The New Golden Age: Reimagining the Past for a Deco Wedding Aesthetic

Break out the black tie because this wedding editorial designed and styled by Knighted Affairs brings along with it an oh-so-chic vibe and a nod to the Golden Age of Hollywood. The Adolphus was the perfect location for this reimagined Hollywood glam shoot captured in photo and film by The Lockharts. A classic palette of white and cream was offset by bold red and stately black accents all around this styled wedding inspiration.

 

How to modernize an Old Hollywood glam look? Look for vintage inspired accessories with a twist like sheer, pearl-studded gloves or an oversized crystal hairpiece. We’ll never be over the way this one looks styled with the glamorous bridal look created by hair and makeup artists of Brite Beauty – the perfect complement to her sleek strapless trumpet gown from I dream – a bridal boutique.

 

Creating the eye-catching colorscape, Lauren of Blue Posy Design created beautiful floral pieces to lay on our head table, cake table, and a boutonnière to match the beautiful bridal bouquet and POSH Couture Rentals provided the dinnerware, linens and furniture rentals. Designed by paper pros Hazelwood Paper Co., a full invitation suite, menus, and more were put on display in a most artful flatlay. Butterfly Cakery provided a beautiful asymmetrical white wedding cake that awaited guests in three luscious tiers.

 

Keep scrolling to see it all play out and hear from a few of the talented wedding vendors that made this editorial come to life. Cheers!

From Kennedy with Knighted Affairs: “When I was designing this shoot, I wanted to incorporate current and upcoming bridal trends to create a realistic and urban feel for a current bride who is planning her wedding. For the color scheme, we focused on a neutral color palette while using bold pops of red to complement the model’s sleek silhouette and old Hollywood glam. Additionally, the invitation suite, menu, and tablescape provided an ode to the art-deco era with the gold and black accents, which provided the shoot with a traditional, yet modern look. To accompany the bride’s mermaid-style dress, she wore pearl accented gloves as a subtle nod to a former fashion statement and traditional bridal accessory. With vintage inspired-looks on the rise in popularity, the pearl gloves were the perfect addition to the shoot. I wanted brides who are planning their wedding to see themselves and their ideas in this shoot – to feel inspired by the reimagined past for their future wedding day.”

 

From Kristin with Hazelwood Paper Co.: “This invitation suite is for a modern couple, that lean a little glam. The invitation suite was overlaid with a vellum piece, tied with red velvet. The invitation and suite pieces were printed in black, with gold foil. The details insert was a geometric die cut shape, and the envelope was topped off with vintage postage.”

 

From Brittany with Butterfly Cakery: “I absolutely love everything about a white on white cake design. With the right planning, white textures strategically placed on a perfectly executed blank canvas can create a breathtaking and versatile statement for just about any wedding design. This particular design consisted of off-set tiers adorned with soft, hand-cut edible materials placed in a whimsical cascade. The cake table’s soft linen, lush florals with pops of bold colors and an acrylic stand elevated the intention of this overall design creating the perfect centerpiece.”

 

From the hairstylist with Brite Beauty: “On the first look, we were inspired with an Old Hollywood Glam vibe. I wanted to recreate a timeless look with a modern twist. I love the voluminous depth this style creates. For the second look, I live for a Party Ponytail! I went with a textured high ponytail with all the hair pulled back. This brought focus to the texture of the back of the hairstyle and made her makeup POP!”

 

From the makeup artist with Brite Beauty: “This look was entirely inspired by the color palette of our beautiful tablescape. The pops of red and orange demanded a clean and fiery bold lip! But this red lip has a twist utilizing red orange versus classic candy red giving a nod to the 80s Palmer girls. The lip is MAC Cherry Lip Pencil, MAC Feels So Grand Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick topped CB96 Frost lipstick just in the center for a pop. The eyes were wrapped in bronzes and browns with minimal eyeliner leaving the lips to be the star of the show. Lastly, we created long-lasting and glowy skin by draping the cheeks with a mixture of pinks and peaches. Our model’s look was rooted and 80s inspiration but can stand up to the current trends in fashion and makeup.”
