Fabulous Mid-Century Wedding Inspiration
KIRILL BORDON PHOTOGRAPHY
Chic Vintage Brides is all about timelessly elegant and vintage wedding inspiration for modern brides, so today’s shoot simply couldn’t be any more perfect! Fabulously retro mid-century styling with more than a dash of modern, we’re talking geometric shapes in the most beautifully contrasting brights, it had me smitten from the very first image…..
This super stylish shoot was the vision of Smitten Events and was inspired by something as simple as geometric print fabric! But the end result is anything but simple. Against a backdrop of mid-century furniture every element is elegantly co-ordinated from the stationery by Lele Chan Designs, to the fabulous geometric cake by The Cake and the Giraffe. The stunning tablescape is packed with fresh Spring florals: daffodils, hyacinth and tulips sit alongside ranunculus, poppies, roses and succulents in a rich palette of tangerine, gold, yellow, green and cream; all created by Garden Party Flowers and a perfectly pretty contrast to the modern tableware from Lonsdale Event Rentals. The gals at Smitten Events explain, “Continuing with the geometric theme, we used square dinnerware and angular cutlery, octagonal napkin rings with triangle-shaped place cards, and made triangular sculptures in bright colors to add pop to the natural wood harvest table. Even the Bertoia-style dining chairs, a mid-century staple, fit the geo-theme with their diamond pattern.” And of course no vintage wedding is complete without a stylish getaway, and you can’t get much more stylish than a magenta 1963 Buick called Pink Betsy, all decked out with a tin can garland! All captured perfectly by Kirill Bordon.…. I just know you are going to love every single detail as much as I do!
