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.
Our Autumn Romance styled wedding photo shoot, that has been featured on Chic Vintage Brides, has also been featured on the main page of the Aisle Society website!! We have been very blessed to share this special styled shoot with you. Enjoy!!
Today’s shoot sees us say a sad goodbye to Fall for another year in the most fabulously creative way possible. Inspired by one of my favourite films, and featuring a black wedding cake, a truly unusual engagement ring and not one but two beautiful brides, this editorial is nothing short of magical….
By way of an introduction, here is photographer Keli from Shiny Penny Studios….. “I love the autumn season! I love the variety of colors on the trees and plants, the crisp air, and this sense of magic I always feel. I also love the movie “Practical Magic”, so we wanted to evoke a sense of the film with a nod to the season with a color palette of black and deep emerald greens with touches of copper, to make our own magic.
With so much gorgeous foliage in and around the Spring Hill Historic estate, we added simple floral details. The lush bridal bouquet featured creamy white roses, orange lily, hypericum berries, coral dahlias, fiery red alstroemeria, Italian ruscus, and hints of lavender.
We also used Italian ruscus, large pine cones, and teasels on the dining table, to add a natural element to the strong color palette.
Our table was layered with black and emerald green linens. The black vintage chairs are part of the Spring Hill Historic Home estate, and are replicas of the original 200 year old dining room chairs. The table settings were eclectic, with copper charger plates, vintage green glass plates, and dark green napkins that matched the tablecloth. The vintage silver cutlery also belongs to the Spring Hill estate. The glassware included modern black goblets, and vintage cut green glasses.
This styled shoot featured an eclectic mix of vintage and modern gowns. Our bridal gowns were very different in style, as are our models, Sammy and Sarah. Sammy wore a beautiful modern ivory lace gown with a beaded empire waist and bodice, cap sleeves and court train. In her hair, we added a lovely beaded headband and she wore a vintage Art Deco necklace and earrings, which added lots of sparkle.
Sarah donned a stunning vintage gown from the 1960’s. It was an ivory chiffon over satin crepe gown, with a rosette trim at the waist, and court length train. Soft ruffles adorned the portrait neckline, the long fitted sleeves, and the front of the gown. Around her wrist, we added a vintage necklace as a bracelet, with deep green cabochon stones.
The gorgeous cake was a tall three-tiered delight! Placed on a vintage copper cake stand, the cake was covered in dark fondant, to match our color scheme. The bottom layer of the cake was covered in a dark forest green fondant, while the top two layers were adorned with simple, elegant black fondant. The only decorations on the cake were a copper colored hoop with lush white, burgundy, and coral blooms, and a script “Mrs & Mrs” cake topper. “
Isn’t it fabulous?! I just love the light and the pretty palette is so romantic! Thank-you so much to the wonderful team listed below who lent their creative talents to bring this incredible story to life. And a special thanks to Keli of Shiny Penny Studios for capturing it all so perfectly.

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!
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.
