Fun and Fabulous 50's Style Wedding

With signs and stationery by Cink Art and vivid florals by My Flower Box Events, today's styled soiree is all kinds of fun and fabulous! And we're just beyond thrilled to share the sweet snaps that Leo Dj Photography captured on this day.

From the photographer, "For this shoot we wanted to do something fresh and unique. Being in Eastern Shore Maryland, we wanted to stay away from the more typical nautical themes and colors that we see so often in this area."

Inspired by late 50's to early to early 60's movies, especially by Audrey Hepburn's timeless style and elegance, there's just so much to love about this bold and beautiful design. So let's take a look shall we?

"We watched numerous 50's movies, got inspirations from books, and grabbed ideas from all kinds of places. As we were juggling ideas, lots of creative scenarios came up."

"Ultimately, we decided on a color palette of red and sea foam green. We wanted it to be a classy look, reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's."

"For the bride, her look was complete with red lipstick, a crown, and classy satin gloves just like the ladies used to wear in that era."

"We also thought that it would be so chic to use Audrey's sunglasses along with an ivory parasol. The Bridal dress shop, Bridals by Elena, presented several styles of the era."

"We opted to showcase two completely different bridal looks for this shoot."

"My Flower Box Events also thought had the idea to place the boutonniere on his pocket instead of on his lapel."

From the bridal style all the way down to the tiniest of details... there's just so much to love!

From the statoinery designer, "We thought it would be sweet to infuse a bit of rock ‘n’ roll-styled diners popular in the 50's by using Coca Cola bottles, striped straws, and milkshake."

More from the designer, "To create the look of the "Elegant 50’s" themed wedding stationery, we researched advertisements and publications of the 1950’s era."

"The challenge was to make the invitation more formal and elegant, and still capture the fun, “campy” and more casual style of the 50’s..."

"...which is why the fonts were chosen to compliment the geometric shaped design elements that were directly from the era."

From the floral designer, "We selected mostly reds for the "pop" of color in contrast to the black, creams, and turquoise. The pink was used to help blend into the lighter shades."

"... so that the modern bride could still identify while being drawn in by the classiness of the era and overall feel of the shoot."

"We used Red Hearts Roses, Tulips (dark pink parrot and red double), red Dahlias, Anemones, Mokaras, Ranunculus, Hydrangeas, Cymbidium, Gloriosas , Plumosas, and Smilax."

We're loving this styled shoot harkening back to the idyllic 50's generation time. The soda bottles are adorable and the colors are bold and just perfect.
