In this vintage sherbet wedding inspiration by Art Goans Photography, my thoughts immediately flew to weddings from yesteryear, particularly from the 1960s. The sartorial explosion was global and clearly, still stands strongly today.

In this vintage sherbet wedding inspiration by Art Goans Photography, my thoughts immediately flew to weddings from yesteryear, particularly from the 1960s. The mod movement heralded colors becoming brighter, prints were more bolder, and “slim” and “mini” became frequently-heard and seen. The sartorial explosion was global and clearly, still stands strongly today.

Kimberly Lehman from Love, Laughter, & Elegance: Wedding & Event Planning is a die-hard fan of shades of pink and peach (who isn’t, right?). When she came across her venue of choice–The Cross-Eyed Moose–she fell for the quirky country-western vibe and the overall deep brown, rustic interior would hold up well against the sharp contrast of the color palette she had her heart set on featuring. The guest table centerpiece was a very full arrangement in a large trumpet vase that had mandarin oranges and peach slices at the base, for added color. The centerpiece, boutonniere, and bouquet were comprised of coral and pink roses, pink peonies, lavender stock flowers, baby’s breath, ferns, and a variety of greenery for texture. We think Pretty Petals Design nailed a home run with these blooms.

Our most favorite element, however, was the vintage 1960s Mustang that showed up quite serendipitously. A married couple was visiting the venue for the day and this was the vehicle they were in. They graciously said yes when asked if it could be featured in the shoot, and the rest is history. Funny how things work out so well don’t they?

Love, Laughter, & Elegance’s antiquated styled shoot with brushed, aged metallics; muted colors seen in florals or other design elements; and baubles scattered throughout the aesthetic is a divine example of the now-often-seen vintage wedding trend into the current age.

We have been blessed to have our Earth Angel Styled Wedding Photo Shoot featured on Storyboard Wedding!!  The Earth Angel shoot was one of the largest and most elaborate we have produced so far, in February of 2019.  Held at the Glidden House in Cleveland, Ohio, and photographed by Stephanie and John Uptmor of Imagine It Photography, it was a wonderful day, filled with fantastic models and vendors collaborating to create amazing art.  Enjoy!

Moody Vintage Wedding Inspiration

An antiquated wedding styled shoot always has a few of these essential components: brushed, aged metallics; muted colors seen in florals or other design elements; and baubles scattered throughout the aesthetic. More is always more when it comes to vintage editorials, and we couldn’t help but realize that this is so on par with moody wedding inspirations. The design concepts for both are almost always luxe and glamorous, with an element of very slight modernity. These two styles absolutely adore their trinkets and their attention to detail, but you’ll also find contemporary styles like geometrics or sharp lines and crisp colors thrown into the mix. Love, Laughter, & Elegance’s moody vintage wedding inspiration is a divine example of these awesome vendor teams taking the now-often-seen vintage wedding trend into the current age.

Event planner Kimberly Lehman was inspired by seasonal transitioning and wanted to showcase it by bringing “heaven on earth”. We are besotted with this color palette: dusty blues, steel greys, lavender, blush, peach, and gold. It’s such a striking line-up and to follow up with that, the florals by Celestial Blooms were so stellar and lush. Large installations were created for the ceremony and reception concepts, respectively. The bridal bouquets donned a variety of blooms like lavender and blush roses, white hydrangea, silver dollar eucalyptus, protea, wheat, pampas grass, albino peacock, and white ostrich feathers. We also get to see a fun idea of having two brides with two different looks, and then outfit changes to give more variety to the viewer. Undoubtedly, after checking out the photos, this inspiration was a labor of love and we completely commend everyone on such a job well done.

We have been featured on the Pretty Pear Bride!!

In September of 2018, in honor of my 45th birthday, I collaborated with several talented vendors on a little styled photo shoot.  Usually I am the one coordinating all of the vendors,models, decor and details, but this time, I wanted to do something just for me.  The end result was a fun-filled afternoon of pampering, and I felt like a queen!  I could not have done this without my fabulous vendor team.  Thank you very much, dear friends!

The styled shoot is featured today on the Pretty Pear Bride blog!  My advice:  Never be afraid to celebrate you!  Enjoy!

STYLED SHOOT | 45 AND FABULOUS | WHATNOT SHOP PHOTOGRAPHY

Today we are sharing an amazing styled shoot. It’s a shoot from someone out of our own wedding industry community… I just love that. Check out what Kimberly of Love, Laughter and Elegance: Wedding and Event Planning.

“This is a styled shoot, celebrating the woman that I am at this point in my life. I am a wedding and event planner with over 20 years of experience. I am also a wife to a fantastic husband, and mom to two awesome daughters. I am confident in my own skin, proud of my education, accomplishments, and abilities, and damn sexy in my own right! I wanted to do something special for myself for my birthday, and to be able to share that day with others.”

What was your design inspiration? have seen other milestone birthday celebrations shared online, and I wanted to do something similar for my 45th birthday, which took place in September. I love the fun, bright colors and peppy style of Kate Spade, and wanted to bring that out in this photo session. Those shades of hot pink, blush, black and gold are some of my favorites, and are also my business branding colors, so it went along perfectly! I wanted to showcase the woman I have become at this stage of my life: educated, successful, vibrant, and damn sexy in my own right!

Describe your flowers.My flowers are a mixture of lush silk blooms, in shades of white and pink: dahlias, magnolias, jasmine, peonies and roses.

Describe your cake.The stunning cake was created by Debbie Wright of Cake Wasted. It is frosted in edgy black fondant, giving it a chalkboard effect. The cake was trimmed in narrow gold ribbon, edible gold paint drips, and blush pink silk blooms. It is easily my favorite cake!

Tell us about your attire choices.I wanted to share my sultry, sexy, and fun-loving sides in this celebration shoot. For one of my looks, I chose a my blush pink leather jacket, which was layered over a black lace bodysuit, and blush tulle skirt. Another one of my favorite looks, was my black strapless dress, to which I had my fabulous seamstress, Laurie Wallick of Lorili Design, add a fun hot pink chiffon ruffle. Of course, what birthday celebration would be complete without a gorgeous tiara! I had so much fun choosing that particular piece, and I definitely felt like a queen for a day!

Please describe any DIY, handmade or personal details.Most of the details were pretty classic, simple and elegant. That is my personal style. The cute paper pinwheels that were attached to the message board were created by Melissa Walker. The sign that I am holding in one of the photos describes some of the things that were popular and culturally relevant in 1973, my birth year. It made for a fun keepsake.

Describe the tablescape elements.The table was covered in a floor length white linen, and topped with a large black and white checked cloth. The stylish cake was placed on a clear glass cake plate, and the gorgeously decorated birthday cookies were styled on a vintage gold framed mirror tray. We added napkins in coordinating colors, and a bottle of bubbly and gold-rimmed crystal champagne flutes. We also had a couple of cute stemless wineglasses, and fun straws.
