Meshing Elegant and Vintage

 

In July we catered a wedding where the bride did an excellent job in meshing vintage and elegant styles. She worked off a color palate of creams, pinks, tan, and accents of teal and gold which helped connect the two styles.

Our bride hosted the reception in her parents beautiful backyard in Sandy. The backyard had a lot of different features that lent a unique and special feel to the reception. One area had a cozy fireplace with comfortable patio seating under billowy canopy; the basketball court turned into the dance floor under strings of lights; the shed housed the photo booth. It was a stunning setting on such a wonderful summery night.

 

It’s in the Details

To decorate such a large space might have been difficult, but our bride, with the help of her go-to decorator sister-in-law, made it look magical.

For the vintage feel, she used:

  • Chalkboards
  • Weathered wood signs, placards, picture frames
  • Ribbon backdrop

For an elegant feel she used:

  • Lots of different candles. Some in votive holders and some not
  • Gold. Gold votives, bowls, vases
  • Chiavari chairs and sturdy dark wood tables

Signage

The buffet tables had several different kinds of signs. One, was our handmade signage describe each item. Another was a small chalkboard that designated the different stations. And lastly, there were signs that expressed their love in a clever way.
