Retro Style Red and Blue Wedding

Retro Style Red and Blue Wedding

By now you may have noticed that I have a lot of love for all things retro, and Brooke and Clayton’s wedding by Living Art Photographer is one of my all time retro favourites! The theme the couple chose was Rat Pack and this stems from their love of Mid Century Modern style.

Brooke was truly a DIY bride and rolled up her sleeves and took responsibility foe the littlest details. Photographer Gwendolyn from Living Art explains, “The bride also found inspiration from Handmade Weddings and created all the handmade goods and almost all of the decor at the wedding. After many trips to vintage and thrift stores, the bride and her mother created custom record labels for the vases to go on. It was all in the details for the bride, who also made candybar bags by hand and the 1950′s celebrity place cards.”
“The flowers were no exception, she said she wanted something unique, non-traditional. The creation of the flowers became a family affair… resulting in hundreds of felt and pom pom flowers.”

Brooke wore a vintage crystal beadwork “I’ve always wanted to wear a cage veil” she said, “And the homemade flower clip my mom and I made pulled it all together and made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world! The look on Clayton’s face when he saw me made it all worth it! So happy that the photos captured the uniqueness of the day so beautifully!We couldn’t agree more.
