twine and flowers. I printed out pictures of our couple guests, hung them on twine in a frame, and used them for our “Sweet Love” dessert bar sign. My husband found an old window pane and we used a chalk pen to turn it into our seating chart. Our finger print tree was painted by one our good friends who was also one of the groomsmen. I also bought a lot of stuff from Etsy. To save money on flowers I ordered and assembled paper tissue balls in our colors for the ceremony gazebo. The little ring bearers newsboy caps and bow ties were ordered from Etsy as well as our cake topper. 

One of my favorite memories was my sister’s maid of honor speech. She is super shy and rarely talks in front of people. (One of our cousins joked that it was the first time he’s heard her voice) I was so proud of her. Another great memory was watching our 1 year and a half daughter dancing the night away on the dance floor. She was having so much fun and made the cutest flower girl ever.. but I am biased haha. We are so happy to have these amazing pictures to remember our special day. It was perfectly us.

Vintage Hollywood Glamour in the Rocky Mountains

Up next is one for all the mountain loving and vintage loving brides from Starshine Photography. We take you to the breathtaking Rocky Mountains whilst immersed in the glamour of old Hollywood style. Eva and Jay tied the knot in one of the most magnificent backdrops you’ve ever seen. With just a handful of family and friends, they shared a beautiful intimate ceremony in Jasper National Park with towering trees, emerald green waters and the amazing Canadian Rockies as their wedding canopy. But if you think this spectacular location will make you fall head over heels, then Eva’s vintage style will definitely want to make you do back flips. Perfectly emulating the style of a 1930’s screen goddess with feather headpiece, deep red rose bouquet and crystal jewels, she could easily be mistaken for likes of Jean Harlow or Greta Garbo. It’s a glamorous pairing of Hollywood chic and Mother Nature’s elite with this superbly elegant vintage love affair.Vintage WeddingVintage Hollywood WeddingVintage Mountains WeddingVintage Glam WeddingVintage Glamour WeddingAlberta Canada WeddingAlberta WeddingCanada WeddingVintage Wedding ThemeAlberta Wedding ThemeRocky Mountains Wedding BuggyVintage Wedding BouquetVintage Rocky Mountains WeddingVintage Alberta Glam WeddingGlam Wedding ShoesVintage Wedding Walk

From the PhotographerEva and Jay had been engaged for a long time and finally decided to tie the knot in Jasper before Jay went back to war. He is in the Canadian military and is currently on a one year mission. They had a vintage Hollywood wedding set in the beautiful rocky mountains in Jasper National Park. It was an amazing way to spend Canada Day (their dating anniversary). The bride’s dress and most decorations were handmade or bought on Kijiji.

Red White & Black Rock n Roll Vintage Glam Wedding

I realise this wedding title is a mouthful, but this charismatic wedding has each and every one of these features. There’s an eye-catching wedding colour palette of red white and black, a vintage wedding theme full of stylish retro touches and finally, a unique Rock n Roll surprise at the reception. We’re delighted Mandy Paige was on board to snap all the highlights of this charming vintage-inspired affair. From the individual designs of each bridesmaid’s bouquet to the stylish black and white details, right through to the spectacle of the Grand Ballroom reception. So, sit back and enjoy the show with a vintage glam wedding that has all the romance you need to capture your heart and a dash of Rock n Roll to keep your toes tapping to the beat.Red White Black WeddingRed White Black ThemeVintage WeddingsVintage WeddingVintage Wedding ThemeVintage Glam WeddingVintage Glam Wedding ThemeRed White Black Wedding BouquetRed White Black Wedding ColoursRed White Black Wedding ThemeRed White Black Real WeddingRock And Roll Vintage WeddingRock And Roll Wedding ThemeVintage Rock And Roll Wedding

From the Photographer: Lauren and Adam’s wedding ceremony and reception took place at the historical Cincinnati Music Hall in the Grand Ballroom. The lavish decor was an exquisite backdrop to the vintage / rock n’ roll feel of the wedding itself. Music is a huge inspiration for the couple of having it at this venue was quite fitting. The grandoise floral arrangements were made by a florist friend as a gift to the family and perfectly incorporated the black and red colors of the day. The birdcage veil gave the bride a timeless look, and each bridesmaid’s unique bouquet added interest. The surprise visit from an Elvis impersonator added to the entertainment as well.

Vintage Save The Dates

When you create save the dates with a vintage theme it sets the tone for your wedding. These inventive vintage save the date cards featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs were created with vintage wall paper and ephemera to create a backdrop for a simple printed calendar highlighting the future wedding date. An assortment of miniature vintage postcards featuring various scenes of the couple’s city were also used to display their wedding website address and wedding date. To complete the whole vintage feel, it was then packaged together with a mini clothes pin – fabulous!  Check out the full DIY project and some cute vintage invitations too.

Whimsical Vintage Tablescapes

Little details are extremely effective when creating a vintage mood or theme and that is exactly what this stunning tablescape featured on Once Wed by talented designer La La Laurie had to offer. Bursting with color and full of whimsy, most of the vintage decor was sourced from vintage stores, thrift shops and markets. On display are adorable blue glass tumblers, delicate demi tass cups and saucers and paper wrapped candle holders, making the wedding table oh so quaint and packed with pretty vintage to boot! Plus, she added a gorgeous vintage purse for extra vintage style!

This lovely vintage tablescape is a great example of how to achieve a more sophisticated vintage inspired look. Rather than the expense of antique place settings, the bride made DIY fabric menus and displayed them in antique style picture frames. Each wedding table had it’s own vintage fabric design and the menus were attached to napkins with a pretty ribbon.

DIY Vintage Garlands

Decorating with vintage inspired garlands are a beautiful and extremely effective way to set the mood. Whether you are having a relaxed whimsical soiree or super chic vintage event, you can find a garland to suit. Paper florals, vintage papers and flag bunting add instant whimsy. However, if you are after something more glamorous go for sophisticated laces, crystals or luxurious looking garlands. I adore the white Mexican banners and paper decorations used in this London vintage wedding, and flag bunting just like this in pretty hues is always a winner at any event.

Looking for vintage decor with plenty of glitz and glamour? Then take inspiration from this fantastic backdrop used behind the wedding dessert table.  It was created by draping a variety of materials from a pipe-and-drape stand – rich plum colored fabric, glittering strands of acrylic crystal garland, antique crocheted ribbon and a mix of satin ribbons in ivory, deep purple and bronze satin ribbon combine for a luscious look. This fabulous design comes from this vintage inspired shoot full of great budget friendly DIY vintage ideas.

Vintage Styling Ideas

Gracing many styled events today, is the use of props and furniture from a particular era. You can either hire some great pieces from a prop supplier, or alternatively hunt your local antique and thrift stores for some great bargains. But don’t forget there is a chance you could have fantastic vintage finds right under your nose. Family and friends may have some amazing family heirlooms or collectibles in their possession which would set the scene beautifully for your vintage theme.
