COLOURFUL RETRO SODA POP WEDDING IDEAS
If you’ve been following Bespoke Bride for a while then you’re probably aware of how much we love to share unique and creative wedding ideas. Styled shoots are changing the way couples look for inspiration, it gives them the confidence to think outside of the box and gives suppliers the chance to really showcase their talent and skills. For me styled shoots are one of my favourite features and if today’s editorial is anything to go by, you will soon see why…
Emily White, founder of The Pear Blossom, a Utah-based wedding floral and cake studio collaborated with Ashley from Hawkeye Photography and Julie Maughan founder of Blushing Blonde Hair & Makeup Artistry to create this color-bright Retro Soda Pop Wedding inspiration!
“We love how weddings are a time for families to really dive into their history and traditions. A favorite tradition for many families, and one that has spanned across the centuries, is the tradition of making and gifting quilts to the new bride and groom.” Began Emily.
“The fabric line “Sodalicious” by Emily Herrick Designs was the perfect springboard for the inspiration behind our fun and flirty Retro Soda Pop Shoot. We wanted to bring an exciting, modern twist to age-old traditions, giving brides all the comfort of the traditions they cherish, but all the fun of putting their own personalized spin on it.”
The shoot has lots of retro touches with a hint of whimsy. From the “Spin the Bottle” quilt pattern and brightly colored jumbo balloons decorating the soda bar to the cheerful felt ball garlands, vintage cameras and sprinkle adorned polka dot cake.
The creative minds behind the shoot also chose the dress to fit the vintage vibe, a stunning tea-length dress, color pop heels, 1950’s inspired red lipstick and finger curls, and birdcage veil. This same can be said for the darling flower girls with finger-curl pigtails, polka dot skirts, bright Converse shoes, and cat eye sunglasses. How adorable are they?!
“The proverbial cherry on our flirty little sprinkle cake are the bright, fresh floral bouquet and boutonnieres and seeing those same floral vibes on our retro invitation suite, complete with a darling little old-fashioned music record registry insert.” Emily added.
“We’re ended this party on a bang with a custom-colored confetti send-off and a get-a-way moped…”
