Retro Summer time Wedding Inspiration

retro wedding ideas @weddingchicks

This retro styled shoot was inspired by the nostalgia for summer nights. A slightly subdued color palette of pinks, aquas and reds are used in just about everything. From the beautiful flowers by Petals by the Shore to the blue ombre wedding cake, this shoot has the perfect retro vibe with a slight modern twist that we totally love!

Retro Vibe

With Lori Nansi's makeup and hair, and florals by Kelly Shore, we crafted a shoot featuring tones of subdued reds, pastel aquas and pinks. Highlighting a retro vibe with a modern twist, the model’s pastel pink hair and adorable A-line Vera Wang dress fit in perfectly with the vintage amusement park.

It's all about location!

Glen Echo was the perfect backdrop, as it happens to be the oldest amusement park in the US. It was in operation through the 1960s as such, and it retains so much of that faded vintage vibe and retro rides, signs and little treasures hidden throughout the grounds.
