The luxury and general aura of the roaring 20’s often serves as inspiration for many weddings, but this beaming couple Did. It Right. With an art-deco inspired invitation suite, ostrich feathers accenting the arrangements and Bride’s hair, and some seriously beautiful custom signage, the opulence of this affair was perfectly captured by Michael and Carina Photography in the full gallery right here!

From Michael and Carina Photography… This is inspiration galore—a Great Gatsby wedding at its most beautiful.

Guests in flapper dresses and head pieces, chandeliers, extravagant florals and a bride in a sparkly wedding dress. Everything was meticulously styled by Emily Weddings.

Red lips and a sophisticated updo were a must. And the feathers in the bridal bouquet and the table center pieces fit the theme perfectly. The guests were welcomed with cocktails and an art deco painting of the bride and groom. The Metropolitan Players entertained with a variety of hits that kept the mood swinging as if it were a party thrown by Gatsby himself.

Jessica and Jack celebrated with their friends and family at the Cavalier Golf and Yacht Club in Virginia Beach. Their last bride and groom portraits were taken with the green Gatsby light surprising them from behind across the lagoon. The stylish couple made their big exit in a 1920s car.
