This wedding, sent to us via Lawrence Photography, has an amazing, subtle, 1920s boho appeal, and I had to post the photos even though overall there are only a few truly deco/vintage touches. Because yes, I know the site is technically called Deco Weddings but I DO NOT CARE when it comes to warm and wonderful wedding pics like these.
Come on! I love it. Winter weddings are always a treat, (winter wedding in Wisconsin? Extra amazing) and these two seem like a fantastic couple. Their wedding photographer shared that “in lieu of a first dance, C & J opted for a Matrimonial Mile around the Urban Ecology Center. Gin & Gingers, Montana & Wisconsin craft breweries, coffee from Colectivo, baked goods from Troubadour Bakery, and great conversation filled the venue.” The whole day looks somehow simultaneously stunning and casual. What a warm and lovely winter wedding!

Unsurprisingly, we see a lot of art deco invitation designs around these parts. And more often then not they’re just… OK. They hit all the “art deco” marks, they check off the checkboxes, but they’re just… nothing special. Which is the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of how I feel about every invitation suite at Atelier Isabey, including this one:
This one is very, very special. It’s called the Gershwin, and once again: I am in love. Art deco invitation PERFECTION. We featured another art deco wedding invitation from this studio before (the Ellington), and honestly, I just think their work is so stunning I basically can’t stand it and need to have eleven more weddings so I can use a different invitation suite of theirs for each one (don’t tell my husband thanx).
The gold foil, the letterpress, the fonts… I love it all. Simply gorgeous.

It was almost impossible to narrow down the photos to feature from this incredible 1920s style wedding inspiration shoot sent to us by emma cleary photography. Why? Um, because every single image is a shining beautiful beacon of perfection that almost hurts my eyes to look at….? Yes.
See? If you’re going to do a 1920s style inspiration shoot, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have a flawless “bride” and “groom”, but this shoot has that and so much more. The dresses! The hair! The makeup! And the location (the historic India House in New York). Every detail is simply stunning. Click on any of the images to see them full-size, and enjoy!
