1920s Midnight in Paris Shoot

Wedding Design

If you haven’t seen the movie Midnight in Paris yet…well, let’s just say you must add it to your queue asap. The plot is just not amazing, but it is infused with oodles of inspiration that could be very easily translated onto a gorgeous vintage wedding. The New Orleans ladies of Magnolia Pair created a wedding shoot that did just that, impeccably. Joining talents with stationer Paper Moss, event stylist Tying the Knot, and with unbelievable flowers by Bee’s Wedding and Events, amongst a slew of other great vendors, these images are sure to bring you back to a time that never was.

From Magnolia Pair: After seeing Midnight in Paris, we couldn’t get it out of our minds to recreate a 1920s style shoot. That, combined with our love for New Orleans (and Holly’s new hometown!) became our inspiration for these images. We wanted to portray an intimate and romantic feel that carries you back into what it may have been like in Paris or New Orleans in the 20s…from the color palette and the gown to the sazerac (a cocktail created in New Orleans) and bonbons. The work of several vendors made the vision a reality and we couldn’t have done it without all of them.

MyMoon Brooklyn wedding

We envisioned a warm and simple environment with a coziness for our guests. We knew this would be our chance to be around all of our loved ones at once and we wanted to create a special feeling environment. It also reflected our personal aesthetic as well. The rope was a nod to our love of water and sailing.

MyMoon Brooklyn wedding
We used natural, wooden, and organic materials. Aside from the wood and rope we used touches of grey and coral. My fiance tied tons of monkey fists knots with rope and we used antique sugar molds, cheesecloth and airplants as the main decorations.My parents were a huge help collecting all the props. My maid of honor helped me make a garland of ribbon that hung in the entry. We used extra ribbon as accents on the aisle and the bride and grooms table. I asked friends and family set up decor for me and they literally read my mind and gave me my dream wedding. I am so lucky and very grateful!
MyMoon Brooklyn wedding
We decided that we would love to get married in the neighborhood we live in. Our loved ones are so spread out to it was important to have them all gather and get to know the place we call home, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. When we stumbled on MyMoon and it was perfect. Beautiful outdoor patio and old brick walls. The staff was perfect. They are experienced with weddings and took great care of us. Kenan is the wedding guy there and he is amazing.
