A vintage autumn fairytale wedding (with a bit of parkour!)

The main theme was surrounding the fairytale idea. We got married in a castle, so even though I'm not super into princesses or fairy tales, it all just fit together. I also wanted it to feel like a real fall wedding, since fall is my favorite season. It was a little tough since the only season you really notice in Texas is summer! We centered our color palette around autumn tones so that people would just walk in and know that this was a fall-themed wedding.

Wait until you see the vintage kitsch at this quirky artist wedding

Sarah and Adam are two talented artists who decided to get married in the quirky compound of Hicksville Pines in Idyllwild, CA. Guests were each given each a ceramic mug that Sarah made, and her wedding altar was something borrowed from a friend that had used it before. Just wait until you see all the retro centerpieces, awesome kitsch details, and granny chic (one of my fave styles!)…

This wedding in Calgary channeled the 1970s and all its macrame glory

Retro decor finds, tons of DIYed macrame details, and a '70s-inspired theme were at the center of this wedding's aesthetic. But it was the love that got us in the end. Sweet and meaningful song choices, a sweet first look, and some awesome dance moves swept us away in Shannon and Andy's macrame wedding in Calgary. Don't miss their sweet young daughter in her flower crown, too!

Rockabilly meets Doo-Wop meets vintage cars at this retro wedding

I have always loved and been fascinated with the 1950s especially the pin-ups, music, swing dancing, and custom hot rods, so Garrett and I decided to have a rockabilly/Doo-Wop-themed wedding that also incorporated our love for cars.

The ceremony site was decorated with the black/red/white rockabilly theme. To keep the guests thinking this would be a traditional wedding, the DJ played traditional classical music while the guests were taking their seats. After all were seated, the DJ who was actually a Wolfman Jack Impersonator who welcomed everyone in an authentic Wolfman Jack fashion.

A retro musical wedding with 1960s revival & rock 'n' roll inspiration

Music is a huge part of our lives and I let the artists who inspire us most influence the design. We drank whiskey from tea cups and had the processional set to "Fawn" by Tom Waits. His lyrics were tucked in here and there. I weaved in my love of kitsch and vintage by collecting mix and match china for 200 people (it took almost two years!) and featured a unique, cool set of vintage salt and pepper shakers on every table. We had whiskey bottles (all enjoyed with friends and family) and vintage vases that we collected for flowers.
