Mid Century Modern Wedding Inspiration

Wedding Design

Photos by:

This wedding inspiration shoot, designed and styled by Jenna Trapasso of Red White and Green Photography and by our very own Ashley Hayward, is bursting at the seams with mid century wedding ideas for both retro and modern brides alike. The paint inspiration is carried through and through, from their paint-a-cupcake to their paint by number guest book – which is a doozy of a DIY project. Oh, and that good looking couple? They graced our site many moons ago on their wedding day.

From the photographer, Jenna of Red White and Green Photography: This shoot brings to life the harmony that was created in the 1950’s between tradition and modernism. It is overflowing with wedding ideas for the vintage-meets-modern-bride.

The midcentury modern movement was defined by incredible works of art and unique architecture, so the shoot incorporated some fun artistic elements beginning with a RSVP card that allows guests to draw the meaning of love… and ending with paint-your-own-cupcakes.

The bride and groom were styled with the 50’s sub-culture in mind. Instead of the classic Audrey Hepburn wedding look from the 1950’s, this bride and groom are showing off a look that is more reminiscent of the modern fashion and design that began creeping into culture in the middle of this era.

Beaver Creek Cabin Wedding

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

We only need three words to describe this wedding from Carl Zoch: Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. From bride Monica Raymund’s Oscar de la Renta gown to the cake adorned with baby blue flower details to the incredible Colorado night sky, we’re head over heels for every aspect of this cabin fête. Get ready for some serious dress envy!

From the bride, Monica: I envisioned a rustic yet elegant wedding week end in the Colorado Rockies. I kept saying “Midsummer Night’s Dream….. with heels.”

We really let the Colorado mountains and Mother Nature inspire our feel for the wedding. No theme was necessary: the outdoors spoke for themselves and we really just wanted to highlight the beautiful landscape.

I stuck to cream/linen & sage green as my primary colors with a little dark brown to bring in the aspen trees and earthy tones of the outdoors. Even though I’m a pretty colorful person, I was surprised by my rather muted palate. Neil REALLY wanted to see some color at the wedding, so we designed our center pieces with Colorado summer flowers (we got married in June!) to add a pop of color.

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? SPOIL YOURSELF! You work so hard to put this memorable day together that you deserve time alone, a spa day, a vacation, whatever you fancy! My husband and I try to treat each other like gold, as all partners should try to do in order to have a happy marriage. But I’m a big believer in treating yourself like gold too. Don’t be afraid to take care of YOU, because when the wedding day comes, you want to be as relaxed and happy as possible!

Wedding Music:
For our ceremony, we asked our dear friend and World Master Cellist, Timothy Eddy, to play a variety of pieces that he chose for us. It was an honor because he is one of the most famous cellists in the world and he lent us his talent for that special day.
First Dance: David Garza’s “For Keeps.” He played all the music for cocktail hour and one set after dinner. Then Sergio Vargas took over for the rest of the evening and we danced merengue and salsa all night long!

Beaver Creek Rehearsal Dinner

Rustic Weddings

Photos by:

While we love being able to see and share wedding days aplenty, it’s so nice when we get to see other elements — such as one of our favorite traditions, the rehearsal dinner. It’s that last breath before the big day you get to spend with your closest family and friends, taking a moment to relax and soak it all in. Before we share Monica and Neil’s ah-mazing wedding from Carl Zoch, we’re so honored to share their early wedding festivities! Recognize that gorgeous bride? Monica is an actress of Lie to Me. You can picture how loud we squealed when she told us she took inspiration from our blog. Full wedding + story coming soon!
