Today’s 60’s wedding inspiration is giving us some really good vibrations. See what we did there? Photographed by Rodeo and Co., this retro collaboration featured pink + aqua details, Liberty print fabrics and rattan details to our delight. Every touch is playful yet purposed, and there are no rules when it comes to color combinations or patterns for that matter. And can we talk for a minute (or a lifetime) about this intricately Liberty London floral cake? This is the kind of time machine we need!
From the stylist, Kate of Kate Dawson Events: Last winter, the gals at Rodeo and Co and Valley Flower Company and I started brainstorming a shoot inspired by 1960s fashion and color. Very quickly, our wheels started turning and the ideas for the shoot started to form. The juxtaposition of themes is one of the things I love most about event styling and design – and this was no exception. We took a classic theme and made it a little bit funky and fun by adding some unexpected colors and details.
The bride was a vision in a Self Portrait NY dress (that bow, can you even stand it!?) But she came to life when Kerry and Jennifer worked their hair and makeup magic. They embraced the 60s vibe and gave her an epic cat eye and voluminous updo! We took a pretty classic dining table design – chivari chairs, linen table cloths, floral napkins and added some zip to it, but doing it in unexpected color combinations! The orange chivairi chairs were so fun to play with – and paired perfectly with the aqua linen from La Tavola. We made custom napkins from vintage liberty print fabrics and poured drinks in beautiful polka dot flutes! It was the perfect foundation for the beautiful blooms and classic letterpress menus!
I can not say enough good things about our friends at Gus and Ruby Letterpress. They took the inspiration and went with it! Letterpressing everything from the invitation to the response cards and the signature drink signage! They also took the Liberty print fabric that we used for napkins and used it as a wrap around the save the date! The envelope liner might have been my favorite part – along with the 60s inspired names and wording. All of the details were sooo good that Meg from Rodeo and Co took it all home to keep shooting it!
To top things off, we were lucky enough to have Ashley Largesse come and film the day. It was so fun to get a behind the scenes video. I have to say, if you are considering a wedding video – do! Such a great addition to any (shoot) or event!
