1950’s Style Wedding Every Vintage Bride Will Love

At first glance, you might assume this wedding is from decades past. But sure enough, it’s a modern day affair inspired by 1950’s, Mad Men style charm. The bride opted for a nontraditional silhouette paired with the prettiest hat veil and nailed the vintage chic look to a T. See it all in The Vault from L&L Style Photo.

From The Bride…What did you envision your wedding being prior to planning?

We definitely wanted a more intimate wedding and something that reflected our values as a couple. We chose a forager’s theme because we first met at a foraging event. We shared a little bit of our world on that special evening – from the food, which was vegetarian and vegan to the instax photos, which shared our love for all things analog and old-school.

What was your color palette and your style vision?

For the color, we chose lots of green with splashes of white and crimson flowers. The white and green complimented the venue, which had a 1950s, mad-men era charm to it. In terms of style, we wanted something alternative but classic at the same time. We didn’t want to spend too much energy with the minute details that others were convincing us were absolutely necessary but weren’t important to us.

What unique elements or DIY details did you include?

Our DIY scattered fruits and nuts arrangements (consistent with the forager’s theme) by my maid-of-honor and our playful, culturally themed children’s table.

What was your favorite moment? Your favorite crafted detail?

I wanted to create a signature scent for my wedding. We used 20 Diptyque Baies candles and it was definitely worth the splurge. When we entered the dining room, guests were greeted with the smell of Baies – it was truly amazing.

Tell us about your flowers, your gown, your favors, your cake, etc.

Our flowers were sourced by our floral designer, Colie Colleen of Flowerscout – she’s so talented! She works with local flower farms in the Hudson Valley to offer an array of locally sourced seasonal flowers for all her clients. I have an aversion to big clusters of flowers and she was able to create these amazing arrangements that were truly organic and represented the natural greenery of a garden. My gown was self-designed after it was purchased from Net-a-Porter. I worked closely with Ignacio, my tailor, to create the classic 1950s silhouette. He’s the industry’s best kept secret and has done alteration work for Chanel for years now. I don’t like traditional veils, so I went with a hat instead. Shoes – I’m all about comfort and moving around, so I had to switch to sneakers in the middle of the night (totally unplanned). I’ve had those sneakers for years and they’re over-worn, but they’re super comfortable and perfect for dancing away in the night. We didn’t have wedding favors, but guests were encouraged to take home the Baie candles.

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be?

I was all about everything being perfect, but one thing I would do differently is to relax and just enjoy the process. Everything planned and unplanned will be awesome in the end. AND…don’t forget to ask your local talent (friends, family, etc.) for help.

Gold + Lucite + Green = Wedding Dreams.

If you’re looking to inject a bit of modern romance into your upcoming celebration, here you go. The ultimate wedding inspiration dreamed up by CCL Weddings And Events that you’ll want to share with your vendors pronto. From the lucite invitation, to the skyline ceremony, Ruth Eileen Photography has captured it all to share and we’ve got it waiting for you in The Vault!

From CCL Weddings And EventsWith a view of a skyline like this, the W Loft in Brooklyn is a minimalist space that naturally captures the beauty of New York amidst the hustle and bustle. For this styled shoot we featured elements such as marble, plexiglass and gold accents to represent the classic, modern bride who loves timeless styling and contemporary elements.

We wanted the reception table to be more than a table with a linen so we teamed up with Taylor Creative for their glass tabletop. Their leather benches and plexiglass armchairs were stunning with the table! Marble accents and gold dinnerware graced the furniture from Taylor Creative, while Wild Floral Designs brought life to the shoot by incorporating loosely gathered palm leaves into the florals. They also created an impeccable arch that was intentionally not connected to truly accent and frame the skyline behind the ceremony altar. Along with the leather benches used for seating and plexiglass boxes filled with fauna, the ceremony space was designed to have a clean look because the couple and the cityscape would be the signature touch to the overall look of the wedding. The model wore a jaw dropping gown from Sarah Seven, embodying nothing short of elegance. Sugar Couture designed and created a stylish marble cake to match the theme of the shoot. Small Paper Co designed a stunning invitation suite produced by Aether Workshop with an acrylic invitation and a gold mirrored backing. Any wedding event wouldn’t be complete without “his” and “hers” cocktails with custom cocktail stirrers designed and created by Letters to You that read “bottoms up” and “l’chaim.” Our team could not have created such a spectacular shoot without the help of all the talented vendors who made it all possible!

From the Bride… Moses and I have known each other since high school, but our story really started after college. Superbowl ’93 and ’94 rivals brought us back together, after many conversations of who has the better team. Go Bills!

Before getting engaged, I never imagined what my dream wedding would be like. Moses and I both have a love for 1920’s Gatsby fashion, so we knew we wanted our wedding to have that feel. We did a lot searching online for the perfect venue and after many visits to other venues, we finally found the Bourne Mansion. The Bourne Mansion used to be the Singer (sewing) family’s mansion and since I went to school for fashion in New York City and we wanted our wedding to feel like a big Gatsby party, it was a perfect match.

Getting married in New York opened up our options to some amazing vendors. First, our band, the East Coast from OmniPop Talent Group. OmniPop Talent Group was so great to deal with, extremely communicative and made the process incredibly easy and the East Coast band made our wedding! We got so many compliments and praise about their performance. Secondly, our florist, Flowers By Brian, made our venue come to life. The arrangements were stunningly beautiful. Last but certainly not least, our photographer, Rich Ciro from Ciro Photography who captured our day so beautifully. As we were going through each picture we were brought back to the moment and got to relive the day! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. His attention to detail in refining every single picture is amazing. And not to mention the thoughtfulness and artwork that was brought to each picture.
