Flashback Wedding

I would say “retro” themed weddings or engagement shoots are another sometimes cute, sometime tacky thing. I think there is a way to keep it chic and classy, and that doesn’t include a bowler shirt or 70’s bridesmaids dresses. It should be done tastefully. A nod to an era, not a slap in the face. There are so many beautiful styles of the 1940s, 1950’s, and even the 60s and 70s….the 80’s…probably not.

Ideas to keep in mind:

-Retro table linens

-Retro (but timeless) suits, think Mad Men!

-Mod decor

-Pin up Boudoir

-Art Deco stationary

-Vintage cars

Engagement Photo Locations

Elaborate engagement photos are a relatively new thing, and people are getting so creative with their props/locations. It’s such a cute way to really show off your style and who you are as a couple. Plus I think they are often more useful than wedding photos, as far as displaying and giving to friends and family. Anyway I thought I’d put together a collection of some pretty awesome Engagement photo locations (click photos for source)

Rainy Day Wedding

Oh the rain, it wont stop! Today it poured and poured, and the whole town is soggy. Sigh, summer can’t come soon enough. However for you brides in the northwest, or anywhere that is still having gross winter/spring rain, have no fear! There are sooo many cute photo ops for a rainy day wedding! Umbrellas, Galoshes, Puddle Jumping…love it! My best friend is getting married in a week and a half, and she is stocked with cute boots and cute umbrellas for her wedding party, just in case. I’m so excited. So Mallory, maybe you too can get some inspiration! (click photos for source)
