When I started dreaming up this fresh take on Retro 70s Wedding Inspiration, I was roaming through Highland Row antiques one Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, Georgia. Drooling over all the treasures you can find in a vintage shop I realized how many things had a rust, orange and yellow color palette. Enter this funky monochrome styled shoot that gives ode to your grandma’s pyrex and your mother’s love for fringe. This is retro refreshed. If you dream in floral hoops and plush velvet, then this one’s for you.
We found so many vintage finds that offered both style and affordability. As we planned the styled shoot, we kept making trips to Highland Row and Kudzu for the perfect retro details that screamed 70s, yet had an equally modern vibe.
Building a dream team for this 70s styled shoot was by far the most rewarding part. Almost every wedding vendor is female owned and local to the Atlanta area. If you are looking for vendors for your wedding team, look no further than these incredible woman who aren’t afraid to get creative.
Cake Envy hand painted this simple, yet rad three tiered cake adorned with my favorite floral accessory – the Billy Ball.
Every detail was considered to elevate this rust and mustard wedding invitation suite by Amavi Studio. We’d like to think our couple would have had quirky name’s like Opal and Ronnie. Polaroids are also a super fun detail you can involve your guests in throughout your day.
Flaura Botanica owner, Laura created the most amazing florals that cater to both the boho and the vintage brides. This bridal bouquet was huge…just like our hair! These wedding florals show us how much fun we can have with bright, bold colors.
Cori is wearing Stevie from Daughters of Simone from my absolute favorite bridal shop in Atlanta, The Sentimentalist. If you’re looking for incredible stylists who can help you find your dream dress – they’re your shop. If you want to top it off with amazing hair and makeup, Jade Jamrozy is your gal.
Milieu Decor provided this lounge setup that I wish I could live in forever. Between the wicker details, the cowhide rug and the velvet couch and chair duo, I was taken back in time in the best way. Her rentals paired beautifully with our antique store details.
For our signature cocktail we featured his and her Old Fashions, aptly named ‘The Sonny & The Cher’. You smiled. We know you did!
Can we talk about how unique this floral hoop is? This is a quirky alternative to your traditional bridal or bridesmaids bouquets. They’re easier to hold, cheaper and you can hang them as decor at your reception.
Speaking of quirky, we’re in love with non-traditional options for groom’s suites. This combo from The Black Tux and Tie Bar gave us all the fall floral feels. How cool to rock an orange suite on your wedding day.
Paige wore Elizabeth Dye coupled with belt accessories from Hushed Commotion and a fringed caplet by Rebecca Schoneveld.
Paige’s vintage hair scarf was the original inspiration for the entire shoot. This piece was also a thrift store find!
This backdrop coupled with Laura’s floral design was surprisingly simple. We used sheets of craft paper, a mirror from Target and DIY yarn macrame hoops. Voila! We paired the rectangular shapes with the floral crescents, using white standing grids, to frame out an original focal point in the room. The Prissy Plate Company topped it off with a mix of ember and wicker boho tableware details.
Love this tiny detail. You can use live or dried flowers and cheap floral hoops to make a creative place card for your guests.
Woo! What a day. If you’re planning something groovy and creative for you wedding, let’s chat. I’d love to help bring your vision to life and document you and all of your personality!
